Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

what would you like help with?

Dr Owen :

Well with blocked tubes - you are only able to get pregnant with IVF....

Dr Owen :

So to prevent miscarriages you need to have further testing.....

Dr Owen :

So you need testing for your thyroid and if abnormal this can be treated.

Dr Owen :

and you need to be tested for PCOS - polycystic ovarian syndrome and if you have this - then you should be on Metformin.

Dr Owen :

You also should be checked for progesterone - you might be low and might need this to stay pregnant.

Dr Owen :

and finally you need to be tested for Thrombophilias - these are blood clotting disorders - and there is one that can affect you later in life that is Acquired - called APA - Anti Phospholipid Antibody syndrome - and these can all be treated too to prevent miscarriages.

Dr Owen :

So before you try another round of IVF - get all these tests done.

Dr Owen :

I hope this helps

JACUSTOMER-o1uvdg5d- :

Thanks for thst but ivf has me broken in every way I couldnt go through thst. I was just cligging to the hope that there may be something new to fix them little tubes even thing of those herbal tampon but I know its another gimmick.

Dr Owen :

okay well there is ONE way to fix the tubes - the procedure is called 'Recanalization' and an ob/gyn should be able to do this.

Dr Owen :

there is no gimmick to fix this - so you are correct tampons do not help

Dr Owen :

Essentially it is like opening a clogged drain for a sink -

Dr Owen :

it is fairly simple to do -

Dr Owen :

I hope this helps
