Closed Cervics

Postby Babysoft » Wed Aug 10, 2005 2:43 pm

Hello All,

I have posted a few threads before, but since I am not actually having a procedure (IUI or IVF) performed anytime soon, I decided to try and meet some new friends on this thread.

Anyway I am 28 my DH is 29, ttc 4 years. I already have one child...she is nine. I have been going to an infertility nut-job for 3 1/2 years. I started realizing he wasn't the best doctor for my situation when I came in for my injection and he asked me if I needed a refull on birth control. Anyway I thought I had an IUI perform in July, but I went to an appointment at a highly recommended feritlity clinic yesterday and I found out my cervics is completely closed. :evil:

This was discouraging and truly wonderful all at the same time. I say that because before this happened my infertility was always unexplained. That drove me crazy...every test and operation that had been performed never gave me the needed information. It just couldn't be explained! I felt like sticking my head in the tiolet bowl. Well finally after the visit yesterday, I now know the cause of my infertility and it is a simple 15 minute procedure needed to fix the cause! I am so HAPPY :lol: But (there is always a BUT) I am pissed of because I also found out that there would have been no way my previous nut case doctor performed an IUI, because I cervics isn't open! Which means I paid for something that could not have been done. Fortunately for me, I had a laparascopy done in 2003 and once I receive the hospital notes on that procedure, I will found out whether or not my cervics was closed then as well. If it was, I will be filing a complaint and lawsuit against my doctor. I know that someone could do something so horrible when someone is at their most vulnerable state, is shocking!

Anyway on to brighter things...I will be having my operation 2 days into my next cycle and hopefully I will be pregnant soon after.

Has anyone ever heard if my case of infertility. And for all the women who have unexplained infertility, please ASK your doctor to check and make sure your cervics is open!

Hi, I have not been on the boards for ages so sorry if this is all old news now.

I also have what they call a "tight" cervix, basically they can't even get the catheter through. They have tried and it is so painful you would really know about it. The first time they realised was when they went to do the blue dye test, they couldn't get the catheter in and the consultant said if they forced it in my body would go into shock and it could be very dangerous.

When I have IVF ( had 4 failed attempts now) I have to have what they call a transymetrial transfer. This is where they inject the needle straight through the wall of the uterus ( makes your eyes water doesn't it). It does lower our chances of success slightly.

I don't want to put a dampner on things for you, but i had an operation to stretch my cervix and it didn't work. If your operation is different please will you let me know as it could be something that I could ask about.

I really hope it works for you and that you get that so wanted child. If you want to know anything else about transymetrial please ask me, not all hospitals do it. At least if the op. doesn't work for you, you know that there is another option. Good luck xxx

Hi all,
I'm very new to the forum...So I am not aware of many new terms too..

Me and DH have been trying for about 18 months now, with no luck...We talked to our Ob-gyn regarding this...And she suggested to perform a few tests on us...

I was scheduled for a HSG test ( in which they check the tubes), but she was unable to perform it...She said that the opening in my cervix is so small that she is unable to even pass the catheter into it to inject the dye....With repeated attempts for couple of times, she could not complete it successfully...

She has referred me to a Reproductive infertility specialist for the further tests...I've no idea what all will be done..

Has anyone ever faced this problem before..??

Please help
