    Hi, I’ve had four babies in my twenties and now I’m 41 and remarried to an amazing man so we’d like to have our own. We had one IVF cycle that didn’t produce viable embryos after PGS testing, and so we are about to try again.

    It was suggested that I have a Hysteroscopy after a possible fibroid was observed on my HSG. My question is, how long after the hysteriscopy will I have to wait before being able to do the next IVF cycle? There is so much mixed info out there… I don’t want to wait 6 months before starting. At my age I can’t afford to!

    We had similar case. Failed attempts of IVF and an FET. Now the Dr suggests hysteroscopy. I have heard, hysteroscopy does improve the chances of getting positive results. Any idea on which day of cycle it has to be done or one has a liberty to do it at any day once the M.cycle stops.

      It’s normally done after menstruation. After period the lining of the uterus won’t be thicken and it will be easy for free Access to the uterus.
      Some doctors does hysteroscopy before ovulation, that’s a week after period.

    Hi guys.
    Been ttc for 5yrs. Finally i decided to join a fertility clinic. Did an HSG to make sure my tubes are cleared, however my uterus was unclear so I was scheduled an Saline Sonogram right after. That’s when they found several polyps & a thick lining of my uterus. 2 weeks later (yesterday) I did my Hysterocopy/D&C… & clean out everything. It went pretty well. I was asleep the whole time. Bad cramps after I woke up but pain med fixed that right away.
    Waiting on my follow up at my clinic for the next step.
    My question is… Do i try on my own for my BFP or I go straight for the IVF?
    & How long is the wait time for the 2nd IVF if the 1st failed?
    Thank you.

    Ps. I’ve never been pregnant b4.
    Hubby also went for semen analysis.

      Whichever way you’re choosing, give at least 6 months gap before trying for baby.
      After failed IVF, one could wait for 6 months or one year so that the body would recover from those hormonal injection and the womb will be calm enough from the stress of thickening.
      Even the ovaries will be calm from the stimulation it went through. Trying natural isn’t bad, but wait at least 6 months. Baby dust to you!!!!!

    Hi I have had 2 failed Ivf and my doctor couldn’t explain why because My uterine lining looked so fine in size, position and whatever. My FET was first grade. Long story short…It was a BFN twice. My Obs suggested I do a hysteroscopy to increase my chances. I was mad at not having done that operation first before I spent all my dime on 2 failed cycles. Do I have to cough another $2000 for the hysteroscopy. However I want to be optimistic that results will be worth the two times miss….xoxoxo

    Hi. We have unexplained infertility and 2 failed I’ve treatments. I have recently seen a doctor (abroad) for a second opinion and he told me I should have a hysteroscopy. The NHS and Nuffield have never mentioned this to me in the past. I am due another round of ivf but this doctor told me it’s crazy to do it without a doing a hysteroscopy first.

    My question; how long did you have to wait on the NHS for a hysteroscopy? I too want to demand this!

      I have had 3 failed IVF’s (2 fresh and one FET) before I have my 4th and final FET my hospital suggested a hysteroscopy. They said it may take 3-4 months on the NHS however I think I must have got a cancellation as I was only on the waiting list for a week. I have my hysteroscopy on Friday. Good luck.
