If that truly is your FSH on CD3 then it truly would be unethical for Chapel Hill to do the tubal reversal.

Well, I think it needs to be redone. Its got to be wrong. And besides, the nurse there told me that they did not require the FSH to be done but she did it for me because I mentioned it. She said all they require was the Labs that are posted on their website.

If you feel better having it repeated then you should.

Well it seems like this tubal reversal isn't meant to be

Frankly, I am shocked that Randine Lewis would give such a negative response. I read her book and she talks like anyone can get PG and hardly ever says age is a factor. If you are still O'ng, you can get PG. I agree with all the PPs and would for sure get that FSH tested again. How old are you, btw? Keep pursuing this and don't give up until you're sure. Is IVF an option? Good luck.

I know, I was really surprised by her response as well. I am 45. I still have periods but they are irregular. I thought about getting an ovulation test kit?

as far as I know, irregular cycles should not prevent you from charting or using an OPK. A lot of the ladies here do one or both, so maybe one of them will chime in here with some advice.

Lisa,


I would get that OPK kit with 20 in a pack and start about a week after your period. Do it every day and every month. If you can afford 18.00 per month, that is, I know it can get expensive. But there is no side effect to doing it every day. I had a very regular cycle but I still used that kit most every day around my O time so I would know for sure. If you track the results on Fertility Friend, maybe you can see a pattern?


I know of a couple that had sex every single day for like four months until they got pg so they would not miss the O day! Not recommending that, just saying that particular couple was very determined! But it worked for them.


And what about IVF or IUI? Are those options? I don't know if Tubal Ligation makes that impossible? Seems like IVF should still work?
