Hi and welcome to FZ. Apologies for the delay in responding to you!

I hope your appointment with your consultant on 22nd April was good and that you got some answers to your questions.

Your FSH result of 8 is good. Under 10 is generally seen as being fine.

If your Consultant suspects you are not ovulating, you may be prescribed clomid. There's a great clomid board here where you can get lots of support if that's the road you go down.

As for conceiving naturally after a reversal, your Consultant would be the best person to advise. I have no experience in this area, but would guess that the operation wouldn't be done if they thought there was no chance of success.

Wishing you the best of luck on your TTC journey.
