Hysteroscopy after 1 failed attempt?

Hi
has anyone been advised to have a hsteroscopy following a failed IVF cycle, we had DIVF which resulted in a BFN a few weeks ago, follow up with con suggested that I have a hysteroscopy to rule out polyps etc.. which could affect implantation.

As I have PCOS, con said that higher estrogen levels could cause polyps and as we had 2 great quality embies, he was suprised that it had not worked and he has sneaky feeling there is a reason way ?(

Is this the logical next step? My GP is not 100% sure that I need a hysteroscopy so my con and GP are arguing about the next step....very frustrating for us X(

any advice would be great

thanks x

RE: Hysteroscopy after 1 failed attempt?

I have no experience of this at all, but I think the question I would be asking myself is 'what harm is there in having the hysteroscopy?'

if there are no negative consequences of having it but potentially a positive consequence (even though your GP and cons are arguing about this), then I think I would go for it.

Hi Sunflower,
It is a tricky one...I don't know. The chance of a polyp being found and being in the wrong place is probably quite small, but a small chance is significant given the fact you are going through IVF and FET.
Sorry hun, not much help I know.

Why does your GP not want you to have it. If you not had it before I would suggest it might be worth having one just for peace of mind before you try again. As you know there are risks involved with all the procedures maybe that is the reason GP is worried. But it is important to rule out all causes of failure before you embark on your next attempt.

Thanks ladies
I agree with you all, it is well worth having the hysteroscopy to rule out any probs and to have peace of mind that all is OK in there for future embies :smile:

Im just annoyed with my GP for throwing a spanner in the works! not sure why he is acting like this, clinic is private so could possibly have procedure done there, but the fertility pot is empty :sadface: so we were relying on GP to refer us on NHS at least for this one procedure, we have paid for everything else, thought they may have been sympathetic - obviously not! :sadface:

He sounds like a pain! Can the consultant refer you himself? They normally work in nhs hospital as well.

I think there's no harm in looking.... blowkiss
