I know it is hard to hear that you may need IVF and it is a hard adjustment. At the same time, given your age and the issue that has prevented you from getting pregnant, it is also nice to know that you can still get pregnant even with the blocked tubes and that they doctors have a solution for waht has prevented you int he past from getting pregnant. Everyone on this board are wonderful and super supportive and you will find some great women to go through the process with so it is less scary and overwhelming. Good luck.

I agree with catwoman. I know it is hard, but Try to look at it is a positive, i.e. "Now I know whats wrong, and we are going to work through it and get our :bfp: ". Do as much research as you can on the RE you're attending before your appointment, as well as questions you want to ask, etc... Once you have your initial consult, things can move pretty quickly (if you are ready and want them to), so if you're as prepared as possible it will be a good thing. Good luck! IVF gave me my two little miracles and now that they are here, I look at them and thank God for the doctors and nurses who helped me every step of the way.
