    Question Blocked right tube.. Lap or clomid

    Hi all-I am new to this forum.
    I am very confused as I have had mixed opinions from doctors...
    I was/am on metformin for 3 years now as prescribed by my gyn. I have pcos and have been trying naturally for a year.. My gyn prescribed clomid 4 times and never did ovulation tracking.they said as I got my periods every 37days so I must be ovulating...I met the infertility doc after wasting 1 year with gyn with no results...my doc A(infertility doc) did all my tests and also did hsg which showed blocked right tube..as the radiology showed a structure it was confirmed it was not a spasm.. He immediately suggested lap and hysteroscopy
    . As I never had a correct ovulation tracking done I wasn't sure if I wanted all these surgery's..
    Now met doc B ,who suggested not doing lap or any surgery and only doing minimum (50mg) clomid with ovulation tracking... I really want to know which route to take without wasting any more time.
    Doc A also said as my tube is proximal blocked(near the uterus), not doing lap would lead to miscarriage. Doc B said the statement about miscarriage is completely a myth. Am confused... What do I do..?

    Hi there,

    I am not a doctor, but I would definitely recommend having the laparoscopy done. Worst case scenario, they don't remove anything and can't find a blockage. At least you would know for sure and not have to worry about the potential for increased miscarriage risk. Is the second doctor also a Reproductive Endocrinologist?

    Good luck!
    Kim

    Thanks Kim for your response.Yes both the doctors are one of the best in the area and are both infertility experts.
    But should i have to get a lap done for a proximal block which is actually not even going to affect anything according to Doc B which would result in a scar and removing it would delay things by 3 to 4 months to heal.
