  • It is very possible that scar tissue could have formed in areas that you don't want it to. I had a ruptured appendix that required two surgeries. The right ovary suffered some damage from the surgery and infection. Plus, I ended up with endometriosis that I never felt. The RE found lots of scar tissue when he went in for the first surgery. It blocked my tubes, was on my ovaries, and I had an endmetrioma in the left ovary. I ended up conceiving via IVF and my twins are going on 4yrs old.

    If you haven't already, I highly recommend getting at least a consult with a reputable reproductive endocrinologist...fertility specialist. They may be able to clear out blockages in your tubes if there are any, or do a laparoscopy to remove scar tissue that may be interfering.

    Good luck!
