History: when I was 17 I had my right fallopian tube and ovary removed because of a cyst. I had my son shortly after. In 2008 I had an ectopic pregnancy in my left fallopian tube, which is now completely blocked.
I had my first appointment with our RE yesterday. She decided is would be to risky to try and repair that tube because ive already had a tubal pregnancy, that in her opinion if w repaired it she does not believe that I could have a successful pregnancy. So she recommended IVF. THANK GOD my husbands insurance covers unlimited IVF and 10, 000 in infertility. I feel so blessed by God that he has allowed us with this option.
So I was just wondering if someone can run me through on what I should expect from this, what will be happening during the time we are trying, what procedures will be done. What happens when you actually have IVF done, what is expected. Will you have to take time off work. How is the procedure preformed. How many women have had success? How many cycles did it take? Please any info you all can give me would be greatly appreciated.

The day you have the embryos implanted you SHOULD take the day off. RELAX, watch TV & take it easy. I think they said you can resume a normal routine the next day.But I would not work out, jog, walk far etc. for a week or two. That's my personal opinion. The point is that you want to optimize your success so try not to stay on your feet a lot. Go right home & put up your feet & pamper yourself! You do not go under anesthesia again for implantation. I never had the test on the uterus that you are describing.
