Having one tube is better than none!  Does your doc have any idea which tube you ovulate from?  There is a lady on this board who would only have 2-3 chances a year due to tubal & perhaps ovary issues (I can't remember for sure on the ovary part, but I'm pretty sure one tube is blocked) and she just had a baby girl.

I was just at the RE today & he was commenting on skipping the IUI (which is where they insert the sperm into your uterus) and going to IVF because the chance is so much greater with IVF.  Its something like 7% with IUI (I think) and 25% with IVF (this is partly based on my age since I'm 42, I think he was talking about women over 37).

I'm a little surprised your doc would do IUI since you have a tubal issue.  With tubal issues, unless he's monitoring which ovary you are ovulating from, you potentially are ovulating from an ovary on the side you have a blocked tube & then it doesn't matter how close they get the sperm, it can't meet up with the egg.  IVF is expensive, but it would seem like that would be your best shot.

I had a tubal reversal and there is the chance of having my tubes become blocked from scar tissue.. I'm only onto my 3rd cycle though.
