    Hello madam...What's happening may not have an absolute answer.may i ask if any of you and your husbands previous tests have yielded a definite diagnosis as to the cause of the Infertility...Sometimes you may need to go as far as IVF if all natural means fails.UTIs don't cause infertility but PID does.Has the PID caused tubal blockage? if so did you have an hsg recently that confirmed they were patent??

    Hi...unfortunately hydrotubation may not make a difference..when the tubes are flushed,it doesn't fix the full function of the tubes and many times fixes nothing except where the adhesions are minimal.better procedures are operations to actually fix the blockage called tuboplasty.again you have to have a specialist gynecologist to attempt this. ivf is another option,expensive financially and emotionally draining but it will work about 40% of the time. I'm afraid there is no reliable evidence that hydrotubation actually works but it seems that after it's done some women take in. I would encourage you to seek IVF services or at least a second gynecologist opinion

    OK tanx but if I may ask what is IVF? and secondly I used to have peperish pain in my vaginal for like a week before i stat my period pls what can I do.

    IVF is in vitro fertilization...your eggs are taken from your ovaries and your husband produces seamen too.the two are basically mixed outside the body in a lab.when fertilization occurs,one or more fertilized eggs are returned into the woman's body for them to begin growing.Some people are lucky and it gels in the first attempt but some people have to do it 2 or more times.places like nordica and the bridge clinic offer these services. the peppery pains you feel may be due to your normal hormones at that period in your cycle.are you unusual having vaginal discharge ,any Candida infection?

    WOMEN are prone to recurrent uti... Its impornat to find out why you are having recurrent UTIs ,please what UTI symptoms are you having?make sure you clean front to back, frequent sex can predispose to UTIs especially if the act causes movement of organisms from the anal area to the front where the urethra is. Drink lots of water daily 2-3,wear cotton underwear,urinate after intercourse,drink cranberry juice from time to time...have a urine mcs done and treat any current infection you have. Again fir thus discharge, it needs to be properly cultured and the organism grown treated.
