Thanks for the query.

The treatment of blocked tubes depends on the extent and position of the block, condition of the tubes, cause of the block etc.
As your wife already undergone surgery for unblocking the tubes with no improvement in fertility the doctors might have suggested IVF.
According to your wife's age the success rates of IVF are:
Pregnancy rate: 38.9
Live birth rate: 31.7.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
