Thanks for query
Befor going for ET ,please insure your thyroid profile is normal by taking appropriate treatment. Success rate of ET varies from centre to centre from20-40%.For chronic tube bloched at the age of 41 ,ET is the best alternative.So go head.
Hope I have answered your question well to your satisfaction. Wish you speedy complete recovery at the earliest.

General & Family Physician Dr. P. Mahesh's  Response
Hi Rahini,
Welcme to HCM.
Invitro fertilisation and Embryo Transfer (IVF-ET) is the treatment of choice in case of bilateral tubal block.
The success rate in the best centres is approximately 50 %. Thyroid complications may further reduce the success rate.
Since this is the best option available if your husband's sperm count is within normal limits, there is no point in worrying about the success rate. If there are more than one choice to select from, then considering the success rate of each of the procedure is certainly recommended.
Wish you all the Best.
