Doctor :   Ok
User :   i just want to know the reason behind this is whether is my depression drugs ?
Doctor :   No, your medical condition and your medication are not responsible for your wife's condition.
User :   ok
User :   now we want baby coz she is also 35 yrs
User :   could u suggest me any better way
User :   she is taking prescription of an gyno. from alsomt 6 month after her operation but there is no output come till now
Doctor :   If the cause for inability to conceive is fallopian tube obstruction alone, then surgical exploration and if possible reconstruction can be done.
User :   i didn't get it as im not much aware abt medical terms
Doctor :   She will however need to continue with her thyroid supplements and maintaining the thyroid levels under normal levels would be important.
Doctor :   Let me put across to you in simple terms.
Doctor :   Hypothyroidism can prevent pregancy, but it is not an absolute cause,
Doctor :   however fallopian tube obstruction can cause infertility.
Doctor :   If these two are the only conditions preventing from pregnancy, then you need not be worried.
Doctor :   Pregnancy can still be possible.
User :   how ?
Doctor :   Fallopian tube obstruction can be corrected by surgical treatment,
Doctor :   It is possible to reconstruct the fallopian tubes (depending on how much of the tube is obstructed)
User :   ok, but doctor told us it's can not be open as u hav to go with test tube
Doctor :   If this isn't feasible, then artificial insemination can be attempted.
Doctor :   Artifical insemination is similar to test tube babies.
Doctor :   There are successful cases of artifical insemination, hence this is very much possible and feasible.
Doctor :   However, its important that she continues her hypothyroid drugs and keep the thyorid problems under control, for successful pregnancy.
