Before answering the query i need some clarification.
Could you please let me know the following:
1. What were the findings on laproscopy?
2. What are the findings on hysteroscopy? Number and size of fibroid?
3. Are your menstrual cycles normal.? If so for how long?

Waiting for your reply.

Thanks for your reply.

Hysteroscopic removal of fibroid is always indicated before starting infertility treatment.

You doctor is taking you in a right direction. Follow your doctor's advice on hysteroscopy.

Chances of pregnancy with IUI after removal of fibroid is as high as 18-20%.

Since your menstrual cycles are regular and you being just 32 years , chances of pregnancy are high.
So relax .

Here are few recommendations to still improve your chances of pregnancy:
1. If you are overweight, reduce your weight at-least by 5%. Ideal BMI is 18-24.
2.Keep yourself active, engage in moderate exercise.
3 Have a healthy balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables.
4 Start taking folic acid tablets. You need Tablet folic acid 5 mg 1 tablet daily,
5 have a positive attitude and stress free lifestyle.

Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck and take care.

Treatment of submucous fibroid definitely increases your chances of conception.
Second time hysteroscopic surgery will not do any harm since it is a minimal invasive procedure.
Its better if you get your submucous fibroid removed.

Continue folic acid 1mg /day and other tablets.

Wish you good luck,
