I would like to know, how this tubal block was diagnosed? Also, what you mean by dhl?
If it was diagnosed on HSG, then I would suggest you to go for laparoscopy to confirm the status of the tubes.
If the block is diagnosed by Laparoscopy and there is no improvement after taking TB medications, then the only hope remains is on IVF!
your doctor has correctly said, it is like a chance, no sureity, as the sucess rate for conception after IVF can never be like 100%.
Also, it depends on many factors including your age, functioning of ovaries, that is ovarian reserve, how you respond to the medications,husband's age, sperm count and quality, etc...
So nobody can give you sureity, but in your case, it is the only hope for conception...
Hope this information is helpful to you to decide whether to go for IVF or not...
The other option remains is adoption.
