Adhesions can impeded becoming pregnant due to constriction of the organs
and tubes, but if you would consider IVF why not get to a specialist who not
only deals with adhesions but fertility as well. Simply because you have
adhesions on your reproductive organs does not mean your sterile, it means
you could have a blockage from the adhesions.
Dr Harry Reich is the only surgeon in the world who can deal with your
adhesion disease AND assist you in the area of fertility, and to have
adhesions as the reason for not becoming pregnant is all the more reason to
go to him alone!! Your young, you want children, and it is possible IF your
only obstacle is the adhesions, I say, " only " because that just might be a
very workable situation as I have heard of the miracles that Dr. Riech has
worked in as far as a pregnancy accurruing folowing an adhesiolysis under
Will the adhesions return, they MIGHT, but your best chance for a pregnancy
AND with having an adhesiolysis with NON reforming adhesions lie in the
hands of Dr. Harry Reich. Without him, you have little to no chance, in my
opinion, for both of the aforementioned things to happen to you.
Your future at becoming a parent with suffering Adhesion Related Disease
lies in Dr. Reich's hands.
Best of luck to you, Zoe.
