I'm scheduled for a laporoscopy tomorrow as my HSG showed partial blockage on my tubes from scar tissue. Been ttc for 18months,no other known issues.

AF is now 4 days late, have tested with ICs on 2 different days- both BFN.

Do they do a pg test before the lap? Im sure it'll be negative anyway but just in case. And if AF does show I'm assuming its still ok to go ahead even if I have a heavy period?

So annoyed that this month is the cycle that goes crazy 😔

Yes, you do a urine test on admission.
They can go ahead with laparoscopy but they won’t do hysteroscopy on your period.

I'm waiting for my hysteroscopy date @jcurve and my consultant said they would do it if I was on my period - I was concerned we'd have to delay if I was and he said it would be fine.

@LottieDot when I went for my hsg they didn't do a pregnancy test but asked a million times if I'd had unprotected sex as I'd been told not to try that cycle. I'd definitely tell them if you've been actively ttc as there is a chance 🤞

Thanks both. Still no AF and a BFN this morning so I'm assuming itll all still go ahead this afternoon.

@VenusStarr I was told the same for my HSG but the lap I was told could be done at any time and I wasnt told not to try. But now I'm doubting all that haha

How did you get on yesterday @LottieDot? Hope the recovery goes well x

Thanks for thinking of me @VenusStarr I test BFN so had the lap and dye done. It went well and surprisingly no scar tissue was found (so different to what HSG indicated!). Recovery is going ok, although I have been surprised at how unwell I've felt, I expected to be back to normal by now haha. And of course the procedure triggered AF to arrive so at least I'm out of limbo!
