Dear Dr Dmitrović,
In April 2016 I had tubal pregnancy at week 6, and have undergone laparoscopy with the pregnancy and the affected tube removed. During the same procedure I had the adhesions in the right tube removed. A swab has been done in July and it has shown ureaplasma infection that both husband and I have treated. After antibiotics treatment we have conducted the second swab and the results were negative. Pap smear was also good. In November I had the HyFoSy ultrasound done which has shown no blockage of the right tube. Also, I have had the DC 4 hormone testing done (TSH=4,520 mIU/L, LH=4,5 IU/L, FSH=9,1 IU/L, Estradiol=109 pmol/L, Prolactin=411 mIU/L, AMH=9,0 pmol/L). Since trying to conceive after that was unsuccessful, I suspect I am not ovulating. Is there a way to check my suspicions? I am about to turn 30 and my husband and I would really like to have a baby. I don’t know who else to turn to anymore and what to do about my condition. Can you please advise on the next steps? Best regards

Although you have not given me all the details relevant for a proper opinion, I believe you ovulate since you have been pregnant before. You have a relatively low AMH and a relatively high FSH for a woman of your age. In addition, your TSH is too high for pregnancy, and you lack a tube. These are the reasons why you shouldn’t wait any more, and should visit an infertility specialist soon. You are young and I do not see a need for substantial medical intervention, but you do need a doctor who knows what he/she is doing.
