Dear Weja

It appears that although you don’t prefer IVF this may be your only option as when the doctor had assess your wife’s fallopian tubes he found it completely blocked and it appears that it is inoperable to allow it to be open again. If this is the case then there is no chance of the fallopian tubes to be repaired then your only option is going to be in-vitro fertilization as this is the only procedure allowing you to achieve a pregnancy by bypassing the blocked fallopian tubes.
