Our expert says:
The decision to proceed with in-vitro fertilization will depend on a number of factors in particular, patency of the fallopian tubes and the condition of the uterus as well hormonal status. If the laparoscopy did not detect any pathology then it might be possible to achieve conception with relatively inexpensive means of treatment such as intrauterine insemination coupled with simple ovulation induction and careful monitoring. However despite the fact that your boyfriend has 2 children I would still recommend a baseline sperm analysis be done, as often, in my experience, sperm parameters fluctuate significantly and may be a lot worse than they were previously. If however the laparoscopy detects blocked tubes the certainly in-vitro fertilization would be a reasonable option.
