A bit of history first, to conceive #1 we spent 10 months naturally with no success. My cycles were really long between 32 and 57 days! Saw a fertility specialist who diagnosed me with PCO (apparently hormone levels were boarderline) and possible endometrioses. I had a laparoscopy and a hysteroscopy. Everything was fine, except that my tubes needed to be flushed. I went straight onto Clomid to help with ovulation and that month BFP with #1.

Skip forward to 3 months after DS was born. I started getting fortnightly bleeding whilst on the mini pill. My OB (different to FS) recommended stopping the mini pill to see if my cycle went back to normal (for me). That occurred my cycles jumped to being longer and irregular. OB recommended taking clomid again straight away when we try for #2.

We’re now planning to start TTC in Jan. I have been off the mini pill for about 3 months using condoms for contraception. I’m comfortable taking clomid, my only through is do I need to go back to the FS to have another hysteroscopy? Do tubes fill up in two years? Does having a baby help to flush tubes out?

I had a lap/hyster back in 2001 and haven't had one since.
