Even though infertility affects at least 10% of the population, most couples feel as though they are the only ones struggling through it. Help give some reassurance to those encountering fertility problems by talking about your experience. Did you turn to in vitro fertilization or some other form of infertility treatment? Were alternative or natural fertility treatments useful for you? We want to hear your encouraging anecdotes about infertility and fertility treatments.
Please bless me LORD
My husband had a vasectomy reversal about 8 years ago. we have been trying ever since. The doctor said that he had low sperm count. So we have done 3 IUI with a donor unsuccessfully.
I will be 40 this year. My husband said that that I could try once more, but that was it. I've been praying that the LORD wont let me do it unless it is successfull, because I can't take this emotional roller coaster any longer, but I also can't take not being a mom.
I feel this is my turn, I will pray for all of you. The LORD is good, & he has his reasons for making us wait! I pray that we all will be like Hannah in the bible.
Yes It is hard to be around pregnant women, I find myself wishing I had morning sickness & bad back pain, anything for a baby!
Well where do I begin? I think this started about when i was 20 and had been in a relationship for about 2 years. Trying to have a child but I couldnt, after the relationship ended I saw it as a blessing that I wasnt pregnant! As soon as my ex and I broke up, his new girlfriend was pregnant within a matter of months!
Fast forward a few years. I met a new guy. When we first got together, he wanted no kids so I decided to take the depo shot (one of the worse decisions I ever made in my life). It has been 5 years and my body is still not back to normal. Well we are now married going on 4 years and still no baby, I have gone to doctors and everyone says I am fine.
I know my husband has gotten someone pregnant before (she had an abortion) ( incident was before we met) so I dont know if I should go see a specialist, become a vegetarian to "cleanse" my body of the depo and the provera that i was given and that I cant shake that I feel has made me sterile!
I don't know if I should i try certain herbs.So far I have tried Vitex and am now trying Geritol ( someone at church told me to try it). Am I alone in this battle? I wonder if my story sound like anyone elses.
Life is not so easyHello Ladies,
I am glad I have found a forum where people seem to experience the same situation I have been for 1.5 years. I was diagnosed last year with PCOS and a bit of endometriosis. I am 31 and my husband is 38.
I had an operation back in August. Then we tried again, but nothing. I have just been prescribed Metmorfin and clomid which I have been taking for 2 months sith no success so far ... Every month is a roller coaster and such a disappointment and I feel crushed and useless. I never thought I would be in this situation, having alwways been super healthy, slim. I am in nutrition so am eating really well, don't drink, don't smoke and do everything right.
I have tackled my stress and I feel there is nothing left to try other than IVF and acupuncture maybe. I just have lost hope really. It seems to be so easy for everyone around me and nobody really understands unless they go through this painful process. I feel frustration towards people who have babies. I just cannot help it. All they say is 'relax, take it easy and it will happen' as if I was a dog. They can be ever so patronising and I just wish they won't have to go through that themselves. Little they know really.
It is hard to find a support group so am glad I have found this site.
Good luck to everyone and hope 2008 will be a good one!
Dear God, please give me the family I so desperatlMy sig. other and I have been trying to have a baby for 18 months with no luck. I have endometriosis, cysts on my ovaries and cervix,,,,the list goes on and on. Finally, about 3 months ago we decided we would seek help from a fertility clinic. The best one we found is an hour & 1/2 drive north of where we live.
All I have ever wanted my entire life was to be a mama. I wanted 3 kids.....now I will be lucky to have one. I'll be 36 in a few weeks. I am running out of time. So this is where we're at....after several trips north we have decided to try IUI (intrauterine insemination)....I have to wait to get my period (next week) and go in for an ultrasound or sonogram (cant remember which)....then as long as I have no cysts on my uterus/cervix I will start taking Femara on cd3-7....then back for another ultrasound/sonogram when I get an LH surge...then when they find that I have 3 or 4 follicles 19mm in diameter they will do the IUI.
I am excited and scared,,,terrified and nervous...happy and sad. I have so many emotions I cant even explain. This is my only chance. If it doesnt happen soon it wont happen. My sig. other has a 15 yr old son and after this he doesn't want anymore. He's 41...he doesnt want to be raising kids til he's 90....haha. If it doesnt happen soon we will be out of options, out of money and out of time.
GOD, please give me the family I so desperately want. I will be a good mama. I promise.
A childless motherMy s/o and I are about to start treatments for our first IUI. We have been trying to conceive for months with no luck. I go for my first sonogram as soon as my oeriod comes (next week)...then we will see where we go from there.
I dont want to be a childless mother for the rest of my life. This is my only chance....we cant afford IVF.
Please God, help us. Everyone pray for us....thanks.
