Hi Cynthia! You are in my prayers. Always remember that God has the final say. Keep the faith and don't give up.
Gabriela, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome so I truly understand how hard it is. Know that you are not alone and that we all have to pray one for the other.
Going for our first iui/clomidWell my DH and I have been ttc for over 3yrs now, and it’s getting harder and harder for me to deal with. Last month was supposed to be our first iui/clomid, after several u/s no mature follicles, that cycle was cancel. My RE increased my dosage to 150, the last one at 100 did not do the trick. Anyways tomorrow I will have my first u/s to find out if the increase dose worked. If it doesn't my RE has informed us that I may have to go get the injectable, I am freaking out b/c I hate needles. I am praying that the increase dose worked! Wish me luck
PainI was 21 when Doctors told me I had endometriosis and said I was not going to be able to have kids. 10 years later I got pregnant. I was 4 weeks when I lost my baby it was painful. But after I lost my baby I have more pain. I’ve been in the hospital 2 times and 1 time at the emergency room my problem is that I have two uteruses and 2 cervix. I don’t know if I will have kids but I know that having endometriosis has caused me a lot of pain.
Trying to conceive for 4 yearsI have been trying to conceive for 4 years. After 3 miscarriages and 1 year on Clomid without ovulating my dr. sent me to fertility specialist. He put me on Metformin and Clomid. I started ovulating but after 4 months still was not pregnant. I had intrauterine insemination and still not pregnant. I am so frustrated! I feel lost. The plans I had are not coming together.
At a CrossroadOkay, I have been on this site all morning reading everyone’s testimony and trials. I now know that I am not alone in what I am going through. I got married when I was 23 to a long time friend of mine and we are so happy! I was on the pill for about 6 months and then decided to stop taking the pill. Our prayer was “If it is our time, God will allow it to happen”.
I would hear so many women say that once they got of the pill, they were pregnant within months. That was not the case for me. I am 27 now and still no children. I begin to wonder what is wrong with me. What did I do not to deserve a child of my own? I would get upset to hear of friends and family members who had gotten abortions. They took for granted the gift God was trying to bless them with. Why was it that people who didn’t want to have children were getting pregnant and people like me who would give anything to be a mother would have to suffer?
I went to me doctor and explained to him that I was off the pill for years and had not gotten pregnant. My period would come maybe once or twice a year and he immediately referred me to a fertility specialist. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. He suggested that I do IV (which is way too much money and no guarantee) or get back on the pill to start having my periods to shed my lining. I got on the pill for a month or so and stopped. I looked online and I have been reading about Ovulex. I purchased it but I am afraid to try it. My husband constantly tells me, “God doesn’t need our help. If it is meant for us to have children, it will happen in time.”
I am so confused on what I should do. I know that things are not right with my body so my thought is to treat the problem and if God blesses me to get pregnant then so be it. Please pray for me, I am at a crossroad right now.
