Currently doing IVF
Am currently doing IVF, had the embryo transfer on Sunday and now awaiting for the test results if we are positive...
This is our first try at IVF, so we hold thumbs; this is not covered by medical insurance so it is a huge financial strain. We have done artificial insemination, clomid, injections, this is our last shot.
I am in bed, taking it easy.....and 5 days left for the preg test, I am going crazy with worry........will this be the time? Iíve been trying for 15 years.
DON'T LOSE HOPE!Hi I'm 33 and my husband is 38 we have been trying to conceive for almost 5 yrs now. After yrs we found out I had endometriosis, tubal blockage and damage and that we would never be able to conceive a baby on our own it was recommended that we do IVF, but that was a problem because we didn't have the funds or insurance at that time and adoption is so expensive so we waited. Everyday I was losing hope little by little.
I believe I have an angel above because 1 yr and 1/2 ago I found a new job and the insurance covered IVF 1 time fully. Since then we have moved and in Jan we started to prepare to try this but we have hit speed bumps along the way set aside my issues that we already knew about we found out that I was running out of eggs and of all things my husband has issues now too!
A few weeks ago I had surgery to prepare my tubes for IVF and next week will start my first cycle for IVF. So the only thing I can say is keep the faith, and have hope! Thatís what I do everyday, there is not a guarantee this is going to work but I'm sure hoping and praying it does.
Wat am I to do?Ok I am 16 about to be 17 soon...I have been having trouble lately with my life because of so much drama...I was talking to my mom last week and we were thinking about stuff...
There is this disease or whatsoever that can make you infertile which scares the crap out of me because I want to be able to have my own baby...and she said u can adopt...and I was like mom its not the same as having your own...so next time I go to the doctors I am going to get checked...because I wonít be able to live with the fact that I canít have kids...
You would be amazed because of how many times I have tried...and yet nothing...I want to be a mother so bad right now because I think it would change my whole life around...it would help me be a better person and stop feeling that I can not go anywhere...I just really want a kid to change my life around....
GOING INSANE-LOST ALL HOPEI am a 24years old and my fiancť and I have been together for two years and have been trying to conceive for the past year and nothing. I have been in a prior relationship for 5years where my ex and I had unprotected sex and I never got pregnant; not even a scare.
I had gone to the doctor to see what the reasons could be and got a lot of responses that other young women like myself get. You are too young, why in such a hurry, or had doctors just ponder around and do things that they had no clue about. I had gone to quite a few doctors and got different stories from most of them.
One told me I have Endometriosis, another told me I have polycystic ovaries, another told me that I don't ovulate regularly. I have had quite a few tests done and even tried few doses of Clomid and nothing. I am also falling into a deep depression because I also don't feel much support from my fiancť. He had mentioned to me that either way he has two kids so if this doesn't happen its not going to make a difference to him. But I am so heartbroken that he would even think like that.
I want to be a mother, I want to feel a baby grow inside of me and be a part of me. I am just loosing all faith and hope that this will ever happen for me and can't stand the sight of a pregnant woman because it makes me more depressed to know that I cannot do it.
still tryingWe've been trying to get pregnant for the past 2 yrs. Have tried clomid, tamoxifen, IUI all 3 cycles and 1 cycle of fertility shots, and one IVF cycle. All of which failed.
My hormone levels are fine. My husbandís semen analysis is fine. HSG is normal, and nothing was found in laparoscopy. I'm so depressed. Everything is normal we both are normal but yet we have been trying for so long and still not getting pregnant.
BTW I have PCOS and retroverted uterus but my doc said that it is not the cause.
