    Hi there! My husband and I have been ttc for the last two years. Two months ago we started the journey of testing my hormones, his semen, had my hsg last week which was so awful and painful. My doctor has had me on birth control pills since the beginning of July. I've been cramping and spotting for two weeks and my emotions are all over the place. Two days ago we had our doctor appointment to go...

    Failed IVF

    I'm 32 years old and I have had reproductive issues since I was about 18-19 years old. Endometriosis, countless ovarian cysts, and eventually left ovarian rupture...so now I only have part of my right ovary. Through all of this, I have had multiple surgeries, creating scar tissue, which led to my ONLY Fallopian tube becoming completely occluded. Long story short, my OBGYN told me that my only...

    Petrified of egg collection

    Hi,I am so blessed to be at the stage where early next week, I will be having my 24 folicals collected in the small chance one will become my absolute everything. The closer the collection comes the more and more nervous I am getting. I am petrified of the whole process and the pain. I'm scared of the cervical injection and being sedated and basically everything. It sounds stupid but I am not...

    Injections tomorrow

    Its 10.30pm and after 5 days of awaiting an untimely period via medication, I started my day one today. This means that I start my day two tomorrow and my very first gonal F injection. I am unbelievably nervous but oh my gosh I am so excited! It doesn't feel real, like at all. I just can't stop thinking about the next couple weeks ahead. ❤️

    Really struggling to stay optimistic

    Hello all,I imagine my story isn't much different from others so I am grateful to be amongst others who understand.  I honestly never realized how much this would affect me and how quickly, but it's getting harder as time passes and, while I used to be able to remain cautiously optimistic, I'm finding it much more difficult and am becoming a bitter person I don't like.Briefly, I am 40 and, after...

    So we have been trying for 2 and half years, had two miscarriages and have got to a point where it got to expensive to keep trying. My sister-in-law is due any day now and I was volunteered to help plan her babyshower which was really tough. Acting like everything is ok is by far the hardest thing. No one seems to understand and if I tell them I don't want to be involved it's because of jealous...

    Ivf- first time

    Hi. I'm at Day 5 of my first IVF cycle, and for the most part I am ok. Some of the injections have been a little rough but I've made it through. Today I have started feeling some abdominal discomfort and sadness. Now sure why I'm sad. I just wanted to communicate with someone that knows what I'm going through.

    I just want it to end. Infertility is killing me. Infertility is making me suicidal. It's been 15 years since my husband and I have started trying to conceive. 15!!!! Still no baby. We've been through several rounds of IUI and IVF. Several miscarriages. I can't do this anymore. There's no point in living. Why am I even on this earth? I'm a very strong person but I can't do this anymore. The pain...

    I have been struggling with infertility for about 2.5 years and recently started seeing a therapist because it has left me feeling quite depressed. She suggested I join a support group with others in a similar position because I'm feeling very alone. Sister in laws, best friend, and multiple co-workers have had babies in the past year or are having babies any day and it is a constant reminder...

    Hey guys.  I'm sure like all of you I'm dealing with my own hand of infertility.  My husband and I have been trying for 6 years to have a baby, and recently got pregnant.  We went to the doctor twice (though she would never MEET us she just sent nurses to deal with me) At 7 weeks I felt as if something was wrong, but my tech took an ultrasound and said it was fine.  At 11 weeks, so between...

    ...and I feel ridiculous!  I got a negative test the other day which marked my 5th unsuccessful IUI and while absolutely devastated I thought I held my composure quite well.  Only teared up a bit when telling my husband.  Well, the next day while being rung up at the grocery store the cashier asked if I was ready for school to start back up.. I was caught off guard and said something like I...

    My husband and I had an ectopic pregnancy about 3.5 years ago. I lost my one tube and we have not been able to conceive since. We started treatment a few months ago and I had a bad reaction last week that left me in the hospital yet again. The physical pain passes, but the emotional pain is crushing me. I feel like I can't breathe without crying. I am stuck in the "why us" cycle and am having...

    Hi this is the first time I have reached out about infertility. My husband and I have been together for 7 1/2 years and have been having unprotected sex for about 6 of them. We always knew something was wrong but we just recently got married and decided to face it head on. So far we have found out that my husband has a low sperm count and motility, he has antibodies that are attacking his sperm...
