    Infertile and Depressed

    2
    I was supposed to be having a simple surgery at the age of 14 and woke from the surgery to find out I had a partial hysterectomy; while having my surgery they determined my uterus was cracked in half and my OBGYN had discussed it with my mom and thought it would be best to remove it while I was already in surgery. To find out at the ripe age of 14 that I would never get to carry my own child I...

    IVF with just two embryos

    3
    I went through IVF and had my ER a week ago today. 44 eggs, 34 mature, 20 fertilized, 12 day 3.............then just 2 were left on day 5 for freezing. I'm fairly devastated because financially and emotionally another round of IVF just wasnt something I considered. I'm waiting for PGD results to see if they're viable and it's going to be the longest two weeks.If anyone has a success story with...

    PCOS

    2
    I recently found out my second IUI was not successful. I was diagnosed with PCOS in the summer and did 3 rounds of Femara (one with IUI), and one round of clomid/ ovidrel/ IUI. I am scheduled to have a laparoscopic “clean out” that my Dr. says is routine for patients at this point. Anyone else have a similar experience? My surgery is in 2 months and they don’t seem to think there is any...

    Alone

    Hi all. I am a 24 year old woman who married a wonderful, 25 year old man 2 years ago. We always knew we wanted a family and we wanted to start immediately so we could enjoy being young, active parents. We never thought in a million years that when we were ready, it wasn’t going to be that easy. Recently, it is has gotten more and more difficult for me to manage my feelings toward my...

    Hello all,I am posting as an update. After a retreival this week on Tuesday my first transfer is in the morning. We have successfully frozen 3 embryos from a few months ago and today will be a fresh transfer. I am anxious hoping this embryo sticks and my baby journey starts moving in the right direction. My coordinator said if for whatever reason there is no fresh embryos to transfer i can thaw...

    Male factor infertility

    I am struggling here. Trying to keep-faith and be strong but month after month it is so hard. Urologist believes that the low sperm count is related to genetics but not enough studies are around to prove this to be the case. We have been pregnant a total of 3 times. 2 naturally (our first was a miscarried @ 10 weeks after hearing the heart beat on two occasions, the other was a...

    Brown Spotting during the end of AF

    7
    Hi! My husband and I just did 2 rounds of IUI (Clomid and Trigger) and sadly the 2nd time didn't take. I'm honestly emotionally drained so we decide to put the 3rd attempt on hold till after the holidays. I'm just finishing my last days with AF and I've taken notice that I have brown spotting. Has anyone who has stopped IUI had the same experience? I've never had brown spotting toward the end...

    Second IUI Unsuccessful

    3
    This morning was the end of my TTW after having an IUI.  The pregnancy test was negative which was dissappointing.  I'm debating on whether to try for another IUI or take a break.  If the third IUI isn't successful, then IVF would be our next step.  I'm not sure if I want to pursue IVF though.  Has anyone tried embryo adoption?  I've thought about going for embryo adoption instead of IVF. ...

    Starting IVF

    Hi all. I’m starting IVF tomorrow. I’m new to this. I lost half of my ovaries to bilateral teratomas in August. I’m younger than I thought I’d be thinking about kids. But I start IVF next week and I’m nervous. Anyone know what I should expect hormonally speaking?

    Need some support

    I am at a loss of words really. My husband and I have been through IVF 6 times, 1 miscarriage and 1 life threatening ectopic pregnancy. I am 28 and my husband is 32. We have been through so much that at this point it is getting tough to communicate as effectively as we once did when we felt more hope in the process of Ivf. We went through our 6th failed attempt 2 months ago and it is hard to...
