My husband and I have been
married 18 yrs and decided in 2005 we wanted to have
I underwent cancer therapy
at 29 and was never sure we could have children after
treatment. We seem to be content as things were, but
by 2005 we thought it wouldn't hurt to ttc (try to conceive).
I went to a reproductive Doctor to be evaluated and
was Dx (diagnosed with) Diabetes II/PCOS.
I was prescribed Metformin
and told to lose 10-20 lbs. We waited a few months and
less than a year later we conceived. I knew at that
moment it was meant to be. This precious gift we were
given and I have waited for is here. Two months later
I had a missed miscarriage. No Words....Devastation.
Since then, we have moved
twice-different states-Very hard. Worked with one reproductive
Doctor-waste of time. He did a blood test and said to
do charting. Months later-no pregnancy. Our insurance
changed and it became difficult. Now we are settled
and last fall started working with a new Doctor who
I just loved. She said I had endometriosis and a polyp.
Scheduled surgery. Had to be postponed because I kept
getting sick. Six months later I finally had my surgery
and May this year began my therapy which consisted of
Femara-Gonal F-Ovidrel. Two treatments-good egg production-no
pregnancy. My third round is injections only. If this
does not work Doctor wants to be aggressive and start
I will know in 3 days if
this cycle was a success, but I have had so many difficulties
hard to have hope. I will do accupuncture with the IUI
to increase chances.
Best wishes to all who share
