Rhonda's Story
Posted July 28, 2009

My husband and I have been married 18 yrs and decided in 2005 we wanted to have a baby.

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 IUI.

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 this dream.
