Interested in YOUR Story!

Ok Ladies.... I was just sitting here thinking.... Please post how many cycles of IUI, IVF, FET you did before receiving your BFP.  Also, if your turned to donor eggs/embryos how many cycles.... I think it would help others and me that are still struggling to keep the Faith!

Can't wait to see your stories!!!!

3 failed IVFs with my own eggs.
BFP with DE fresh cycle. Lost my twins at 21 weeks due to the high risk associated with multiple gestation. No other reason (so for those who hope for twins, don't forget it comes with a big risk).
Chemical pregnancy with DE FET.
BFP with second and very last (no more embryos) DE FET. I now have the most beautiful daughter in the world.

It is possible, please keep the faith. Having gone through a failed DE FET, I know it's very difficult to think the next time will work. But I am living proof that it happens! All it takes is one good embryo. Yours is out there and just waiting to get inside your uterus!!

Hugs to you.

I am so glad to see that you are BACK!  

Here is my story:
My 1st IVF was done in 2007 it worked for me I got my BFP and I was not expecting it!  I thought it would take more than one try.  Because a doctor told DH and I that we would NEVER get pg.  DH had VERY low sperm count. Since it was so easy the 1st time that is the reason it took me two years to try again BIG mistake.  I have had a total of  3 failed IVF's.  I said this last one was my last worked or not.  But when I see my little girl so alone and needing someone to play with it breaks my heart and I ask God why can't I give her a brother or sister.  She is my reason for trying again.  If it was not for her I would give up and say I am DONE.  The plan was to start right up again.  But I decided to talk to my Natural doctor and he has asked me to give him 3 months to work with both DH and I before our next try.  So right now that is the plan we are both on natural medicine to help with this quality and quantity and to get my healthier we will also both do acupuncture.

Good luck

Three years ago I did clomid + IUI + trigger and on the second try we got pregnant. My son is now 2.5 and a wonderful joy. I was told by my OB that it was going to be impossible due to adhesions. Proved her wrong.

I just got my lab results for our second baby try. Not good. AMH is very, very low--0.09. I'm trying to be positive but the little that I'm reading, looks like we would have to do IVF and/or donor eggs. Not sure what to think about this. Not happy but know that I am very blessed with my son. I'm glad it worked at least for the first time.

We are in the TWW of our second IUI. Both times clomid then trigger then IUI. First one didn't work and we should know by the end of the week if it worked this time. DH has a motility issue but postwash numbers were high so I'm hopeful. If it doesn't work then I think we may go a little more extreme. We don't exactly know what that means though lol. Maybe doing two iuis per cycle or talk about IVF. IVF just seems so costly!
Here's hoping we all get BFP this month!!!

Just keep hope!  I have an unexplained cause of infertility and suffered 3 miscarriages in the past 2 years. I started with fertility treatments in January 2011.  I haven't had IVF but I have gone thru 4 rounds of IUI. 3 with clomid and 1 with injections.

I just found out today I'm  pg :)

I can happen....My fingers  are crosses and your in my prayers.....

Thank You for sharing your stories !
I look foward to seeing more!

You are all right! We have to keep trying, and we can't give up.  Sometimes, we just start feeling so sorry for ourselves, we forget what that others have gone through the same, and sometimes, evern more.

Btw"  My story is  Never had a fresh cycle.  Did donor the first round, Dr didn't retrieve them in time, making them pretty much useless.  Did get pregnant on first FET (didn't due fresh cycle due to thin lining) but m/c'd.  Did 3 other cycles...BFN's.  (not suprised, eggs were way less then stellar, but had them, so used them).

Moved on to donor embryos...10 frozen embies....  Fist cycle, transferred 2 embies, BFN.  Doing second cycle Oct 2011...


I hope more share there stories!!!

Did one round of IVF w/ ICSI in May 2010 (hubby & I originally thought our first steps would be IUI, but after lots of sperm analysis & testing on me, it was determined he had not so great sperm on everything, so ivf w/ icsi was our only shot). Transferred two eggs & received a bfp on June 8, 2010. Delivered b/g twins on December 24, 2010. Still have 21 frozen & possibly in the future (5 years or so), we may go and try again.

Good luck to each and every one of you in your journey. I hope each of you achieves that ultimate goal in the end! :)

It took 3 IUI's for me to get my BFP. I have PCOS, so my only problem before fertility treatment was not getting mature eggs and not ovulating on my own. Because of the injectibles, I had great eggs, perfect lining, ovulated, and DH had amazing sperm counts, and we are both young and healthy. For whatever reason, though, I got BFN's the first two tries, but the 3rd time was the charm and we're having twins! So don't give up! Even if everything is going for you, it still doesn't always work, but if you keep trying, you WILL get your BFP!!
1659564 tn?1325821143
4 IUI's all BFN

1 fresh IVF BFN

1 frozen with the last 2 embryos BFP!!!  We had no more money to try again. Just had the first u/s today and got to hear the heartbeat.  I am 6 weeks 3 days pregnant.

Praying for many, many more BFP's for everyone on the forum!
