My dh and I had been TTC for almost 4 years. Finally got BFP in June by our 1st try at IVF (which isn't cheap or easy)
The condition we were diagnosed with was I have a blocked fallopian tube, and he has low sperm morphology, both conditions the Re said shouldn't just cause infertility but obviously it does :o).
I was on clomid for 5 months, did IUI's for 3 (or 4) with clomid, then took a year off of trying to give us a break from all the heartbreak... After our year off we came back and were ready to take out a loan for IVF...
We were on the antagonist cycle of IVF and had 2 eggs transferred, 1 took so now I am about 14 weeks pregnant :o)
We are very excited since the journey wasn't as easy for us as it is for most other people... It was soooo hard to not give up hope but we didn't and finally we have a baby on the way :o)
We are trying ttc again but the birth of my 2nd son in Oct 2008 was a great success story! We ttc'd for 14 months, 8 months on our own and then went to OB, took Femara for 3 months no luck, went to RE. The RE Doubled my Femara dosage, HSG and Ovidrel shot and we were pregnant within 3 months.We have unexplained fertility so we have no idea what the problem is for us. I am having another HSG performed tomorrow in hopes to get lucky with the same method again :-)
We are trying for almost 2 and 1/2 year and married for 7 yrs.
We are unexplained and tried clomid/IUI for 3 months then 1st IVF failed which put us in lot of pressure and worries that something must be wrong with us. But drs are keep telling us they r also surprised and just hang in there.
Finally got pregnant with natural FET this month. We r happy & praying for healthy baby.
Really It was so hard to not give up hope but after failed IVF I was out of mind and pressure from family just broke us badly. But because mercy of GOD we have a baby on the way.
Good attitude is the key I believe but I know after not getting result in our favor it is difficult task. DH and I are keep praying for all who is in the journey and hoping success soon.
DH and I were ttc for about 15 months. Went to the Re after a little less than a year, and found out that DH has low morphology (which my Re said CAN cause infertility...all depends on who you talk to I guess since I've read both) and I have low hormone levels. In August we started our first IUI cycle with Clomid and Ovidrel, and me on Estradiol and Prometrium. 8 weeks pregnent on Thursday!
Okay..I would be more than happy! My beta came back good today..so I'm on cloud nine! God has so richly blessed us this week. We have been ttc for 19 months. The first 6 months we weren't obsessive about it..and just said it would happen eventually. That leads me to the last 13- At first we did clomid 50mg day 3-7 because my progesterone came back a little low. I took clomid for 5 months I think. The first three months- that alone. We had to take two months off because my husband was gone for training. That brings us to the last 6 months. DH's sperm count came back with 0 sperm once, and 3.5 mil once, and 13 mil once. All with low mob. My obgyn said we may need a donor and sent him for multiple test with a urologists...(it was horrible) He also send him to male fertility urologist who prescribed DH with Clomid 25 mg/day. We had two failed iui's at Ob office and then finally went to fertility clinic where re said IVF with ICSI was probably best bet with DH's sperm count. First two iui's that failed I used clomid, trigger, and estradoil and of course pre nat.. vitamin. Back to re- He said he would suggest trying one more iui. We did and we couldn't even use meds because I had a 30mm cyst. DH's count was 4.4 mil post wash- And yesterday I read those beautiful words PREGNANT! I hope everything continues to look good. I think 4 things really helped us this time- 1. God, 2. lack of stress on DH 3.he taking clomid, and re doing iui (because they do so with u/s so you can be exactly sure the sperm went into the uterus). I don't think obgyn was as precise? Hope this helps and I wish Baby dust to all! Please keep me in your prayers that my next beta with look good too!
we have been TTC for 5 years, had a few pregnancy losses last pregnancy was ectopic since then i lost my right tube that was 2 years ago.... since my ectopic we did 4 ovulation inductions, 2 IUI's, 1 IVF, 1 FET all resulted in BFN also tried clomid, didn't work and was told that we are unexplained!!!!!
After going through "HELL" we decided to take a few months off coz we where drained financially, physically and emotionally, so we took a break and during that break we got a BFP natrually...DH and I were shocked it was somthing we were not expecting.
so for all still TTC, it will happen nothing is impossible, it will happen when the time is rite... NEVER GIVE UP!!!
We are unexplained, did all the test all came back normal. Been together 8 years never use protection but nothing started getting serious last year...did clomid with iui, also did gonal F injections with iui no success. First IVF/ICSI (Hubby sperm was okay but my RE didnt want to take any chances and decided to do ICSI) got a BFP we were elated. Today i am 19weeks 3 days and enjoying every moment of this pregnancy.
Gook luck to all trying and never give up I thought we will never be able to have kids but thanks to my RE who never gave up on us too.
thxx a lot to all your detailed responses..its a great motivation for TTCing people :)...thx a ton again adn hope for more here ...
We tried for about 4 and a half years. Male infertility, low sperm count and low motility.
Had 2 IUI's failed,
2 failed IVF.
Third IVF last year on July, had 3 frozen embryo transfer and the last one one with only 3 fertilized embryos only one took.
Now I have a wonderful 2 months old baby boy.
So girsl don't give up, I know about the aches , pains and deceptions but please, please don't give up, it will happen.
