Don't Count Your Eggs

Wow Mag. Thanks for sharing. The body does change and I guess so does luck or timing or whatever. It helps to hear stories like this and though it's hard to believe something like that would ever happen to me, most people I talk to feel exactly the same way, and then it happens! Have to keep believing.


I came across your site today, and I just wanted to share my experience and give some hope. Since 2008, I had several rounds of IUIs on clomid which didn't work and then I moved on to IVF. I had stage 4 endometriosis and so I thought the best route for me was IVF. I had 3 rounds of fresh IVF cycles and all failed. I was a poor responder to medications. I was devastated and my doctor gave up and said that I was really a challenging case and there was little that he could do at that point. I was emotionally and financially drained. I asked him to do a lap for me because each month, I had painful periods as a result of endo. After the lap, I decided to move on with my life, and focus on other things. But lo and behold, I managed to conceive naturally twice. My son will be 4 and my daughter is 2. So, please stay strong, and remember that sometimes even if IVF fails, miracles do happen. Wishing all the very best.

Hi Laura! Welcome! Sorry you can relate so well with my story, but know you're never alone. I gratefully accept your cyber hug and wish you all the best with your first IVF! Stay positive for sure, there's no reason for anything else. Best of luck!


Just discovered your website today. Thank you for documenting your experiences. Reading your blog has helped normalize so many of the feelings I've experienced over the past two years. Infertility freaking sucks. All the waiting, hoping, and repeated let downs are so depressing and tiring. I'm really sorry about all you have been through. Watching all your videos makes me wish I could reach out and give you a hug. I'm half way through my first IVF cycle and trying to stay positive. Stay strong and I will do the same.
