: Hi, My Name is Nikki. Like you, I also suffer from infertility. My tubes are damaged, I ovulate
: sometimes, and my hormones are sooo off. Every month my heart breaks. I was able to take
: clomid and the shot that makes you ovulate and progesterone. But they didnít work. I thought for
: sure it would! At least I prayed it would! But God didnít answer my pray yet!! So now I have to
: do IVF! (we canít afford it) My ovaries also swell and they hurt so bad? My Doctor doesnít seem
: to concerned, she tells me to take a pain killer! Does anyone else experience this? Isnít that kind
: of dangerous? In my search for some answers and hope on the internet, I happened to come
: across FAITH. Have you heard of it yet? FAITH is a bill that would make insurance companies
: cover our infertility treatments. You can read it at http://faithact.tripod.com I really hope
: that you do because the word needs to get around to support this. We need to help eachother.
: Because by going through what all of us here have(infertility) makes us sisters .....and brothers!
: There is a lot of talking going on about this and you should be a part of it! So, spread the word!!

: Thanks,

: Nikki M


Nikki,
I read your last message on FAITH. It brought to light an awareness that has helped me become inspired
to try and help this cause. I will be contacting our State Representatives to encourage them to endorse this
cause.

I am also an infertility patient. My husband and I tried for five years to have a child and with the IVF we
successed. We have a five year old daughter conceived using IVF. Also, we have a 18 mo. son that
was conceived naturally. So both of my children are miracles! The doctor told us it was a slim or no
change of having a child naturally.

If you have any questions on IVF please let me know. I will do my best to share my experience with
you. One piece of advise, look for a IVF specialist with high statistics. Not all doctors are as successful
using IVF and others.

Good Luck!
Natalie
