Our IF roller coaster

When I got married at 20, like most, I never suspected I would have any trouble conceiving. Having never been on BCP, I figured it would happen eventually. I was in no hurry in college anyway.

Fast forward after college, and we decided to seek help- it was time to swallow our pride and admit we had a problem.

Initial OB/GYN ran blood work and determined I had 'resistant ovaries' with a FSH of 11.2 at 23 years old.

After many years of the TTC and IF rollercoaster, DH decided he wanted off the ride. Shortly after hearing his news, I found out I was pregnant without any help, and much to my disbelief. We had tried for almost 15 years!! Sadly, it ended in miscarriage.

I have moved on with my life, remarried a wonderful man, and now await the next chapter in our lives. I have a laparoscopy scheduled for March 17; then we will try all over again.

We have since determined I have elevated FSH (highest 16.2) & endometriosis. I respond poorly, if at all, to injectables.

Medications tried: Lupron, Gonal F, Follistim, Menopur, Repronex, Clomid, and Femara.

Surgeries: 2 Laparoscopies (3rd one scheduled for March 17), 2 D&C, HSG, 2 Hysteroscopies

We've tried: numerous IUI's, 5 IVF's

I am the epitome of a human pin cushion, but I refuse to give up- I'm not done fighting yet!

Re: Our IF roller coaster


Congratulations on your new marriage. I have followed your story for the past year on these boards, and I cried for you when you posted about your divorce and unexpected pregnancy, and then really cried for you when you posted about your miscarriage. I know all these difficulties has made you an incredibly strong woman and partner, and I'm really glad to hear your wonderful news and that you will continue to try for your own baby. I really do see you as one of the most inspirational people I have "encountered" during this IF journey I am on. The best of luck to you and your new husband.
