It's now been 2 years as of Jan 6th and still have been unable to conceive again. Its been a heartbreaking road. I hope to meet some friends and ladies with similar struggles here.

Hi, lovely! You aren't alone on this path. I cardially welcome you too, on behalf of all the ladies who've been a hell of support for me and will be the same to you in your need. Just make sure you discuss your problems with others and you'll always find someone who've been through a similar situation or sailing on the same boat with you. In both the cases, you can find hope and support - Which has been sth that kept me on even after the devastating failures in medicated ttc and ivf. Now I'm 40yo, diagnosed on endo & PCOS. I've already been through 2 lapos which made no changes to the treatment. My 2 ivf fresh cycles with own eggs ended in bfn. I'm doing my best (We both are doing our best) to prepare for the next ivf shot. This time we're going to use donor eggs. Hopefully this would be April. My dh is a rock of support and this gives me strength not to blame myself. I may sound mad, :shh: but once I even thought to divorce him just because I wanted to put off me this blame and guilt and everything which makes me feel a complete emotional wreck. I did think my dh deserves better life and well-deserved kids into his life as he's going to be an amazing father.
Well, coming back to treatments, I really count on donor eggs. (They're going to be young (from a donor of18-25 yo) and obviously healthy. Our previous shots we got only 10 fertilized. Resulting in embryo quality - a mix of As, Bs and Cs. We don't expect donor's results to be like that. Though we are for signing a 5 shot package to have more attempts in case this one won't work. I'm trying not to think ahead, just considering the facts we've faced so far.
Never meant this post to be that long, hun :oops: But it's how it all feels. I'm thremendously sorry for your loss and the grief you've gone through, but.. when world says 'give up', hope whispers 'try it one more time'. One day God will bless us, brave worriors, with beautiful little ones. Wish you and everyone all the best of luck in the world :hugs:

I thought I could update, ladies, here. I'm happy to announce we've been recently successful with our overseas clinic. This was our att#3 but #1ivf with donor egg. Both previous rounds oe ivf home brought no success. I haven't been for a while on the board, battling some of the prego symptoms. Feeling exhausted almost all the time. My legs seem swallen, don't feel at comfort with it. Sore boobs and headaches coming on and off. Seems I lost my goooood apetite, eating fruit and veggies mostly. But these are the things I've been waiting for all my entire life :hb: :hb:

What a poor management they had! I was so shocked. After my checkup, they asked for an handsome money for the report. After a week, I got my report from that clinic in which they just declared me infertile. They didn't mention a single reason. I am so worried now. Need help whom to contact.

I'm sorry you have such experience with the clinic. :shock: If I'm not mistaken, Adonis is in Kiev, right? We used another clinic. That sounds awful to have to fight for investiagtion given your circumstance. I cannot believe they didn't say a single word on why you've miscarried!. I do feel sometimes were just numbers passing through. And not actually a human person with feelings and needs! From what you've said so far you are definitely an extremely strong person and will fight this out :hugs: I'm sorry for the grief and anger you're experiencing and that you've had this road. I really am hoping that your next step will be a lot less than anything you've been through.

katte wrote:Hello everyone, I hope you all are well. I am sharing my pains with you. It had been two years since my marriage that I was trying to conceive. But two month ago I got the news that I am pregnant. But this happiness was not for much time. I had a road accident and my baby was dead in it. Not only this doctors declared me infertile too. Today, sharing with you all this is taking me to that time back. I am so stressful and depressed. I don't know what to do now. My husband has contacted a clinic in Europe. Till now I am satisfied with their job. But I am little afraid for the future too. I hope all goes smooth. My appointment is tomorrow. I will let you all know what is going to be next.

God love you, poor thing!! I'm so sorry for your loss..You're an absolute bravie to have found strength to continue your journey. God bless you, hun. I'm glad you've found peace at your Europe's clinic and that you're been treated well there. I wish I could experience positive things with whilst my both ivfs undergone home. We were doing with own egg then. I remember after egg retrieval for me was a little tough. 'Cause I suppose I was really under-prepared for that part. Both from my docs and my own research. Though I was over-prepared for the stim part!! The day after egg retrieval I felt fine. Felt a little heavy in the stomach. The doc called that day and told to eat salty chips and gatorade to help with the bloat. The following two days I had trouble standing and walking. Peeing with pain made rough nights. I'm not saying this for nothing, but I think what I learned can help someone else with the mistakes I made. I didn't feel safe and at comfort with the clinic seems from the very beginning. I didn't find docs were supportive and even when I had trouble healing I couldn't look for much support from my nurse or someone else from the clinic. Of course, they all had loads of things to do, but I really wanted them to be more compassionate with people's strugglings..I understand how you're feeling, luv. I hope you've found the way out so far. Do drop a line please. :hugs:

No doubt it is very difficult to TCC in this situation. You are very bravely fighting with the hurdles. My sister was also infertile. She was very very fed up from the clinics. Them she goes to the BioTexCom clinic. They treat her very well. She gets the surrogacy procedure from there. Now she is the mother of two beautiful children. I am very happy for her. So I will advise you to go there. They are going to the London. It will be on 18 and 19 of August. So go there and start treatment. Hope for the best. Good luck.

Hey there sweetie! You surely have our support. Most of us are struggling through these issues. I know it can get really frustrating. I had three miscarriages as well. On top of that, what was even worse is a clinic's behavior. They treated me so wrong. I was truly upset with their attitude. It's called Adonis.

Hello there, I hope you are in your good health. I hope God gives you the power to overcome this tragic trauma. This would be easy if you take everything positively. I am also dealing with hormones problem since my teenage. I am young but infertile. What to do now? I am sick of TTC journey. It is not resulting in anything. I am thinking to opt for surrogacy now. I think my sister clinic would be best for it. Yeah, she had her surrogacy there. It was her best experience. I went with her. I know many doctors personally. It would be a great help to me. I hope surrogacy helps me.

Hello dear, welcome. I really felt sad after knowing about the difficulties you are facing. I am having the same pain. I had a miscarriage when I met a road accident. I have a plate in my pelvis. Due to which doctors have declared me infertile. This is really hard to admit your inabilities. Well, I am thinking of surrogacy now. Because there is no other option left for me. I am quite hopeful that surrogacy will do some magic. For this, I got to know a clinic in Europe. It is different than others. They don't fool others just for money. But they are willing to have open sessions first. This proves their reliability. I am thinking to move to Europe to start it as soon as possible.

I am sorry for what you have gone through. Social media is a platform to share our views, thoughts, and feelings. The warm response from others is always heart touching. This makes me feel that we are like a family. I had fertility issues too. I had the uterine polyps disease due to which I was left Infertile. Yet, I was not grieved. I planned not to lose hope. Through the constant support of my husband, I am now a mother of two beautiful kids. IVF has changed my life. I have done my IVF from the center in Europe. That's the best Clinic. I hope it brings endless happiness to other infertile people's life too. I wish you the best of luck.

Oh! It's really sad. I welcome you dearly here, it is a great forum and is really helping many people. I can understand that It must be hard for you to deal with the situation. No one deserves to have to go through such a situation. Don't be upset you are not alone facing this situation there are many ladies who are facing it. You just have to handle calmly. It is the dream of every woman to enjoy motherhood. It is never easy to face such difficulties but believe me many solutions are availaible. If one door is closed many doors are open we just not have to lose our hope.

Dropped in to wish you all the very best with your journey ahead :wink:
Surrogacy is the blessing. But from an international perspective, surrogacy is illegal in most countries around the globe. And, in those where it is permitted, the surrogate and the biological mother cannot be the same person. In fact, in those countries where the law does not include this as a pre-requisite, the trend is to avoid traditional surrogacy arrangements to avoid potential legal issues.
During the last decades, social media and other digital media have shown us a number of cases of celebrities who have become parents through surrogacy. Unfortunately, this has spread the wrong idea that surrogacy is an option for people with a high socio-economic level only. The good news is that it is actually very different.
Finally, it should be clear that a pregnancy is not a mathematical equation and many factors can influence the process. For this reason, there are time factors involved that all the parties involved should take into consideration. Before the gestational carrier gets pregnant, intended parents may need to spend long hours learning about the legal and medical procedures that will be happening throughout. Although this may seem to be a drawback, dedicating time to being familiar with these procedures is the secret to succeeding in the surrogacy journey.
See, we've successfully passed DE IVF at clinic abroad. There we've met a lot of people. - those undergoing treatments and those who were just doing their research on where to be treated. We also met a couple who were opting for surrogacy. They were actually at the stage of signing up their contracts. Later we got to know they came from Brazil. The intended mom faced multiple pregnancy losses. Earlier they've passed IVF cycles with own egg, All the times she got bfp. But for some reason she couldn't hold the baby longer than for 7-8 weeks.. :cry: I can hardly imagine this heartbreak. poor things, they were putting all their hopes into surrogacy plan..
They told us they chose Ukraine purely for surrogay friendly law. And when they realized it would cost them less than in other countries - the decision came on its own. I haven't been through surrogacy myself. As I've mentioned before - DE IVF was our next plan to count on. And I know that surrogacy might be the most challenging of all fertility treatments. But I'm sure I'd do it myslef. It's crucial that IP rely on well-versed professionals only.
Good luck and do drop us a line soon.

That's good you've made the decision. Hope you'll experience your journey the best.
It is no secret that surrogacy is a controversial fertility treatment. Even though, from the technical viewpoint, it is nothing but another IVF process, there is a major international debate on whether it should be allowed or banned, and the extent to which it respects human rights. In this sense, the world is divided into two major groups: Those who are in favor of surrogacy, and those who are against. The following are the main reasons why people opt for surrogacy:
Women without uterus. Either for Rokitansky Syndrome or hysterectomy.
Serious uterine conditions such as severe endometriosis. Incurable Asherman’s syndrome. Severe adenomyosis etc.
Uterine anomalies leading to adverse pregnancy outcomes.
When other fertility treatments have failed, including IVF, IVF with ICSI, or PGD. Recurrent pregnancy loss.
Medical contra-indication. Certain existing health conditions can be aggravated with pregnancy or even lead to death if the patient becomes pregnant. Autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and some types of cancer are common examples.
Medication use. If you are using prescription drugs that are incompatible with pregnancy or can have a dramatic effect (May cause birth defects in a developing fetus), you should stop taking them to become pregnant. Unfortunately, this is not possible in all cases, so people are more likely to opt for surrogacy to escape all those risks.
The cost of surrogacy varies on a case-by-case basis. Each case is unique and may require additional treatments or more time for the treatment to be successful. That's why there's sense to look onto ''guaranteed'' packages. meaning in case of failure the clinic refunds you money back. The clinic we've been with does offer such package, called VIP. As far as I know, it's all inclusive. You get unlimited number of shots. (They try again and again until are successful). in case the pregnancy is not achieved through 5 shots in a row, they refund money paid back. (You may also opt for donor egg for no additional fee). All meds are included into the package price. In other words, possible refund is a nice plan back to have. Though the clinic has not a single case of failures leading to money refund. Their live birth success rates are just awesome.
Again, all the very best to you. :hugs:
