Well, its' been 6 years and I am still waiting for that BFP. This entire 6-year journey was quite nerve-wracking. I am glad that I have finally found a reliable clinic in Ukraine to start my surrogacy treatment. They gave me real hope. I have never been this positive about having a baby before. I have already signed my contract and am looking for a surrogate to carry my baby. I hope to finalize one soon and start my journey. Fingers crossed!

Things were different in my case. We did start trying after one year of marriage. However, unfortunately, nothing was working. It was a very stressful situation. I had never thought about this side of the journey. We went to a doctor after 12 months of trying. They asked us to get some tests done. This is when things took a very bad turn. We were told I suffered from a poor ovarian reserve. I was so disturbed. I thought my world had come to an end. We tried many procedures after this however, nothing was working. Now we are visiting another clinic hoping for things to work. However, I am keeping my expectations low despite the fact that they sound quite promising. Finding a good clinic is very important when you're on this journey.
-Low AMH and High FSH
-Poor Ovarian Reserve
-5 IUIs (failed)
-1 IVF (failed)
Life is a total mess

I TTC for a year. It still failed for me. It became really tough because nothing was working out. Then, I decided to opt for assisted conception. That was a great decision. It worked wonders for me. So, all in all, I would say it's been a little over one and a half month.

Hey there! I hope you are doing well. After 1 week of my marriage, I started TTC. Babies were something that I dreamed of since childhood, so I couldn't wait for more. But I was unaware of my infertility, I had a birth defect I was infertile since childhood. After trying for some years when I got myself tested, the doctors told me that I will never be able to become a mother. I was devastated, I lost all hope. Then my friend told me to join these fertility forums. At first, I thought she was just messing around but when I joined these forums, I found out about assisted conception and many good clinics for myself. Now I m having my surrogacy at this clinic abroad, things are going great for me. Still, pray for me, my surrogate is pregnant and the due date is only some months away. Just can't wait more, I hope this time it works out for me. Stay blessed! Good Luck everyone!

Hi there! I hope you are going well. I m trying from last 6 years to conceive. Because of PCOS, I m not able to conceive naturally. Many doctors told me to go for IUI but it didn't work out for me. I don't know why it failed because every time the results were more than good enough but in the end, it didn't work. So now I m visiting this clinic abroad for my IVF. Everyone told me to go for IVF because of the high success rate it has. The reason why I chose this clinic abroad is that of the positive reviews about it. My sister also had her surrogacy there so I m quite hopeful. I just hope this time it works out for me. Pray for me, Thankyou <3. Stay blessed. Good Luck everyone.

I TTC for six months. It was quite a tough time. However, if you add the assisted conception time, then it probably amounts to more than a year. I managed to conceive after my second IVF. I miscarried on that attempt. However, the second time I got my BFP, that was really sticky! Managed to go all the way, that time!
