Hello everyone, my husband and I did 3 rounds of IVF treatment back in 2004 and none of them took. My issue wasnt due to infertility it was due to me having my tubes tied after having 3 children. Well I wanted one more and we decided we would go with IVF and it didnt work for us. I then went in and had a tubal reversal and was able to get PG on our first try and our son is now 3yrs old. We have 8 frozen embryos left out 16 that we would like to donate to a family who is in need, but im not sure how to go about doing so. Do any of you know anything about this or have any of you ever heard of this?? I will be doing some research to see what I come up with. Thanks! and good luck to you all on your journey:)

My cousin recently told me about the program at http://savingmorethanbefore.com At her recommendation I signed up for their sampler program and I have to share the amazing results with everyone. Using this program last night for the first time, my husband and I had an overflowing cart of groceries and non food general items. In all it rang up to $538.16 but thanks to this program we only paid $ 32.88! We weren't the only ones shocked, the cashier's mouth dropped. It is literally about paying pennies on the dollar for everything!

Hi Guys just wanted to share my story - Im 31 and was diagnosed at 20 with one of my tubes was completey blocked and the other had a very delayed spillage. I was told IVF was my best chance to concieve. I had IVF when I was 22 - It was expensive and stressfull and unfortunatley for me it did not work - My partners sperm woud not even fertilize my egg when they were in the same petri dish! I resigned myself to the fact that I would not have children and carried about my business for over 10 years. When I have AF I normally get tender breasts and stomach cramps. This month was no different - except everytime I went to the bathroom there was no sign of AF - I did however notice mor CM? I carried on as normal - I was traveling to london for the wkend so bought some tampons as knew AF would be here soon, I enjoyed my trip came home and continued life as normal again. It was then approx 3 weeks later when I noticed I had not opened the box of tampons - they were still on my bathroom shelf? I realised that my breasts had been tender for over 3 weeks??? I mentioned this to my friend whom asked if I could be pregant and I said not to be daft, I had been having unprotected sex with my partner for 11 years and had not once fallen pregnant. A few days later I was at work and I couldnt get the idea out of my mind, so I nipped to boots in my break and picked up a boots own brand test (I wasnt going to waste money on more expensive tests when i knew it woud be neg anyway) I took the test in a toliet cubicle at work - I didnt even read what a positive or negative test would look like, I simply read the instructions on what to do! So I peed on the stick - within seconds I had a line in the test window and a big blue cross in the other! I read the reading instructions and I appeared to have a BFP!! I was shaking, but convinced there was some kind of mistake! I went home and showed my partner - he couldnt believe it either, but there was no mistaking the lines of the cross. Next day I went back to boots and bought 2 more clear blue and some strips where you get £5 strips for £3. I took the clear blue and within a minute it told me Pregnant 3+ weeks - since then I have taken 6 tests - all say BFP! I handed a urine sample into my DR on friday and I have to call up tomorrow for the results but I cant imagin that it will be a negative after all of that??? I have wrecked my brain - and the only thing I have done different is I did a colon clense and healthy eating plan for about 4 weeks in april? Did that contribute to this? who knows - but Im just so overwhelmed and excited - this has changed my world around :-) x

IUI can get spendy especially with the injections that go along with it. Luckily for me IUI worked for me the 1st time at least to get pregnant so I have high hopes this time too..fingers crossed. After 2 years of TTC it was time to do something different for us. TTYL I will keep you updated :)

The side effects of clomid are terrible. I'm going to talk to my doctor about Femara. My husband and I have been talking about IUI, but our insurance doesn't cover it. :( I think we are going to try a little longer and if no luck maybe move to IUI. Good luck to you!! I hope you get a BFP!! :) Keep me updated!

I just emailed one of my friend to ask her how many rounds of femara she did before she got pregnant she did 9 rounds of Clomid and then did 2 rounds of femara and got pregnant. That month she also had an HSG where they check to see if her tubes were blocked. This can make you more fertile too. I can attest to that because my first pregnancy I got pregnant the month of my HSG with no drugs and me and DH weren't even trying we were "taking a break" it was a COMPLETE surprise :) She hated the side effects of Clomid as well. It has been so long since I took clomid I can't really remember if I had horrible side effects. I had been on the pill for about 9 years I went off of it June 07. I have had two pregnancies but both were losses. I am doing a combo of Femara/Follistem injections/Ovidrel injections and IUI. I had my 2nd IUI on May 2nd so I get to test on sunday and hope for a BFP!!! I hope you can talk with your doctor and try Femara. Femara (letrozol) is actually a drug for women with breast cancer but has shown to help bring on ovulation so I think this is used quite a bit in fertility. Now that I think about it I have another friend too who did clomid it didn't work so they went to femara. Both of them have beautiful babies :) Hope this gives you hope :) It is frustrating when people tell you are trying to hard because they have NO idea what it is like unless they have gone through it.

smmiracle822- thanks for responding! Yes, I'm on clomid bc I'm not ovulating on my own. It is so discouraging. Every month I go for a 21 day progesterone test and always get my hopes up. Everyone has told me to stop stressing it and it will happen, but that is alot easier said than done. I don't know if I can do Clomid again. The side effects are terrible for it not to work. :( How long did for your friend to get pregnant on the Femara?

I have used Clomid in the past and it didn't work for me, so my doctor switched me to Femara (letrozole). I have fertility issues but maybe you could ask your doctor to switch you to that? I have friends that the clomid didn't work for them but Femara did. I have been TTC for 2 1/2 years and have tried lots of different things but that is my suggestion :) Are you on Clomid to help with ovulation?? Hope that helps.

Hi I have used HCG injections before. I've done HCG injections 4 times. Once I did the HCG shot with timed intercourse didn't get pregnant, the second time I did Femara/Follistem/HCG injections and timed intercouse...didn't get pregnant. The third time I did Femara/Follistem/HCG injections/IUI and got pregnant but miscarried in March 09. I just did the Femara/Follistem/HCG injections with IUI on May 2nd and I test on Sunday and I am hoping for a BFP!!! I have been TTC since November of 07 and have miscarried twice. I have a problem with infertily obviously...my question for you is are your cycles regular? Have you used Ovulation predictor kits to pinpoint your most fertile time??. I guess if you have regular cycles and ovulate on your own I don't think there is a need for HCG injections?? My knowledge of HCG injection is they are used to make sure your follicles release eggs, but if you are ovulating on your own I don't think there is a need for this?? I got thinking though that some people use ovidrel for follicle stimulation too??? Is your doctor recommending these shots for you? When I did the HCG injections it is only one shot and then you ovulate like 36 hrs later. Sorry such a long answer I hope this helps a little???

Has anyone used Hcg injections to help them get pregnant. I can get pregnant, it just takes us a while to concieve. I was wondering if using Hcg would help speed up the process, and if so, how many injections, how often, If I offended u in anyway, for that I am sorry. Thanks for ur time!

Hi ladies. I see there's not much action in this forum, and I hate to admit it, but I belong here. I got PG almost 2 years ago and M/C at 11 weeks. Been TTC since then and nothing. And I haven't ovulated since last August. I had a period late November with Provera, and then another light period after only a week of not bleeding, then nothing since then, I am on CD32 now. I've had blood work and it's normal. Next step will be an HSG to check my tubes and my DH needs to get SA. I just started taking Vitex, grasping at anything to help. May even consider accupuncture, although I have my doubts. My cycles have always been whacked, the first time I got PG, I Oed on CD45. This sux, I wish I knew why my body doesn't work. If anyone's lurking out there and wants to chat, speak up. :)

NavyWifeTG is a fake name and person. This person used my information and photos to create his/her page. Do not listen to them! This person took alot of time to acquire photos and different things about me. They are also posting photos of children that are not mine because they could not find a photo of them online. Do not befriend this person because they are not who they say they are. Thanks for your time...

Hi ladies, I'm not sure where to post this because there isn't a spot for it, but I am an Egg Donor and am scheduled to start my injections to stimulate eggs on the 29th of this month... Has anyone else gone through this or know of anyone else who has? I'd really like to talk with someone to find out how they felt and what the whole process was liked. This is something I really want to do, but I am very nervous about at the same time...

I had a tubal reversal a year ago and only have one tube. I'm doing my first IUI cycle this month. I'll be taking femara and follistim. Hopefully this does the trick for us!!!

Hi there. Little bit of history about me...had a blocked tube and sperm allergy but had a baby girl via IUI last year. Have had some tests done this year which concluded that the sperm allergy is gone but the tube is blocked again. Currently seeing a new dr (yesterday) and had a large follicle on the good side, so she sent me home w/an HCG shot, hormones and homework! If it doesn't work this month, we are going to do rounds of IUI again. I am amazed at science and so thankful that we are able to have children w/it's assistance. It is still scary, exciting and frustrating all at the same time, though. But it's something I believe in and encourage anyone going through it. I haven't been online here as regular as I will be now and would love to hear from any of you and support you in any way that I can, and vice-versa! Hope this finds you doing well and Baby Dust to ALL!!!

To All Women tring to conceive with problems, before you go for IVF or taking fertlity drugs. Please try Accupuncture it worked for me. I was told at the age of 17 that I would Never conceive on my own because I was Post-menposal. I always wanted to be a mother , so I didn't give up hope. I started going to Accupuncture and taking Chinese Herbs after two weeks I started getting my periods back, which I never had since I was 16. After 8 months I conceived naturally !!! =) Women who conceive from Accupuncture have very healthy babies. Im now 17 weeks pregnant, I want to tell all the women DON'T GIVE UP HOPE!!!
