Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I am 31 years old and my DH is 35. We have been ttc for almost 11 years. I have a growth on my pituitary gland which messes with my hormones. Subsequently I have erratoc ovultion. I have just completed 4 cycles of clomid and am due to see our consultant again 27th November and at our last appointment we were told that if clomid wasn't successful then next step would be IVF referral.

Any advice, tips etc would be very welcome as I am so scared of having IVF, have heard almost all the horror stories and I am terrified of it failing.

What are your experiences?

hey, you sound just like me. We were married 12 years before I got pg with my daughter. To come to find out, I had a pituitary tumor (9mm), which I decided to have removed. I got pg 4 months later. Now I have secondary infertility, other issues causing it. I wish you the best.

Hi Mrslfc - Glad to have you join us, I know its slightly different but 30 yrs ago my Dad had a tumour on his pituitary gland and was told he wouldn't have kids that was obviously in the days of little medical knowledge he went on to have 3 daughters!!! There is always hope! stay positive and dont be scared, IVF is very daunting you will laugh,cry,scream,shout,be very poor! but rest assured you will never be alone....we have all been where you are and it is not pleasant but your desired outcome will be yours for the taking, the key to sucess is BELIEF!!!! :D Take care and I really wsh you the best of luck.....
