Heidi, I hope that you get your 4th attempt.
My request was denied in # 5, only on 2nd thoughts they kindly agreed to give me ivf 5, not that they believed in it... no, they did not... (to be honest, neither did I) but to give me the feeling that I could finish ivf satisfactory(ly?).
And I was sooo unhappy. Cried so much. Agreed when they told me. But a few days later, crying all day, I thought: NO. This is MY LIFE. This is MY FUTURE! They can not decide for me! I want to be the one who is saying: I have enough (and believe me.. I was so close, I was so fed up with the treatments.. ) not the hospital! And everything so okay! low fsh, eggs good quality, sperm well enough... a lot of cyro's after..
did you know I even got pregnant after my little boy?
It did not work out, helas. I got my period only a week later..
In Israel you can have 7 attempts orso. And I think that is more reasonable! In nature women need about a year (12 months) to conceive... why limit it to 3 attempts for women who need
ivf? I think we have less chance with limitations to 3!
(In Holland after 3 attempts you have to pay yourself... about 3000 euro, that is why most women stop after 3 ivfs).
In my opinion, infertility is an illness and should be treated that way!
and I know, not everybody conceives with ivf, but we should all have a fair chance!
Heidi, I so hope for you that your dream may come true!
And I hope you have a good docter to help you, to see your need and to see that you really have fair chances!! And with a low fsh, I am sure you surely have!!!
ps, that is not me on the happy picture..(doesnt matter, that is a friend of mine... I am the one on his 2nd birthday).
this is my boy now, almost 5 years old!
I wish you, and all the women waiting for a child, all the best, all the luck, and above all: the child you long for!
