Name is Samantha and I live in KS with my husband who is a soldier on Bomb Squad in the Army. Hey, somebodys gotta marry into it right!? LOL.
Anyways, we have been TTC for a year and a half now with no luck. We have done Ovulation kits, sperm friendly lubricants, etc. Nothing...We started looking into infertility a couple months ago and found a Dr. in Kansas City who did alot of testing on both of us to discover if their was indeed an issue. Sperm analysis came back GREAT! Dr. said my husband has "super sperm..." LOL. Only thing they found with me is during my intravaginal ultrasound, they discovered I have Polycystic Ovaires, but my Dr. said he can not determine if I indeed have the "syndrome" aspect. He says some women often will have Polycystic Ovaries but not the actual syndrome. Labs all come back normal despite a slight increase in my testosterone levels, which were BARELY above normal. My periods are regular every month and I ovulate regularly, according to my progesterone tests and numerous spikes in ovulation tests. So there seemed to be no reason to why we should be having difficulties.
My husband has a bad back which makes our "timing" difficult for the past year or so, so this may be the culprite in our situation unfortunately.
To make an already LONG story short...we have decided to start IVF treatment. I have been on BC pills for 3 weeks now and am just about ready to go off of them. I go for my blood level testing this week to determine if I am ready to start my self injection shots! IVF Orientation was OVERWHELMING to say the least! I cried after I left the office because I was just like "How am I going to do all of this..!?!" Im scared of Overhyperstimulation, im scared of the shots, im scared of the procedures!
I need some helpful support from anyone going through IVF or getting raedy to! Any support/expierience you can provide will be SO helpful!
Thanks so much ladies!!
