I’ve re-written this stupid page about 10 million times over the last 3 years and it never sounds any less stupid.
I am 33. I have severe endometriosis. I tried to get pregnant for 4.5 years. I had a billion hysteroscopies*, 2 laparoscopies to treat severe endo and 9 fun months on Zoladex. I had 2 IVF cycles abandoned, 1 that resulted 2 eggs, 2 embryos and 1 miscarriage at 10 weeks followed by an ERPC. I had several more false starts and a cancelled long protocol cycle before starting a short protocol cycle which ended horribly with 1 mature egg, one 7-cell embryo and one BFN. My next cycle was a treat: 14 follicles, 3 eggs, 1 embryo and another BFN. Fuck.
My ovaries kicked it out the park for IVF number 4 with 12 follicles, 6 eggs (all fertilised), 4 blasts and 2 frosties (oh my god). After transferring 1 day 5 blastocyst my baby girl was born at 36+2.
I’m sure I used to have some hobbies, but now I mainly just whine about infertility and IVF in my spare time.
