I am so excited to finally start my treatment!! You don’t even know how excited I am, like this is the day, this is the moment when I make my first step into this brand new world. We have been postponing this for the longest time and now yoohoo!!! I am here writing this post!
Ok, as you can see I am a newbie on this forum but I am sure I am not the latest when it comes to the knowledge concerning fertility treatment. I have been doing my fertility treatment research for a couple of years already. Of course I wouldn’t call myself a specialist but I would not say that I know nothing either. Haha.
Ok. Long story short I am infertile due to my age, I am 52 and my ovaries don’t work anymore. So.. we are opting for donor egg in vitro fertilization treatment! Too many words I know.
Now the problem was that in our country this particular type of the fertility treatment is banned (still after reading too many articles on this I don’t understand why). We of course found the option for us but so you understand we were struggling for some time not knowing what to do in this kind of a situation. I hope you understand that no one is prepared for such a thing when it suddenly happens, right? So we weren’t either.
My husband, the sweetest person ever, as we have done some tests, he is perfectly fine, so the conclusion says that this is only female factor infertility (I am really sorry I can’t operate those terms perfectly yet, I hope when the treatment starts, I will become even more fluent in all of this).
But it was clear right? I am 52 and my ovaries stopped working it’s been years. Don’t ask me why we didn’t think about having kids earlier, I guess it was all due to our work, we both were very busy and having kids would’ve gotten in a way of us building our carriers you know… so yeaah, it is now when we are sitting on a pile of our savings we can say that it is perfectly fine for us having kids. and I think we are very lucky to live today when you can get pregnant with a help of fertility specialists.
Ok, I wanted the story to be short but whatever haha
Anyways, I am having 3 initial consultations in 3 different clinics next week. 3 is the perfect number for us actually, it’s been 30 years since we got married and 3 years since we began to think about having kids, so…!
