Hello everyone - this is my first post!
I am new to this forum and I find it so positive how everyone shares their stories and how you get such amazing support and advice. I just wanted to introduce myself and explain what stage I am at.
Me and my partner have been together for 7 years now and we are both 24 years old. We have always spoke of children and wished for a big family however in 2013 we got referred for fertility treatment as nothing was happening for us!
My partners sperm came back 'perfect' in the gynaecologists words! However it was me that was the issue. I had several internal scans which showed I have polycystic ovarian syndrome, I also went for a dye test which showed that my Fallopian tubes WERE NOT BLOCKED. I took various medications, metformin,
Provera and clomid for some while and carried on with the internal scans but after 2-3 years still no luck!
It wasn't until April this year I had a laparoscopy which was meant to be to focus on my cysts and to minimise them however they were not able to do this as they discovered that in fact my tubes ARE BLOCKED and I have a lot of adhesives. I have a high FSH level of 8.4 and I'm now worried about my egg quantity and quality!
Long story short the medication would have never have worked and I'm at high risk of ectopic pregnancies.
I have now been referred for IVF, we have completed our paperwork and chose our clinic. Just waiting for our first consultation!!
Been going through all kinds of emotions and can't stop over thinking it all, just wondering has anyone experienced anything similar and have any success stories to share?
Thank you if you took the time to read such a long post haha, baby dust to you all xx
