I am 39 and was diagnosed with endometriosis 18 months ago (I had no symptoms, but was struggling to get pregnant despite all other tests being normal). Following a laporoscopy, trying naturally and clomid we then embarked on IVF.
IVF resulted in 7, day 5 blasts of which 2 were transferred and the tests frozen. Both implanted, but only 1 had a heartbeat at our 7 week scan. I then miscarried at 9 weeks. This was 2 weeks ago.
I would love to hear from others that have gone through a similar IVF experience and / or have laterally had success either naturally or through FET / IVF. How have you coped?
I feel like the miscarriage has been the ‘straw that broke the camels back’ so to speak. The past 18 months have been hard. I feel isolated, lonely and struggle with friends getting pregnant / their small children.
I hear of women that go through endlesss rounds of IVF and do get a happy ending. I just want to learn how to cope with the ups and downs as I am feeling totally floored following this miscarriage.
Many thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
