I just want to share my story as an infertile woman and battling all the stresses that come with that. My intend is to inform and to give hope to people who can derive it from this and I want to make them develop the strength to make their situation better, however they choose to do so. This is in no way professional medical advice, just my own experience based opinions. So my awareness of my condition steams a bit further than most would in their own experiences. I was diagnosed with PCOS in my teenage years and ever since then, I was slowly introduced to the idea of my incapability to conceive, be it by doctors, my mother and my own self. So when I got married, I had already been familiar with the idea that me not being able to conceive would be a possibility. I had talked to my husband about this and he was very accepting and understanding of my situation. Neither of us were in a hurry to have children immediately after we got married so, for a few years, I wasn't actively worrying about it. When we came around to conceiving a couple of years later, we did the smart thing of going to the doctor preemptively. After taking some tests, we got our results. And that is when it was confirmed. I was unable to conceive. Even though i had been preparing myself for it, it manifesting in reality was a tough thing to bear regardless. My husband was my rock. He kept me together and he helped me move into the idea of using alternative means to conceive. We tried pills, hormone therapies, even IVFs. They all failed and they were all very painful. I have been hopeless. I have still been looking. There are a few promising procedures out there, but right now, I do not have the confidence in myself to pursue them. I have been thinking about opening myself up for them. But I fear disappointing my husband again. I hope something works out. I hope i can have my child. I will not give up. If you're in the same boat as me, keep strength and have hope. And for those who can reccommend some insight into things i can try or research, I'd appreciate it. Thanks for reading.
