Hi ladies. Where has this group been all my life?! It’s Absolutely brilliant! I’m 25 years old and about to go through my first round of ivf. Any other 25 year old women going through it also?
This is how i found out I would need IVF.
I was a normal girl growing up until puberty hit I didn’t start my period, very flat chested.
I thought it might be down to my mum being a late starter. Went to doctors at 16 years old and sent me for a scan right away. I had an ultrasound and went in to see doctor . They thought I had a condition called androgens syndrome. (No womb,no ovaries) . The doctor had put me on the contraceptive pill (oestrogen) to pump me full of the hormone until my appt with a gynae professor in London came through.
6 months later after taking the pill my appt came through, went up to London had a second scan and out of no where a WOMB had grown from nothing to something. This was one of the happiest days of my life. I have a condition called Swyers syndrome. XY female.
If there are any other women out there with this condition then say hello!
Science is a bloody incredible thing isn’t it! Wishing all my fellow ladies having ivf the best of luck.
