A successful TTC Journey

Hello,

Thank you all for welcoming me here. I have been looking for a forum where I can share ideas with people. I am glad that I joined this group. To cut the story short, I wish to say that I have been TTC for the past seven years and I was on the verge of giving up when God send some help. So I feel obliged to share the story with every member of this forum. I got married 12 years ago, and easily conceived our first born who has just turned 10. After about three years, I started TTC for our second born. It was a long, frustrating journey that saw me visit several clinics looking for help. I went through numerous tests hoping that doctors could discover what was making it difficult for me to conceive. We visited a reputable clinic in town, and I was taken through some tests. After two weeks, we went back to the clinic to pick our results. We were shocked to learn that I had depleted my ovules and so it was not possible for me to conceive naturally. We are all at a loss, and we didn’t know what to do. That evening we did not talk much because we didn't know what to tell each other. Later a friend of us advised that we try IVF. We visited biotexcom where an egg was fertilized using my husband’s sperms. The embryo was transferred to my uterus, and now we have a baby girl.

Hi there, congrats on your success! I've heard a lot about Biotexcom, but I thought they were specialized in surrogacy, not IVF. I read some positive stories about the experience of surrogacy motherhood at Biotexcom, yet still the more you learn the better 🙂 So, did you enjoy your experience with them? The reason why I'm asking is because I'm considering this clinic to be the one, where I'll have surrogacy motherhood. I understand that it's not your case, still any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hello, Hannah_J

I have tried to give a general response to all those who responded to my post. However, I am sure it did not answer your specific questions. As I mentioned earlier, the responses I received from contributors were overwhelming, and I am afraid that I may not get time to respond to each one of them. However, I have created some 10 minutes to respond to your response. Now, you have mentioned that the clinic specializes in surrogacy and not IVF. That is not true. In fact, the clinic offers surrogacy, IUI and IVF services. I spend a lot of time ta the facility, and I can tell you without the fear of contradicting myself that IVF services are available. All you need to do is to contact the management via email or whichever method you choose, and they will invite you to send your examination history. If you convince them that you can actually carry a child, you will be invited for further examination. You will be picked at the airport and booked in one of their facilities. They meet the cost of accommodation, transport, and food. You will go through some tests, including having your AMH, FSH, and LH and if your karyotype looks fine, and if they ascertain that you do not have HIV and hepatitis, they will get you on medication to stimulate your endometrium to grow. They will also stimulate your ovaries and retrieve an egg for fertilization.

Hello Leo. I am so happy for you. It is truly refreshing to read about your success. The forums here are full of sad stories. Not many women are as successful as you. I hope that through you they can find the answers they seek. 7 years is a long time. Your dedication is admirable. I'm glad your patience and efforts paid off. Now, could you tell more about IVF? Who is eligible for IVF? How long does it take? What medications do you have to take before and after the procedure? How much did it cost? This and other information you provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there. Welcome to the community. It is such a pleasure to read your story. I'm glad it had a happy ending. May you have a great life ahead. Your story was so inspiring. I hope others can find the success you manage to find.Would you mind if I asked you some questions? I want to know more about IVF. A colleague of mine is considering opting for it. However, she is intimidated by the sheer volume of information out there. You can't really trust the information you get online. Which is why she wants to talk to someone who has personally experienced it. If you could provide some more details about your IVF journey, it would be great. Thank you in advance.

Hi there. I'm afraid I don't have any experience with either of the clinics. I just didn't want to read and run. I saw that you hadn't received any answers. That's why stopped to reply. I hope you managed to come to a decision. Do let me know how it went.

Hi there. I am happy to hear that. Your story was quite touching. It was just the motivation I needed. I have down in the dumps lately. Have been trying to conceive for so long. Month after month I feel this is it. This is my month. However, the hpt gives a bfn every time. Then AF also shows up. I was on the point of giving up. However, your story has given me a new hope. There might still be away. Please tell me more about this clinic. Thanks.

Although you have crossed many hurdles in this journey of TTC to finally having a baby. But as I always say that end is always beautiful if you have put your all efforts in that stance. IVF is a good option for all those who are facing fertility issues and your post will motivate them also. Am happy to see a happy champ in this forum. Good luck

Hello Leo. Nice to know about your success. Was your first child conceived naturally? Or did you have to go through IVF then too? I have heard IVF can be pretty hard. In terms of side effects that is. That is the thought that scares me. Pregnancies are already hard. I wouldn't want to make it harder than that. Was it easy for you to get IVF? I have read that they don't intervene if you already have children. Do tell me more about the clinic too, please. Where is it located? How can I contact them? What is the procedure like? I am looking forward to hearing from you.

You can't generally believe the information people get on the internet. Which is the reason she needs to converse with somebody who has by and by experiencing it? On the off chance that you could give some more insights into your IVF travel, it would be incredible. Much obliged!

Hi Sadie852

Thanks, for your response. Indeed many couples that have visited the clinic have walked out of it smiling, and I believe it is your turn. Just to give you some details about the clinic, I would like you to note that women who have visited the clinic have had a chance to benefit from either surrogacy, IUI or IVF. Surrogacy alone benefits over 360 couples per annum. For egg donation IVF, all that you need to do is to contact the manager at the clinic via email and send him your examination results. If you prove that you can carry the child, you will receive an appointment and allowed to visit the clinic. On your visit, you will be met by the managers who will help you undergo the initial consultation and the necessary blood tests. Your husband will also be requested to donate his sperm for analysis. If your karyotype looks fine and you do not suffer from hepatitis and HIV, you will be put on medication that can help your endometrium grow. This is important because it makes it possible for the embryo to be implanted in the womb. If you can’t produce your eggs, you will be allowed- to choose donor egg via the database. The clinic allows you to select 4-5 donors from the database and they will finally select the most appropriate one for your case. The egg obtained will be fertilized in the lab and transferred your uterus.

Hello dear! Your story was very touching. It was quite recently the inspiration I required. I have been down in the dumps of late. I have been endeavoring to consider for so long. After a seemingly endless amount of time, I feel this is it. This is my month. I was really tired of my medication related to my heart disease and could not finalize my decision on surrogacy. In any case, your story has given me a lot of hope. I know there is still a lot left in my life and I am looking forward to it. It would be ideal if you reveal to me more about this facility and if they also offer surrogacy process. Much obliged.

I'm happy to see things turned out well for you. You are a lucky woman. Who could have thought that the troubles were just temp and that you were waiting for something so great... So beautiful. I'm putting you on my inspirational people list. My husband and I are trying to conceive for so long now. I sometimes would just think to give up. Get tired, you know. After reading your story, I am thinking to myself why can't I keep on trying. That's at least I can do on my end. I am sure many others will also find your story as beautiful. Stay blessed all!

Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum. Not that experienced in the arena but will try my best to share my experiences so far. My husband and I had our IVF last year. It was a failure. I'm glad to hear that yours was a success. My husband asked me to do this all over again this year. I just could not believe him. I mean it's good that he wants a child but does he really want to lose me and then enjoy and play with the baby. That was so selfish of him. He was not like that before. I mean I got so sick after the trigger shots and everything. Doctors told me that my body is not that strong to bear a child through IVF. Yet, my DH wants me to repeat the whole process. It just does seem so right. That's selfishness in its pure kind. You lady, should not go for your #2 through IVF. Don't, until you think it's time. How can I know? Well, that question is subjective but I think in your case, it would be better if your daughter is a little grown up and also your body is healthy again. Goodbye!

Hi Lyeo! I am really glad to read your post. I have found it to be a story full of positive thinking. Full of hope. Asking us all to get away from the negativity that surrounds... Whenever I come on this forum, ladies whine about them being TTC for years. They want to quit. They weep as if this is their religious obligation. Every once in a while I come across a post like yours. That makes my day. I will agree with others here that please share more of your story and efforts. It'd be also great if you could share info about IVF. What are the good clinics? What are the costs involved? Is the clinic in question really that good? Hope you can spare a few mins to answer this all :)

Hi all

I may not get time to respond to each one of you because the responses I have received are overwhelming, but I would like to say thanks a lot for your kind words and the support you have given me. As most of you have agreed with me, TTC is a difficult journey. It needs perseverance and commitment. As I have already mentioned, mine journey was extremely difficult, and it required a lot of support from everyone. In one of the threads, someone wanted to know whether during all that time I received support from my husband’s immediate family. The answer is yes. This is why I want to take this opportunity to thank my husband and his family for standing with me during that trying moment. I know how some women who go through the same get frustrated by their husband’s family. This was not the case for me. Let me appreciate @ emilywilson for her encouraging words it is true that there is too much information on the internet about IVF. Unfortunately, most of it is fabricated and has not been verified. Your friend is free to ask me any question concerning the procedure given that I successfully went through it, so I stand a better chance of giving her first-hand information. Feel free to ask her to message me or ask the questions via this platform, and I will respond to them as soon as I get a chance to do so.

Hi there. I'm so happy for you. I can totally relate to your experience. I had a similar experience. I was ttc for 2 years. The first 1.5 year we didn't bother visiting a doctor. We thought it was just a matter of time. After that, we started worrying. It was discovered I had PCOS. I didn't want to go for tedious treatments. Especially, since they are not guaranteed to work. So, we decided to opt for surrogacy. We also went for BioTexCom: mother-surrogate.info/. It was probably the best decision of my life. The clinic set everything up. Now, we are just waiting for news from the surrogate. She is 36 weeks pregnant!

Hello there. I'm glad to hear that. I wish to hear more success stories like that. I recently started ttc. It has only been two months. No luck yet, however I am still hopeful. We have decided to try at home for 6 months at least. If it doesn't work out then we might visit a doctor. However, I don't want to waste time. I want to know what my options are. So, that when the time comes, I am prepared. So, can anyone help me. What is the better option? IUI, IVF or surrogacy? Both seem to have their own fair share of pros and cons. I am unable to select one.

Hello there, it actually made me very upset subsequent to perusing your story. I felt each expression of it. Being a mother I see how it feels. In any case, I am happy that you have your first child to yourself. Try not to lose heart on having an infant through IVF. A huge number of couples experience this treatment consistently. My closest companion experienced a similar difficulty. She additionally decided on IVF. In this way, don't surrender and don't give apprehensions a chance to bother you. You will have your second one soon. Endeavor to take the path of least resistance. Wish you a good luck!

Hello dear. So happy to hear about your success. Might I ask some questions? Why were you unable to conceive naturally? You did have the first child. So, why did you have trouble the second time? I am trying to determine when is IVF a good option. I have endo. Will it help me? Should I try to fix that first? My doctor isn't too optimistic. He says that it might not be curable. I really don't want to believe that is true. However, if it is, I want to know how to proceed. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi dear. So glad to catch wind of your prosperity. Might I make a few inquiries? Why were you unfit to consider normally? You had the main kid. Things being what they are, the reason did you experience difficulty the second time? I am endeavoring to decide when is IVF a decent alternative. I have endo. Will it help me? Would it be a good idea for me to endeavor to settle that first? My specialist isn't excessively hopeful. He says that it won't not be reparable. I truly would prefer not to trust that is valid. Be that as it may, in the event that it is, I need to know how to continue. Your assistance would be significantly refreshing.

Hello Lyeo. I'm glad to hear that. Your story is so inspiring. A friend of mine was recently declared infertile. She took it pretty hard. I think the best way to help her feel better is to tell her about the solutions available. I hope you won't mind if I ask some questions. How was your overall experience? How long did it take? How cooperative was the clinic staff and the doctors? Most importantly, how much did it cost? I looked up the clinic you had mentioned. The website mentioned it is located in Kiev, Ukraine. My friend lives in the States. So, how much does the air fare, visa, accomodation etc amount to? Looking forward to your answers.

hey you! I'm so glad to see that you got what you wanted.Also, i applaud you for sharing your positive experience with us. This has given me some insight as well. you see just like you I'm currently going through a huge mid-life crisis, I was in an accident around a year while I was pregnant with my first baby. After losing the baby the doctor told me I would never be able to conceive a child of my own.I'm also looking in to hire a surrogate mother but it is not a norm in my country. I don't have a problem travelling, I'm also looking into such options and hopefully ill find a solution as this is tearing my life apart and I'm only 26 years old. I would never be able to forgive the person who made my life hell and took my baby for me. sorry to be so gloomy I don't mean to take your happiness away but please if you can guide me in any way do let me know I'm looking for suggestions on surrogacy and its cost and whether it has any legal consequences. Also congratulations on your healthy baby I hope you have a happy and a healthy family. Take care much love and kisses.

Hey, Lyeo, really glad to know about your achievement.This is such an inspiring story for the people who are actually disappointed in infertility. I am actually one of them I have tried IVF but I was not satisfied with my clinic. It fails two times. But now I am searching for some specialized doctors and clinic. You really helped me in it.I almost gave up but now I am again confident as I am struggling from past 3 years, but you lived this for last 10 years. I understand the fact that you have to be patient and determined to get important things in life.And this is my ultimate desire to give birth to my baby from my womb. So I won't go for surrogacy But yes! I will try IVF again from the clinic you have got your treatment. It would be great if you can give me more information about the clinic and doctors.Take care and congrats once again.
