  • Wedding: April 2017

We started trying immediately after our wedding in April 2017. When our anniversary came and we’re still not pregnant, I put my foot down and told my husband that we should start seeing a doctor already. The OB asked for a transvaginal ultrasound and that’s when we found out that I had an endometrial cyst in my left ovary. Given my age (33), the OB thought it best that we start consulting an infertility specialist. The specialist asked us to do a number of tests. She also prescribed various supplements /vitamins. Before I can complete all the tests, I missed my period (should come last week). I tested 3 times and they all came up positive! I guess the progesterone vaginal suppositories made all the difference. I’m now 5 weeks pregnant and we’ll be visiting our doctor this afternoon for the first time since we’ve consulted her for infertility! I’m happy, nervous and scared! We have not told anyone yet! probably once we get past the first trimester!

I fell pregnant at 30 when we were NTNP.. It was an ectopic pregnancy that was somehow missed – it ruptured and I lost my fallopian tube.

We’ve been TTC again since March 2017 (I’m 32 years old now), currently on cycle 14. I’ve temped and used OPKs every cycle, we BD ED in my FW for the most part.

My cycles are irregular, we’ve seen fertility specialists who diagnosed me with mild PCOS, and D.H has a high count but has more abnormal sperm (JUST over the cut off) than is considered normal and also has some motility issues.

We’re looking at starting IVF in August/September. Still hoping we get a surprise BFP before then but I’m really not hopeful. We think the missing a tube is the main cause of our infertility because we did get pregnant without assistance before that. Good news is, because we successfully conceived before, we have a really good chance by doing IVF. It still very much sucks though…
