Fertility Bowl

275 members
A place to discuss fertility issues, benefits, and ask for or offer support.

Has anyone done acupuncture in the weeks leading up to FET? How was your experience? The data’s not great on this topic, figured I’d try to get some anecdotes here too.

Been trying for 2 years, started the fertility doctor tests, then lost coverage. Just got it back and did a “reset” appointment at fertility clinic, only to find out I’m pregnant. The irony!

Wanted to share... after 3 surgeries to prep for IVF and 4 failed IVFs we decided to go with an egg donor option. And today I have just received a call they found us a donor matching my phenotype. 🎉

4th failed IUI today. Disappointed and depressed. How many before make the move to IVF?

Insurance just denied me coverage for my next round of IVF. No questions here, just needed to say this to a group of people more likely to understand.

One miscarriage, three failed IUIs, no explanation why. I am totally devastated. How do I give up on the dream to have a baby?

Recently found out I was pregnant and there is a possibility of being put on a project with cross country travel. I am 8 weeks along and my OB has said that kind of weekly travel may be too much contd

Freezing eggs. Tomorrow is the egg retrieval. Hormones are through the roof. Please tell me that 1) it doesn’t hurt, 2) these feelings aren’t real (it’s getting crazy in my head)

Any IVF success stories out there? Failed our first transfer with an AA graded genetically normal embryo. No one can tell me what went wrong, feeling very discouraged. Only 2 embryos left 🙁

Has anyone done surrogacy? We just failed our first round of IVF. The RE says our odds are good for the next round but I’d like to look at all the options.

Has anyone taken lupron depot? Our last FET wasn’t successful and the doc is recommending this due to some inflammation she found. I took the first shot however my partner did more research...contd

did the 'modern fertility' test, I'm 29, got my results back. most of it is in the normal range but def at borderline the bottom of all ranges. a bit concerned because my AMH levels are low as a 35yo

I am 30. Anovulation and on progesterone challenge. Anyone start ovulating after? I’m just a bit pessimistic. Progesterone is just the lining...

Anyone have experience with Clomid? What is the process like and how long did it take to conceive?

Guy here 🙋‍♂️ wife and I have been trying to conceive and I’ve been placed on a cross country case Mon-Thurs for 6 months. Not ideal for baby making. Could I even say anything to staffing?

It’s devastating. Glad to see a bowl for couples like us. What did we do so wrong that god gave us this ordeal. Just decided we would laugh our way the rest of our life versus crying the rest of ours

A friend sent me this - infertility what to say and most importantly what not to say. I think I need to print it in bulk and keep handy for all those random people that try to give me advise.

How do people handle the post-transfer wait? I’m losing my mind.
