Hello :-)

Hi ladies, I just wanted to introduce myself and say thank you for starting this new group. It's sometimes hard being in a TTC room where people get their BFP in their first month of trying.


Me (31) and my DH (28) have been TTC'ing since November 2009. We have since been to a Fertility Specialist (FS) here in South Africa and it was found that I have a very low Ovarian Reserve as well as Stage 3 Endometriosis.


DH's sperm also isn't so hot which makes it virtually impossible for us to conceive naturally.


We did our first IVF last year October. We retrieved 4 eggs, put back 2 perfect embryos and ended up with a BFN :-(


My endo is back and so I have to have another lap before my next IVF. We have decided to give ourselves a break this year and do our next treatment in December. I have to go onto the pill until then to stop the endo from getting worse.


This IF journey is a tough one...


Good luck to all of you!

I'm so sorry to hear that you have had such a long and difficult time with this. I have not been trying anywhere near as long as you have but I can appreciate what you mean when you said it can be difficult to see others get their bfp on the first try. I am happy for them for sure. A bfp is another little bundle of joy coming onto the world but when it is not YOUR bundle it can be a sad moment, too.
I hope that your endo is taken care of and that your next treatment is a smooth and successful one. Hang in there...
btw- We went to South Africa for our honeymoon and it was the trip of a lifetime. Beeeeautiful country with beautiful and lovely people... :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your endo coming back.  It is the worst thing to hear that you have to stop ttc when all you want is a baby!  I know women say this all of the time, but it is really true that we spent years preventing and not trying to get pregnant, and then when we are ready to try, we simply can't!  It is tough, hard.  It's indescribable pain.  But I wish you all the best with getting healthy this year.  Please keep us updated with your journey!

Thanks so much ladies... It has been an extremely difficult road up to now but all we can do is keep the faith and push on.


G8R.Girl, I too am very happy for those that get there BFP's without a struggle as I wouldn't wish IF on my worst enemy. It's just makes me so sad and brings up all those horrible questions you keep asking yourself like, "why couldn't it be that easy for me" and "when is it going to be my turn"?
