Hello Ladies,

I am just wondering if anyone has given up on fertility? Have you accepted that maybe children are not in your future? What is your story? I say this because I am almost at that point. Here's my story...

I am 35 years old and my DH is 36 years old. We have been trying to conceive since we got married in 2013. First we tried on our own for a few months before I went to my Gyno and got tested for PCOS ( I always thought I had the symptoms but didn't know if I actually had it). Well after being tested I found out that I did have PCOS. My Gyno told me that my odds of getting pregnany naturally would be slime to none. So she recommended me to a fertility specialist. Went to the fertility specialist for a year and a half and NOTHING. I was pretty much put on Clomid back to back, but my body never responded to it. I left that fertility specialist (because I felt I was just another paycheck for him, not a true patient) and went to another fertility doctor. She started me on another medication to start ovulation and my body didn't respond to it. So we tried IUI and never got pregnant. After that she recommended IVF. So I went through the IVF gament. I gave my body 2 months to heal after my egg retrival due to hyperstimulation before I did the egg transfer (really the only break I have had from infertility treatments). 2 months ago I finally did the egg transfer. I did get pregnant, but miscarried at 6 weeks. What is great is that we have 12 more embryos left that we can transfer, but this will have to be our last time trying a egg transfer. Finacially this is draining us as well as it is emotionally draining us. We have spend thousands of dollars over the last 4 years on this and it's not getting any cheaper. Plus it's so emotional and so draining on the body. We are going to do it this summer when I am off of work (I work in education).But honestly I am so SCARED! I am scared because this is our last attempt at this. I am also scared of having another miscarriage. It's all too much. When I think about it I just want to cry because I think about the heartache of it all and how much I would love to not have fertility issues. I try to think positive because we are going to try one more time, but I have to be honest with myself and think about the opposite side of the spectrum (it not working or having another miscarriage). If it doesn't work I we will probably be a childless household. That thought is sad to me, but I guess sometimes we have dreams that we have to let go. So has anyone come to this point? Have you let go of this fertility thing ? Have you accepted what is? What's your story? After letting go of this fertility thing, did you naturally become pregnant? or adopt? What's your story?

You are really brave. You are facing a lot in life. I am in the same situation. Before marriage, I was the patient of PCOS. But I recover that with some medicines and diet control. Now I got married two years ago. The journey of being a mother is started from that day. I tried a lot but no result. Then we go for TTC and results are still negative. What can I do now? I am so disappointed. A baby is a must after marriage. But I am unable to be a mother till now. My family is disturbed due to this problem. What should be my final decision?
