“We all have different backgrounds and stories but nothing we did, made infertility show up in our life. Unfortunately, it just did and was out of our control. It’s okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, ungrateful and scared because a lot of infertility moments simply just suck.”
My infertility journey began in 2007 after my first ovarian cyst ruptured, though the term “infertility” wasn’t attached to it until 2015, after 2 years of marriage. We had reached the end of the road with my Obstetrician and was told to get the opinion of a fertility specialist. After inter-uterine ultrasounds, ovulation tracking, oral medication cycles with Metformin and Clomid, we were categorized as unexplained infertility.
In 2018 after blood tests, sperm samples and HSG tests, I found out that my AMH levels were low and there was a lot of tissue in my fallopian tubes and uterus. It was suspected that the cause was Endometriosis, though it was never officially confirmed.
Since we had reached the end of our journey with our obstetrican, we started testing at a fertility center, but were still asking around for recommendations. Dr. Moore was recommend to us and as it turns out, he used to live down the street from where I grew up. My parents thought highly of him, so we searched him out. At that time he was in the transition of opening his new clinic which luckily lined up for us to begin treatment at Conceptions Fertility Center.
When we began seeing Dr. Moore I remember him looking over my test results and saying, “Okay, well let’s hurry and get your babies here!” That was the first time someone had made it real. It made me feel like maybe there were babies for me and we just needed to find a way for them to get to us and he wanted to help do that anyway he could.” After they followed the treatment plan including Femara oral medication, Menopur injections, trigger shots with Ovidrel and a sperm wash, they transferred on April 9, 2019 and welcomed their baby girl on December 28, 2019!
