    How many IVF cycles have you attempted?
    One

    How much has IVF cost you financially (roughly)?
    Around $6000
    What were the reasons for trying IVF?
    Hubby has very low sperm morphology.
    Has IVF affected your relationship with your partner, and if so how?
    It was hard for him to deal with because the problem was due to his infertility problems, but having our baby girl has made our dreams come true.

    Have you been offered counselling at your clinic?
    Yes
    Has your clinic advised on lifestyle, diet and alternative therapies such as acupuncture etc and how they may impact your success with IVF?
    Acupunture, but I didn't get the chance to actually try it.
    Do you have a cut-off point or maximum number of IVF cycles you are willing to try?
    Nope!
    Has your IVF specialist discussed with you how many cycles you should attempt?
    No
    Have you thought about life after IVF and what you will do if unsuccessful?
    Didn't get to that, luckily I got pregnant on my first fresh transfer and I have now just given birth to my sweet baby girl!

    In your own words, and as many words as you like, describe how you feel IVF has changed who you are and/or impacted on your life.

    I am honestly the happiest person in the world! Nothing means more to me than my baby girl. She is the reason for life and for me to breathe. I don't worry about small stuff now-just her. IVF made her possible and I will be forever grateful for science and God. My family are so happy now and we spent the first Christmas and new year celebrating our new baby girl. I will be using ICI again to try and give her a little brother or sister soon! I now forever have a best friend in my daughter and I owe my doctor my life! Yes, there are needles, hormones and lots of stress-the results is the best gift you could ever possibly imagine! And after so many needles and blood tests-pregnancy needles mean absolutely nothing. I remember the nurses being nervous to take blood during my pregnancy, not realising that I have been through IVF and did not even bat an eyelid at blood tests or needles lol! Nothing this good comes easily and I will appreciate my daughter more than others ever could because it was so hard to bring her into my life!

    Hello everyone,
    let me just thank you all for sharing your experiences and I'm so happy that I have found this website.
    I was just wondering to know if any one has any experience with using donated frozen eggs?? And what the success rate has been?
    I would very much appreciate if anyone could share their thoughts and experiences with me.

    Hi,

    I just want to share my experience and ask other users about the problem I am having. I am 30+, had IVF recently and it was fine, though there was only 1 cell collected but thats what you need. I had small ovary and my husband had only 4% good shaped sperms, though doctor said both of these factors do not say we cant be parents but can delay and as we have been trying for 2 years so we thought to go with IVF. It was good 1 embryo which was transferred and yes I am 6 weeks pregnant. My blood test shown that I am pregnant and my scan is due but yes i can feel now that I am pregnant.

    But from last 1 week I feel tired which I never used to feel earlier. I feel short of breath which is my real worry and have cold too though I am allregic as well so cant say is it just regular or what but yes my head paining badly because of all this. Can anybody suggest if they had same symptoms.
