I don't feel like I can say this in real life but truthfully I wouldn't have done ivf. It's obviously a very personal thing as for so many people it is a godsend but for me it was a very long nightmare. When I look back I realise how ill it made me, how much I missed due to being so ill & how much it has changed me for the worse as I have been left with extra health issues & diagnosed with PTSD & am still childless. I've only told one person this & they said it would all have been worth it if I had been successful - I'm not sure but I'll never know. My gut instinct told me to stop long before I did so the positive that came out of it is that if I have decision to make these days I don't ignore my gut feelings.
