Hi everyone, My name is Jennifer and I wanted to share my story in hopes that people can help me make a change in the way thingshave been going with my trying to conceive battle. January of 2012 the love of my life and I started trying for a baby. Now I knew it would take me longer than the average woman because I only have periods once every 3-9 months so I didnt actually know if I was ovulating at all. Thats why we started trying so early in our relationship. Needless to say time went on and we had no luck... so I started tracking my cycles. I had no regular symptoms of anything, I never got a positive ovulation test and this was when I really started to worry. I started looking for medical answers. I saw 4 different OBGYN's that all kept telling me "it's normal to have irregular periods, just relax you have planty of time." Which of course is easier said than done. So I switched doctors again, went to an appointment where the doctor actually said and I quote "well you don't ovulate" and ge said it so dry like it didnt matter and he didn't even test anything to come to this conclusion. I asked him how to regulate my cycles his response was "birth control" which entirely defeats the purpose of trying for a baby. Needless to say i stormed out it was shortly after that that i wound up in the ER witb severe abdominal pains. They did an ultadound and discovered a ton of cysts on my ovaries and one had swollen and then ruptured. I then found another OB to give a chance and she was my savior. She did progesterone tests, folicle stimulating hormone tests, then a very painful HCG to see if my fallopian tubes were upen (which they were) and then she put me on Clomid which is a fertility medication. This medication caused massive side effects. Everything from mood swings to hot flashes to lactation. By this time I was just tired of failing... tired of taking test after test and spending more money on things that were just messing with me. So my doctor referred me to a reproductive endocrinologist but my insurance doesnt cover it and its outrageously expensive. So I started research and started trying natural suppliments and dieting. Ive bee. Oing that for 8 or 9 monthsnow with no success. I want to try IUI or IVF but I just cant afford the expense so im asking for help. Anyone that can even so much as send a dollar my way will help. I want more than anything in the world to look Brian (my other half) in the eyes and tell him we finally did it and that he is going to be a father. I have longed for this for too long.
