I've been married since 2012 and it has been 3 years and 11 months to be exact. Just like some other couple, we are so excited to have a baby but I wondered why I can't get pregnant after trying everything and all the positions just to conceive. It was already our 6th month of being together as a couple when I decided to have it checked. The doctor felt a mass on my pelvic area and requested for an ultrasound to have it confirmed. Upon checking, it showed that both of my ovaries have a cyst (chocolate cyst) and I was then diagnosed with Ovarian Cysts. I looked for second opinion and the diagnosis was just the same. Still, this didn’t stopped us from wanting a child.
I have undergone series of test, removal of my right ovary and the cyst on it (Oct 2013) and had my hormone therapy for the one left on the other ovary. After the treatment (July 2014), the cyst reduced in size but has developed other complications. I was diagnosed with infertility problem due to Fallopian Tube Blockage and Adenomyosis.
We felt so helpless because everything we’ve done still latter led to infertility. It just so sad that due to those conditions, I may not be able to get pregnant naturally and the only option I have is the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) which is so expensive.
Bearing a child is one of the most precious thing a woman can do. But because of my condition, there were times I felt worthless as a woman and as a wife. I felt miserable, lost my confidence and faith in myself. I also got to think about my husband looking for another woman because I can’t bear even one for him. I’ve been paranoid, stressed and worried about my life. But I am holding on to my faith that God hears my prayer and that I will never ever give up on wanting to be a mother.
Me and my husband have tried so hard to catch the time that I can still bear a child because as day goes by complications are developing and it continuously creates more serious problem on my reproductive system.
My husband has been so supportive and after 2 years (Aug 2016), we finally have decided to go on with IVF though we are not financially equipped. At first, the procedures went smooth and we are already 2 steps away from getting pregnant but still it is physically, emotionally and financially draining. Another challenge also just came along - an unexpected diagnosis which demands for another operation. The doctors have found out some problems inside my uterus and fallopian tube and this should be removed and fixed. I need to go through a Laparoscopic Saphingectomy Operation and we didn't expect that we'll be spending more because of this.
We have no other choice because it needs be done so we can get pregnant. Now, I am humbly seeking for your help to please help me with my hospital finances for me to pass this phase and to be a mother to my own child while I still have the chance. We are really catching the time that I still can bear because of my condition. We are asking for your help for our dream to have a family which I know that everyone dreams of. I deeply appreciate any small measure of help that you may give to us.
Thank you very much! God Bless us all.
