Trying to keep hope after 7 years
Thu, 05-01-2003 - 8:56am
Hello all! I'm new to this and glad I was informed of this site by my cousin....lucky her after only 1 month of trying she's pregnant....and truthfully I am happy for her. My husband and I have been TTC for 7 yrs! Been thru several IUI's, IVF's, Chlomid, BBT & Charting and high doses of fert. meds....and as far as we get is the embryo transfer....then.....WHAMO! My preg. test comes back negative and I get my period. We took a break from it all for over a year and enrolled with a new fertility center....this one had me start progesterone the day before my transfer....but I could tell my period was already getting ready to happens every month.....I think the progesterone was started too late.....had my latest transfer on 4/15 with a negative test result on 4/26....and WHAMO....again. I have plenty of progesteron left and after hours of research I found out how progesterone AFTER ovulation does help maintain I have my "O" kit.....and we've decided to try on our own this month only using the proesterone once I've shown I've "O".....we'll see what happens. This site is GREAT! If there's anyone else out there who's been thru it all I would love to hear from you......THANKS TO ALL......and BEST OF LUCK!!!! I HOPE & PRAY THAT OUR PRAYERS ARE ONE DAY ANSWERED. Kathy S.

Think we can all identify with "WHAMO" and how rotten that feels! Wish you lots of luck!
