fertility after successful IVF
Wed, 01-02-2013 - 4:06pm

i tried for 10 years to have a baby and. nothing worked. my husband checked out fine- no issues with his sperm.  the issue was my eggs. finally i wen the route of IVF with an egg donor (sister was my egg donor) and it was successful the first time.  i considered myself very lucky. because of escalating abuse once i got pregnant, i left my husband when i was 10 weeks along. months later, i gave birth and my daughter was perfect. what a blessing.  i was resolved to be a single mom of one. when my daughter was one, i re-married and found out i was pregnant a couple of weeks after that.  i was shocked.  i was nervous throughout the entire pregnancy that something would go wrong.  everything went fine.  healthy baby boy who is now 4 months old.  has anyone else heard of this happening before??? i read a bit online that women sometimes become fertile after a successful IVF procedure- somehow the hormones change or something. ???

I've heard of this as well, my SIL being one of them. Congratulations on your baby!
