Today’s Guest:

Today’s journey update is from a woman named Lara, who you might remember from Episodes 18 and 29. Shortly after she and her husband started trying to conceive, she made her way to the doctor because she wasn’t getting a period. Three diagnoses later, including Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and low morphology, they decided to try IUI first since it was covered by insurance, even though their doctor recommended heading straight to IVF. When that didn’t work, they proceeded with a fresh IVF transfer. Join us to hear how she lost hope multiple times during her journey, but came back more hopeful than ever after a break and tackled infertility with everything she had.
