Our success story today is Jen, who has PCOS, but identifies more with the diagnosis of secondary infertility. She conceived her first son with relatively little intervention but then faced many challenges as she tried for a second child. “When you have a successful pregnancy, then you automatically assume it’s going to happen again.”
Jen endured multiple miscarriages, failed IUI cycles, and then moved on to IVF. She and her husband opted for CCS (comprehensive chromosomal screening) on the embryos because of their prior multiple losses. Jen became pregnant but never really felt like she could relax or be optimistic. She did, however, deliver her second son about a year ago!

Whom We’re Following:
We are following the journey of Amber, who has been diagnosed with PCOS and is just a few months into her infertility treatments. Coincidentally, Amber is a nurse at the Fertility Centers of Illinois and is a patient of Dr. Allison Rodgers, who is a frequent expert contributor to the show.
Along her journey, Amber saw her gynecologist after a few months of trying and was told, “It may take a while; keep trying!” Amber wasn’t satisfied, so she turned to Dr. Rodgers for additional help. Amber has done three timed intercourse cycles and two IUI cycles so far. Amber remains positive and optimistic because she “sees Dr. Rodgers work miracles every day!” Amber is in good hands, so we look for good news from her soon!
