Our success story today is Natalia, who experienced secondary infertility. Natalia has two daughters, ages 10 and 11, from a previous marriage, and had no reason to suspect infertility when she and her husband married in 2011. From that time until the present, Natalia has gone through several miscarriages, irregular ovulation, many timed intercourse cycles, and two major foot surgeries. During some of this time, her husband was deployed with the military overseas. To top it off, Natalia’s RE retired at the end of 2014!
When Natalia chose a new RE, she and her husband moved directly to IVF, which at first was unsuccessful. Her most recent IVF cycle was in September, and two embryos were transferred. The result was a positive pregnancy! Join us for the ups and downs of Natalia’s story.

Whom We’re Following:
We are following the journey of Kelly, who has battled multiple problems within her infertility. She has a lack of cervical mucus, ovarian cysts, severe scar tissue, tube blockage, and borderline diminished ovarian reserve. Kelly and her husband started trying immediately after marrying in June 2014. Kelly’s scar tissue and tube blockage resulted from a surgery in her teens to remove huge ovarian cysts. For these reasons, Kelly saw an RE immediately and went straight to IVF.
Kelly did a “freeze all” IVF cycle in August/September of 2015, and froze four embryos. Another cycle in October/November of 2015 resulted in five more embryos to freeze. This totals nine embryos frozen for future use. One embryo was transferred just a few days ago, so Kelly and her husband are anxiously waiting positive results!
