Our success story today is Leyna, who started trying to get pregnant in 2010 after more than 10 years on birth control pills. She assumed, like most people, that it would be an easy process to pregnancy. A short time later, she was referred to a fertility specialist. After several diagnoses were tossed around, including hypothalamic amenorrhea, she was finally diagnosed with PCOS.
Her treatment plan has included Clomid, several rounds of IUI and IVF cycles, and laparoscopic surgery that found fluid in the fallopian tubes. She and her husband moved from Boston to Chicago during their treatment. She became pregnant with twins, lost one baby at nine weeks, but then gave birth to her son, now one-year-old. Leyna fully credits her RE in Chicago with “changing our lives forever.”

Whom We’re Following:
We are following the journey of Erynn, who started trying to get pregnant in April 2011. She and her husband realized after about two years that they needed help. All tests they had done came back normal, but the voice of intuition told her something was wrong. She had a hard time choosing an RE, but was eventually diagnosed with endometriosis and went through laparoscopic surgery.
Erynn’s path has included IUI’s and IVF’s, but her biggest message is to be your own advocate. She had to keep digging until she found answers, and she encourages anyone battling infertility to use all available resources in making the involved decisions. Erynn has the faith and confidence that motherhood will be part of her future—regardless of the path that lies before her. We hope to hear good news from Erynn very soon!
