Our success story today is Kathleen, who has experienced unexplained infertility along with her husband’s borderline male factor infertility. Her five-year journey began in 2007 and includes multiple IUI and IVF cycles and donor eggs.
Kathleen explains the turmoil of going from one RE to another and of taking a break between IUI cycles. She extensively explored Eastern medicine, including acupuncture and herbal teas. She saw the need to live in the present and NOT let infertility dominate every part of every day.
Her biggest positive through the experience was the community of other women that she bonded with through social media. Kathleen shares her “whiteboard approach” to organize her options before finally choosing donor eggs. Miraculously, after the birth of twins, Kathleen got pregnant on her own and gave birth to her son, now 9 months old. You don’t want to miss Kathleen’s exciting story.

Welcome back to Karly, who told her story in Episode 10. She was diagnosed with uterine fibroids, which unfortunately lead to multiple miscarriages. After several IUI and IVF cycles, Karly did a frozen cycle in October that wasn’t successful. She and her doctor are going “gung ho” now with several aspects of health management, including CoQ10, avoiding caffeine, and weight control. Things are going well, and Karly remains hopeful that her next retrieval and transfer will take place in January. We are hoping along with Karly for the good news of a pregnancy very soon!
