My husband, Tim, and I have been trying for our little miracle for 5 long years, have endured 6 miscarriages, 2 laparoscopy/hysteroscopy surgeries, 3 IVF stim cycles, & 4 failed embryo transfers. We know what it’s like to be let down by specialists & feel like you have no choice but to take investigations into your own hands, especially after an ”unexplained infertility” diagnosis. There’s no such thing! I feel passionately about helping others in the same boat, & try to share as much of my experience as possible, in hopes it can save others wasted time & money. Early on in our journey I was told I had damaged tubes, then 2 years later found out that wasn’t the case at all. We’ve experienced recurrent miscarriage with no explanation, multipe failed IVF cycles with no explanation, and now no pregnancy at all for 2 long years.. It’s finally been discovered Tim & I share a DQ-Alpha gene, causing alloimmune implantation dysfuction- my body has become immune from falling pregnant with my husbands baby. We’ve also just discovered he has sperm DNA fragmentation, even with perfect sperm test results.. We’re now exploring surrogacy & looking at doing our 4th IVF stim cycle in April 2019.
One things for sure; this journey is made so much more bearable with the support from people who get it! Knowlege is power x
