TTC
Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing good! I have been diagnosed with low levels of AMH and high levels of FSH. Due to which I have a poor ovarian reserve. The doctor told us that this means the chances of us conceiving are very low. He told us that I could go for IVF. As conceiving naturally would be very difficult. Has anyone else gone through this situation and could help me out?

Hi Monika! So you have poor ovarian reserve. I think you should go for IVF, conceiving naturally for you is very hard, even if you get pregnant, you will face a lot of complications in your way. I read a story about one lady who had ovarian reserve here, i can't find the link. But she went for surrogacy after she was diagnosed with this. Just choose whatever suits your body. Both are very good options for you. Good Luck! Much Love!

Hey there. Sorry to hear about you. I am not in the same boat as you are but I can understand you. I can feel your pain and my heart goes out to you. You must be going through a lot. It is difficult to know that there are complications on the way of you being pregnant. You have to stay hopeful and strong. I would like to give you some information as per my knowledge. IVF is a method in which you get to have your own child through the help of fertilization outside your body. Your sperms and eggs are kept in a laboratory to get fertilized. Under special circumstance, they are fertilized and transferred back to your uterus. The baby then grows inside your womb. On the other hand, surrogacy gives you a chance to have your own legal and genetically child by using someone else’ womb. In this process, your sperms and eggs are kept in a surrogate mother to be fertilized. After the complete development of the baby and delivery, the baby is yours. You have an option of opting for door’s eggs, just in case you have some problem with yours. But for both the processes your body must be in good health and shape to support you through all this. Stay calm and relaxed. Best wishes. Much love.

Hi there, how are you. How you doing dear. I am really sorry for your condition Yes with low levels of AMH and high levels of FSH. It is difficult to conceive naturally. You should go for some other option now. IVF is really good option. You need to go with it. It is good method. Just try and take multi-package at good rate my friend. That way if you get fail one time than they'll give it another try. Meanwhile if you are going to take this treatment. Try to take it in Ukraine. Those people has high success rate their. That would be best for you. I wish everything will be fine soon. Take care. Best of luck.

Hey, everyone, it has been a long time since I updated this. I basically had meetings with various doctors who suggested to me that I should try opting for other treatments like IVF or even surrogacy. For me until that point surrogacy was the second option. However, I recently had a conversation with one of the cousins who told me her story. She said she had 3 IVF cycles all failed and it was only until her 4rth cycle that she was able to conceive. That obviously did worry me. So I decided to opt for surrogacy as I don't want to waste that much of money. I have started looking seriously into a clinic as well. A lot of people from this forum suggested it to me. So far I love it from the information they have provided.

I am sorry for your condition. I hope that you have accepted the situation. It is necessary for you now to find a solution. The treatments that come into my mind include Surrogacy. You won't have to carry the child that way. You will just have to give your eggs for the treatments. The doctors at biotexcom will take care of everything for you. Consider yourself lucky to be born in such a high-tech era.

Hey Monika! I am so sorry to hear about your condition. But now, there are many other ways of becoming a mother. If you can't conceive naturally than, nothing to be ashamed of. You can still become a mother. If the doctor has advised you to go for IVF. Then you should probably go for IVF. Because the doctor knows the most about your case and he can guide you better about this. But if you asked me then I will just tell you to head towards surrogacy. I know yes the surrogate mother carries the baby for you and it's more expensive but it's worth it. There's no guarantee that you will get pregnant on the first cycle of your IVF. Even my sister became a mother at 3rd attempt. And it's very painful too. If you are looking for a good clinic then there's this clinic in Ukraine where I had my surrogacy. Their prices are low and the treatment is way better than others. I will leave the link to their clinic's youtube channel at the end. There are many good and affordable packages they are providing. I hope that this helps you. Good Luck! Much Love!

I may not be in the same situation but I can feel your pain. We are all fighting our battles here. More power to you. I don't know much about your problem. Reading all the comments here suggested that you should go with IVF. If so many ladies are agreeing with it, this might be it. I myself have endometriosis. It is a hell too. It never bothered me too much before the day I came to know that it is meddling with my fertility. It breaks my heart. What did I do to deserve that? I look at my DH and I see loneliness. Even when I'm with him. Maybe it's just me overthinking. I'm not sure. I'm sorry but I really needed to vent.

Hi there Monika! I'm so sorry to hear about you. You must be devastated! Every woman has the right to become a mother. And so, you will also become a mother very soon. Going for IVF is a good option for you. As conceiving naturally would cause problems in your pregnancy. I hope you have a successful IVF treatment. Good Luck!

Well don't listen to her. Don't be worry about. You just don't stop ttc. Everything is going to be fine. Just survey in different clinics. Try to know about all of the situations. Meanwhile never stop trying. You never know when something happens for you. I am wishing you best of luck. IVF is good procedure. Just don't rely on it. There are other methods are well you know like surrogacy. You can go for them as well. Just try what is good for you.

Well, hi dear! I guess you should go for it! Usually, it's very hard to conceive if you have low ovarian reserve...I don't wanna scare you off...But, tbh you should try an IVF option...You might be easily able to conceive through it. I wish you all the best. xx

Hey, Monika, I hope you're doing fine. Well honestly speaking your cousin is actually right. Especially in your case since you have a low ovarian reserve, it is difficult for one to go for IVF. I am not scaring you or anything just letting you know my experience. I was in the same confusion of what clinic to opt for. However, the clinic I opted for really did help. They basically did my tests and then recommended a suitable clinic which would work the best for me. So I would suggest the same for you instead of being confused consult a doctor.

Your doctor is hundred percent right. It's time for you to think about the surrogacy process right now. Because you can only have a baby through surrogacy process. You need to take extra care of you body when you decide to have a baby through surrogacy. I was lucky to find the perfect clinic for my self. Now you have to do research to find the perfect place for your surrogacy treatment. This is very important part when you decide to have a surrogacy process. I wish you best of luck. But you have to consult your doctor on regular basis. This is very important for you. Doctor can advice you properly on this, Just stop thinking about your problems. This can lead you towards more problems. You have done great job by joining this forum. You will surely get many good information from this forum. There are many experienced couples here, willing to help you to solve your problem.

Dear Monika,your ovarian reserves are low. Getting pregnant naturally is very difficult. Then why are you wasting time. Giving yourself pain physically as well as emotionally is not good. A number of people nowadays are having their babies through IVF. You can go for it without any doubts. My sister had her daughter through ivf last year. It was successful at first attempt.

This is so sad to hear. I feel really sorry for you. But you don't need to worry about all this. There are many ways out there to help you. Since your doctor has advised you to go for IVF, there must be a good reason behind it. IVF is a great procedure to go with. It has helped many couples in need. It has a high success rate. But the success really depends on the doctor you chose. You must choose the clinic quite wisely. Wishing you luck and success in future.

Hey Monika. I'm going to try and make this post helpful for you. IVF means In-vitro fertilization. In-vitro means outside the living body and in glass plates which means laboratory. It is suitable for women who have problems conceiving but everything else is fine. The process includes extraction of eggs through surgical methods. It's a small surgery where eggs are extracted with a very thin needle. in the next step, sperm sample is taken. These two things are combined outside the living body. This is the reason why it is called "in-vitro". After combining, embryos are developed. They are left to develop for two to five days. After their development, these embryos are introduced into the uterus of the mother. The rest of the process takes place naturally. An embryo attaches to the uterus and further growth takes place. I hope I was clear enough here. this process is helping so many couples nowadays who faced infertility problems. It is a very common way of assisted conception.

HI, Monika. Hope you are in good health. I will try to help you out as best as I could since I have gone through IVF twice both ending in MC. IVF is only successful if you have a healthy uterus and a good immune system. So if you are opting for IVF I would recommend you first get yourself proper medically diagnosed to see if your uterus is fit to carry a child. After 2 failed IVF I opted for surrogacy and through this beautiful procedure, I have a baby daughter now. I hope everything turns out good and healthy at your end but god forsakes it does not there is always the option of surrogacy and there are many good surrogacy clinics in Ukraine. I hope I was helping take care.

I am also trying to have a baby from a decade.But i didn't had any luck with it. Now i came to know about surrogacy. I live in Bulgaria where surrogacy is prohibited.I heard there are many clinics for infertility treatment in Ukraine. I read about many clinics there from these forums. I have found a clinic from Ukraine.People talk mostly about this clinic. I will contact this clinic and will consult them about my problem. Surrogacy is very popular there so i guess i will also have a baby from surrogacy.

TTC was never an option for me. Because i was infertile due to cancer. Let me tell you my story of infertility. i'm new here.I'm from Japan.We moved to Europe to find our heaven. Surrogacy is ban in Japan.And i'm infertile due to some cancer reasons. So we moved to Europe to find surrogacy related clinics. We consulted many clinics in Europe. Than we came to know about clinics in Ukraine and we moved to Ukraine. In Ukraine we found a very good clinic. Now we are having twins with the help of this clinic.The clinic gave us a very good surrogate mom.With the help of that mom we are having our two twin daughters. We are so excited and happy. Feedback and suggestions much admired.

Don't worry dear. There is a solution to every problem today. If you are unable to have a baby from your own womb then why not you go for surrogacy. Surrogacy is the most common method of having a baby with your own DNA. Don't lose any hope dear i'm also 43 years old and i have also no luck with kids. I had many complications regarding pregnancy.I conceived for 3 times but resulted in miscarriages every time.So i also gave up on getting pregnant again and again.I researched over the web for different methods of having babies and i came across surrogacy.Surrogacy is a good solution for mothers like us who can't have a baby of their own.While researching about surrogacy i came across a clinic many times.There are very positive reviews about it over the internet. So i contacted the clinic and told them my complications they answered my all questions.They cleared my misunderstanding about the surrogacy. So now i am ready to go for the surrogacy method. I have persuaded my husband to go for surrogacy.He is ready if we can have a baby via surrogacy of our own DNA's. The clinic will find a good surrogate for our baby.

Hey dear! how are your doing? Well, my cousin sister had this situation and even her doctor asked her to go for IVF. Probably IVF and surrogacy are the solutions that are considered in such situations. And these treatments have equally proved to be effective. As of my cousin, she has a baby now through IVF. And he is adorable no doubt. Each one in the family loves and adore him, So if your doctor is suggesting you this, then I would ask you to go for this solution. Soon you would return satisfactory. Hoping for great IVF journey for you. Do share here your progress. So that would also help others in proceeding with this treatment.

Hello, dear. Personally I didn’t have any luck with IVF, but my friend did. She was ttc for years with no success. After two attempts of IVF she got pregnant and gave birth successfully. So, it really works. I know that a lot of women need more than one attempt to succeed. But you have to be patient if you want to have kids. I believe that your dream will come true. Girls above were writing about surrogacy. It is also a great idea. In case if IVF doesn’t work for you, it can be a great way to get a baby. There’s no need to live childless. An outside woman can give birth to your baby and it will be genetically related to your husband and you. This service is getting really popular among infertile women. And this is not strange. I still don’t understand why it is illegal in most countries. Such countries as Ukraine offer surrogacy legally. Personally I have chosen the BioTexCom reproduction center. They offered us the VIP package at the lowest rate. To say truth, I’m pretty satisfied with the clinic. They have done everything really great. We had nothing to worry about. They have chosen a great surrogate for us. I visited her a couple of times. She’s a very polite and nice looking girl. It was a pleasure to deal with her. Well, she gave birth to our twin boys and we appreciate her help. The clinic did a great job to help us with our problem. Now we have a big and happy family. Our boys changed our lives. As we already had one son, we have three amazing boys.

I was trying to conceive from last 10 years but had no luck. I went to best clinics for checkup but the doctors can't find why i was unable to conceive. Firstly i had few cycles of IVF but i failed at IVF. Than i went for IUI and also failed at IUI. So a friend of mine told me about surrogacy. Now i am going for surrogacy. If you people have some suggestions for my plan please let me know.

If he is saying that it would be bad for you. I think you should listen to him. I think you should go for the IVF. IVF is really going to help you out. You don't have to worry about anything, dear. Everything will be alright for you. Just take care a lot of yourself. Go with the doctor recommendations.

Hi, Dear i hope you are doing fine. I feel sorry for you. You are suffering because of infertility. I can understand your situation. I am also an infertile. I can feel your pain. Well, i can't go through IVF as it's success rate is very low. I chose surrogacy over IVF. I am sharing my experience just in case you change your mind. After knowing about infertility i was in deep depression. But luckily, at that time my husband supported me. We decided to go for surrogacy. We are from Japan. Surrogacy is banned there. We moved to Australia for treatment but failed. A friend of mine suggested us to look for Ukraine clinics. We moved to Ukraine. There we consulted Bio TexCom for the surrogacy treatment. They did a wonderful job for us. After testing they finally suggested a surrogate to us. The treatment package was also very reasonable. They also bear our travel and stay expenses. I am satisfied with the treatment. If you are interested, for more details visit http://mother-surrogate.info/

Hi, Monika. So you have poor ovarian reserve. I think you should go for IVF. Conceiving naturally for you is very hard. Even if you get pregnant, you will face a lot of complications in your way. I think it is better to stay on the safe side. Take care of your diet and everything. I feel like it is better to adopt in your position. It is only because i know it can be hard to go through a miscarriage. It is not easy to jut lose a baby. It becomes a part of you. Anyway, it is still unto you, and how you wanna move forward. Just know that we are here to support you. Goodluck with everything. I hope the best for you.

Howdy, what's going on dear? I just everything will be happening great. I'm really sorry for your condition. It's harder to conceive a baby naturally. You should go for some alternative treatment. IVF is very famous in between people. But success rates are very low. So, this will not work for you this time. Surrogacy is the other option left. Surrogacy is a great blessing of science. It has benefited many aspirants. Most of the specialists recommend surrogacy treatment first. I'm sure that it will work for you this time. Baby dust to you dear!

Hey Monika. How are you doing now? Well I am feeling sorry about you. But this is not a big problem. Well you can try for sometime. If you conceived naturally then that's good. Not good but too good for you. But if things did not worked for you then still there is no need to worry. There is many other to become mother now. If the doctor is giving your opinion to go for IVF then definitely there will be a reason behind it. It depends on your choice. If you want to try then that's good. In fact, you should try. A final decision is yours. Listen to your inner voice. Take cares.

This must be really difficult for you. I know that this is not a good thing. I hope you could be able to get yourself out of it. Don't worry about it. Everything is going to be alright for you dear. Just give surrogacy a chance. Else adoption could be your way too. Well, you must decide what you want for yourself. That could be the way for you to go.
