The beginning

My infertility journey begins in November 2015 when my husband (Mika) and I decided that we were ready to have a baby after being together for 4 years. Like many couples with fertility issues, we never anticipated problems and innocently assumed pregnancy would happen within the first months of us trying, only to be disappointed as months went by.

After 8 months, we decided to bring this up to a doctor to see what kind of proactive knowledge could help us achieve our dream. The process going through the NHS (public UK healthcare system) is painfully slow (more on this later) and it took another 6 months and over 10 blood tests until we could get an initial overview of our health issues.

Tests and Results:

REBE TESTS

MIKA TESTS

FSH
LH
Progesterone
Ultrasound

Antral Follicle Count

RESULTS

Low Ovarian Reserve
E.g. My ovaries are like a 50 year old woman

Normal

The verdict is that my chances of having a child were slim and I am very limited on my options. Since January, I feel an unbearable desperation to get started on treatments as fast as possible. This has probably been one of the most challenging things going through infertility… the wait.
