Give The Gift Of Hope
Hi, my name is Ann. All Iíve ever wanted in life was to get married and have children, a family of my own. I met the most wonderful man in the world and we got married. We started trying to conceive in 2003.
After several unsuccessful cycles I started reading books and doing research on the internet. I took my waking temperature to see if I could figure out when I was ovulating for 8 months and was unable to find a pattern or surge so I started taking my temperature vaginally, still no pattern or surge.
Next I moved onto the ovulation calculator which included urinating on a stick every morning and letting the machine tell me when I was ovulating. The machine knew every time and so we had intercourse, but still several months went by with no pregnancy.
We discussed seeing a fertility doctor and started looking for a nearby fertility center. At first I was diagnosed with unexplained fertility. Several months of frustration went by taking pills and pills and pills when my doctor said my egg production seemed to be out of sync with my uterine lining. Finally we knew at least part of what was wrong and could concentrate on fixing it. My dosage of pills was increased again.
At my next appointment, my doctor said I had a polyp in my uterus and it would need to be removed. The surgery is expensive, but if the polyp is not removed it can hinder pregnancy, cause miscarriages and even become cancerous.
My husband and I both work 40 hours a week but we are having a really difficult time making ends meet due to the expensive fertility treatments. I am reaching out to the community for help to fulfill the only truly important goal I have ever had in life, a family. Even just one dollar gets us that much closer to our dream.
