Infertility & Miscarriage – EC
Four years after my first miscarriage, my husband and I decided to try again. We got pregnant almost instantly, but after seven weeks I miscarried again. When I got pregnant on the second try, I once again lost the baby after five months due to an incompetent cervix (when the cervix is weak and begins to open before the baby is ready).
When I had the cerclage surgery to correct my cervix, my OBGYN discovered I had several polyps, which he removed. After two years of trying to get pregnant and going through more early miscarriages, we finally decided to try fertility treatments. I went through several clomid and IUI treatments that also failed. It seemed the only route to take at this point would be IVF, which our insurance didn’t cover and we could certainly not afford.
My desire to have a child only became stronger throughout our struggle. I continued on my search to find a fertility clinic that could help us. Eventually, I came across New Hope Fertility Center’s Clinical Trial Program. My husband was skeptical at first, but I showed him research I had done about Dr. Zhang and New Hope’s advanced IVF protocols.
We were happy to find out when we were accepted into the Conventional IVF part of the clinical trial. Dr. Yang was the first doctor we saw, and he was very nice, calm, and patient. Another staffer, Nonna, made our experience even better with her positive and friendly demeanor, which helped to make the procedure comfortable throughout. She was truly great.
No words can explain how grateful we are to New Hope Fertility Center and their team. We were blessed with a baby boy, and I was even able to freeze some embryos produced through my IVF treatment which we plan to use when we conceive our second child through New Hope.
