My Treatment: In Vitro Fertilization (IVF),

My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for 2 years without success when my OB advised fertility treatment. We found out that both of us had a number of factors that hindered us from naturally conceiving children. I started with 3 IUI's and did 2 cycles of IVF's with another fertility company when we had to change insurances. With my new insurance we could finally join Shady Grove Fertility. A blessing in disguise for the change. At first I was hesistant and tired of the disappointment that I felt from my last experience but after meeting and talking with Dr. Saffon and staff we decided to try one more time. At this moment it had taken us 5 years without success. By the time I saw Dr. Saffon I was passed the IUI stage and we went straight to an IVF cycle. Dr. Saffon looked at all of our medical problems and was able to get the right type and amount of medicine for me to take. The first cycle I became pregnant with our son Henry who is now 6. What an awesome miracle. SGF was right there with me through the entire time and process. As I was not getting any younger and I had my medical issues to deal with, my OB suggested that if I was going to have any other children that I had to do it soon. Henry was a year old when we tried again with IVF and we were blessed with twin girls. They are Anna and Emma who are now 4. Their big brother grew up fast to help me out because it ended up being they are only 18 months apart in age. So I thank SGF everyday of our lives for our 3 beautiful miracle babies.
