I'm From Hanover, MD
My Referring Physician: none
My SGFC Office: Rockville, MD
My SGFC Physician: Michael Levy
Number of Children: 2
Delivery Date: 20 months
My Diagnosis: Unexplained, Advanced Age, Recurring Miscarriage,
My Treatment: In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Donor Egg, Other,

My infertility story started in 2007 when my husband and I started IVF with my own eggs. I became pregnant after my 1st IVF cycle but then miscarried on week 13. Two other treatments failed. We then pursued adoption but that was not successful. This allowed three years to pass. Then, in 2011, at age 44, we decided to give IVF another try. After talking about our options with Dr. Levy and looking at the statistics, we decided on the shared risk donor egg option. My first cycle was cancelled and my second cycle was successful with my two twin boys (2 embryos implanted). I believe that donor eggs have given me the gift of family. I'm feel so blessed to have connected with Shady Grove and to have found out about the donor egg program.
