A little bit about us...I’ve got one blocked Fallopian tube through scarring from endometriosis but apart from that our infertility is unexplained. After 2 years TTC we started IVF in September 2017 and have had 3 unsuccessful embryo transfers so far. We’re out of frozen embryos now so are due to start again from scratch in Autumn (dates still TBC) I’m both excited and terrified about starting again! It’s great to have the opportunity for IVF, but it is hard work!! Just got to keep hoping! 👍🏼🤞💖 #ivfjourney #ivf #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport
Hello IVF community! I’m finding right now that infertility can be a very lonely place so have created this space to hopefully share some experiences, learn from yours and keep smiling through these tough times. I know there are so many others out there fighting this same battle and we can only get through it together, right?? 🤞💖✨ #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity
The worst.
Sounds about right.
Endometriosis is a condition in which the endometrium, the layer of tissue that normally covers the inside of the uterus, grows outside of it. Most often this is on the ovaries, Fallopian tubes, and tissue around the uterus and ovaries; however, in rare cases it may also occur in other parts of the body. The main symptoms are pelvic pain and infertility. Click link in BIO to find out more about how we can assist you with any infertlity concerns you may have.

I’ve been feeling very depressed this whole week since getting the news we lost this third pregnancy. Today a very very sweet friend surprised me with sending me this sweet miscarriage support box she got me off of Etsy. This is the kind of thing that can truly make a difference in someone’s day when they are hurting and I just want to say thank you so much Sasha for sending me this. You have a beautiful heart and have been so supportive of me through all three of my miscarriages I’ve gone through. ❤️ #miscarriage #miscarriagesurvivor #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesupport #miscarriagematters #pregnancyloss #pregnancylossawareness #pregnancylosssupport #pregnancylosssurvivor #grief #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #infertilitysurvivor #multiplemiscarriages

July 21, 2018 // I recorded myself getting the shots.. then bravely watched the video afterwards. How do you ladies do these injections yourself!?! I would be stabbing myself with my eyes closed. Ya'll are troopers. I'm feeling the tenderness at the injections sites and am definitely bloated. First ultrasound + bloodwork tomorrow morning to check progress! 🤞Please don't let the bloat be from the massive dinner I inhaled tonight🤞 . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivffirsttimer #ttc #ttcjourney #infertility #secondaryinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #ivfsisters #1in8 #ivfstims #ivfstrong

✨💉 time flies when you live and die by your injection schedule 🙃 ultrasound and blood tomorrow morning. My ovaries feel HUGE and heavy but I realize how lucky I am to be responding as quickly and positively as I have so far. I’m so proud of all of us in this community who pick themselves up and keep going everyday 💉✨
How many of y’all can say you have experienced one of these words .. • I can say I experienced two of theses words . You are not alone . After mutiple ectopics, I will be having IVF to conceive, and soon but not to soon , so yeahhhh.. • You are not alone and when we face these problems it is embarrassing, or feels like a plague, but I want these couples to know do not feel this way .. • After 5 ectopics, which the doc said has never happened . I learned that the accident I was in at 4 , being ran over a car , caused damage to my pelvic area and my hip is tilted and sits on my nerves that control my reproductive system . I am currently seeing a Gunstead Chiropractor, Dr. Benjamin from Fort Mill , SC , twice a week , to correct it before I do IVF .. • I am also focusing on all my health and eating right as everyday not just a diet. And other things too , just and overall health journey to get my body right for this process.. • Thanks for reading and if you struggle with any of the issues above , I pray that it will be resolved. Don’t Give Up!! .. • #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #webeatinfertility #infertilitywarrior #infertilitysisters #thisiswhatinfertilitylookslike #secondaryinfertility #unexplainedinfertility #infertilitycommunity #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ectopicpregnancy #lowspermcount #womensupportwomen #dontbeashamed #coupleproblems #marriagequotes #marriageproposal #havemybabies #stillbornstillloved #stillborn #iwantbabies #tryingtoconceive #ovaries #ovariesbeforebrovaries #reproductiverights #reproductivehealth #reproductivejustice #coupleshirts

How am I doing? It might not be the answer you're hoping for. I've been more consumed with my infertility for the last 8 months than I have in the last 9 years of trying. It's hard not to be while enduring fertility treatments. Before I started this step I could avoid it—the devouring pain, the heartbreak. I'm a pro at avoidance. I could put my focus on other things, like my career and relationships with friends and family. I could try and find happiness in other things since I couldn't find it in pregnancy. Now I'm reminded every time I take a pill, give myself a shot, go to the doctor, see a pregnancy announcement, a gender reveal, a baby, see a negative pregnancy test. Basically, I never stop thinking about it. I'm failing at the one thing I should be able to do, the one thing I was born to do. And the feeling has trickled into every aspect of my life. Failing to get pregnant. Failing to be a good friend/wife/sister/aunt/daughter. Failing to write well and finish any novels on my own. It's like this flickering neon sign above my head. Failure. After our 2nd failed IVF earlier this month, there have been no words that bring me comfort. Nothing anyone says makes me feel better about the outcome. If anything, I get angrier the more people try to console me. I don't know why I was prompted to come to Utah, why THIS doctor was the one I felt the most peace with. I don't know why I've had to spend an accumulative of 7 months away from my husband over the last year, why we had our 3rd failed IUI and 2 failed IVF cycles. I don't know why this is my path, why there's been tens of thousands of dollars spent with nothing to show for it. But I do know I have 3 more embryos waiting for me. As much as I want to throw in the towel, I can't. I won't. Someday I'll regain the strength and courage to continue on with this process. Someday I won't feel this anger and despair, this dominant sense of failing. I'll want to get out of bed. I'll stop hating my body. I won't be so angry with God. I'll have faith again. And that is what I'm trying to focus on. The someday. 🖤
I realized today I've never taken the time to introduce myself to all of you who don't know me in real life 💁🏼 . . . I know a lot of accounts are specific TTC accounts or infertility accounts and real life friends and family aren't typical followers. If you didn't know, this account is my real life Instagram, I don't have a separate account for the two because, infertility is my "real" life. Educating others on the reality of your life, can be more impactful when those you're educating have an emotional connection, so I am an open book and I don't filter who can and can't see where we are at in our journey. Those real life friends of mine who want to know what's up, will stick around and my TTC tribe has grown pretty strong on here so I haven't found the need to move my journey elsewhere. . . . I don't say this because I think two accounts isn't a good idea. Infertility is a personal journey and I know that everyone has a different comfort level when it comes to being open about it and everyone has a different purpose for starting their account and sharing their lives with the interwebs. I started sharing because I wanted to educated, I wanted to end the stigma & I wanted to feel heard, that's why I post for everyone to see. . . . Anyways, I'm Rita 👋🏻 I'm 26 as if the 15th 🎉. I've been married to my best friend and the love of my life for a little over 2 years now. We've been trying for baby number 1 for 5 years now, yup we started "not trying" when I was 21 (no judgment welcome 🚫) we've been seriously trying for a little over 3 years now and have been seeking medical help for as long. I have PCOS and have known from a very young age that I wouldn't be able to have children easily, fun fact I actually told my husband before we were dating I probably couldn't have children 🤷🏼‍♀️. Basically infertility wasn't a surprise to either of us, we walked into our marriage knowing what was ahead. We are the proud fur parents to two amazing pups 🐶🐶 they're pretty much our reason for life. We live in the Las Vegas valley but are originally Bay Area raised. I'm in my FINAL year at UNLV (hey reb!)..... Continued in comments:

I’ve never felt so unsexy when trying to make a baby. Thank you all for your suggestions - I took them all! I’ve been on stool softeners for three days and brought in the laxatives (by doctor order). I realize how bizarre it is to be talking about 💩 on instagram, but this is a real side effect, and one that has made my recovery rather miserable. It’s hard to pinpoint the pain in your stomach when there is so much still trying to heal. Furthermore, the looming threat of OHSS is a real fear. How do you distinguish between the pains and discomfort? Hoping to find some relief soon 😞
As I began to redefine momhood for myself, there were some who looked negatively on my dog mom and host mom roles. But they aren't living my life.

If you want something badly enough, never give up. Ever. Do whatever it takes to get it. Turn over every stone, try every available method, and if you fail, pick yourself up and try again - and again (and sometimes AGAIN!). If you want to be a mom, or travel the world, or adopt a hundred pit bulls - do it!! If that’s your calling, if it’s something you want more than anything, don’t stop until you get it. Take a different path, try another door, but don’t give up. There are so many ways to make your dreams come true - and to make a family. For me, it was one and the same 💫 Thank you for coming to my TED Talk 😘 #ivfsuccess #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #ivfpregnancy
“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Jamie and I have been filling our time to the brim with beautiful stories, shows, music, and projects to distract ourselves from the weight of the unknowns we’ve experienced through our walk with infertility. And the great thing is: what was once such a dark, isolating existence has swiftly become rich with beauty and growth. I’ve also written about some new updates and there is already SO MUCH MORE TO TELL YOU. (Link in profile.)

We can ALWAYS, always make choices in our lives to begin again, start fresh, find freedom. When we feel we are trapped with no choice, we feel like victims. But even in difficult situations with no apparent way out, we can always make a change EVEN IF it is literally only how we choose to think. There is power in options, in choice, in hope, in beginnings. If you feel trapped and beleaguered by life, begin something new. Start a new book, find a new podcast, follow a new person, make a new friend, start a new page in your journal, try a new food, watch a new show. There is mental and emotional power in making forward step motions, even if tiny. Start something new. Dream something new. Think something new. Keep moving forward, and while I’m as introspective and reflective as anyone, remember: “don’t look back, you’re not going there.”
Last night, we got the go-ahead to trigger at midnight and IUI appointment is scheduled for Sunday morning! I’m so thankful to have gotten to this point in our journey; to uncharted waters. At the same time, we are both cautiously optimistic. Things look good, with the exception of my slightly thin lining, and we have one, maybe two(!) follicles to work with. Everything up to this point, from the past year and a half or so, has been for this: A chance at becoming parents. It may seem like a long time to finally be at our first attempt/IUI, and it is, but we needed this time to cope. We needed time to take in the fact that we were working with two diagnoses. We needed to take time to digest the reality that it’s not possible for my husband to be biologically related to our children. We needed time to choose our donor. We needed time to process. We needed time to heal. The process took a lot longer than I expected, and definitely longer than I wanted it to take if we are being honest, but it was necessary. We are a team and, if anything, this process has really solidified that. We are so much stronger because of this journey and, despite how hard it has been and will be in the future, we will get through it.
Some herbal remedies have been found to aid in male fertility. Maca is renowned for increasing sperm count because it contains elements such as calcium, B vitamins and zinc, which are essential for sperm production. 🏊♂🏊♂🏊♂ . . . . . #macaroot #macarootpowder #herbalremedies #herbalremedy #infertility #ttc #ivf #fertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #ttccommunity #infertilityjourney #fertilitytips #ttcsisters #fertilityjourney #ttcjourney #pcos #infertilitysupport #infertilitycommunity #ttcsupport #fertilitycommunity #eggdonation #eggdonor #infertilitywarrior #fertilityfriend #secondaryinfertility #infertilitysisters #thisiswhatinfertilitylookslike

During the last few days spent in Greece I looked up at the stars so many times. Maybe it's just my imagination but I have the feeling that you are somewhere in the universe. I don't know where you are, I don't know how to reach you. But I believe from the bottom of my heart the your presence is real. I am sure you are the brightest star in the sky tonight. ~ In questi giorni passati in Grecia mi sono soffermata tante volte a guardare il cielo. Scuro, sereno e limpido. Da qui riesco a vedere tante stelle, tutte quelle che lassu in Scozia non riesco mai a vedere per via delle nubi perenni. Ho sempre amato le sere d'estate proprio per questo. Perdere lo sguardo tra le stelle quasi a voler cercare qualcosa perso nell'universo. Mi piace pensare che una di queste stelle sia tu. Mi piace pensarti libero nell'universo, parte dell'infinito. Un luminoso puntino pieno di vita che al cielo è troppo caro per poterlo mandare sulla terra. Forse lavoro troppo di immaginazione o forse sono un po folle ma mentre il vento mi sfiora i capelli lo sento, tu ci sei. #infertilityblogger #infertilitysupport #infertilità #infertilitydiary #infertilitydiary #ivfcommunity #hope #infertilityhurts #myjourneytoyou #mystory #borntobeyourwarrior #infertilityjourney #ttc #ttccommunity #mydream #iwillfightforyou #motherlove #pray #youaremystar #shineinthedark #toughts
Woman of Steel 💪🏽 I may be 5’1” & 105lbs but I’m one strong ass woman! Strength comes in many forms; mentally is one... a major one, especially when you’re dealing with infertility. To all my fellow #TTCsisters I stand with you in strength ♥️ And even though this journey sucks, don’t forget to have fun along the way and capture those happy moments 🙂 My husband and I had a much needed night of fun away from all the BS at the @plattbiergarten 🍻 Thank you for adding a happy moment to my journey! ___ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #superwoman #superwomen #superhero #superherotshirt #igstyle #stylish #stylishlook #styleblogger #instafashion #ootd #whatiwore #streetstyle #realoutfitgram #fashionblogger #nycfashionblog #nycfashionblogger #nycblogger #longislandblogger #fashionbloggerstyleblogger #mostlymaple

Forever when our baby was so new in our hearts. ✨ Woah! Thanks for all the love and support on our announcement the past few days. I've had so many people reach out to me about our fertility struggles and I promise I'lll answer all your questions when I can.. I never imagined so many people would be interested in our journey, but it really shows just how not alone we are and how common this all is! Which is why I so strongly believe it should be talked about more often. This picture is so special to me. We had only found out about babes a few days before this wedding and I can see the excitement and love in our faces. Brett has always been an incredibly giving partner, but I can tell that going to get me Jimmy Johns pickles at 9:45 PM is his absolute favorite thing to do. He came home with 3 pickles, a full jar of them (who knew you could buy those?!) all with a smile on his face. He's been waiting for these requests 😉
Up. Down. Weeeee.
•CD 40• I hope this isn’t a sensitive post, I am still new to this community here on IG. I apologize in advance if it is. Does anyone else have a negative test collection? I’m not really sure how it started. At first I didn’t have a reason to keep them, but now that it’s been so long I keep them because when we do have our next baby (and it’s WHEN not IF) I want these to be in a box to show them how hard and how long we tried for them. These are years of disappointments that eventually turned into the greatest joy in this life. Hopefully not much longer. I’ll need a bigger box 😅. • • • • • #ttccommunity #infertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitycommunity #provera #femara #letrozole #ttc #tryingtoconceive #2yearsttc #infertile #pcos #pcos #pcossupport #cysters #cyster #cysterhood #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #militaryspouse #pregnancytest
There’s fear and love. It’s so easy to get pulled into fear and away from love when we are not grounded in ourselves. I recommend starting every day with 5 minutes of meditation to nourish your mind and to anchor into your truth. It’s as easy as creating a calm space without distraction, focusing on your breath, and choosing to acknowledge that you are not your thoughts. Letting your thoughts flow and putting yourself in the position of observer gives you freedom. When we feel free, hope and possibility comes flooding in. This practice WILL change your life. Xo, Erin Slow down. Calm down. Don’t worry. Don’t hurry. TRUST the process.” - Alexandra Stoddard

January 7, 2018 Dear Birth Control, Damn, I never thought I’d see you again... . In order for my doctor to take full control of the timing of my cycle I started taking birth control, and would be taking it for the next 5 weeks.

November 29, 2017 - IVF consult . We had been postponing this appointment for months to say the least. We weren’t ready to admit that IVF was the treatment we needed. We kept hoping and praying for an easier answer, but it just became so exhausting. . In our area we are pretty limited when it comes to infertility specialists. Since I planned to work throughout the process, a long commute was out of the questions for us. . We went into the appointment feeling prepared, and knowing that we would more than likely be starting our IVF journey soon after. We didn’t get a very warm or sympathetic feeling from him, things were just matter of fact. Knowing that he is very good at what he does, and that he has the numbers to back up his success we were willing to put aside his poor bedside manner. He answered all our questions, reviewed the process and gave us a 70% chance of getting pregnant with our first round of IVF. . We planned to proceed with IVF at the start of the new year. 💛🍍 . . . #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #infertilityawareness #ivfsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #1in8 #ivfcommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcwithinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitycommunity
At this point in our journey (September 2017 through November 2017) we were injecting 150iu of Gonal-f CD 8-11 with ultrasound CD11 or 12 to check follicles and lining. 💉 . . . #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #infertilityawareness #ivfsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #1in8 #ivfcommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcwithinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitycommunity #ivfmeds
After 6 consecutive months on Femara and 2 years total TTC we made a switch in meds. I started a combination of Clomid, Estradiol and FSH injections. I was also being seen for an ultrasound CD 11 or 12 to check follicle size and lining before ovulation. . I was pretty convinced that this would work for us. I had such a good feeling about it, but each month when I would go in for my ultrasound I always left so disappointed... • Lining to thin • Follicles to small . We continued this for 3 months before we finally decided it was time to schedule our first IVF consult. . . . #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #infertilityawareness #ivfsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #1in8 #ivfcommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcwithinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitycommunity
HSG findings: Prompt filling of the intrauterine cavity. There is no fixed intrinsic abnormalities in the intrauterine cavity. There is prompt filling of both fallopian tubes which are symmetric in size. There is immediate free spillage on the right. On the left there was gradual spillage.

March 2017, headed to our first specialist appointment with a RE. . 2 cycles on Femara and 1.5yrs of trying I would have given just about anything to have some answers. I cried the whole way home, frustrated that this had become our life. I just didn’t understand it. . The specialist we saw was great and very knowledgeable. He was pretty convinced the issues we’d been having were a result of the quality of my eggs. My cycles were regular and I was ovulating BUT the egg on its own was not viable. I was devastated and felt so defeated 💔 . . . #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #infertilityawareness #ivfsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #1in8 #ivfcommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcwithinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitycommunity
We all have a sense of humor right 🤣😂🤣 Infertility can be so sad and serious, we all could use a good laugh every once in awhile. . January 2017, Sperm Analysis #1 ✔️ . RESULTS: Sperm count and sperm motility checked out good. There was a slightly lower percentage of sperm appearing normal in both size and shape than what is considered optimal (morphology). However, my doctor did not feel like these morphology results were problematic enough to be contributing to our struggles. .

September 2016 after one full year of trying I had my first Hysteroscopy. With the abnormal spotting I was having, my doctor thought that I may have a polyp that could be contributing to our fertility struggles. . RESULTS: no polyp.

Waiting is the hardest part. As each month passes by we felt farther and farther away from our desired outcome. I was becoming so frustrated that with all the efforts we were implementing, still NO success. I began questioning everything in our lives trying to rule out what could be causing the trouble. . Infertility completely consumed my life. I was no longer the wife, daughter, sister or friend I once was. I began isolating myself because I no longer had the energy to hide the pain. When you want something so bad it’s hard not to think of it constantly, and I just couldn’t stop. . . . #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #infertilityawareness #ivfsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #1in8 #ivfcommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcwithinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitycommunity
Struggling with infertility has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with. It pains me at times to think how differently our lives would be if we would have gotten pregnant within the first few months of trying. Changing my mindset to trust this journey has been so incredibly difficult, but I know there is something big in store for us soon. 💛💛💛💛💛 . . . #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #infertilityawareness #ivfsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #1in8 #ivfcommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcwithinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitycommunity
After 8 months of trying I really began to worry that something was wrong. My cycles were regular; however, each month I was having a week of spotting before AF arrived. Having been on the pill for so long before TTC I remember thinking that maybe this was what a normal cycle was like. I started looking into things and began to panic. My biggest worries and fears were becoming my reality. I immediately made an appointment with my doctor; she agreed to ordered some labs to check into my hormone levels as well as an ultrasound to check my ovaries and uterus. . Everything came back normal. Selfishly, I wanted something to be wrong at this point so we couldn’t have some answers. There wasn’t much more my doctor was willing to do for us at this time since we hadn’t yet been trying for a full year. She recommended we continue trying as we had been and revisit the issue after one full year of trying. I broke, I knew in my gut there was something wrong but we continued trying only to receive the same crushing results each month. 💔 . I purchased a few books with the hopes of learning some new information about fertility and my cycle. ANYTHING to help me better understand why things weren’t happening for us like I’d pictured. Never could I have imagined the emotional rollercoaster we’d soon be on. . . . #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #infertilityawareness #ivfsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #1in8 #ivfcommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcwithinfertility #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitycommunity
Hi guys! 👋🏼 Welcome to Wife Goes On Instagram account. My name is Jessica and I’m so glad you’re here! . My husband Phil and I have been struggling with infertility for 3 years and our hopes for starting a family continue. At this point I’ve had 2 surgical procedures (9/2015, 2/2018), 1 sperm analyst (1/2017), 6 months on Femara (2/2017-8/2017), 3 months on a combination of Clomid, Estradiol and FSH injections (9/2017-11/2017) and have had 1 failed IVF cycle (3/2018). It’s hard to even put into words the amount of pain and frustration we have experienced these past 3 years. I decided to share our story so that couples going though this or about to go though this know that they are not alone. I hope to inspire, and help those struggling get through this incredibly emotional journey. .
