Can I benefit from IVF to have a second child?

Can I benefit from IVF to have a second child?

  1. syndicate

    Let me start by introducing myself. I am a mother of a boy of 8 years, and I have been in a marriage for 11 years. I conceived our only child two years after our marriage. Since then conceiving has proved to be difficult. We have visited several clinics, and the results showed that my husband is okay. Further tests revealed that I am not able to conceive because of scarred womb. Our doctor told me that the process could be reversed by treatment or surgery. We opted for treatment, and I was put on Serrapeptase therapy. I have been on this therapy for the past six months, and nothing seems to be working for us. Which is why I am seeking help from anyone who has experienced the same. I have also decided to go for In Vitro fertilization. I am reliably told that the procedure increases chances of conceiving. The problem is I have no idea where I can get this service either in Brazil or in any other country that offers it. Also, I would be happy if someone can explain to me the procedure, the requirements and how long it takes. Also, advise me on the average cost of the procedure.

  3. Hi,

    I have gone through IVF cycles. The first cycle didn’t work so I decided to go for the second. It’ve been through four cycles but I didn’t get the results that I am looking for.

    I hope it works for you.

  4. Hi, Rose. I can feel with your problem. I have the same problem like you. 10 years ago, I was married from someone and he didn’t want me to be pregnant. So, I take contraceptive drugs, for 4 years. Then we separated and I stopped that drug. My period was irregular for 2 years. After that, I married from lovely husband and we want to have a baby. I still trying to conceive for 3 years but without result. I did more blood tests and I found that I had more problems. Now we think about IVF treatment we have to know where I can get the best service. Also, advise me on the average cost of the procedure. Any help will be appreciated.

    • I’m so sorry you’ve endured so much. God love u poor thing. I’m not sure I can name the clinic i’ve had experience with. but got only positive experience. Here’s what you should expect with any clinic on your list. This is a list of questions to ask during your first visit. This one-on-one time with your specialist is an important opportunity to get answers and set your mind at ease.
      Fertility evaluation: What specific tests would you recommend to diagnose my infertility? How much do they cost? This is important information for you to bring back to your insurance company.
      Diagnosis:How long will it take to diagnose our issues? Every case is different, and your physician may not have an exact answer, but they may be able to give you some idea of the timeline.
      Treatment: Based on the results of those tests, what are my treatment options? What is the national success rate for those treatments in terms of live births? What are this clinic’s success rates? What are the side effects and risks of these treatments?
      About the clinic: Does your clinic provide emotional counseling, or can you refer me to a counselor who deals with fertility problems? What role does your nursing staff play in patient treatment and contact? Where will the testing/procedures take place? On site or at a separate facility? How many patients do you see who are in my age group? How many have my fertility problem? What are the live-birth success rates for my age group and with my treatment options? How is communication handled at the clinic? What are the office hours and what number should I call with problems or questions? Is there an out-of-hours emergency line?
      Tests administered. Multiple tests are a regular part of fertility treatment, allowing your team to monitor progress throughout the process. At this first consultation, the tests are to help diagnose your fertility issues, establish a baseline for future tests, and to screen out any problems that could interfere with fertility treatments. At your first visit, you are likely to encounter the following tests.
      For women: Ultrasound to assess ovaries. Standard blood tests (to check for individual hormone levels) such as: FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone), TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), PRL (prolactin).
      For men: Sperm sample. Infectious disease panel before IUI (intrauterine insemination) or IVF (in vitro fertilization).
