  2. Hi Carissa and Brian! I just came across your video because I am trying to do my research on IVF. My husband and I have been trying for several years with "unexplained infertility" as our diagnosis. We had three failed IUI's and decided to take a break, that was 7 months ago. At the end of this month, we are going to talk about our next steps which will likely be IVF. Any suggestions on how on earth to afford IVF? It is absolutely outrageous! Also, we live in St. Joe which is only 30 minutes from KC! So heeyy neighbor! πŸ™‚

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with you! We are all here for you! Lots of love πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

  11. Such a great video. Your doctor seems so nice, reminds me a lot of our fertility doc here in Canada. We too start our second round of IVF in August and watching this made me tear up, knowing the journey we are both about to embark on. I cannot wait to see more update videos and journey along side with you. Sending you lots of love and will be keeping you in my thoughts.

  12. Yeeey Carissa, welcome to the IVF journey. You will probably need to take fertility drugs to stimulate your ovaries to develop mature eggs ready for fertilization. During your normal menstrual cycle you release one egg per month. Your odds of getting pregnant are better with more eggs and using fertility drugs increases the number of mature eggs that are released. It's recommended that IVF be offered with fertility drugs to stimulate your ovaries as you have a better chance of pregnancy as a result. This is called down-regulation and in the UK usually involves drugs called gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogues (pituitary agonists) to suppress or stop your cycle. You take these daily for about two weeks by tablet or injection. Other shorter methods of taking control are available. Some involve the use of GnRH antagonists. I have also been through the journey at Bio tex, so I understand what am talking about. These drugs can be taken over a few days, usually after pre-treatment with the contraception pill and at the start of ovulation stimulation. This method is not common in the UK but is suitable for women who are at higher risk of severe side effects of fertility drugs.

  13. Hi Carissa,

    Its me the acupuncturist/doctor in training, Im currently studying clinical medicine in China, however Im also taking acupuncture courses in this really awesome treatment center/resort in central China in the province of Hunan, which is a beautiful place by the way few people lots of mountains and greenery blue skies, and BUGS! lol, anyways I really really wanna recommend this center to you as a vacation and a way to to treat the dang "cold uterus"symptoms many women including myself suffer from, which causes all the gynecological issues we women face including infertility, endometriosis, fibroids, bad periods you name it. Heres the catch: it costs only $36 dollars per each acupuncture treatment (also you can ask for short massage and pasting of medicinal powder on uterus, throw in a cupping if youre lucky? lol), they come to your room and do it for you (each room has a massage bed), and you can live here as long as it takes to get you fixed, heres the other catch: theyve treated very tough diseases such as cancer and paralysis and uterine cancer etc. so you will be in very very good hands!! Please stop crying it hurts to see such an amazing woman so sad, every night outside the center a group of middle aged Chinese women gather and play loud beats and dance a choreographed dance in skirts, its soo much fun!! Maybe you need a break from the familiar environment, the "Western medicine", all the depressing energy etc etc. btw accomodation costs around $600-$800/month. If I were you I would take a break from all the Western medicine and everything, save up some cash and come to a place like this in China where treating infertility is a piece of cake, also they can strengthen your husbands system as well. LET ME KNOW IF THIS SOUNDS GOOD I WILL FORWARD YOU THE LINK!!

  14. It’s really good to see you so excited about the baby.I had my two children through surrogacy. I went to Biotexcom clinic. I had wonderful experience there. Nothing is compared to the happiness and peace you going to get when you’ll hold your baby first time.

  16. Surrogacy is very closer to the natural pregnancy. I have read many positive reviews about Biotexcom clinic in Europe. I also had surrogacy treatment from there. It totally changed her life. It was such an amazing experience. Surrogacy has blessed many infertile needy couples.Wishing you good luck.

  17. I've been a patient at CNY for almost 3 years now and I have never seen the goings on behind the curtain. After 5 IUIs and 6 chemicals, we are finally doing IVF next month! I really hope it works out for you two next time, you seem like pretty amazing people. 😚

  18. IVF has a very high success rate for women with PCOS. Unfortunately for me, IVF failed. I opted for surrogacy from Biotexcom clinic in Ukraine afterwards since Ukraine is home to some of the best clinics. I am glad to tell you that I am now a mother of a beautiful baby girl. Keep trying you will also get through it.

  19. I am new to your channel. I have heard it is very popular a friend of mince shared your channel with me. As she knows i am also looking for surrogacy. I was infertile naturally. Doctors can tell the reason behind my infertility. Surrogacy is the method for having a baby for us. A friend of mine told about it and we have decided to go for it. Bulgaria doesn't allow any surrogacy. So we have to move to some other country for surrogacy.we are thinking to join BioTexCom clinic.
