On the contrary to popular belief, for us it took three years and two fresh IVF-ICSI cycles to create our little miracle who was born on August 13, 2010.

Today I spoke with Caremark, our specialty drug pharmacy, to confirm that they received the called-in-prescription from my doctor's office. I went over the order with the pharmacist to make sure they had the same information my doctor had given me. Everything matched up and she informed me that my package will ship late next week. The drug cost is more this time around, but we expected that since we knew our doctor was changing up the drug combinations for this round of IVF. He believes that the different drugs will give us a much better outcome this time....here's to hoping!!!

Visit RE: After hydrosonogram, HSG, BW & multiple SA we are diagnosed severe MFI. DH had Varicocelectomy and it turned out to be unsuccessful in raising counts, motility or morphology. All three remained very low and abonormal. IVF-ICSI our only option.
Started TTC - month after month BFNs. Very regular periods so we begin to wonder what's up.
