Our Story ❤

Hello ladies! My name is Karlie! My husband and I have been ttc for 1 1/2 years. We are both in our 20s and healthy so we couldnt understand why it wasnt happening for us! We decided to seek help after 1 year. We started with my regular OBGYN. Without hesitation he immediately prescribed Clomid before any type of a diagnosis was even done. I was on Clomid for 4 months, gradually increasing my dosage with each cycle by 50 mg. It wasn't until 3 months of trying with Clomid that I got an HSG test done. Come to find out, my right fallopian tube is blocked making it extra difficult to conceive naturally. At this point my husband and I decided it was time to move on to a fertility specialist. We had a difficult  time finding any fertility doctors in the area. The closet ones with any sort of reputation were a minimum of two hours from where we live. We heard about how wonderful Dr. Cekleniak at IRMS was from a friend and decided to book an appointment! Mind you we live in PA and IRMS is in NJ, so we drive a minimum of 2 hours each way for testing and treatments. I am now currently a patient of Dr Cekleniak and am undergoing my 1st <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IVF</a> cycle! Upon our initial visit and exam with her it was decided that <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a> or <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IVF</a> was the best course of treatment. Dr Cekleniak highly recommended if we were able, to go with <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IVF</a> due to less risks and higher success rates, although ultimately she made it our choice. My husband and I decided we wanted to do <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IVF</a>! I started taking Lupron (10 units) on October 12th. After 10 days of Lupron I was advised to add in Follistim AQ (225 units) and Menopur (75IU) to my daily medications, while reducing my Lupron (5 units). I am currently on day 8 in my cycle. I go in for ultrasound and bloodwork today, so I will post any updates regarding my levels, follicles, and uterine lining as soon as I have them! I would LOVE TO hear everyone else's stories and experiences! ❤
