I am having an extremely hard time coping with the fact that i am infertile. I found out when I was 17 and I figured I would be not as emotional as I am. Everytime I go to my Doctor''s and bring it up, I get very upset. I don''t know if anyone has any suggestions...I have seen a counsellor when I was 18...that was merely a bandaid. I''ve also written down my thoughts and it didn''t help either, I am currently seeing 4 doctors in regards to this issue, a neurologist, my GP, gyno, endocrinologist, i am seeing the neurologist because when I began treatment for my condition Premature Ovarian Failure, I began having complex partial seizures, and took dilantin for 4 years, I am now just starting on Lamictal so it doesn''t react with all of the estrogen I am on. I was wondering as well if there was any chance that I could ever get pregnant with POF. Thanks
Well i have a sister that thought she couldn't get pregnant also, it took her a long time, but GOD has given her a daughter, and she is now 11 years old.
She is my fav niece, and i nor anyone else in my family could imagine what it would be like if GOD would have not blessed my sister with her, the only thing that we have to look out for with her is, that she is a prankster, she jokes and plays practical joke all the time.
I'm sure when the time is right, GOD will give you children also.
I also know someone that i''ve grown up with, and they said she couldn't have children, but she has a son now, and i'm pretty sure she was pregnant again.
So pray to GOD, i know it sounds stupid but it's the only way, and keep seeing your doctors also.
ive actually lost a lot of hope in god, simply because why would he let people like drug addicts and killers get pregnant but take the ability away from a good person, this whole thing has affected me physically, emotionally, and spiritually. ive heard of people getting pregnant with my condition its just around 10% of the people that have POF get a spontaneous ovulation and get lucky enough to get pregnant
Im 22. I know what you feel, and I always ask that same question. Why would GOD grant someone a precious life when they dont even take care of or cherish the own life GOD has already given them? Theres so much debate on why that is...however nothing we can control. All us young hopeful women can do is never give up...and have faith. One of my friends was told she was infertile, which devasted her more then anything...thats all she ever wanted to do with her life. She never gave up. Now she has a beautiful 2 yr old son that she thanks GOD for everyday. They are my inspiration that there is hope. Just dont give up, and stay strong.
i try to have a positive attitude, and not let any of my sadness...maybe even depression show through...i put on a face everyday...i try and be the person i feel i'd like to be but...most days i just smile to keep everyone else happy, lately its been harder and harder
I was diagnosed at 18 with POF, and cried everytime I had to see a Dr. and get yet another pap smear. When I was married at 24, I earnestly hoped and prayed that I would get pregnant. My husband and I had to mourn the children we could not give birth to. We have been blessed to adopt 3 children. They are now 16,14, and 11. All are very healthy, do well in school and all around great kids. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I am now 45. I still get emotional after I have a pap smear because the pain is still so very deep down inside, yet the desire to give birth is totally gone. Keep talking to someone if you need to, but most of all... take care of yourself, keep on the hormones and remember that just because you can't give birth, does NOT mean you can not be a mother. Lynn
hi there every one. well my story may be a long one. but i will try and break it down. well recently me and my son dad was discussing about having more children. this was last year ending of 2009. so last year i had my 3 year implant removed october 2009. i already have an 18 year old son from him. so we just wanted to have few more children. anyway i got to find out that once i took the 3 year implant out after 6 months i still don't see a period. and so i go and see my gp. he asked me to go to have a hormone blood test done. the results came back as no stimulations in ovaries:(. and so i became worried coz i really wanted to have few more children. and so the doctor sent me for a scan on my ovaries and another blood test for the hormons. then he referred me to the woman health clinic at the hospital. ok the scan results came back saying that my ovaries is normal all is normal. but when the second blood test come back for the hormones that still saying. no stimulations in ovaries. ok i then go to see the consultant at the woman health clinic this year june 9th. i told her my problems how me and my son dad trying to have more children so on. then the consultant tell me i have premature ovarian failer . i became so much upset:(. i had to ask the doctor if there is any think else i can do for me to have more chidren. the doctor told me only ivf or donor eggs. this was the first time i actually cried in front of a consultant at a hospital. i broke down crying. so i walked out and came home. so that was my story. i then heard that i can get pregnant whilst having premature ovarien failer but only slim chance. i am finding this hard to take in. i do try and live my life each day. do all my duties with a smile on my face. being happy with other people. trying to hide it all. but deep down i am sad and upset. so what else can i do:(. but i am glad i have a son but i would of been even more happy if i gave my son a brother or sister. is that still possible.
