I have always known I would struggle having children. In fact, I told my husband before we got married that it was likely to be a problem, but of course that didn't deter him!
Infertility is a long journey; it has felt like we have been dealing with it forever. We have been married 10 years and have been trying to start our family for 9 of those years.
The initial doctor at the clinic diagnosed me with PCOS and told me to keep trying clomid. “You’re young” he said to me multiple times. I felt like he was brushing me off because even though I was young – it wasn’t working!
I’ve hesitated to share our story because it doesn’t have the typical happy ending, but I’m sharing because that’s just a part of the infertility reality.
