"After 22 years of trying, I became a mother thanks to artificial insemination"

Artificial Insemination is an assisted reproductive technique that has allowed many couples and single women to fulfill their dream of having a baby. 

In recent years, this technique has become popular and has proven to be an effective alternative for those who have difficulties conceiving naturally.

According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), infertility affects around 15% of couples of reproductive age worldwide. In many cases, artificial insemination can be an effective and accessible solution for these couples.

Artificial insemination involves depositing sperm directly into the uterus, increasing the chances that one of them will fertilize the egg. According to a study by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the success rate of artificial insemination varies between 10% and 20%, depending on factors such as the age and reproductive health of the couple or woman.

In addition, artificial insemination has several advantages compared to other Assisted Reproductive Techniques. It is a simpler procedure, less invasive, and has fewer side effects.

If you want to know more about this procedure, get to know the story of Elvia, who, after undergoing artificial insemination treatment, was able to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother.

"Years passed and nothing happened” 

“I spent 22 years trying to become a mother. My husband had varicocele, underwent two surgeries, and they said that was the problem and that I could undoubtedly get pregnant, but years passed and nothing happened.

My sister had her baby and she told her doctor about my problem. I went to see the doctor, and she said I needed a scraping to analyze the tissue since I had a history of cancer. 

I had outpatient surgery, and then she recommended me to a doctor at the institute, who was her friend. From the first consultation, he told me what the problem was: I had a fibroid that was blocking the circulation of sperm, fluid, and everything. 

In 2017, I had another surgery, and we started treatment. We spent a lot of time traveling from Tabasco to Mexico City, it was very tough, we needed a lot of care, and we were very stressed.

"When they implant those babies, it's the most wonderful thing”

After that, I had the first artificial insemination, but it didn't work. On February 5th, 2018, I had a second artificial insemination with three embryos, and I will never forget it. When you get pregnant naturally, you don't see that magical moment when they implant those babies. It's the most wonderful thing.

On February 14th, I had to take a pregnancy test, but due to my age, we had to travel back to the city to have an ultrasound and make sure everything was okay. That's when we heard the heartbeat. They had granted me the miracle of being a mother!

"How is it possible that she was inside of me, and now she's here in my arms?"

The day she was born, they gave me anesthesia, and I was very scared, but my husband was there and made me feel safe. When I saw her when they brought her to me... I will never forget when I finally saw her little face and heard her cry. I thought, "How is it possible that she was inside of me, and now she's here in my arms?" These are such wonderful moments that will never be erased from my memory.

Mia Sarahí turned 2 years old. It completely changes your life. You have a different rhythm of life, outings with your partner... many things had to change, everything is turned upside down, you see toys everywhere, and you get tired, but it is an immense satisfaction to have your baby after 22 years. It's a love so great that it cannot be understood."

"Never lose faith, hold onto the next attempt"

To other women going through the same thing, I would say to take extreme care. If it's necessary to stay in bed all day, do it, never lose faith, and hold onto the next attempt.

We will tell Mia that she was a very desired girl, that we searched for her for a long time, that she was in heaven and some angels helped us bring her down, that she was in a little jar, and that I saw her on a screen.

I will tell her everything, just as it happened because it was wonderful because it illuminated our home and managed to fill my life completely."
