Women with polycystic ovary disease can have children, with the help of a specific assisted reproduction treatment, based on a thorough assessment of their reproductive health and previous attempts.
Claudia tells you her story here, about the infertility problems she and her husband went through, and how they finally managed to conceive their son Matías, thanks to In Vitro Fertilization, after searching for him for more than 5 years.
"We were looking for a baby for 5 years and nothing was happening. We ended up going to several gynaecologists and fertility clinics because nowhere would give us any assurances. One of them told us that artificial insemination was a good idea, although we didn't feel very comfortable when they told us about it, because they also said there was no guarantee that it would work. Why then?
A friend recommended me to come here and we had several tests done. They said thatmy husband had low sperm motility (asthenozoospermia) and I had polycystic ovary syndrome. They also confirmed that artificial insemination was not a very viable option for us, because of all this.
They explained to us that, with a treatment of several IVF cycles, we would have a better chance, practically all with 96%, and we even had the option of having a notary public guarantee for the return of all the money if we didn't make it, that made all the difference.
Since we started our treatment I started to notice a lot of changes in me, physically and emotionally. My mood is not the same at all, I felt very tired, swollen and even my skin felt different. It's not easy to go through all that, but in the end, knowing why you are doing it, it moves you.
Discipline is essential so that one can do everything to the letter, that injections and medicines are always given at the same time.
The truth is, I can tell you, everything went the way we wanted it to! On our first attempt I had 3 embryos placed, and I got pregnant! The day the doctor gave me the news was an indescribable moment, we were going to be parents of a boy!
Here I was told that women with polycystic ovary disease can have children, we can live with this disease and achieve the family we want so much, even we who also had another factor with my husband's low sperm motility. They told me, but I didn't quite believe it until I finally saw my positive
My pregnancy was not complicated at all, I was able to sleep super well, I did everything, only after the first two months I had a lot of nausea, but other than that, everything was perfect.
Watching the birth of my baby was a simply magical moment, there is no other word to describe it. The day he was born, I had to be scheduled for a caesarean section because Matías got tangled in the umbilical cord and needed to be removed as soon as possible.
In the operating theatre everything went very quickly, in minutes he was out. When he was born, I could immediately see his little eyes and his beautiful face because they brought him close to me, at last what I had dreamed of for so long was coming true!
He hugs me all the time, my Mati is very affectionate, he is the most wanted child in the world! We were looking forward to him, and we love him very much.
My husband and I have talked about it and we plan to tell you everything we went through, everything about our Assisted Reproduction treatment and everything we went through to bring him here, our whole story. I never imagined having to go through this to be able to have my baby, but it was worth every minute, I love watching him grow up! Without a doubt, he is the best gift life could have given me."
