J.S. = Tried at least 3 years to conceive with various low tech fertility treatments (i.e. inseminations, drugs etc.)then adopted an 8 year old boy. Had some endometriosis removed, conceived naturally in her upper 30's had a son, then conceived naturally again a year later, had a daughter.
M.S. = Had male factor infertility and she had surgery to remove strange tissue around ovaries. Got pregnant with ICSI and IVF, now has a daughter
M.R. = Had PCOS, conceived first try IVF, now has a daughter
S.C. = Unexplained infertility, has two children through IVF.
There were many others that I know succeeded both naturally and with fertility treatments, but I've lost touch with them. The moral of the story? There's always hope. Everyone of these people succeeded despite feeling like they NEVER would. Even though I'm an advocate of getting pregnant with natural means, I do understand that depending on your diagnosis, fertility treatments may be necessary. But no matter whether or not you go the high tech. route, there are many people out there who were labeled "long shots" by the medical community (including me) and succeeding in giving birth. It could happen to you too.
