So many women struggle for years trying to conceive a baby, the thing they want more than life itself...
I met my life partner in 2009. I was 21 I was ready to settle down and have a child if and whenever it happened (happens). I never charted from when my monthly cycle was to when I ovulated. I don't get ovulation pains like some women do. Unless I chart with OPK's (Ovulation Predictor Kits) which detect a LH Surge (Kinda like a HPT but a different hormone). It has been a mental struggle, because it has several times forced me to think heck, I can't get pregnant. My husband and I then talked to our regular doctor (family doctor) and she asked me a bunch of questions then she referred us to a gynecologist. There I would undergo several tests, several different ultrasounds, in and out, a lot of trips and a lot of water to be drank (LOL) not kidding those things require a lot, oh and if you're going for a long trip hopefully the road isn't bumpy LITERALLY.
She then required my partner to do a sperm test which we didn't get accurate results because we couldn't hold off. One test I had my first pap-smear ever they found an infection that caused "infertility" if left untreated both I and my partner had to take some medication which was NOT covered by my insurance, thankfully it wasn't overly expensive. She also had put me on a prescribed prenatal because he and I are trying to have a baby. Fast forward. Awhile later. I was feeling sick to my stomach and a bit of heartburn, I had dinner out one night with my family and I had something new and my stomach got upset so I didn't think anything of it and didn't suspect that I would be pregnant at this time. A few weeks later I didn't do any test I just knew and I suspected at this time that I was. I had really bad cramping down in my uterus area (pelvic area) and it took my breath away.
This was about 4 years ago or so now. I have wanted to go to another specialist, I got referred to one because the gyno was just too far away since then I had moved!. My partner and I decided the fee that they were charging was crazy and since they didn't say what exactly it was all for $175 was just a bit much so I had cancelled my appointment.
I came across a post from someone, they were younger than I. I am 30, ready to handle a baby at any time if I can fall pregnant again, they had unprotected sex with a girl and they ended up getting her pregnant, at least as the story goes. But they discussed abortion... I am highly against it unless some reasons as stands which are personal.
This upset me because people like me, have struggled. It has been 9 years and so many heartaches seeing negative pregnancy tests. I am broken. I want a baby and this kills me seeing a post about an abortion or hearing about it...
How dare you?
