I have diminished ovarian reserve .I have had 5 ectopic pregnancies and have been deemed not safe to try naturally .I have no time to waste and need ivf to have a family and am approaching early menopause as I’m in my mid 30’s. Please let treatments proceed!
This impacts my life - I'm Scheduled to have IUI this month (April). I'm 42. I can't wait any longer. I've spend thousands of dollars these last 3 months preparing my mind and body for this procedure. My donor sperm arrived at the treatment center today. Now I am being told I can't proceed until further notice. I can't take possession of my sperm for at-home insemination either. I can't wait until Fall when I am 43 as this increases my chances of birth defects dramatically. This isn't a decision that is made in a day - it's years or months of planning & preparation. It's not fair. It's not right. It's NOT ELECTIVE.
My fertility treatments were put on hold; we spent the last four months simply going through our initial testing to establish the "why" behind our recurrent miscarriage and inability to conceive now 9 months later. We had our telephone appointment with our fertility doctor last Monday, and were told that all treatments (even home treatments, like being prescribed Clomid to attempt to regulate my cycle and cause ovulation) were on pause until further notice. This fertility journey has already been discouraging enough; I do not get the joy and jokes that people make about a "corona-baby boom" 9 months from now. I am heartbroken that I am not able to move forward with treatments, while other couples and women get pregnant without a thought.
I’ve already been infertile for 3 years, on IVF waitlist for 2 years, we have balanced translocation and so our only way to have a child is through IVF. We cannot conceive at home. I was supposed to start stims on April 15th and was cancelled with an indefinite shut down of all IVF. I feel neutered.
