Before turning to IUI pregnancy, I was just like other women out there who felt helpless when they learned they had a problem with conceiving. I believed that getting pregnant is considered a gift for couples who have been trying to achieve such goal for a long time after marriage.
I’ve heard a lot of stories about couples who have been unfortunate when it comes to having a child. I thought these were stories I would only hear from friends and relatives. Little did I know that my husband and I would be experiencing the same. I felt so emotional when the possibility of not conceiving a child struck me. Just imagine how it was to think of raising your own children but being told that I had a problem with getting pregnant.
It was an uphill climb for both of us. I looked back and tried to see what when wrong. I must admit that I didn’t see an OG for my irregular menstrual. I thought it was not a big deal. I was too confident about myself. I know for certain that motherhood is right in the corner. But after trying to get pregnant for a year, I got frustrated and hopeless. That’s the time when my husband and I decided to see a gynae. But my husband had to persistently convince me to get help from the specialist. I was still in the state of denial during that time. Eventually, I felt the need to heed my husband’s advice. We did ask for help from gynae.
I knew when I did this that I should not expect too much from it. I tried to prepare myself for the worst. It’s not that I was completely hopeless but it just didn’t sink in right away. Our experience with our OG was a difficult one, too. I had to be tested for several times. As a matter of fact, I didn’t know what to get from these tests. The doctor said she had to find out why I wasn’t able to get pregnant. The sperm count of my husband was also examined. I felt we were place under a microscope. It felt awkward.
