What's your fertility problem?

I know there a lot of women on here struggling with infertility. I just wondered, what are your fertility issues? What kind of treatment are/have you had? I don't know anyone in real life who has had fertility issues!

Mine is Asherman's Syndrome. Basically scarring/adhesions in the uterus that prevent eggs being able to implant or remain implanted, causing infertility and/or recurrent miscarriages. It can also cause endo due to backflow of periods in the case of scarring in the cervix. There is treatment available but it's so specialist that having it done on the NHS can actually make it worse so it needs to be done privately and even after spending all that money, there are no guarantees. The difference between AS and other fertility issues involving tubes/ovaries is that you only have one uterus and if it's not good enough to support a pregnancy then there's no back up! It also means IVF cannot be an option, you can't grow a baby without a uterus.

I'm interested to see what your issues are and how you remain positive every cycle that you don't fall pregnant

Hi Bubblegum, sorry to hear about your condition. You may find the infertility boards better in terms of like-minded people with similar issues.

Most people on this board are starting out on their TTC journeys and don't necessarily have an particular issue.

Saying that, everyone seems very friendly and although I don't have a diagnosed issue I have irregular cycles and have been trying for nearly a year.

Best of luck smile
