    Story

    Hi everyone,

    Unfortunately our IVF back in May was unsuccessful. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to try and create a family of our own. We may never know what caused the treatment to fail but the doctors are fairly sure it was down to my very low ovarian reserve, or AMH, of 2.4. This was the reason we did not qualify for NHS funding the first time.

    We got as far as embryo transfer, which was a lovely surprise considering the embryo was the result of only one of the 3 eggs collected.

    IVF was tough both physically and emotionally but after a break we are ready to go again. Doctors have said that due to my dwindling ovarian reserve, they recommend that we make this our last attempt using my own eggs. Although chances of success are low compared to using a donor - we feel we would always wonder 'what if?' and so we want to take the final chance.

    I would go through all the injections, yucky diet, painful procedures, down days, long waits and countless appointments a hundred times over. I just need to know I tried.

    Please help us raise funds as part of my 30th Birthday celebrations, one more attempt at a family for me and my wonderful hubby would mean more than any gift. Anything you can donate, even the cost of a day's lunch, will be hugely appreciated.

    You will see again that Matthew and I are saving hard and putting all our spare money into this fund. IVF is an expensive process and the total bill first time was a whopping £9,000.

    If anything we are just glad we are able to raise awareness of infertility and  the struggle some face in trying to achieve something that can often be taken for granted. It is easy to look at a couple without children and assume they made that decision. There is a whole other world out there of people quietly struggling, hoping and dreaming.

    Kerry & Matt xx
