Our Journey Towards Parenthood: The Beginning

I think this 100 times and even consult my husband about this matter. I want to share with you our journey towards parenthood. I believe that some of you also experience this kind of trials that God gave me, US. In this page, I will detail it one by one until the day that our little angel will come in.

After we got married, we plan for our next goal in life and that is to build our own family, meaning to have a baby. We are so excited to see our bundle of joy that’s why we decided to asked for help with OB gyne doctor. Actually, ever since I was in High School, my monthly period is irregular; sometimes I got my period every other month and so when I turned college, I decided to consult a doctor. They found out that I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a common endocrine disorder of some females. This is a hormonal disorder and one of the leading causes of infertility, the reproductive aspects of the disorder are secondary.

I'm considering infertility treatments as an investment.  It's like a business as it's worth taking the risk.  It's like gambling - you'll never know if you gonna win or lose. The only difference is at the end it's not money that you'll be earning.  It's a birth of a new life.    

If you have PCOS, you will experience, irregular or no menstrual periods monthly which causes irregular ovulation. My OB Gyne doctor recommends me to take pills every month to correct my period, so from 1st year college until I got engaged, I'm taking medication every month until last year my Neuro doctor recommends to stop it due to my “Panic Attack”. My OB doctor is very accommodating, easy to talk with, and she will explain every detail to you. She monitors my PCOS and prescribes me some medicines to reliefs my PCOS. Every month, I undergo transvi at Makati Medical Center to check if there’s any improvement about my PCOS but sad to say di sila nawawala.. Hayz!

We’re married for almost 9 months and we decided to be more serious in having a child. We are now ready to face another chapter in our life. I told my doctor that we will do anything to improve my situation.  So now, we’re taking our 1st step in our session.

Last month my doctor prescribe me Primolut to have my period, I take 1 tablet 2 times a day for 1 week. After 3 days, I got my period, then on my day 2 of menstrual cycle I take Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid) two tables once a day before breakfast good for 5 consecutive days. Clomiphene stimulates the release of hormones needed to cause ovulation but it may take several cycles to find the right dose to stimulate ovulation. Well, I’m on my 1st cycle pa lang naman and according to some research it will be done for 3 to 6 cycles.

Now, can you blame me if I got angry with those stupid women who kill their baby inside the womb (nagpapalaglag). Sometimes, I wonder “bakit yung ibang di ganon kaganda ang buhay ang daming anak and yung ibang ayaw magkaanak nagkakababy, bakit kaming gustong magkababy nahihirapan naman..” but you know what, my husband simply told me “There’s no need to rush. If something is meant to be, it will happen. In the right time, with the right person for the best reason.” Now, I understand that God has better plans for us; we just need to wait and believe in him.

I will post another article about my follice monitoring (3 sessions). So please guys, include us in your prayers.  Thank you so much!
