Campaign Story

Hi. We are the Presley family, and we are raising funds to help support our infertility journey. Just a little background on our story, we married in April 2020 and started trying to conceive 6 months following. After several months without success, we began oral medication to induce ovulation, followed by two rounds of failed IUI (intrauterine insemination). We were advised to start the process of IVF and we have had two unsuccessful rounds without explanation. I have poor ovarian response to IVF medications, meaning I do not produce adequate egg numbers or quality despite no obvious cause. This effects less than 24% of all IVF patients, and is even less common for patients under 35. In other words, we have the what but not the why. It has been recommended I have an extensive procedure to evaluate for potential causes of my poor ovarian response prior to further rounds of IVF.

Those who know me best know my deep desire to become a mom and experience pregnancy. Unfortunately, surgery and IVF come with very high costs and little insurance coverage. Therefore, we are reaching out to our community to ask for donations to help with the costs. If you are unable to donate but still want to help, we are asking for continued prayers and for you to share our fundraiser page.

    Surgery

    Hello, I wanted to provide an update. Yesterday I went for exploratory surgery to assess for possible causes of my infertility. During surgery they found a condition called endometriosis, which is when the lining of your uterus begins to overgrow and attach to pelvic organs, and the endometriosis was removed. Unfortunately, endometriosis is only completely curable with a hysterectomy and will come back but fertility is greatly increased for the first 6-12 months following removal. Also, a cyst on my right ovary was removed. My fallopian tubes were found to be damaged and inflamed, likely d/t hx of Crohn's and surgical intervention for the Crohn's. Unfortunately, both tubes did have to be removed, which means we have no chance of natural conception, which likely would have never happened with the damaged tubes anyway. We are feeling optimistic and are excited to proceed with next round of IVF with higher chances of success following my surgery.
