Campaign Story

Hi! My name is Karina and my husband’s name is Luis, and we would like to share our fertility journey with you.

We have been trying to conceive for the past two years, and while we haven’t succeeded yet, we have faith that we will have that blessing in our home. In 2023, we became pregnant naturally twice and once through IUI (Intrauterine Insemination). Unfortunately, none of these led to a healthy pregnancy, and we suffered two miscarriages and one biochemical pregnancy. After undergoing all the standard diagnostic fertility tests, our doctors found everything to be normal except for my ovarian reserve, which is lower than expected for my age, due to the surgical removal of ovarian cysts when I was 20 years old. We were advised by our doctors to start IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization).

Last October, we did our first round of IVF, which resulted in two embryos. Based on our history of recurrent pregnancy loss, we had to perform PGT-A (Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies) on our embryos, and both were found to have chromosomal abnormalities attributed to egg quality. After an unsuccessful IVF cycle, our doctors encouraged us to try again. We went for another round of IVF early this year, but sadly, the outcome was the same as the first attempt.

Fertility treatments are very costly. Our out-of-pocket expenses to date have already exceeded CAD $30,000. Doctors have now advised us to proceed with IVF using donor eggs. As we process the grief of all our losses, we look optimistically towards our future with IVF using donor eggs.

We are eternally grateful for any help you can give us, allowing us to continue dreaming of the day in 2025 when we can hug our baby, thanks to the support of kind people like you. If you have the possibility and the desire to help us, you can do so by donating to our fundraiser. If you can’t donate, you can also help us by sharing our story. We would be honoured by your support. Thank you for reading!
