Campaign Story

Hello! We are Scott and Jessica!

We met 8 years ago through work and have been together ever since. We had a lot of our little adventures together that the only thing left was to tie the knot and have a family. We eloped during the peak of covid and used the money we saved for our supposedly wedding and purchase our home. We were delighted! We thought it will be that easy! You get married, get a house, get a dog and have babies! Yes babiesssss!

We were trying naturally for 2 years even before we got married with no luck and at that time we didn’t really put a lot of thought into it. Its just that it is not happening to us YET. NO RUSH, we said. We started asking questions of what could be wrong in early 2020 and by the end of the year we have found out that Scott has a low testosterone level and low sperm count, it was described to us as “almost nothing and abnormal”. During that time we were only given an option to adopt. As a young, healthy couple we were saddened by this, confuse even. We have questions, we needed options yet we’re only given the option to adopt.

Gladly, we did our research and reached out to a specialist in Seattle and Kirkland. We were diagnosed as unknown infertility, unknown cause of low testosterone levels. Scott’s undergoing diagnosis and treatments to improve levels and quality of sperm to retrieve samples and that’s how we got into the whole IVF.

It is very promising given our age and our overall health. We both had multiple testings and medications in preparation to help for a successful IVF. In between all diagnosis and treatments we are still attempting to conceive naturally. We are still hoping to conceive naturally.

Our egg retrieval yielded 12 eggs; only 7 fertilized and out 7 only 3 came back to be normal with genetic testing.

For the last 3 years of diagnosis, treatment, egg retrieval and 3 embryo transfers, we were unsuccessful. We were doing more testings in between transfer (me specificially) to figure out why it was failing to latch, only to come back with no clear answer. Test results are normal. No further treatments because there’s nothing to treat. Again, the cause of infertility is unknown and it is heartbreaking.

Outside our IVF clinic, we are seeing a chiroprator, doing acupuntures, suppliments, excercises, etc. Our last embryo transfer did result to a positive pregnancy test but we lost it a week later. Even with that loss, it gave us hope that a pregnancy is still possible.

We couldn’t emphasized more of the heartbreak we had experienced and are still experiencing but despite the heartaches and the difficulties emotionally, physically and financially we are still hopeful and would like to go through another IVF cycle.

With the amount of money spent on this whole process, we could no longer do this on our own and we are reaching out for any help we can get. We have decided that this cycle will be our LAST attempt with IVF and we want to do our utmost effort to make it happen. Your donations will all go towards our IVF journey with Poma Fertility in Kirkland. Help us to make this into a reality and PRAY for us that at the end of the tunnel we will also welcome our little Scott or Jessica. Thank you.
