This is my blog detailing my fertility journey over the last six years.

I’m in a same sex relationship. We have been married for just over nine years. We decided to start our family over six years ago. I have had both donor insemination and ivf.

My three donor inseminations all resulted in negative pregnancy results. As did my first three rounds of ivf (one fresh and two frozen). My forth (second fresh cycle) resulted in a chemical pregnancy and the fifth in a miscarriage. Writing about my experience has helped me cope with the ups and downs of infertility.

I finally got pregnant with twins after my sixth ivf cycle (using frozen embryos) and they were born in April 2018.
