A Tough Road To Pregnancy

Mrs Yi and her husband are from China. Her husband works for an international company and his work led them to relocate to Malaysia. They have been actively trying to get pregnant since they got married way back in 2010. Unfortunately, the long wait has never yielded any positive result. They finally decided to go for fertility testing in Metro IVF when Mrs Yi came numerous across encouraging reviews online. Semen analysis indicated that Mr Yi has azoospermia and further testing revealed that he was also not able to produce any sperm. Mr and Mrs Yi was devastated at first but her ever supportive husband was open to the idea of having a sperm donor and encouraged Mrs Yi to try.

Mrs Yi underwent IUI in April 2014 and June 2014 but pregnancy eluded them.

They finally opted for IVF in August 2014. On OPU day, 11 oocytes were harvested but only 3 were good for transfer on ET day. Sadly, these embryos failed to implant.

Though both of them felt very disappointed and very disheartened, they still wanted to try again for a child. They were advised to rest for a few months and they finally came back in April 2015 to try IVF again. This time around 17 oocytes were harvested, 3 embryos were transferred and another 3 embryo were able to be frozen for future use.

2 weeks later (May 2015), when the UPT strip showed a double line and her pregnancy was confirmed with a BHCG of 953IU, Mr and Mrs Yi was overwhelmed with emotion. They were so happy and the joy was doubled when they saw 2 gestational sacs with heartbeat (and 1 smaller empty sac) a few weeks later. Mrs Yi made preparations to go back to China as her visa was due and she wanted to be with her family who could take care of her.

Events took a drastic turn in September 2015 when Mr Yi made a call to inform us that Mrs Yi had miscarried her twins at 25+weeks due to cervical imcompetence. He indicated his wife’s desire to come back for an FET cycle with their remaining embryos. Mrs Yi was advised to rest for at least 6months to recuperate.

Nearly a year later, in August 2016 Mrs Yi came back to us to start her FET cycle. Her steely determination and bravery left us in awe. 3 embryos were transferred in September 2016 and when she emailed from China indicating that she was pregnant again, all of us were overjoyed. She is currently a stay at home mom to her precious baby girl!! Her steely determination has finally been rewarded.
