Babble ya IVF

Kile ninachotamani ningejua juu ya ugumba wangu, na Tracey Bambrough

Kwa kuwa nimepitia sana ili mwishowe niwe mjamzito kwa upande mbaya wa 45, nilitaka kushiriki nawe vizuizi kadhaa ambavyo nimekuja na kuelezea ni nini kilinisaidia kufikia ujana, dhidi ya tabia isiyopungua 2%

Nilipoteza miaka mingi sana ya kuzaa kwa sababu sikuwa na ufahamu wowote wa kile kinachoweza kusababisha maswala yangu kupata mimba. Wakati niliona wataalam wa jinakolojia tatu sikupewa vipimo maalum vya damu au vipimo vingine vya uchunguzi. Niliambiwa maumivu ambayo nilikuwa nayo chini ya tumbo langu lilikuwa suala la kumengenya - na hata kufukuzwa kazi kwa sababu ya umri wangu !!

Kwa bahati mbaya nilipata ujauzito wa ectopic na kuharibika kwa tumbo nyingi kisha nikashindwa jaribio langu la kwanza la IVF. Niliamua nitahusika na jaribio langu la pili, na la mwisho la IVF, na sura tofauti kabisa ya akili.

Hapa nimeorodhesha ushauri wangu kulingana na uzoefu wangu na natumai inasaidia na uamuzi wako pia. Kama ninavyosema, tafadhali usifanye makosa yangu na subiri hadi karibu sana.

Umuhimu wa vipimo vya damu

Baada ya miezi 6-12 ya kujaribu kushika mimba bila mafanikio, ni lazima kabisa uzungumze na daktari wako na upimwe vipimo vya damu na uchunguzi, kwa umri wowote. Kuna mpango mzima wa vitu ambavyo vinaweza kukusababisha usiwe na uwezo wa kushika mimba, na azimio rahisi mara tu swala lilipogunduliwa.

Vipimo vya damu vitaangalia viwango vya homoni yako, kugundua wingi wa mayai uliyoacha na kutoa dalili ya nafasi yako ya kutungwa.

When I was finally investigated with the correct blood tests, my consultant discovered that my thyroid level was too high and my progesterone was quite low.

Tezi

Tangu mtoto, nimekuwa na shida za kumengenya na wakati mwingine tumbo lililofura lakini nilikuwa nimeambiwa kila mara ni IBS. Walakini, kufuatia uchunguzi rahisi wa damu na mshauri wangu wa IVF, tuligundua nilikuwa na usawa wa tezi ambayo inaweza kusababisha utasa pamoja na maswala ya kumengenya! Pamoja na levothyroxine niliyopewa kusawazisha viwango vyangu vya tezi, maswala yangu yalipotea !!

Sikuwa na wazo wakati wowote kabla ya kuwa na mtihani huu jinsi ni muhimu sana kwa tezi yako kupima kati ya 1-2.5 kusaidia utaftaji wa akili basi ruhusu athari zaidi ya chini ya tezi inayofanya kazi kwenye mwili wako.

Progesterone

Finding out that I had low levels of progesterone, I began to take supplements, but it was later on, post transfer that I truly realised the importance of progesterone.

Nilipoanza kutokwa na damu katika wiki 2 za kwanza za ujauzito, nilikuwa na wasiwasi nilikuwa nikitoa mimba. Mara moja nilijidunga mafuta ya progesterone ambayo nilipewa kwenye pakiti ikiwa ningeanza kuiona, na vile vile pessary ambayo nilikuwa nimepewa kuchukua. Kwa kushangaza ilisimamisha uangalizi. Niliendelea kuzitumia hadi wiki 16.

Madaktari wanasema kwamba baada ya wiki 12 sio lazima kuendelea na progesterone kwani uterasi huchukua wakati katika utengenezaji wa homoni hiyo wakati huo, hata hivyo, niliendelea kuitumia bila kujali wiki chache baada ya hii.

Ninaamini kabisa Progesterone alinisaidia sio tu kusaidia mazabibu kuingiza.

Umuhimu wa mizani

Equally as important as the blood tests, is a scan to check your uterus is healthy and doesn’t have any obstructions such as polyps, fibroids, scar tissue or adhesions, which can all go totally unnoticed and also without symptoms, to indicate an issue . . . equally to ensure your fallopian tubes are clear and not blocked. A hysterosalpingogram [HSG] can do this.

Kuhakikisha zilizopo zako ni wazi ni muhimu sana, hata na IVF. . . kioevu kutoka kwenye bomba la fallopian lililofungwa inaweza kuwa kama sumu na kuingia ndani ya uterasi na kwa ujumla hufanya iwe mazingira yasiyofurahisha kwa kiinitete chochote kutaka kupachika! Hata kusafisha tu zilizopo kunaweza kukupa nafasi ya kupata mjamzito kwa kawaida.

Mbele ya IVF yangu ya pili, nilikuwa na Scan na iligundulika kuwa nilikuwa na donge ambalo liliishia kuwa polyp, hii iliondolewa mbele ya kwenda mbele na IVF yangu ya mwisho.

Endometriosis

Since starting my period as a child of 10 years, I would spend the first day or two of each period in agony, sometimes almost fainting because of severe pain. I thought it was just how it was. Even travelling to work on a crowded train in my 30s I remember having to get off a train at an earlier stop than I should have to sit on a bench on the platform with my head between my knees because of the severe pain I was in. It was 30 years on from my 10 year old self, following a laporoscopy, that I discovered I had endometriosis.

Vijito vya uharibifu

At 41 I suffered an ectopic pregnancy which blocked one of my fallopian tubes and from then on would have lower abdominal sharp pain on and off. My GP was amazing and referred me to a couple of gynaecologists, but no one picked up on anything. It was only when I saw the incredible IVF consultant, Geoffrey Trew, and explained my history, that he sent me for a hysteropingogram which confirmed his thoughts – I had a blocked tube resulting from the ectopic and a polyp in my uterus.

Umuhimu wa uchambuzi wa shahawa

In amongst all this, let’s also not forget that your partner should get tested too! Either one or both of you may have issues that can be resolved with treatment or as simple as change of diet. My husband, Ben, was tested and there was a slight issue which was treatable through supplements and upping his selenium intake, which he did through brazil nuts!

Dalili inayowezekana ya ratiba yako ya kuzaa watoto

Ninahisi kulazimika kutaja kwamba ningependekeza utafute kutoka kwa mama yako wakati alipomaliza kuzaa, ikiwa bado hajaona.

Mama yangu alienda kwa kuenda kumalizika kwa miaka 50 na kwangu hiyo ilikuwa baraka, ambayo inamaanisha kwamba kulikuwa na nafasi ningekuwa na uwezo wa kuwa na mayai yenye afya kwa muda mrefu na kupata nafasi, ingawa ni ndogo, ya kupata mjamzito baadaye katika maisha.

Bibi yangu alikuwa na watoto wake kadhaa katika miaka ya 40 pia. Tena kiashiria kizuri. Haimaanishi kila wakati kuwa utafuata maumbile ya mama yako kwa njia hii, lakini inaweza kuwa kiashiria kwa wengine na kuwa na maarifa haya, umri wowote, unaweza kukupa nguvu ya kwenda kwa daktari wako na kuwa na AMH mtihani wa damu ambao unakupa dalili ya kiwango cha yai yako. Pia inakupa nguvu ya kufanya uamuzi wa kufungia mayai yako wakati uko tayari, au chaguo na wakati wa kuzingatia njia zingine.

Njia ya uzazi inaweza kuwa ngumu, ya kihemko, ya mwili na ya akili na inaweza kuathiri uhusiano wako pia. Usipoteze ukweli kuna njia nyingi za kufanikisha matakwa yako. Ikiwa njia moja haifanyi kazi, fikiria nyingine. Chukua hatua nyuma na uchanganue hali - ikiwa haufurahii na mshauri wako, nenda uone nyingine, lakini Daima uhakikishe kuwa umepata vipimo vyote vinavyohusika.

Na kumbuka - UCHAMBUZI KWELI NI MUHIMU.

Upendo mkubwa

Tracey
