Lisa Kate’s Story

Dear IVF-Life UK

You may remember me from November/December 2017 when I had IVF at the clinic.

Unfortunately, the treatment did not work, and we were advised by our Dr that he didn’t think that any further treatment would have any greater chance of working than trying naturally. He also said that I should look into HRT in the future.

I took his advice, and in November 2018 I was prescribed HRT as my oestrogen levels were really low.

Fast forward to March 2019 and to our complete shock and surprise, I found out that I was pregnant! I am now 17 weeks and we are over the moon. Our baby is due on 10th November 2019.

I thought that I would let you know, as I feel like IVF-Life UK set us on the right path. I know there is no evidence to suggest that the HRT was the reason I became pregnant, but after 6.5 years of trying and various fertility treatments within that time, it is quite the coincidence that I became pregnant within a few months of taking HRT!

I hope I find you all well.

Kind regards,

Lisa Kate
