Dear readers, I continue to introduce you to excerpts from my book "Angels drink milk".
"You should understand that there is no diagnosis of infertility of uncertain origin, there is always a reason for not getting pregnant, and only an experienced doctor can get what that reason is. Don't believe people who say that 95 percent of infertility is due to psychological factors, just the opposite, 95 percent is due to physiological reasons!"
In general, the persistence of some patients was surprised not only the young gynecologist Kim Jin-Ho, but also the doctors with a huge experience, her colleagues. Here is such a story, of course without names and surnames, one of her colleagues, Pak Pur-Soo, shared at a seminar for doctors. She received a letter from a Russian patient, which made her want to cry and be happy at the same time. It was an example of the heroism of a mother who went through everything possible with one goal-to conceive and give birth to her angel. Here is the appealing text:
"How I managed to give birth to our child and carry it out is known only to God. Seven different IVF protocols in Russia and then one in Korea, which was victorious, but what it cost my husband and me! Of course, it's not about money…
For those who think that you have too many diagnoses, I will write my own. I have endometriosis in the peritoneum of the fourth degree (out of four possible), the adhesive process of the abdominal cavity of the fourth degree, that is, the maximum, an endometrioid cyst of 1,5 inches with three cavities. A few years before the successful attempt, 3 fibroids were removed: 2.4, 1.5 and 1inches. The small ones, from 0.3 to 1.3 inches remained (with them I went to the protocol, the cyst was not removed as well). Ovarian reserve at the time of the last protocol is about 0.3 (the norm is higher than one). Both fallopian tubes were removed to increase the chances of IVF treatment.
Plus to the above, I have almost formed diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, decreased sensitivity to insulin and, of course, obesity. For this reason, the entire pregnancy I was injected with insulin, since from the seventh week of pregnancy, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus.
Pregnancy up to thirty weeks in general went normally: even toxicosis was almost absent, but they constantly told me I had low placentation of the fetus. At thirty-one weeks, I started to bleed a little pink, spent a week in a hospital. At exactly thirty-two weeks, right during the ultrasound screening, I started to bleed. We were urgently taken to the perinatal center. I spent the night lying in the delivery room, thinking what to do. That night I was lucky, the birth didn't start: I went to bed, but I never left the hospital again. At thirty-four weeks and five days, I was transferred to a regional maternity hospital for observation until delivery. On the same day, the nightmare began: a critical placental abruption! The minutes counted, and the catheters were placed in my veins right in elevator while they were takingme to the operating room. I was lucky with the baby: the operating room and all the staff were in full alert, since it was at this time scheduled for a planned cesarean section of another woman. They have already started to give her an anaesthetic, but here they brought me, the woman was urgently disconnected and wheeled out," they put me on the table. Thanks to the coordinated actions of the doctors, I heard the first cry of My child! It took about 30 minutes from the time of the beginning of the bleeding to the birth of my son. If we were at home (which is unthinkable…), he would not be born, and I would be left without a uterus at least.
Another horror my family experienced at the end of the first trimester of pregnancy. I was given a 1:20 risk of having a child with down syndrome in Russia. This is a high probability! To say that I was shockedwould be an understatement! I couldn't even cry for the baby. The only thing that did not allow me to believe the test result and get an abortion is that the day before I passed the first screening in Korea and underwent genetic check up. Two weeks later, the result came "a genetically healthy child is expected. Even at 12 weeks, my Korean doctor said that it would be a boy. Also, after transferring two fairly average embryos, I was assigned 3 immunoglobulin IVS to prevent rejection. The doctor decided to play it safe and, as it turned out, he was right.
We all won together! And I wish the same results to all childless couples who are going to take advantage of high reproductive technologies and thinking that they have a lot of diagnoses!"
Reading this story, you can't help but realize that any hopeless situation is just a reason to sit down, think for a minute and start acting. Fate likes bold and positive people, as soon as you start to loose spirits life usually changes for the worse.
 Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease in which the cells of the endometrium (the inner layer of the uterine wall) grow beyond this layer.
 Endometrioid cyst is one of the types of tumor on the ovary in a woman..
 Fibroid is a benign tumor in the uterus.
 Gestational diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder, which is based on a lack of formation of its own insulin and a simultaneous increase in blood glucose levels.
 Placentation of the fetus is attachment of the placenta in the lower parts of the uterus, leading to its dysfunction as the weight of the fetus increases.
