My husband and I were trying to have kids for 14 years. Not ovulating (having PCOS), it was naturally difficult if not impossible for me to get pregnant on my own. I went through 7 IVF/ICSI cycles in the Netherlands at various hospitals in 12 years. I got pregnant 4 times but miscarried in the 6th week every time. Multiple tests were done to diagnose what was causing recurrent miscarriages but nothing was found. When I started fertility treatments I was 26 years old, now I had turned 38 and growing age was not making things easier for me. Being a scientist myself I knew that this could just not be by chance, that there was something wrong and it needed to be fixed.
