At the age of 15, I had an issue with ovarian cysts, and unfortunately, I sought treatment very late. I underwent emergency surgery, had one ovary removed, and my fallopian tube was cut. The doctor told me I wouldn't be a mom, and it was very tough. I met my partner, told him what happened, and he said we would find a way, that somehow, we would become parents, but it was very difficult.
Dealing with social pressure, being asked about children, and knowing that you are the one with the issue... In 2005, I made the first attempt; they transferred two embryos, but it didn't work. We sought information, visited clinics, attended all expos... until I reached the Institute in 2016. I was already 41, but they said it could be done. We tried in April 2017, and I achieved pregnancy; it was three babies, but unfortunately, I lost them in the fifth month.
After a third attempt, it finally worked, but we didn't want to say anything, didn't publish it. On July 1, 2019, my girl was born. That day we were calm; I knew everything would be fine. The cesarean section went smoothly, but we were very excited. When I heard her cry, I felt so happy; it was beautiful to experience that moment with my husband, to feel her, and finally, see her. Since I was 15, I had resigned myself to the idea that I wouldn't be a mom, but everything falls into place.
Don't give up, and don't feel any less of a woman because many of us go through this. Many of us experience all kinds of things, and we have to do the impossible to achieve it.
