I never thought IVF would be a journey my family would have to take in order to make our dreams of being parents a reality. I had a successful full term pregnancy when I was 18yrs old. I thought when I married my husband in 2013 at 34 that becoming pregnant would be a piece of cake. I mean I already successfully did it once so infertility never crossed my mind. After a year of trying I went to see my OB who put us on clomid, 4 rounds to be exact. After that failed he referred us to Dr. Pinto to do a HSG test and a sperm check for my husband Ryan. Both came back good, so another round of clomid we did. After that failed attempt, I was referred back to Dr. Pinto. Who knew that this man through the God’s guiding grace would change our lives forever.
After thorough testing Dr. Pinto let us know that I had poor egg quality and quantity. He advised that IVF would be my best option at successfully becoming pregnant and that with each year passing would only make it more difficult to succeed. Reluctant to accept this at first he did one more round of clomid with us. We finally got pregnant only to miscarry shortly into the first few weeks of the pregnancy. I was devastated as was my husband. I truly thought that I would never be able to give my husband the family he dreamed of and we both wanted so desperately.
Dr. Pinto reiterated that IVF was my only real option and hope of becoming pregnant. Trusting his knowledge and faith, we decided to take that leap and go through with IVF.
Thank God for Dr. Pinto because on January 26th 2017 we delivered our beautiful twins RyAnn & Crystopher. Our family was finally complete. I could never thank the staff and Dr. Pinto for all they did to help us cross this hard and painful path of infertility to get to our Rainbow’s!! We are forever grateful and blessed.
Thank You for completing our family.
