(updated) Poll for the "pregnant" (past & present) ...

This poll is for anyone who is or has been pregnant. Due to you can only select one answer, here are the rules ...

The poll is on the VERY BOTTOM of the right column. Just skip past everything to find it.

Question is ... For those pregnant directly from treatments what was the treatment that ~got you pregnant)? Only check what the bfp cycle was, not everything you've tried. If you got pregnant treatment-less, there are two "none of the above" options in the second poll box.

1. If you have had treatments in both successful and failed pregnancies, answer for the successful one.
2. If you've had multiple successful pregnancies, answer for the one that had the "biggest" infertility treatment, which is defined by you.

I know some conditions "fall through the cracks" here, but just use your best guess to define the answer I'm looking for. Pretty much, I want to know what what the "biggest" or "hardest" or "most complicated" infertility treatment did you use to get your hardest to get BFP.

By the way, I left out surgeries and procedures because that's not a 'get you pregnant' treatment. It could have certainly gotten your oven ready, but I won't say it's any of the 4 uterine surgeries that ~got~ me pregnant.

UPDATE - I answered questions in the comments AND I added another poll for more available answers. And I changed the rules to allow some "none of the above" options for those who didn't have treatment BFPs to still answer.

I'd have to answer- none of the above. Spontaneous pregnancy after 3 Clomid cycles and one Clomid/IUI.

Diagnosis: unexplained infertility.

I chose other. For pregnancies with children, the furthest I had to go was 150 mgs Clomid w/trigger.

For my surrogacy pregnancy, it was IVF with my IPs' eggs and sperm (as opposed to ED or donor sperm).

my other = donor sperm FET
:)

Denise said...

Does IVF with ICSI count as a separate category?

nancy said...

Mrs Spock - yup, you didn't conceive with treatments, so no poll for you! :)

Kymberli - YOUR answer would be oral meds IUI w/ trigger. Your surrocacy pregnancy would be the answer the parents of that child's answer.

Calliope - Damn it. I can't beleive I put down donor sperm IVF and missed FET. Sorry! I knew I was missing some glaring options!

Denise - nah, IVF is IVF in this poll.

totally unrelated.. i got the socks!!! thanks!! orange & red stripes! nice!!! :D i will be sure to wear them to the RE.

oh and related: i'm very interested in the outcome of this poll..

Kymberli said...

Nancy, I didn't click on the oral meds IUI w/trigger because I didn't have an IUI - just timed intercourse.

Christina said...

I chose 'Other' for getting knocked up because I went through IVF with ICSI. And the ICSI really what made me feel like a trooper!

nancy said...

Okay Christina - you get to do what you define it as. :) I went through ICSI myself, but it didn't change ~my~ treatment at all. It just got the spermie into the egg.

I don't know why, but I can't see the poll "options", only the poll question. Underneath the question is an advertisement. Bummer!

My success came after our 2nd IUI attempt, Clomid with trigger shot. BTW, I'm only a week and 2 days ahead of you, so I'm anxious to see which of us pops first!

My other=IVF with PGD. We wouldn't have gotten pg without the PGD for a balanced translocation.
