Curtis & Trenna IVF

Trenna and I were married in the summer of 2011. We started trying to have a child in fall of 2011, and it has become a dangerous and costly proposition. We determined through some medical procedures that Trenna has Endometriosis. The procedure to remove it resulted in three ER visits and a night in which she hit a 104 degree Fahrenheit temperature for several hours. That probably was the most terrifying night of my life. We became indebted around this period, due to the medical bills and the fact tht she couldnt work with the new health issues. I, Curtis, am an electrician. I work for my father's small company. At the time these medical concerns hit, Trenna was working at a local credit union here in northern Utah. After three years, we are approaching the age of thirty and stabilized our financial standings. However, we have an appointment september 5th 2017 to determine how to proceed medically, to try to conceive a child. We are looking to do a round of In-Vitro Fertilization, because Intrauterine Insemination was unsuccessful multiple times. This has been one of the biggest disappointments in my life. My wife, Trenna, would be the best mother. My mother-in-law is a wonderful mother. my wife's grandparents were incredible. It is so rough, as a husband, to not be able to provide the family my wife wnts. She wants to be a mother so badly. I want to be a father. We are going to do whatever it will take to make that happen. If, in the end, IVF is unsuccessful, we will then explore the option to adopt a child. There is a plan at a local Fertility specialist office, which holds a money-back guarantee. That is the route we hope to take. Thank you for your consideration.
