We personally had conceiving problems & considered this treatment after a string of lost pregnancies. Took a medication widely used in IVF treatments. The side effects to this medication are absolutely horrible. The doctor didn't think that our prognosis was good. So IVF was suggested.
I took stock of the situation. Should I really go through this treatment plan? If I chose IVF procedure, there were more side effects that come along with it, ovarian cancer being the biggest threat. I felt if we went thru IVF, we would play God. If God wanted us to have a child, does He really need our help? Or are there reasons why He didn't give us a child (then)?
Finally we decided against this treatment and resigned to the reality what doctor stated Ė that I would be unable to conceive. Exactly a year after we stopped the treatment, I conceived without any medical help. It was Godís time and His will for us then. Doctors were skeptical. It was a very difficult pregnancy but our son was born, amazingly healthy.
Today he is a testament of God's faithfulness in our lives. I share my testimony to encourage those who are going & will go thru similar situations. If God will's for you is to have a child, He will give no matter what science says. He doesn't need our help.
In the case of IVF, conception occurs outside the womb in a dish. Does God need any unnatural environment for conception to occur? He is faithful to give any couple a child or more if that is in His perfect will for them. That is the lesson that we learned thru our experience. Just have faith in Him and believe God does all things for our good. I hope our testimony bless your hearts.
