Referred to FCI from a Friend, Graduated with a Baby

Why do you want to share your story?

To let everyone know that everyone’s fertility journey is different and just because it took another couple years to conceive it’s not that way for everyone so trust your heart and follow the journey.

What led you to Fertility Centers of Illinois?

My husband was told he wouldn’t be able to have children.

What was your fertility diagnosis?

Unexplained infertility

Which Fertility Centers of Illinois physician(s) treated you?

Dr. Juan P. Alvarez

What were your experiences with your physician(s)?

I absolutely loved Dr. Alvarez and his nurse Tori was always there with any questions we had.

What infertility treatment(s) did you undergo?


What helped you get through treatment physically and emotionally?

Knowing that in the end of our journey we could be blessed with a beautiful baby, and the support from my husband.

Why did you trust Fertility Centers of Illinois?

My friend had undergone treatment at FCI and I was by her side during her treatment, she always had nothing but good things to say about FCI.

What did you wish you knew before you started fertility treatments?

I think we went into this with a ton of knowledge from a friend so we didn’t have too many questions going into it.

Do you have any words of hope or inspiration for others?

Don’t give up, and don’t let other couples’ stories bring you down. It happened for us on the first round of IUI, so it is possible to not have to go through this process for many rounds.

Please tell us about your little miracle!

Our little guy was due January 16, 2020 and we were beyond excited to meet him and hold him in our arms!
