Patient Story

Wimberly’s Dream Comes True

I would like to express a sincere thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Fertility Center of the Carolinas. We started our fertility journey in January 2013 with high hopes of becoming pregnant within those first few months. Unfortunately, we were let down month after month with negative pregnancy tests.

In November 2013, we were referred to the Fertility Center of the Carolinas by our OB doctor. We met with Dr. Likes because of a dilated/blocked left fallopian tube. Dr. Likes sat down with my husband and me to discuss the details about surgical intervention along with all the components of infertility. We felt very confident in Dr. Likes and moving forward in the infertility process.

After Dr. Likes removed my left fallopian tube, I began taking hormones to help with my cycle. I was very nervous about pursuing further options such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and/or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) however, Dr. Likes was very patient and listened to our fears, hopes, and desires.

After several months without success on hormones alone, my husband and I decided we were ready to try IUI. On June 30th, 2014 we had our first round of IUI. With hopes undoubtedly high, the 2 week wait was excruciating. On July, 14th 2014 we took a pregnancy test, and finally…finally we had a positive test! The next few days and weeks were a roller coaster of ultrasounds and blood tests but it was real, we were finally pregnant after 1 ½ years of trying to conceive. As difficult as infertility was for my husband and me, we were cared for and supported throughout the entire process by the staff at the Fertility Center of the Carolinas.

From the front office staff, to the ultrasound techs, to the nurses, to the doctors – I cannot thank you all enough for giving us a chance to be parents, a chance to raise and love the child we’ve dreamed about for so very long. We are looking forward to visiting the Fertility Center of the Carolinas and letting them meet our little girl, Lilla.
