My IVF Pregnancy Journey

About Us

My husband and I have been married since Sep 2011. We had troubles conceiving. We went from one doctor to another trying different methods (western doctor, eastern doctor, spiritual doctor, …). No luck until we went through an IVF treatment in Seoul, South Korea. Now, I am currently pregnant from the first cycle of IVF Treatment in Seoul, South Korea.

When I was trying to find out about IVF Treatment in Seoul, there was not much information or details about the IVF treatment in English. Hopefully, with this blog, I can help other couples by giving as much information as I could to help you guys who are going or will go through an IVF Treatment.
