My name is Yarelis and my husband is Hector we would like to tell you our story.  At age 16 I had my first child I was very young my husband and I at the time got divorced being we were just kids. Time past and I met my daughter‘s father in 2002 she was born January 2003 but that relationship was stormy every day, when my daughter was born I decided then to get operated being now 21 I thought it was the right thing to do, I then separated from my daughters father each of us went our own way.

In 2010 I met my current husband everything was different with him I felt I have found my soul mate the person I wanted to spent the rest of my life with, he also has a daughter from a previous marriage at that time she was 6 yrs. old just like my daughter.  As time passed I grew with the desire to bore another child and be a mom again my husband wanted to have more kids as well, when we started our relationship I was honest with him and told him I couldn’t have more kids so we talked about our options, a lot of times I got frustrated to the fact that I couldn’t get pregnant and I would cry and tell him to find someone else to give him another child that he so desired but he didn’t give up and we started to look for clinics of IVF and we found one I was desperate and anxious and didn’t want to keep looking so we started  treatment in February of 2012, for all of you who knows about this treatment and  started one knows how expensive it is and we did not have the means at that time so we made loans asked family for money to start the treatment and that didn’t include medications. I started with Progesterone Lupron, one month drinking Gatorade, injections it was stressful but I continued, March 13, 2012 was my egg retrieval procedure they collected 18 eggs and from there only 4 embryos came out. That day they gave me the date for the embryo transfer which was March 16 2012 those three days was extremely long for me, and then they told me to wait eleven days for the pregnancy test. I go to the clinic and the nurses exact words were “the numbers came out crappie” and she said stop taking all the medications and wait for your period, it was the most hurtful feeling I have ever experienced I left the clinic in tears asking myself what have I done wrong. My husband and I spoke that day and he said let’s try again maybe this time nothing goes wrong, I was frustrated at this point nevertheless I tried again I started new medications and on June 25 of 2012 I had the second embryo transfer that didn’t work either they said that the embryo was abnormal but that I was young and could always keep trying. In reality I didn’t know what else to do or think I didn’t even want to pass by the baby’s clothes that I already had complied.

I came to realize that I truly desired to have another baby on June of 2013 my husband had orders out of town (he is in the military) he called me and I mentioned to him if he still wanted a baby he said yes so I asked him how about if I reverse my tubes that way is not science and procedures is just me and my pregnancy, he wasn’t to convinced but I started searching on line anyway and the first name that popped up was Dr. Levin I started to read more about him, his experiences, great reviews they were impressive. Without saying a word to my husband I contacted Dr. Levin via e-mail I send him my surgery papers he gave me a consultation, after that he told me the great news that he could do the procedure. Well that is great Yarelis, now where am I going to get $6200 for this procedure when we were still in depth with the IVF.  Time kept passing by and I couldn’t figure out how to pay for this procedure I was already thinking that I was not going to be able to do it but, God always has a plan my friend lend me the money on February 14, 2014 I did the payment for the surgery. A few days later I received my instructions and the date which the surgery was going to take place. Now this was for real March 20th. 2014 I will have my surgery done. Since the month of February I started to prepare myself, doing exercise, eating right I wanted everything to go smoothly, on March 19th. My Husband, daughters and I traveled from Florida to Kentucky 15 hours I couldn’t sleep that night when we got to the hotel (by the way the service in that hotel was great!)  I was scared, because I never met Dr. Levin I didn’t know what to expect, so the next morning all I could say was God please let everything be alright. The staff for Dr. Levin treated me very well and when I first met Dr. Levin he brought me peace I knew at that moment I was in the right place. At the end of the surgery when I woke up they informed me that my right tube could not be fixed and the left one only 7 centimeters could be worked on, that night I experience a lot of pain but nothing I could not handle and my husband was by my side helping me through it all. Next morning around 10 Dr. Levin came with his nurse they checked my incision they gave me instructions as to what to do next  and one of them was not to have sexual relations for six weeks. We said our goodbyes. I have to be honest with you, this Doctor is a man who is dedicated to his Job, absolutely loves what he does I had no problem sending an e-mail Sunday late night or Monday first thing in the morning and he had no problem what so ever to answer me.

Time went by and in the beginning of August 2014 my husband tells me you are acting weird I think you are pregnant, I didn’t believe it so he went to buy a pregnancy test and sure enough 5 months after the surgery I was pregnant I did 3 tests after that and still I was pregnant. That same afternoon (it was a weekend) I wrote to Dr. Levin he send the orders for testing for the HCG and Progesterone my numbers came back low and we continue this twice a week , soon after the HCG went up and the Progesterone down so on August 28th. He put me on Progesterone after that Dr. Levin wishes me a productive pregnancy and to let him know how everything turns out. It was the best e-mail I ever read from him. My pregnancy was not easy being me 33 yrs. old it’s not like I was young anymore, but I kept my exercises, I was eating healthy and on October 16 I had my sonogram and to my surprise it was a boy! How happy I was, well time passed and finally on March 24th. 2015 a year later David Elijah De Jesus was born 7lbs with 7 ounces 21 inches I couldn’t believe a was a mom again in total shock I just stared at him he was a miracle to me. God timing is perfect I want to give thanks to Dr. Levin for helping complete my desire to have a baby again you are an Angel here on earth. God Bless you and your staff these are my sincere desire for you always. I thank you for that wonderful journey for now David is 6 months old and a healthy happy baby.

From all of the De Jesus Family Deland Florida
