Hi ladies,

I just wanted to give an update. It looks like my first baby isnt going to come easily or cheap. My Re is pushing for IVF, and I had a phone consult with Dr. Sher last night, and he also thinks IVF is the only answer. It came as such a disappointment to me. DH and I are discussing the matter and will hopefully decide what to do. It's just so heartbreaking that this journey is continuing and has to go down the IVF road...

Oh no.. I'm so sorry to hear that :cry: May be the same here but I'm still giving it a bit more time. It is crazy expensive - I know even in Canada (where most of our healthcare is paid for us) it's about $10-15,000 and NOT guaranteed - my friend has already done IVF 3 times - yikes!!!

I understand your pain.

We have been trying for years now and still nothing. In total 4 1/2 years with NO protection or nothing. Still trying, and will never give up! It sucks, as this is the only thing I ever wanted in life.

Currently AF 2 days late with bunch of symptoms. Did a test today, BFN. I will wait a few days and try again, but after such a long time I don't even get excited anymore. That is the sad bit!

I'm here if you need someone to moan to!

The consult was free, plus he spent about 45 minutes talking with me, sent in a ton of lab orders for further testing, and will give me another consult once the results come back. If you're really struggling with infertility without any answers, I would recommend talking with Dr. Sher, but be aware that he will most likely recommend IVF.

So I did IUI yesterday and decided to do another one today. These will be our last IUIs I think before deciding whether we'll take the IVF route or not.

Where's everyone else at in their cycle?
