It is so worth the deduction on taxes. YOu can claim anything above 7 1/2% of your medical costs--i believe(each state might be different). So say you make 10000 a year the first 750 dollars you spend on medical costs you can't claim but the rest you can. If you do use IVF as a deduction make sure t...

Your beta might be a bit low--but i wouldn't be to worried--i know way easier said then done. I have seen alot of ladies with lower betas go on to have perfectly healthy babies.

Our clinic does 3 day transfers. In their research they have seen that the sooner they get those embyroes back into their natural environment the better rate of pgy. However, i have learned wiht ivf that each doc and each clinic has their own opinions and ideas. We transferred two day 3 embies and e...

I had my tubes tied in 1997--then in 2001 i attempted a reversal in order for us to have another baby. THe doctor was only able to reattach one tube as the other tube was just to damaged to repair. He gave us good odds of getting pg on our own--sadly we found out 2 years later then my tube had close...

Each state and each ins. policy is different. I would suspect since your tubes are tied that is considered a preexisting condition adn they probably will not cover IVF--but i could be way wrong too. The best thing to do is to call your ins company and talk to them. I too had my tubes tied after my s...
