Staci and others, Did you know that in the US there is an "insurance" you can get for IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies? We don't use it because I am so messed up that my insurance covers most of it (not so uncommon in California). I'm not sure of the details, but I think if you do 3 ...

Staci, Hi. I really related to your post about all your neighbors having baby showers and you being the only person your age without kids. I'm 37 and live in the San Francisco Bay Area (apparently a hotbed of human breeding). I had a job last year where 12 women worked there and 8 of them were pregn...

Debra P, So sorry to hear this time won't be it for you. I was so frustrated that my IVF didn't take. Everything went so perfectly up until the HCGs came back low. Everyone thought our chances were great. I was surprised that I wanted to try again right away as soon as we can. I hope you will consid...

Tracy S, DebraP and Dagny, Thank you so much for your experience and encouragement. It is so helpful since we have to wait 3 weeks for a followup and we have so many questions about FET. We've definately decided to go that way unless the doctor recommends against. Good luck with your cycle, Dagny, a...

This has been so helpful! Based on your feedback, it makes a lot of sense to do FET. I guess after the first attempt failed with the three best embryos of the bunch, I assumed that the lower graded ones would not have a chance. Do they grade embies in the UK? Our frozen ones have grades of 7-8 (numb...

Accidentally posted in IVF forum. Now I'm posting this in the General Forum, too: Hi, I'm new to this board. I just had my first IVF in June - got pregnant, but it only lasted 2 1/2 weeks. HCG numbers were never very strong. I'm 37. Quit my high tech job in October to reduce stress. Found out tubes ...

First IVF Failed - New to Board

Hi, I'm new to this board. I just had my first IVF in June - got pregnant, but it only lasted 2 1/2 weeks. HCG numbers were never very strong. I'm 37. Quit my high tech job in October to reduce stress. Found out tubes were blocked in November after 2 years of trying to conceive (Why did I wait so lo...
