Hello I am single and had my initial appointment with a specialist who recommended IVF.  I have spoken with men I known about being donors but this gets complicated.   Have any of you used unknown donors?  How did you go about chosing a donor and how confident were you in your choice. Thx ..read more

Hello I am new here and I was told this was a good place to ask for help. My husband and I are starting IVF and I must say it is quite expensive. We were just given the price list for my prescriptions that BCBS does not cover and it is 5k. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to get this cost lower? Looks like Menopur and Ganirelix are the most expensive from the list. Thanks in advance for the help ..read more

Hi, for those of you whose health insurance covers ivf, did you have to do iui first? If so, how many? And any requirements for the drugs used with iui (clomid or injectibles)? I’m particularly interested if anyone has Empire blue cross blue shield and/ or used WINFertility. Thank you!  ..read more

Hello! First of all, I wanted to ask what are the lifestyle changes you did to improve fertility? Are there any medications or supplements that can help? I'm actually asking to for a close friend who's been trying to conceive for about a year now and I wanted to help her even in little ways. She is also open to fertility treatments, such as IVF as an option and is considering Fertility First clinic in Sydney. I've read great reviews on this clinic online and they have pretty good success rates. Does anyone of you here have any experience in this clinic? or any other fertility clin ..read more

Hi everyone! I’m Michelle. I had labs done over a month ago, honestly maybe two for my hormones. I had not gotten a period after having my second iud removed ( a year or two early) to try to get pregnant with my husband. About a week after my labs were done I had a scheduled call to review the results, but my doctor got pulled away so the call was with a PA. I looked at the results in my patient portal and saw I had low levels of estrogen and my FSH was high. I knew things were not as they should be but I wait to speak to a professional. The PA told me my labs were good and normal. They were n ..read more

Hello everyone, My husband and I decided 2 years ago we were ready for kids. We got pregnant right away and had a chemical. We kept trying, and a year later we were referred to a fertility clinic. I have since had uterine polyps and endometriosis removed. I got a positive blood test last week and was told today hsg has dropped and resulted in another chemical. I am so devastated. It took 2 years just to conceive again and I thought removing the polyps would fix the implantation issue. There is no way I can afford ivf or iui, especially considering it is not guaranteed. I wish i knew what I wa ..read more

Poor responder

Been ttc for over a decade. Got medical help since 2019. Went through numerous medicated cycles (oral and stim). Did three round of IVF. First round with one mature egg but didn’t make it to day 5. Second & third rounds ended in cancellation due to lack of responding. Low AMH, on thyroid medications, and poor responder to the medications even in highest dose. Tried antagonist, lupron suppression, & minimal protocols…none that work. Anyone in the same situation? I am so drained ..read more

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum but not new to infertility. I am a 38 year old woman and I started my fertility treatments 3 years ago after about a year of TTC naturally. I got pregnant with my first IUI in 2021 but that ended in an MMC at 9 weeks. After 3 more unsuccessful IUIs, we decided to try IVF. We were hopeful but little did we know that it would take us so long. Now about 3 years later, after 3 egg retrievals, 2 embryo transfers, 1 biochemical and 1 anembryonic pregnancy, here I am with nothing to show for it. My latest embryo transfer in December was the anembryonic that I just ..read more
