  • If you don't have regular periods it is possible that fertility drugs can make your reproductive system functional. With IVF you use powerful fertility drugs that stimulate follicles/eggs to start maturing and also produce an adequate lining of the uterus for fetal development. If you do not normally have periods, the fertility drugs may be able to make all this happen, but not always. If fertility drugs cannot stimulate follicular development, then donor eggs with IVF might be an option. If you don't need donor eggs, then IUI with fertility drugs might be another option (it's cheaper than IVF, but more likely to result in higher order multiples).

  • A good reproductive endocrinologist will walk you through your options and make sure you fully understand them. If you're just at the beginning stages of considering IVF, I strongly recommend getting a consultation with a good clinic. They may be able to artificially induce a cycle, but know that it's not always possible. You really need to know your full fertility picture to have a better idea of how successful IVF would be for you. One key hormone level to get checked is day 3 FSH. If that's really high, it's an indicator that IVF will be difficult.

    Good luck!
