  • I would not adopt. If it didn't work I would take that as a sign. I would however try whatever I could within financial reason.

  • If I couldn't get pregnant I would adopt. I would take that as a sign that there is some child out there who needs my love. Ive known a LOT of people that have not been able to get pregnant, adopted, and a couple years later get pregnant.

  • I personally would adopt maybe after about 2-3 years of trying. I have a friend that lost several babies. She ended up adopting and got pregnant a year later. The doctors are not sure why this happened but she said that if she had never adopted she may not of ever gotten pregnant. *shrugs* I think that if you really want a child and cannot have one of your own, why not give that love to a child that is less fortunate? I wish you good luck and hope that all works out for you. Have a blessed day!

  • I know couples who have tried with and without the treatment s. And decided to adopt and within two years both had children on there own. I think the self induced stress of "trying" is more or the the main problem in most cases. I have nothing against adoption and would love to do so myself. Honestly it depends mostly on how you think you could be to a child you did not birth.

  • I am almost positive we're done with me birthing children, we have 2 and I'm good on being pregnant again, and we're going to adopt to add to our family. I think if I by now at almost year 6 of our marriage and we were childless we would have adopted by now.

  • You ask a personal opinion, people give it & get voted down. How nice.

  • I would probably try 4-5 times.

    I know how important it was to me to feel a baby moving inside my womb and to be able to experience pregnancy so I would probably try several times as long as I had the finances.

    I would not, however, deplete my finances to a point where I coundn't afford to adopt if I needed to use that option.

  • I would never try fertility treatments. I decided long time ago that I would have whatever I was going to have and be happy about it.
