  • I did not get to IVF, but was doing injectable fertility drugs and was in a support group with many women. Some women were already doing IVF, some were just beginning their journeys.

    The best advice I had gotten was to join a support group and to look into acupuncture at some point between collection and implantation I believe. It's been nearly 7 yrs since then, so it is a little hazy.

    Find a really good clinic, one you trust and makes you feel comfortable. I had the luxury of being in the same city as one of the cutting most edge practices in the country. The doctors were very up front and explained everything - repeatedly if necessary. And I got pregnant, which was the end goal.

    Good luck on your journey.

  • I did IVF. My story is long....8 years long! We TTC a few years then seeked medical help. Did 4 rounds on Clomid. Nothing. Then did 4 rounds of IUIs (3 with injectables)...nothing. Then took 2 years to pay off medical bills. Went back to the RE in 2007 for an IVF cycle. It wasn't easy, and the meds sent me into Hyperstimulation (sp). However, the cycle went on, and on my first try, I got PG with my son. Born January 2008. YAY!

    We are currently going through a FET cycle. My transfer is Tuesday!! WOW!
