I have a dr. app. on Wed. and would like your opinion. I have been on birth control for the last 6 weeks because I have a cyst that does not want to go away. On Wed. I will go in to check to see if it is gone so we can move on. We are kinda at a crossroads I am am unsure which way to go... My DH and I have been TTC since Aug. of 2007. My cycles were longer than they should be 34-44 days so my OB put me on Clomid for 3 months but that didn't shorten them (still 34 days appart). So, we were reffered to an infertility specialest. We have now done 3 cycles of Gonal with IUI. The first cycle I had one good follicle at 18mm. The second cycle I had 4 good follicles at 18-22mm and about 3-4 smaller ones 13-16mm. The girl doing the IUI told me "OMG I am so excited, you are so going to get pregnant this time!!!" Well, I didn't. The third cycle I had a bunch of follicles around 6-8 that were all mature. A completely different girl doing my IUI this time Opened her mouth and started to say "Wow, you are totaly ovulating everything looks great you are so going to..." I sais "stop the last girl told us that and it was not true!" (my Dh was so sad the second time the IUI didn't work becasue "the girl told us we were going to get pregnant, so why didn't we?") On each cycle our dr. explained the risks to us of high order multiples and hyperstimulation syndrom. My husbands sperm count is good but not great, his count is high but he has a slight morphology problem( which is why we have chosen to do IUI). We have recently switched our insurance to Kaiser which so far has been wonderful! The only problem I have now is what to do next. Our new RE seems open to any option we choose. Do we do another few rounds of injectible meds with IUI(has anyone had luck on their 4th or 5th IUI)? Or do we move to IVF because after 3 rounds of IUI #4 has very little chance of being effective? I can talk to friends and family about it until I'm blue in the face, but I would like the opinions of people who have been through or are going through what I am. If it was you what would you do? If you have made it all the way through this message, thank you!!! I know I am a little long winded but your response would mean a lot to me.

hello,my husband and I recently received news that our chances of conceiving on our own are slim at most and the best option for us is to use an egg donor.I understand that this is the best choice but am currently struggling with coming to terms with the fact that with the donated egg there will be no genetic factors of mine and the loss of being able to get pregnant on my own.I wanted to know...
I am scared beyond words to find out if any of my beloved blasts are suitable for transfer. This is my 2nd ivf cycle and it will be my last. I am 41 yrs old and have no children. I have no one close to me that understands the journey I am on. Please send prayers and good vibes my way.
