Going into my fifth year now of TTC. With about 5 IUI's and 5 IVF's, 2013 seems like this could be my last year at this (I'm also 39 and tired). I'm currently with Cornell and Dr. Braverman (had two other RE's prior). But chances are likely that I am going to leave Cornell and just stay with Dr. B. who I am very happy with right now. I had a hysteroscopy done at Cornell back in November and they removed a Polyp. I also had to push them to do the hysterscopy because I said I will not do another IVF without doing that first. Also had a laporoscopy in early 2012 and was diagnosed with stage 2 Endometriosis. Pretty much still unexplained infertility.
After the Hysteroscopy in November I felt like my acting RE blew me off when I mentioned going back to IUI. My last two IVF's were at Cornell and one of them was a chemical pregnancy. The chemical pregnancy was the closest I've gotten so I really thought that my July 2012 attempt would work but it didn't. They pretty much said that I should try IVF again. Sure, maybe if I win the lottery. I'm out of pocket for everything.
Sorry for the rant so I'll try to make this short. I decided to go to Dr. Braverman and test for immune issues. My husband and I tested normal. I did am IUI cycle on Letrozole with Dr. Braverman in December. I got a positive but didn't get my hopes up. I just mc on Friday, January 4th (was about 3 weeks). But I was shocked that I even got pregnant. Could it have been the polyp removal that helped? But the polyp was pretty small. I'm considering doing another IUI or two rather than IVF.
Any successes of anyone doing IVF and going back to IUI and having success?
Thanks for listening. This board has been my life line. Wishing everyone all the best.
