Infertility Treatments

Hi, This is the first time I'm on Mamasource. I was just wondering if anyone has gone through multiple infertility treatments. My husband & I are at the insemination stage & I'm getting ready for the third attempt. I find that each time I go through the process, it's harder & harder emotionally. To the point where I'm so anxious I think I could just jump out of my skin. I'm in my late 30's so I think each time a treatment doesn't work, I feel like I'm one step closer to the point that motherhood may not be in my future. I go to a great...

Endometriosis and Fertility

My question is does anybody out there have endometriosis, and what has trying to get pregnant been like for you? We have not really tried, but we do not use protection and yet nothing has happened yet. Some of my friends say I should go to a fertility doctor now before we really try and get a work up? I know years ago one of my doctors said that there is no way to tell, for me, if it will be hard or easy. He said I have a lot of scar tissue from the endometriosis, so he said until I try there is no way to tell. Is this true? Just wondering...

I have been trying to get pregnant for almost a year now and had a miscarriage in October. I had a stroke at age 19 and I'm 27 now. I have to take coumadin until I find out I'm pregnant and then switch to Lovenox (coumadin can really harm the baby). My gyno gave me the number to an infertility gyno. He talked to my husband and I on Monday and on Wednesday I had to go see him. He drew my blood because I was supposed to be ovulating but I already ovulated so he couldn't give me the shot. The shot is ovidrel and I am worried that it might...

Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Firboid history: I was very sick and had to have an emergency myomectomy back in 2001 to remove 8 fibroids that were located outside of my uterus. They grew back and were bothering me by 2005. In 2005, the tumors were located on the outside of my uterus and inside the uterine wall. We had to rush to the fertility doctor to try to get pregnant before the tumors got worse. We got pregnant with a double-IUI in November 2005, and I had my daughter August 2006. The tumors are now back with a vegence . . . my ultrasound report shows that I...

Desperately Seeking in Vitro Advice

Hi, I have a good friend who has been trying to get pregnant for the second time for a while now. She has tried everything and is at the point of in vitro. Does anyone have any advice on what will help her have success with in vitro? She has been debating over accupuncture (but she got sick from it last time), massages or reflexology? She is nervous that with any of these treatments there maybe adverse effects. Any first hand experiences, good or bad, will be very helpful. Thanks!

Fertility questions/Insurance Coverage

My insurance doesn't cover infertility, even something as basic as blood work to test hormone levels. Does anyone know of a facility that is low cost for out-of-pocket fertility expenses? We are at the beginning stages of just making sure the plumbing works. Any information would be appreciated.
