I am currently 30, DH(dear husband) 34, unexplained IF(Infertility). I am in 2WW (2 week wait) of my 5th IUI/Clomid cycle and am seriously contemplating IVF next cycle if this doesn't work. I have spoken to my RE (reproductive endocronologist) about it, but was wondering if I could get some feedback from ladies who have been through it.
I was wondering, start to finish, about how many weeks does it usually take? Does everyone do BCP's (Birth Control Pills) at the start of the cycle?
Also, I am petrified about the progesterone shots - has anyone eithr done the suppositories during an IVF cycle or have any info on the reality of the PIO (Progesterone in oil) injections? I am also scared of OHSS.(Ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome).
I know my questions are pretty broad - I am so nervous, I don't know where to start. My RE says the chances (from the clinic's stats) are about 50 - 60 % success rate. Does that sound accurate?
Thanks for your help,
