I've posted here once before. I'm trying to decide on whether to move on to IVF or not. I'm 36 going to be 37 in 4 months, got pregnant carried to 37 wks and lost ds, now 18 months later we have been trying for 15 months and have had 1 miscarriage and 1 ectopic in January. I have seen two RE's. The RE who has been treating me for the last year, has been nice, but the 2nd RE I went to last month for a second opinion is nice as well. I guess I just don't know who to go with. I have seen how all IVF facilities have to turn in their success rate, does anyone know how accurate that is. The one I'm going to has a success rate that is around 32-33%, but the 2nd RE is around 56%. I asked why the difference and they mentioned at the second office they do day 5 transfers vs my 1st RE who does day 3. I know people who have had success at each office. Emotionally I just don't know who to go with, but I'm also concerned about leaving an office that has done nothing wrong. I just had a 2nd hystersplingogram and it came out good. I retested my fsh which is 6 and my estradol is 38. The only test were waiting on is the clomid challenge and a genetic test to see if thay is why were miscarrying. IVF is not covered by insurance the 1st RE will be between 10-15k and the second starts at 14k. The 2nd RE recommends iui/meds (I've had 4) or ivf. My first RE will do iui/meds, iui/injectables or ivf--she thinks we will eventually have it all work out. So much information, I just don't know what to do.
Thanks for the feedback
