My RE has a checklist of things to do before we can have an IVF cycle. One of the things is attend a seminar about the process/policies/procedures. DH and I went last night. On the one hand it was long and we didn't learn much that we didn't already know. But I can see their point in requiring it. Not everyone does all the research first and this is the clinic's version of informed consent.

Well now its making me wonder about the two shared risk plans. Do

I'm back.

DH has been on clomid since March and his sperm count is up. My RE did a biopsy of my lining and turns out I've had endometritis since my D&C in august and I was put on two successive courses of 4 antibiotics. After getting all that done, we felt like we had fixed all the problems that got in the way of IUIs #3,4,and 5. So we gave it one more shot...I got my bfn today. We're surprised. 20mil sperm, 4 mature follicles, and a rockstar lining. How can that fail? It did.

So I am going to call my nurse tomorrow and ask her for the BCP prescription. Do I start it the sunday after my AF starts (like all the young girls do?) We also need to schedule our final consult and arrange financing.

i think i would go with the 23K option. one question- if it works the first time, can you still do the two more after baby #1 is born? this way you could potentially have more than one baby, if you wanted.

if my RE offered the money back option, i would do the 23K. unfortunately, mine is 14K or so a pop, with no refunds :(
