My sister in law has been trying since she was 39 to get pregnant. She is now 42 with 4 failed IVF's under their belt.Her and her DH were out of money for IVF but could afford to pay for a few IUI's. Obviously alot less medication and medical expense. In the past 3 years her doctor did all kinds of tests and could never actually find any reason for infertility except for her age, he agreed to give the IUI's a try. Today she called me with her very first BFP at 42!!!!!!!

IVF#1 March 2010 GonalF, Cetrotide, Menopur.
23 follicles 19 eggs 13 mature 7 fertilized 2 blasts none to freeze. No Pregnancy.
IVF#2 July 2010 Lupron Gonal F Menopur
