My IVF deam is finally around the corner. My biggest hurdle has been where to get the money from. I finally built up the gumption to ask my uncle if he can lend us some money. He has agreed to lend us $15,000 which is huge and I totally appreciate it. He asked me if this was a guarantee and how I wish I could say YES.

I wish you the best of luck! I just wanted to tell you about a program (you may know already) that covers a lot of the medication. It was super easy for me to get approved (and I was worried DH and I made too much money). It is EMD Compassionate Care

Thanks everyone for your comments. At first we were thinking of the shared risk package but I don't qualify. My hubby comes home from a week long work trip today and we will try to weight the pros and cons.

Writerofrivers: Oh my gosh, I am totally going to look at this website. I just called the fertility clinic to see if they can send me the prococol that we will be doing so I know what drugs I need. I wanted to price shop but if I could get some for free that would be perfect. The IVF nurse is out today so it will be Monday before it gets sent.

writerofrivers: I checked the website but can't figure out where to download the application. On the page you send (link) it tells you to register and pick a category. I didn't see patient listed at all.It seemed to be only for medical personnel. Do you work in the medical industry? I went to the "patient site" on their website and it doesn't mention Compassionate Care. It only shows where you can save $200 off of gonal. Help!
