Has anyone tried IVF outside of the United States? I keep reading that the success rates are comparable but that it is much less expensive. I'm just not sure where to start looking. Any experience with this?
I'm not just looking for the cheap way out. My husband and I have paid for 2 fresh cycles, 2 frozen cycles, 3 IUIs and are now on an IUI with injectibles. We have used every spare dollar we have to try and have a baby and are looking for any possiblity. If that means going to another country, I'm ready and willing.
TTC Baby #2
Me - 30; Husband - 35; MFI due to spinal chord injury
1st Baby - 3 years old - conceived naturally in prior relationship
IVF #1 - BFN (9/09/08)
3 Frozen Embryos Left - started meds in November
Transferred 2 5dpt (1 didn't survive the big chill) embryos on December 17th; 12/31 - BFN
EFT in Feb 09 - slight endometriosis; laproscopy removed endo and scar tissue from 1st c-section.
IVF #3 - BFP but miscarriage and D&C
Miscarriage - D&C
2 frozens transferred in December 2009 - BFN. No more $$ for IVF.
Now using donor sperm for IUI
1st IUI - February 2010 - Clomid but only 1 follicle - BFN
2nd IUI - March 23, 2010 - Femora but unclear how many follicles
