Im new here and im happy to find this site. There are still a lot of things running thru my mind and im an emotional wreck right now :(

 Im 32 years old and my hubby is 33. We had been ttc for almost 2 years,  our RE is recommending to do IVF. We are scheduled to do it this month just waiting for my period to begin.  I had unexplained infertility, been irregular all my life.All my lab results came out ok, we just dont why its not working. 

We had 5 cycles of clomid and it dint work. Im still a little bit confused that our RE recommended IVF right away.He said IUI wont work for us ( we have not even try it yet)....

Do you think its best just to go to IVF?im scared and i don't know what to do. Our insurance will cover everything. Im scared of the out come. After reading some of the failed IVF here, im freaking out more.

Thank you in advance for your advices. It will be alot of help for me.

Good Luck to everybody and God Bless.
