Hello Ladies....I am looking for some honest advice.

I will be 42 in September of this year and I am looking to start a IVF cycle in August.

Hi mom_mimi, welcome to the board! You have been through so much, my heart goes out to you with making this decision. I guess the only thing I kept asking when reading your story was how you would feel if you didn't give it one last shot, would it be a decision you can make peace with down the road?

If you can give it one more shot and it's not in the cards, then maybe you'll have some closure in the fact that you tried. It's such a tough decision though, wish you all the best in making it.
