Re: my post below...I just contacted my DH Ins. co. again this morning and the Rep tell me that Dh employer doesn't have "Family Planning" Plan- so he can't switch. So basically there goes IVF, because the plan he has now only covers consultation for IVF etc. not the actual treatment. The only soultion I see at this point if he switches to a different Ins. alltogether that covers IVF and that may not even be an option through his employer.


I feel like all the doors have closed on us and I am devastated, can't stop crying. Dh doesn't even know yet- I wanted to avoid added stress because I am ovulating this weekend and will tell him afterwards. I guess maybe we will have to try IUI at 7% chance according to my RE- which is not good at all. Don't even know if I want to put myself through that but not ready to give up either.


I feel totally devastated at the thought of not ever having children. I don't even have neices or nephews....


Thanks for hearing me out ladies.

Oh no, that is terrible. I am so sorry. We would likely not have any children at all if we had not had complete insurance coverage when we needed it most. Right now my DH's insurance at best will only cover part of the expenses of any infertility treatment, from clomid on up, and at the moment, nothing at all. Thankfully my fertility has improved over the years and even though the insurance doesn't cover it now, we are still hopeful doing it on our own. However, we have also been at that spot where we thought we had no options whatsoever, it is so incredibly hard to have all your hopes taken away because of someone else's decision. Very hard. Thankfully we were able to get things sorted out, and I can only hope that you find an answer to your situation somewhere along the way. I would encourage you to tell your DH as soon as you can, you shouldn't be going through this all alone. ((((Hugs))))
