hi all and thanks for listening. this roller coaster has been all but encouraging. I am 45 (gasp!!!) and just went to a new RE closer to home. He basically said the same thing to me, "you will probably not get PG with IUI or IVF - I recommend egg donor". that is really hard for me to hear. I have done 2 IUIs this year so far. He says the chance of my eggs (I produced about 7 eggs under injections and 3-4 were fully stimulated) being healthy enough to create a healthy baby are slim. As I wept I felt confused whether or not to really believe him and trust him and work with my so-called best shot and give up my conceiving my biological child, or looking at him and defy the statistics - UGH!! I feel the longer I wait the harder it is becoming. I am going to go to one other RE in town to see if at least I feel a better fit. I know I can not expect them to say "oh no problem we can get you pregnant" but I am so discouraged by this news. I would like to try the IVF. He said many women try IVF 3-4 times - WOW that sounds expensive and really hard on the body.

HELP!! any suggestions
