I'm new on this board but have been reading your comments with interest. I could really use some advice now, and would appreciate any comments (pro or con) on our situation.
My husband (51) and I (44) have an adorable two year old, conceived "naturally" three years ago with little trouble. Now we are struggling for #2. I have had three miscarriages in the last year. I have undergone fertility treatment with injectables the last two months (intercourse only, no IUI). No success the first month and, I already suspect, this month either. We are trying to decide whether or not it is worth trying IVF at this point.
I'm handling and responding to the injections fairly well, although the cost of all of this is adding up and the emotional toll is growing. I know the statistics on a successful IVF at my age are not great; still, it's hard to stop completely without giving it at least one try. When do you decide that "enough is enough?"
