I am new to this board. I have been on ttc after a stillbirth for the last 14 months. I lost my son Jake at 38 weeks in May 2009 due to a cord accident. I was able to get pregnant very easily with him, but now, 2 years later I have low ovarian reserve. My amh is .4, and we have been ttc for 12 cycles now. I tried 3 rounds of clomid with no luck. So now the docs say I need to try IVF.
We are a little overwhelmed by the cost. Is there any tips on where to get meds cheaper? Also, my doctor does not offer financing, did anyone get loans or assistance for IVF? Our insurance pays for nothing. Also, I am so worried about taking the meds, they are giving me the highest dose because of my low amh. I did have 9 follicles yesterday. 4 on one ovary and 5 on the other. Is that good?
When I read the posts on here it seems that many women have to do many IVF cycles before they get pregnant, is that the norm?
This last year has been horrible, mourning the loss of my son probably has not helped with ttc. I am turning 39 and my DH is 41. Sometimes it seems there is no Hope, but we are trying to remain positive. It was such a cruel twist of fate to lose Jake, he was fine one day and gone the next. We had a scheduled induction, I woke up ready to meet him that day, never expecting I would be saying good bye. I know a new baby will never replace for Jake, but it sure would help fill the agonizing hole that he left behind. There is nothing worse than giving birth in silence, when all you want to hear is the scream of a baby that is not to be.
Thanks for any help you can offer. I wish everyone the best of luck.
