IUI big suprise

So, another attempt and another failure. Not a big suprise to us given the odds of success that we were given, but still not a happy thing for sure. I think we have decided to not do any more IUIs given that the more you do without success, the worse your odds become of succeeding. I feel it would be somewhat foolish and irresponsible to spend a $1000 here and there just to give us a sense of hope from time to time. I feel we are better off trying to save the $21,000 that it will take to do the fertility treatment that all of the REs recommend for us (IVF with PGD). Given the amount of money it will require to even try, it will be a VERY long time before we move forward with this process....we'll see when we can actually make it happen. Time is not going to be kind in this equation since after the age of 35 (for women) the odds get worse. Oh well. We will continue to try on our own in the interim and hold onto hope for our chance at a miracle.

I am so sorry that things didn't work out for you this cycle. I know that even though you have a good idea of what is going to happen there is still hope. The hope of it maybe working-which is why you do it. I know how it feels to get a BFN and spend the money. It stinks really bad!!! I hope that you will be able to get in to do the IVF sooner than you think and get the little miracle you deserve!!!!
