Hi, it's looking like I am going to have to try IVF in order to conceive. Can anyone give me a little insight into it? Such as which meds your doc prescribed for you? My doctor is basically no help! I went to her looking for advice as to if I should keep trying IUI's for awhile longer of just go straight to IVF. She basically said it was up to me. When we started talking about what meds I would use, again she said it was up to me. We could use any meds we wanted. I was looking to use follistim or Gonal-f. I could also just stick with the menopur. If I am putting all of this money into IVF and the meds, I want to get a ton of eggs! My partner's insurance will pay for 1/2 of the IVF cost and 1/2 of the med cost. I'm really grateful but it is still going to cost us $6000-$8000 for 1 cycle. It will all be worth it if it results in a baby! Another question I have for you all is if you know if taking fertility meds will make your pap test come back abnormal? It's a long story but basically my sample was missing a certain cell and my midwife's office said it happens in less than 10% of people and it means either menopause or pregnancy. I had a second pap test and it came back fine. I was just curious! Thanks for the info!
