Well, friends, I don't know how much longer I'll be here at the MDC boards.
Went to the RE again this morning after 9 failed IUI attempts, four of them on Clomid, and still not pg.
RE advised laparoscopy , then injectable hormones .
The laparoscopy I can handle - it's kind of scary, but I might have endo or something that she could fix. It will also likely be covered by my insurance.
BUT.........If she finds nothing obviously wrong, she will say "do the injectables". There is no way that I can do injectables. The cost of the hormones alone she told me is around $1000 per month, and is *not* covered by my insurance. On top of the already $500 or so I spend per month on IUI and bloodwork this is impossible. I'm not made of money. I already work a second job just to support my ttc habit!!
Soooooooo....... I will probably have the lap done next month sometime (assuming, and it's a safe assumption, that the IUI I have done this Thursday doesn't work). If my doctor still finds nothing wrong, I think I am going to have to stop ttc and seek other means of having children in my life. This is heartbreaking for me. One of my friends has been saving baby clothes for me for a year now.
It hurts me too much to continue to come here as much as I have been this past year, now that I have so little hope left. Best of luck to all of you in your ttc adventures - may all your dreams come true!
