    concerned and confused and starting IVF

    Hi, I had my saline ultrasound yesterday and Dr said it looked pretty good but my uterus is so far tipped back that it's almost upside down. He said this shouldn't be an issue but it seems odd to me. We are doing IVF because I have one son with hemophilia and had a very rough pregnancy with him, bed rest, threatened miscarriage, and multiple other issues, and have had multiple miscarriages. 1 prior to my son after trying for over a year, then 1 in 2011 after trying for a year and then 1 this past January after trying for another year. My dr suggested doing IFV because then we can test for the condition or do gender selection before transfer as he thinks my immune system may be attacking male embryos. I have extremely high antibodies and when I do manage to get pregnant I have to take heparin and aspirin to help control it to have a chance of maintaining pregnancy. He set me up to start femara with my next cycle then said we'd do an ultrasound and egg retrieval. Everything I've read seems to say you're usually on several meds and femara usually only results in 1 follicle. So now I'm confused. What's standard? Should I be concerned? Sorry this is so long I'm just trying to wrap my head around it all and looking for advice
