Hello! I'm coming over from the Clomid boards. Here is some background......DH and I have been TTC for 19 months and have gone through 8 medicated cycles (More details in my signature) all resulting in BFN's. The problem seems to be with me as I O sporadically on my own. DH had a couple of low sperm counts with IUI's but any other time it was checked the SA said it was in normal range! We had the IVF Protocol consult this morning and the RE said he was not concerned with DH's sperm counts. He suggested that we could do a LAP first and then do IVF or do one cycle first then if it doesn't work, do a LAP. (We have the "Cadillac" insurance plan as the nurse told us, so cost for IVF isn't a huge problem. Thank God!!) The RE said it was up to me which to do first and I chose to do one cycle first, then a LAP, if necessary. I'm on BCP's right now. We have a baseline appt on Dec. 27th to have all the preliminary tests done and sign all the consent forms. We are looking at the week of January 21st as the week of the ER and ET!!!! I'm nervous and excited at the same time!!

Me-24 DH-38 Did 3 rounds of Clomid, 5 rounds of Femara and 3 IUI's, all BFN's. Preparing for IVF in January.
