My husband and I are 24 and 26 and have been TTC for 1 1/2 years. We decided to try IVF last month and they retrieved 11 eggs and by day 5 transfer we only had 2 viable embies to transfer in. Sadly we got a a BFN 2 weeks later. We were devestated.
We have had all sorts of testing. I have been deemed normal besides having polycystic ovaries, but not PCOS. My husband was perfect! So we are unexplained...which is SO irritating!
We are considering trying Follistism with a trigger shot and natural intercourse. A friend of mine did this and had success with it after 3 cycles and is now pregnant with twins.
I think the IVF may have been too invasive on my body and stressed it out too much. Im hoping this new method will be less stressfull on my body and mind and we will be able to relax a bit more.
