I'm a first time poster, so you'll have to bear with me! My partner and I (both female) are debating our next steps after TTC for 6 months - I would love a little advice from those who have experienced it!
We decided that I would carry and after all the relevant tests, I am told I'm fairly healthy (31yrs/no known fertility issues). We have been through 3 x IUIs with anonymous donor sperm - all attempts unsuccessful. The next question is do we ditch IUI and go to IVF. We are with Dr Clarke at Fertility First and love the nurses there - everyone so far has been great.
DP thinks IVF is the answer, but I'm still hesitant I feel pretty emotionally drained from the last 3 times we've tried - and I'm concerned that IVF will take even more of a toll plus drain us financially. DP is 4 years younger than me and probably not in as much of a rush as I am to get pg. Babies are being born all around me and it's getting harder to get excited for other people!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated - I feel a little alone in all this....DP just wants to make a decision and get on with it.
