    Default TTC 22 Months - No clue what to do now :(

    Im 22 months ttc, I have had every test youc ould possible think of... 2 x Hysterosalpingogram (OUCH!!!) Very painful and i just had a Laporoscopy to rule out Endometriosis as i had this removed twice as a teenager. I am only 32 and have 2 children already 10 years and 5 years. Laporoscopy showed NO endometriosis however they took a biospsy of my uterus (But i cant get into the specialist until 9 weeks time) to get the results. Not sure why they did a biopsy in the first place. What does everyone think my next step should be IVF?? Hubby has been checked and he is fine. So frustrating. I check my LH every month.. I always seem to get a darker line on the dipsticks but when i do, i go out and buy the Clear Blue digital OV Tester and always get a negative. This is costing me lots of money. Thoughts would be appreciated.. Are IVF costs needed to be paid up front and then you claim the medicare rebate? Or do you just pay the Gap?

    I forgot to mention that I had the Depo Provera Injections 2 1/2 years ago.. Only two rounds.. Could this cause my infertility?

    Hi Sadelsie

    Hmmm...sounds like a bit of a mystery. Don't know anything about depo provera injections i'm afraid. I would probably suggest you make an appointment to see atleast two fertility specialists and ask their advice. Always good to get a second opinion. If its comes down to a choice between IUI and IVF then I would recommend IVF given you've already being trying for 22mths.

    Buying ovulation and pregnancy test kits from the chemist can cost a lot!! Have a look at buying them online as its much cheaper. I bought a whole heap from www.pregnancyshop.com.au

    As for paying for IVF this will depend on the clinic. Have a look at the sticky thread on IVF $$$..clinic comparisons -lots of good info there. At Genea they charge whole amount to your credit card or deduct from account and then medicare rebate is deposited a few days later.

    When you start looking into clinics and FSs think about the questions you'd like to ask...for eg does the FS carry out procedures or is this done by someone else, what days is the clinic open for transfers and egg collection (ideally 7days a week), what are the locations for blood collection and scans (sometimes you might to have these tests done every second day so it needs to be relatively convenient for you), what are the locations for egg collection and embryo transfer.

    Best of luck
