Me 38 DH 41( husband has 2 adult children 21 & 19 from a previous relationship)

Feb 2014 DH dx azoospermia consult to Heartland
May 2014 plan is for ivf after initial tests etc
June 2014 bloodwork normal for me HSG shows possible unicornuate uterus!!!
U/S and MRI for me
Oct 2014 results from scans inconclusive.... laparoscopy January 2015
still waiting for U/S for DH...results to follow January 2015
So frustrated with this whole process... can we run into anymore roadblocks?

Costco may be cheaper but do they always carry the meds you need, and don't have to special order?

Does anyone know if Heartland offers 'soft' ivf, or a low dose ivf? I've read that, while it results in less eggs, the eggs that are retrieved are better quality for women in their late 30's? Thanks!
