I am new to this board so I wanted to introduce myself.
I am 38 and my DH and I are diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We tried on our own naturally for over 1 year. Have been doing acupuncture for fertility for 1 year and have done 1 natural IUI and 1 clomid 100 IUI, both BFN.
We are doing one more climid IUI this cycle and want to make a decision about moving to IVF. We may try the injectables IUI but not sure how much success that would have. If anyone has experience or stories or guidance to share, it would be amazing because we are trying to make the right choice.
I have a high AMH and good levels all around and make good eggs....not sure if this matters as we still don't get preggos....thanks in advance!!!
I was in exactly the same boat as you at 38. We had our DS naturally and then we tried naturally for 2 years to get pregnant and no luck. After two failed IUI's (one was a miscarriage at 6 weeks) we moved to IVF. We didn't get as many embryos as we hoped but it only takes one good one! I'm currently 25 weeks along with baby #2 after the second IVF transfer. As others have said, if you can afford to go to IVF, I highly recommend it. It's not easy with all the injections etc... but worth it! Good Luck!
