Consultation with Fertility Clinic (xp)
Intro on me: I'm Sophia, 40; DH is Kris, 35. We have a 2.5 yo DD, she was conceived naturally approximately 2 years after I received a kidney transplant thanks to my DH who donated one of his kidneys to me.
We have been trying for just over 2 years for DD's sibling(s), and have had 2 cp's during that time. So we've been tested - unexplained fertility (or maybe age-related?) and referred to a fertility clinic.
Which brings me to my question - we are having a consultation with them Tues Sept 27, what should I be asking about fertility options and esp about IUI or IVF or other techniques...? Any advice, knowledge, tips, etc...??
xp - Update on fertility clinic consult.
Sorry ladies, just back to this! My appt at the fertility clinic was ok, we are both "normal" for our ages, meaning that my infertility is mostly due to age, as FSH at 10 is normal at 40 yo. Based on stats, the dr's recommendation was IVF (of course), as stats apparently don't show IUI being any more effective than the old fashioned way. :wink:
I have a pelvic u/s booked for Oct 19 and Day 2 bloodwork to be done probably in the next few days. We have a follow up appt with him in early Nov.
To be honest, I'm not really into IVF *just* to give DD a sibling. Might consider IUI though, I'll have to talk to the dr to see how supportive he is on that. But of course, I may completely change my mind on all this by appt time.
