I've been lurking for awhile and thought I would introduce myself. I'm Allison (32) and DH is Jeremy (31). We've been TTC #2 since July 2007 with 1 m/c. I was diagnosed with stage 3 endo in May after a lap. All endo and scaring was removed at that time. One of my tubes was twisted and aheard to the back of my uterius, but according to my RE it was fixed during the lap. We had 3 clomid/IUI cycles before the lap. We had 5 "natural" cycles after the lap. This past cycle we did Femara/IUI. My RE was wanting to do another cycle of the Femara/IUI, but we feel like we're throwing our money away with IUIs because this last cycle DH had a 7 billion count s/a (yes, billion!). So, after 2.5 years, we are ready to move to IVF.

So, I called today and made an appt for an IVF consultation! Our appt is this coming Monday, the 21st. I'm soooo nervous! I don't think we're going to be ready to start this until about March because we have to get all our funds together. What should we expect at our IVF consultation?

Even though I've done IVF, I don't recall a "consultation"....we made the decision after another wasted cycle...I was lying on the exam table and basically said "THAT'S IT, I want to do IVF".....

I assume they will discuss protocol....the meds they will use, the monitoring you will undergo, answer any questions you have and talk to you about payment...... GOOD LUCK!

oh its exciting you are getting in so quickly. I am with you, we had such good sperm counts, we felt we were wasting money with the IUI.

I had to go alone bc dh had to work, but my consult was pretty good. However it was also a new dr. but we mostly talked about his policies as far as when he would stop a cycle, how many he would put back in, and prices.

Please clarify with good sperm counts you felt you were wasting money with IUI .... just curious, my DH has very slight abnormal morph. but counts good & when we chatted with RE for the 1st time yesterday he suggested trying Clomid+IUI ??? So now you have me confused ! Thanks
