SO: Alan
Any kids: No - just our furbaby Shilo (3 year old doberman mix)
Current Cycle Plan: On Lupron and waiting on AF so I can start my first IVF cycle
Reason for MA (or waiting to ttcwma): Diagnosed with "Unexplained infertility." My FSH is slightly high
Do you have any limits as to how far you will go? We are currently participating in an IVF clinical trial in NY. If this doesn't work we will probably try IVF once or twice more at our regular clinic before considering adoption. Three IVF cycles is probably my limit.

Current Cycle Plan: just finished first IVF cycle awaiting the DREADED BETA

SO: DH (he doesn't like his name on the internet...)
Any kids: 2 angels
Current Cycle Plan: Just had clomid + trigger + IUI #1 last week. Awaiting results.
Reason for MA: Unexplained RPL, possibly progesterone issue? Everything else checked out great. I responded great to the clomid challenge, and RE wanted to take advantage. We did the IUI bc of possible CM issues as a result of the clomid.
Do you have any limits as to how far you will go? We cannot do much past IUI - no IVF for us bc of the finances involved. We have zero IF coverage. At this point, we can't wrap our heads around adoption, so if we can't get PG, we will live happily as a family of 2 with some future furbabies.

SO: hubby not fan of name on internet; one of the only people i know not on facebook
Any kids: 1 wonderful kittie cat
Current Cycle Plan: going tomorrow to get prescription for trigger shot and US to see how big follicles are; last week i had 6 follicles btwn 7 - 11 mm; IUI will be this week - 2nd one, 1st in 12/10 and
Reason for MA (or waiting to ttcwma): i guess that my age is a big factor; will be 37 this year and have not been able to get pg on our own; had a myomectomy a couple of years ago, and, unfortunately, the fibroids usually come back so it is important to get things rolling; everything has checked out w us so far; i did have a blood test done that measures ovarian reserve and my score was literally just above normal, so, not fantastic
Do you have any limits as to how far you will go? - we are going to do 3 IUIs and then i will consider IVF, but, wouldnt do it forever, due to all the hormones; not clear on time frames for trying; i would definitely adopt

Current Cycle Plan: 100mg Clomid, trigger, preseed, possible IUI
Reason for MA (or waiting to ttcwma): Started out as RPL and was followed by annovulatory cycles
Do you have any limits as to how far you will go? This is pretty much it. I'm going to ask at my next appointment if he'll allow any more Clomid cycles (and how many more). He won't give Femera and we can't afford injectibles. We plan on moving one to adoption in the near future.

Current Cycle Plan: Femara with injectible HCG on IUI day which will be Mar. 15.
Reason for MA (or waiting to ttcwma): Unexplained. I'm 38 and DH is 37.
Do you have any limits as to how far you will go? Not really although IVF is very costly and we are hoping not to go there. I would also like to adopt one day regardless of whether we conceive.

Reason for MA (or waiting to ttcwma):2 losses, some morph issues with DH. Otherwise we have just been trying for 17 cycles with no luck
Do you have any limits as to how far you will go? im scared to think about doing IVF but i would try, prolly not more than twice. Right now money wise we are limited to not doing anything. Need to save up more money or get a loan when the time comes.

Any kids:4.5 yr old girl
Current Cycle Plan: waiting for af. Femera, hcg trigger, and progesterone supplement til July is our plan
Reason for MA (or waiting to ttcwma):LPD, pg loss
Do you have any limits as to how far you will go? Til July when our insurance rolls over (they are paying near 100% bc we hit our deductible and only way we could afford this). My Ob plans to refer me to an re at that point. But dh and I are not comfortable with iui or ivf. I don't know what we will do in July. If we don't have a bfp I'd like to look into adopting within the year or foster care.
