DH and I have been talking. After losing our youngest this summer, we both are now regretting my complete tubal ligation. So I know that if we really decide to go for this again that we will need medical help. I know of IVF, but is there any thing else out there. I hope that I am not stepping on anyones toes by asking this here.
I am so sorry for your loss!!!
You could go straight to IVF, but some doctors might want to try a reversal procedure first if that is possible. And it might depend on what your insurance covers too. If you don't mind my asking, what procedure did you have done for the ligation?
My first tubal failed. That was done during my c-section with #3. The next one, I barely remember signing the consent. I was in a lot of labor pain and completely scared. I was 25 weeks when she was born. They completely took out all of my tubes. So there is no chance for reversal. Unless I am really that far behind on TTC technolgy.
Ah, I understand now - I don't have tubes either, I lost both of mine with ruptured ectopic pregnancies, so yep, IVF is the way to go. Unfortunately many insurances (like ours) do not cover IVF and it can be very expensive. There's quite a few ladies pg right now from IVF, and our first try at it is tentatively scheduled for mid-November, just waiting for my cycle to start, which *should* be today but no signs of her yet.
Here's the link of the place we chose: http://www.ivf-indiana.com/ They have a TON of info on their website, check out the Patient Education page, much more info online than any other facility I researched, and MUCH cheaper than any places closer to us. We're in MN and this place is in IN, so we'll be traveling, and even with travel expenses we're saving at the very least $4300 for anything closer. The RE is great too, you don't have to go thru a nurse to get questions/messages to him - you can email him directly, which is nice.
Hi sweetie! Sounds like IVF is your only option. I would start researching drs in your area & get going on the 1st consult. It is a long road to travel & w/ it is attached several emotions but well worth it in the end!
