They will be aggressive as you want. Some like to jump right in to IVF. Depending on your age and diagnosis that would be silly to do. I am older so my treatments where aggressive at first but not to expensive because we knew we needed IVF/ICSI/Egg donor. We didn't want to spend months and months spending 2,000 a month when we needed to put that money towards IVF.
If you do end up going to IVF (I hope you don't) it's a good idea to have all tests done and over with specially since your insurance will pay for the diagnostic part.
I feel like it is fair to monitor you for a month not medicated while checking you blood work, SA and HSG –then if all looks good start some mild meds with IUI or timed intercourse. Remember every cycle even if a BFN is a learning cycle for your RE. They gather more and more information about you and DH each time to help you finally achieve your BFP and take home baby.
Me (43) DH(33) 12 years together - ttc our first together-I have 14yr old DS
Cycles 1-6 = BFN
Cycle 7 SA results abnormal morphology 2%, 50 mg clomid = BFN
Cycle 8 sonogram normal 50 mg clomid + trigger = BFN
Cycle 9 SA results abnormal morphology and motility. Count 200 mill, 100mg clomid + trigger = BFN
Cycle 10 natural = BFN
Cycle 11 hsg tubes clear, natural + trigger+IUI = BFN
Cycle 12 repronex + trigger + 2 IUI = BFN
Cycle 13 natural ovaries to stimulated for more meds = BFN
Cycle 14-22 natural cycle with Acupuncture and planning ivf/icsi/DE = ALL BFN
Cycle 23 Clomid 50 mg & Progesterone = BFN
Cycle 24 Natural = BFN
Cycle 25 BCP, SA result 7% morphology = BFN
Cycle 26 BCP and Lupron preparing for IVF
Cycle 27 IVF Acupuncture, DE Retrieval April 7, Transfer April 12 =
7 eggs retrieved, 3 fertilized, 2 transferred - zero snow babies
BETA # 1 16DPO or 11dp5dt = 569
