so many questions

I have no idea what to do. Maybe I should do nothing. Here are the issues.

I can’t do an iui after all– I maxed out the number they’ll let me do because I’m a clear candidate for IVF and have the benefits.

So should I try this month at home? That means no meds and I’m not sure if that’s even a possibility because it’s never worked for me in the past.

Or I could wait and do suppression this month and IVF next. That means that I’ll possibly doing an egg retrieval/transfer about the 2nd week in April. The problem is that we’re going on vacation the following week and I refuse to cancel. I’ve put way too much on hold with ttc and I don’t want to do it anymore. Also, I’m supposed to be taking comp exams for grad school mid-April (they haven’t given us a date), and I don’t want an egg retrieval/transfer to coincide with that.

Maybe I need to take this as a sign that once again, it’s not my time to be getting pregnant.

I have no idea what to do.

    Wow, that’s tough. I’m sorry you’re having to go through this.

    If I were in your shoes, I would probably do the at home insemination this cycle. It sounds like forcing the IVF would really be an extra stressful thing considering everything else you’ve got going on in April. I think you are right to put it off. Do an at home try, and if it doesn’t work, have a suppression cycle planned for April. That way, you’ll either be preggo for your vacay, or be able to party a little and not worry about it!

    Best wishes!

    if it was me (and it was me last year), and this is just me, i’d probably just wait until may to get on board with another ivf cycle. i’d use the time in between to heal my body/soul.

    BUT i used frozen sperm and, to me, an at-home insemination would just feel like $500 down the drain. i don’t remember if i’ve read whether you have a KD or not. if i were using a known donor, i would probably do an at-home insemination now while making plans for a may ivf cycle.

      Thanks for that perspective as well. We are using frozen swimmers so that is another consideration.

    I am so sorry to hear that, this has been so stressful for you I know. Idk I would probably do home insemination. I know it hasn’t worked in the past however you never know??? NO matter what you decide I am in support of YOU!

    Yes, this sounds like a great idea. Enjoy your vacation time with the love and bean while giving your body some much deserved rest.
