VIRTUAL CONSULTANT

We had our first ever consultation with a Reproductive Specialist. Not the news we wanted to hear. At first the Doctor said we can try IUI but after discovering we had tried 5 medicated cycles with Clomid and been using home insemination the last 5 cycles, his suggestion was to not waste money on IUIs and jump straight into IVF. I was hoping we did not have to go down either of these paths. Now, I do not know what to do. This cycle we can't start anything since I just started. He said we could still try IUIs if that is something we want to attempt but he was not hopeful of that.

At a crossroads and not sure if we should go left or right.

The hubs and I have a plan. We decided to take the IUI route for atleast 3 cycles. We also decided to wait till January for the first IUI. I was raring to go for my December cycle but decided that with the holidays and needing to save up money, it would be best to wait. Plus, I am still hoping for a miracle and that we can get pregnant naturally between now and the January cycle. Also. It gives me time to get some weight off me. I think knowing there is a plan and path for us makes me feel a little more relaxed. I actually feel peaceful about it.

I know you said clomid didn't help, for me I started taking Inositol on the advise of my doctor. We had been trying for years and never got pregnant. The first month I took it I got pregnant. I suffered a few losses because of other issues, but in all I got pregnant 3 times in 6 months on the inositol.

I thought I'd mention since its over the counter, no side effects, and you're waiting to try the IUI.

The doctor recommended ovalsitol. I will start taking that per his recommendation plus do the Dr. KILTZ'S B.E.B.B.I diet. Bacon, eggs, butter, beef, and ice cream. He runs the CNY fertility clinic which is the one we are going too.
