Well, I’ve made my decision – next step will be IVF.
Weighing everything up, it didn’t seem like IUI would be a viable option for me. The specialist told me IVF is three times more likely to work than IUI (35% vs. 12%) and as much as it seems like a huge step to go from trying naturally to IVF, at my age I don’t want to waste any more valuable time.
So I’ve booked an appointment with the fertility specialist on Friday to talk through the process and the timing.
I can’t quite believe it’s got to this stage, it just feels so surreal. I also feel very ignorant about it – I need to do more research but I’d really appreciate any help any of you can give me with the sort of things I should be thinking about and the questions I should ask the specialist on Friday...
If you have any advice/suggestions, please leave them via the comments below.
Thanks so much!
Until next time.
