Hi everyone, it's been awhile since I've posted here. I'd put aside thoughts of having a second child last summer but the feelings are coming back and I'm cautiously dipping my toe into the TTC thing again.
Insurance won't pay for infertility treatments because my highest FSH was over 15. I think at its highest it was 26 but it usually ranged around 11 to 12. I haven't had it tested since last summer though so God only knows where it is today. I cannot justify spending money out of pocket for IVF since the odds are dismal and it would require taking money out of savings that we would like to use for DD. Plus I don't know if I could emotionally go through IVF. I did an IUI and was a basket case.
DH has male factor infertility and I have DOR. DD was conceived after 6 months of trying when I did not have elevated FSH.
Does anyone have any success stories out there for CBFM or "natural" technologies for NaPro?
in my research, fsh levels only have to do with how well you will respond to stimms. others will tell you differently. i had one doctor tell me on the phone that because my fsh was 75 i would not ovulate. while i was talking to him i felt a huge ovulation in my right ovary. i swear it was while i was talking to him. i told him i was ovulating that minute! i'm sure he did not believe me.
if you don't have the money, then just bd at least 3x per week. if there is a good egg you will catch it. you can enhance your chances by doing an oil based hsg, using preseed, softcups.
persistance is key. best of luck.
