I have a 2 year old daughter that was conceived in 2004 after 3 IUI's. I keep reminding myself that I was blessed with my daughter, but was hoping for a 2nd child. My dh has male factor, so in addition to IVF, we would have to do the ICSI.

not sure waht icsi is.

I couldn't help myself,Beth.ICSI -it's like aranged marriage :)-they pick the most mobile and good looking swimmer and inject it right into the egg-,so want it or not-it's there inside the egg.We did the same because of the sperm issues(like penetration,low amount,etc)

oh okay


Arabsrcool - December 18


yep, thats a great way to describe ICSI. I was such a dummy, I didn't realize how lucky I was when the IUI worked in 2004. I wasn't that up on counts, motility etc etc. Now I understand that was probably a once in a lifetime success and my best hope of concieving would be with IVF and ICSI. However financially its not a possiblity and I'm not getting any younger.

Congrats on being pg. did you do IVF?

I think i may go crasy before getting off bedrest. I hate having no one to talk to during the day and nothing good on tv.

I GOT INTO THE IVF STUDY!!!!!!!. I am so excited and also scared now. Wow IVF has alot more meds than IUI and the whole egg retrieval thing has me worried.


hang in there, it will worth it, but I understand you are having a hard time with bed rest. There is only so much tv one can watch.

I can't seem to start a new thread so I figured I'd try posting a reply in order to ask everyone a question. Has anyone who has gone through fertility treatments that failed gone on to taking matters into their own hands? I've been thinking about buying meds on the internet and then just going through the same protocol I was doing at the fertility clinic. I'm sure I'll get a lot of negative feedback on that, but I'm sure I'm not the first to think of it or try it and if someone else has, did it work? I know my problem is strictly hormonal but visits to the clinics are costing me a fortune. The only thing that I can say I wouldn't get is the ultrasounds to see what my response is. Has anyone else done this too?


bdantonio - October 19

Due to the increase in hormones with fertility drugs its extremely risky.
