Anyone here around age 41 and still trying to conceive? I've already been through several rounds of IVF to no avail. I'm lost, broken and confused as to do I still continue at this age. Am I too old?

Will be in downtown Chicago for day 8 u/s for IVF follicle count/measurement. Can you share recommendations of fertility clinics for ultrasound near Mag Mile or River North?

Has anyone done testing to determine the dose of Clomid necessary for ovulation and not tried to get pregnant till later on? If so, at one point do you have to repeat fertility testing?

SO & I have been trying for 1yr with no results. We’re starting to consult with RE in Chicago from Northwestern but heard from friends that they preferred FCI. Any reviews for either/recommendations?

Second FET scheduled for mid-Jan. This is our last embryo. Anything I should be doing/avoiding in the weeks leading up to it and after? Already doing acupuncture.

Had a quick question about anyone’s experience with WIN fertility / Freedom Pharmacy and the medication benefit. We just got the call from Freedom and they said our first round of IVF drugs are $9,000

Im a single 31F. Had a recent rough breakup and don’t think I would date anytime soon. I knew I definitely want kids in the future and am thinking if I should freeze my eggs and at what age. Thoughts?

Was considering going to South India next year but saw that it was a level 2 warning (same as the US) with current or past cases of Zika but no new ones. We’re currently trying - should we risk it?

Anyone here struggle with getting their first period after getting off BC after many years? Have PCOS and history of irregularity so I’m hoping it’s just a normal temporary set back

Has anyone done acupuncture in the weeks leading up to FET? How was your experience? The data’s not great on this topic, figured I’d try to get some anecdotes here too.

Been trying for 2 years, started the fertility doctor tests, then lost coverage. Just got it back and did a “reset” appointment at fertility clinic, only to find out I’m pregnant. The irony!

Wanted to share... after 3 surgeries to prep for IVF and 4 failed IVFs we decided to go with an egg donor option. And today I have just received a call they found us a donor matching my phenotype. 🎉
