Are there recommendations on articles about the baby making process? I’m really new to this and the internet seems full of conflicting information :( I want to know things like the best position, do I need stay out after, how often for optimal results etc. I’m 36 and the biological clock ticking is driving me nuts

Just went through ER and feeling very deflated. Only 4 eggs retrieved and they think I went through early ovulation. I’m 33F and all other results have been normal/had plenty of follicles (10 of size, 10 smaller). This is worst than what I was expecting. It’s only my first round but already thinking how I’m going to have to do this again. I’m thinking of traveling to some of the better known clinics - anyone know the name of the one in Colorado that is very popular for its lab? Is it CCRM?

Has anyone been advised to get genetic counseling for breast/ovarian cancer during their initial fertility meeting? Specialist seems to be pushing the tests based on background. Has anyone actually gone through the process? My understanding is there could be some implications down the line on life insurance. I understand early detection is important. I prefer not being surprised down the line with insurance and wondering if anyone has any experience with this?
