I went the ivf route which didn’t result in a pregnancy. I don’t have issues getting pregnant naturally (have a good Iberian reserve) but I am older and have had a few miscarriages. My doctor just recommended that I go with iui cycles instead of ivf at this point. Is this strange advice?

Yes sounds like terrible advice - IUI isn’t going to diagnose your recurrent miscarriages. What testing, genetic and immune, are they recommending to get to the root of the issue?

Sounds like you could be a good candidate for IVF with PGT-A testing.

I second the extra testing- drs waited until my third consecutive miscarriage, despite my request to do it sooner- for genetic testing for both my husband and I- which was like $600 out of pocket in total for the tests. Turns out there WAS a genetic issue and then we had to turn to IVF. But a lot of lost time. Literally years.

I can’t remember exact name of test but it was done through Natera. I’ve also done a few other blood work too, and as part of my current IVF cycle I’m getting PGT A test
