If you search you'll find this same question asked many times in this bowl, with the majority advocating to move to IVF.

I personally skipped IUI altogether, due to the low success rates. Sending you baby dust for whatever you decide!

Yes, personally moved on after two. Understand it’s a very personal decision based on number of factors including specific fertility issues, timing/scheduling, and finances. But more often than not, anecdotally, most people wish they moved onto IVF sooner. Also consider that unless you & your partner are open to using egg donors in the future if needed, one’s own egg quality is at its “best” at present. Now, not later.

What worries you about ivf? Why the reluctance?

Yeah, I moved on after 3 IUI.

We moved on after one and half iui. In the ivf process now
