Starting my 2nd cycle and was informed that I've met my lifetime fertility medication max and that I'd have to pay over 10k out of pocket for the medication this cycle. Are there other options / avenues I can pursue or do I have no choice at this time?

Ask for the out of pocket cost - much less than the amount they charge to insurance

Don’t buy oop from CVS Caremark. For Freedom or Alto pharmacy, the typical IVF drugs will cost $5,300 oop.

Which insurance do you have?

UHC High Deductible Plan

SO anxious about our Embryo transfer. I’m 38, low ovarian reserve-ended up with 1 good embryo. Terrified after reading about miscarriages after a successful transfer. I know it’s selfish considering I already have a child, but not being close to my family/my husband not having a big family- it’s super important for my son to have a sibling. 1. Aside from acupuncture, how did you cope with stress? 2. If you’re partner isn’t willing to go through another cycle- what is your contingency plan?

Looking for some success stories. My friend transferred a PGA tested embryo but baby stopped growing at 7 weeks - right after hearing the heartbeat. She was initially told that the sac was measuring small and to drink a lot of water. She’s still not sure if that caused the MC. She’s scared of trying again. Anyone have a successful pregnancy after miscarrying a healthy embryo?
