I saw Check at 40 1/2 and he said that we don't need IVF; we can get pregnant on TI in one year, 75% likelihood. After the doom and gloom and DE speech by our first RE we were thrilled. My DH was not keen on IVF and not as desperate as me for a baby (he already has 2 children) and we decided to do home renovations in 2011 DH wanted which ate up a lot of our money, energy and caused more stress.
Well, here it is, almost 1 year later and no BFPs. I tried IVF in January with Cooper, and a trial meds cycle in December, but their protocol is not suppressing my dominant follicle and they won't change it. I cancelled the IVF. I am moving to another RE which is very time consuming and hope to do IVF next month.
I regret that I waited so long to be aggressive. You never know; TI might have worked. But it didn't. Last year I had 8-10 AFC every cycle. Now I'm 41 1/2, the AFC is really declining, and I really think we should have done IVF last year after just a few failed TI cycles.
