Welcome, Lisa! Like several other posters, I never tried OE IVF but went straight to DE after 6 failed IUIs. The odds with DE seemed so much better at my age (43 then), and in fact we are now blessed with a 6-month-old boy. I found this board (and the "pink board") during my 2ww, and it has been a godsend. It's good to be among women who share this journey. I wish you all the best and look forward to hearing more from you.
