Thank you CSK - we're starting IVF (2 weeks into meds, fun, fun). First try. We've been trying to conceive for 2 years with 0 success, 5 IUI's...etc. Everyone seems to have a reason for not conceiving, it's hard when they can't find anything wrong. I was encouraged that you're in the same boat. 0 pregnancies, 0 reasons for not conceiving and success. Thank you!

Our doctor counseled us that if time is of the essence, because Fresh cycles have better probability of success, do fresh cycles first to maximize probability of at least one baby. If time is not the issue and you want to avoid dilemmas of frozen possibly-viable embryos then alternate. Discuss with your doctor.

Due to my age, 41, we did three fresh cycles back to back. Age was our only known fertility issue. After trying naturally for nine months we went straight to IVF

In the first cycle we transfered all embryos, so there were none frozen. Our first cycle resulted in short duration chem pregnancy only. In the second cycle we had twice as many fertilize; we decided to freeze half. Second cycle also only resulted in short chem pregnancy. Very upsetting at this point.

Despite emotional and financial strain we went directly into a third cycle. After almost nine straight months of injections and hormone craziness we finally had success.. Positive test and later a healthy baby girl!!!

Two years later we did a fourth cycle with the frozen embryos from the failed second cycle. Now we have a baby boy too SURPRISE!

There are so many 'what-ifs' that it is dangerous to second guess; but we do believe that if we had done the frozen cycle third then we would have had the boy and stopped satisfied.
