Background: We're coming up on one year trying. I'm 37 soon. Hubby is early 40s. Conceived twice before very quickly. (1 Miscarriage, 1 baby). Toddler is now nearly 2.
The miscarriage was pre-baby, and after that I had a cyst removed which also removed 1 fallopian tube. Got pregnant next cycle.
We've gone for tests, everything normal. Am ovulating & regular, healthy sperm etc. Only thing off is v low amh which is apparently associated with the ovarian surgery.
I'm 9dpo today, haven't tested but don't feel like I'm pregnant.
There are two options.
1) Have an ultrasound to make sure my tube is clear 2) Skip straight to IVF.
Option 1 - is cheap, easy but needs 1 month of no trying and it feels like there's no point doing it unless we give it a month or three after to see if even the checking helps, and then that's potentially just wasting more time. On the other hand I feel like a blocked tube is a pretty good potential explanation for the lack of pregnancy.
Option 2 - is IVF and all that entails. Can't even remember what the clinic said about when to call them to start. Probably looking at September now?
Do we need a cycle off trying before/leading up to IVF anyway? When do they usuallt start drugs (i will ask doc later today but need to brain dump) Maybe I could just do the ultrasound thing and go straight to IVF in September. No time wasted but covered if rd 1 IVF doesn't work.
Any thoughts? Comments?
