I just found that a woman I know overseas here has successfully gotten pregnant by IVF. I’m so glad to be able to have someone to talk to that has gone through the process since that’s the route DH and I are headed.
With all the couples over the years TTC, I’ve actually only known 2 couples that tried IVF…each couple trying twice. First couple it worked both times. She has major medical issues (not fertility related) and it was their only chance of having kids. The other couple tried when she was 38 and 42 and it didn’t work either times BUT she did get pregnant on her own after each attempt…without any fertility treatments of any kind.
I want to know what the statistics are for either you or someone you know having a successful IVF. I know the odds are 50/50 but I’m curious.

@texasbee: Hi. I hope it works for you! When are you starting? I know three couples who have had IVF IRL. The first she was young (late 20s) no female issues and known male issues. For them IVF worked first times with twins. For the other two couples both were female issues and the women were around 40 and after multiple tries it has not worked for either. I know its completely annecdotal…
Fingers crossed very tightly for you!

@Sea_bass: I have to schedule my laprascopy first according to my RE so I’m hoping to have that done the beginning of January. Then we’ll start IVF as soon as my RE says we can. I’m also hoping since they found male factors and haven’t seen anything wrong with me yet (but laprascopy can confirm) that the IVF will work!

Not personally but it was successful for my SO’s sister-in-law, who had a baby girl at 36 years old thanks to IVF after trying for over 6-7 years naturally.

My cousin had 2 IVF babies (not twins, a couple years apart) in her mid-40s. I don’t know how many rounds of IVF she went through, but she had 2 very healthy kids at a pretty late age.
