4 months is nothing, your not medically struggling until 12+ months unless you have a condition (like no Fallopian tubes from previous ectopics)

IVF comes with risks – OHSS, anesthesia, cancer

IVF also has no garantee

that said infertility does decrease by the year and the risk of genetic issues increases and embryos store far better than eggs

honestly I woud continue to try for at least 8 more months before jumping to this

I haven’t read past the first page, but if you can afford it, you should consider freezing embryos now if you want 4-6 kids.  And you can do all of the genetic testing to make sure they are viable and you can consider using a gestational surrogate in the future if you need it.

I don’t think it’s a horrible idea, as long as you know what you’re getting yourself into and you understand it’s not a quick, easy and painless guarantee for a pregnancy. 34 isn’t old, but all of your pregnancies would be considered ‘geriatric’ (which is ridiculous but technically what the term is). Banking some age 34 embryos now could be easier than trying IVF when you are 42 going for baby #4 or #5. It’s you and your husbands decision what is right for you based on your goals for your family. 4 months trying isn’t long, but I don’t interpret your post as thinking you’re infertile based on 4 months of trying.
