Just wanted to see if anyone went through an IVF cycle while nursing. If so, please share your stories.
So here’s my story:
Before I left the States, I asked my RE when I should start IVF for baby #2. His response was after 6 months (for BF) and before 12 months. DH asked why before 12 months…and it was because of my age vs chance of success if I waited longer. I consider his rec to be more or less unmotivated by financial gain, since I would not be cycling with him.
Where I live, IVF is free. So cost is not an issue. I don’t want to wean DD (5 months), but do want to try for baby #2. So I’m torn. Based on my research, there seems to be a general “feeling” - which isn’t based on scientific data - that nursing MAY decrease my chance of getting a BFP. So the rec is to not nurse during IVF - why pay all that money and not give it your best shot is the general thinking. Well, I’m not paying out of pocket, so I’m ok if we give it a go and it doesn’t work out.
Anyways, just wanted to see if anyone out there nursed and cycled at the same time, and if so, what was that outcome.
