I’m 42 and have been TTC for about 9 months. We found out that my partner definitely has issues which would have been a large part of my inablity to conceive - regardless of my age…but I’m guessing that even with “perfect” sperm I would likely have problems at this point. I am using donor sperm to take his issues out of the equation and we are both fine with that.
Day 3 FH 8.9, Estradoil 51, ultrasound found 10 follicles.
My doctor seemed to be “happy” with those numbers and said that while I am on the decline that there is still a chance for me. The thing is, I have no clue what they mean.
We have decided to do IUI first because: 1) I’m not sure I want to go through IVF, and 2) because my insurance requires that we do at least 2 cycles of IUI before moving to IVF. My doctor says this is unfortunate as normally he would consider the IUI wasting time, but due to my partner’s issues he thinks it’s worth a shot. He also says it’s a good thing that this is not something I am depressed or stressed about - if it happens it happens, if not then I’m okay with that too. IDK if being stressed or relaxed or whatever matters but I’d love to hear if someone has any thoughts on the above numbers or can point me to another thread maybe that discusses this.
Thanks and best wishes to you all!
