I have a very slim chance of conceiving again, I have DOR with AMA. Several REs I've seen have suggested 'straight to IVF'. While I tend to agree that in terms of ART, my condition probably does warrant the 'straight to IVF' approach, I'm thinking that I'm not going to do it. Why?
Well, I've been given about a 1% chance of conceiving ... very high FSH, very low AMH. I've been reading about all of the drugs/procedures/etc that I'll have to be going through with IVF/medications. I already get migraines, I already don't sleep well, I already have a daughter, who was conceived spontaneously, so I've been thinking to myself recently ... why would I put my already fragile reproductive and emotional state through all the medication/procedures/etc if the chance of success is still very low? One RE actually said to me that I have a better chance conceiving on my own than through ART.
It's not so much that I don't want another child, but if my chances don't increase significantly with IVF, then why put myself through it? I have insurance coverage, so the OOP costs wouldn't be exorbitant, but insurance is limited to a "4 ER and you're out" lifetime maximum benefit. So if it doesn't happen in 4 ER, then we're 100% OOP.
Has anyone decided to not do ANY ART with 2IF?
