Intro — The Bump
Secondary IF


I am new here and looking for some other people to talk to about this process.  My husband and I have two boys - ages 4 and 5.  I did not have any difficulties getting pregnant with either of them, so assumed it would be the same this time.  Unfortunately, we have now been trying almost 18 months.  We had three medicated IUI cycles with Femara in January, February, and March, all of which were unsuccessful.  My husband's sperm count and motility were low, and we recently received results which indicated our chances of success with IUI are very poor.  So we are moving onto IVF.  If everything goes well, I will start the medications on April 30th.  Anyone else looking at similar timing?  I look forward to talking with everyone!
