Some of you know me from the April IVF thread. I went through my first cycle of IVF last month, and had four follicles, but the RE was only able to retrieve one egg because my uterus blocked two on my left side, and one follicle on my right side was empty. The egg fertilized, but never made it to the biopsy stage. So, because I turned 40 in April, the thinking was that I would do the Clomid challenge in May as a formality to prep for another cycle of IVF in June.
Unfortunately in spite of my earlier normal test results, I failed the challenge.
I'm lucky living in Massachusetts, where insurance covers many fertility treatments, but since I failed the challenge, I don't think they will cover IVF any longer (I'm not sure if they will do partial coverage for a donor egg).
We're meeting with our RE next week to talk about next steps, but I was wondering if anyone else has failed a challenge, and what you did from there. And if anyone knows any details on Massachusetts coverage, that would be a bonus.
Part of me is wondering if my OH and I should try again naturally, as we conceived twice last year, but unfortunately *TW* both of those ended in MC. *end TW*
We are open to DE, but are trying to wrap our minds around the cost, especially if insurance will no longer cover part of it (i.e., medical stuff, but not lawyers' fees, etc.).
