Success after IF

Advice for someone looking into IVF

I am going through my 3rd mc, am 37, and have recurring endometriosis. I am wondering if IVF would matter for me. Anyone here have success with this type of background? My docs keep emphasizing how old I am like I should just give up!

    I'm in my mid-20s. I have endo that was severe 3 years ago. I haven't had surgery since so I don't know how it has progressed but if it was already severe I'm guessing it was pretty bad. I also have low AMH. I tried several rounds of TI and IUI before mov

    If you're not seeing a reproductive endocrinologist (RE for short) you really need to. You don't need to give up, you just need to make sure you understand what your best course of treatment is and what your odds are.

    I'm sorry for your recurrent losses.  I was 37 when I had my first BFP (via IUI) and ended up with a m/c.  I was 38 when I had my 2nd BFP (via IVF #1) and gave birth to M when I was 39.  I don't have endo; but the fact that I was 38 was
