If Mr. GG had his way, we'd start IVF immediately. His brain is so extremeley rational that he wants to give us the best chance possible each month. He didn't seem impressed that the overall IUI success rate after 5 is 74% because each time it's still only 20% or less.
So he's ready now. Wow.
I did explain to him that it means lots of drugs and surgery for me. And that I'd be taking new drugs that everyone says make you extremely angry and emo. I also said that he should let the doctor go in and take out his sperm so that we can have similar experiences.
But...I think I'm ready too. In two months at least.
I want to try this next Clomid IUI cycle. And I really believe it has a good chance to work. Then we will have our break month and will consult and see whether IVF is right for us.
The way I put it to the nurse is that we want to procede in the most safely aggressive manner.
I also want totake a second to reiterate why we are in a hurry. DH turns 43 this year. This was really my biggest fear in marrying him in the first place. I want him to be around a long time for both myself and the kid(s). So we don't feel the luxury of slowly moving through all of the steps.
And luckily, we do have the money, at least for one.
I'm still not sure how I feel about high multiple IVFs. I'm pretty sure I would do a second if the first didn't work, but after that, I just don't know. I guess I don't have to know that much right now.
