Post subject: IVF is my only hope and I am so confused
Hi, I was referred to the Oxford Fertility Clinic having been ttc for 3 years. My appointment was on Monday and the news was not good. IVF is my only hope as we have unexplained infertility. Although I have PCOS I ovulate on clomid and my husband is fine. Has anyone had any experiences of IVF as I am so totally confused - it is such as lot of money and from what I have seen on TV an uphill struggle and very emotionally draining. I am totally deflated. AF arrived on day 27 and at present I feel rotten.

Thank you for your support - If I do decide to go down this route I will keep you all posted. Sometimes it's nicer to talk to people that you dont really know. What I do know is that there are an awful lot of people going through the same thing so I wish them all the luck in the world x

Good luck Terina
Have you explored the natural route? Check out Foresight's website - they are a charity which advises subfertile couples on preconceptual care. http://www.foresight-preconception.org.uk/
I am currently carrying out a study on their success and I am very impressed. It doesn't work for everybody but it does for some. It makes people feel that they are doing something. Their programme also boosts 1st time success at IVF for some people.
