Considering IVF

My FI and I will be married in April 2015. We have discussed having a child together after we are married. We are both 40 and 41 and my tubes have been tied. I don't want to risk having my tubes reversed so our option is IVF. My sister had her tubes reversed and still ended having to do some other things to help them conceive. The good news is they did conceive and have a beautiful 6 month old baby girl. He is still able to produce children. I am still have a regular cycle each month.


I know it seems a little late in life since we both have 3 adult children each (mine are 17, 17, 20 and his are 18, 20, 22). I have had 4 previous c sections.


Can anyone give me insight on IVF?

I do not have much insight into IVF, as I haven't done it. I did meet with an IVF specialist this past November. I would definitely recommend making a consultation appointment, if you have any friends that have done IVF see if you can get doctor recommendations. I really love the doctor we went to and he was very through. He explained the procedure, pros and cons for our situation, and also gave us further recommendations for other procedures. 


 


Good luck!!!

I second what missjess said. Call and go in for a consultation. Find out exactly what is involved and I wiuld do the preliminary testing sooner rather than later to verify your ovarian reserve and quality. I have a friend that did IVF twice. She had her eggs harvested at 35. Her firsr IVF baby was born 10 months later. Her second IVF baby was born when she was 40 from the eggs she had harvested 5 years earlier. :-)
