I've seen Tis ask you your opinion and so that encouraged me to ask you about my case... completely different but I would be curious what you think of my efforts and whether I am best to move on immediately to DE, which I would consider.

I am 43.1, had 2 previous pg (m/c 1/99; abortion in 94) moved on to RE this past January00. Had FSH tested twice (OFRM): 11(1st time) E2:71 ; then..FSH:9.3, E2:46; proceeded to a natural IUI but it didn't take.. then did 1 attempt at IVF: 4 AMPS GonalF(75IU), but only produced 1 follicle (also Synarel, Climara); this was cancelled. Changed RE's and am now at Cornell.

I am gearing up for another IVF attempt: No Lupron(?). My RE did indicate that my chances for success would be greatly improved trying DE, yet I'm not convinced that an IVF wouldn't take given that my 1st one was cancelled.

Am I wasting my time going for another IVF attempt? I am not willing to try this over and over again and am very willing to move forward if prognosis indicates likelihood of failure..

BTW, had HSG: normal, husband's sperm normal, also had Saline Infusion Sonogram for what was believed a fibroid but proved to be nothing..

What is your professional opinion? And thank you
