IUI or IVF

#1 Post by rubyru2000 » Wed Mar 11, 2020 10:33 am

Hi everyone!
I hope you are all well. I’ve just started on my journey with Care.
I am 41 and I recently had my AMH test and scan. My AMH was 18.2 and I have about 14-16 follicles in both ovaries.
I am going it alone with a sperm donor after my relationship broke down as my boyfriend had children and didn’t want any more.
There are so many things to decide!!
I am not sure whether to go straight into IVF - I haven’t seen many success stories for IUI in the over 40s.
I have limited funds and I’m remortgaging my house to do this.
It’s such a big decision!
I’m sure people have posted this question before but any advice would be really gratefully received. Good luck all,

Ruth xx

Hi Ruth,

What has your consultant recommended? they usually give you a steer on what would be the better outcome for your particular circumstances.

Good luck with everything x

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. They said to me if money was no object I should try two rounds of IUI then IVF. I don’t have a huge amount of money though and I understand that IVF is more effective in women my age.
Big decisions!
