I have been going through infertility for the last 10 years.My husband has low sperm motility. I am 42 and not sure if Mini IVF or conventional IVF would be recommended to improve our odds.I had one IVF cycle and became pregnant 5 years ago and misscarried we also did 9 cycles of artificial insembations but none took. I had surgery about one year ago to remove one fallopian tube and polyps. This will be our last try since financially we are limited.We have been in acupuncture for about 3 years on and off.Any discounts for social workers? I would greatly appreciate an honest opinion.

Thank you

At your age, the majority of the eggs you produce have chromosomal abnormalities. So, if you can respond to stimulation and produce multiple eggs, this will greatly enhance the likelihood of obtaining a viable embryo. Mini-IVF is meant for women who cannot produce multiple eggs.

If you don't respond well to stimulation meds, mini IVF may be a good alternative.

Hello, I am 36 years old. I have one IVF cycle last year. I produced 14 eggs, but only 3 fertilized. I had a chemical pregnancy. My stims were very long, about 17 days. I have been told that my ovaries respond very slowly. My FSH is aboot 10-12 also. Do you think that mini IVF is a good alternative for me?
