Deciding to see if ART is needed.

I know we need to do something, but I'm not sure how deep we are going to jump in.

Our insurance covers infertility treatments. They cover 3 cycles in a lifetime. I'm not sure exactly what that means, but I know that if we tried IUI that it would count towards the 3 cycle limit. Looking at the stats, IUI has such a low success rate per try it makes me think that for me personally it isn't the right thing to do. I don't think I can handle that emotionally. Maybe if other things don't work out then we will pay for IUI out of pocket, but I don't know. My latest GYN said that "when you want to have a baby we'll do IVF" but I don't know if that means that the other things are a waste of time. I'm guessing so with my medical history.

Trying to get in for an appointment is hard. I've been calling for over a month, and they returned my call one time but of course I missed it. I am trying to get in to Seattle Reproductive Medicine. Super lucky that they are in network. Same with Overlake Reproductive Health, but for some reason I don't want to go there. I know they have better success rates than SRM, but I don't think I would feel comfortable with the doctors.
