Bit of help
Hello, everyone. I'm making this post because I'm confused. My DH and I have been trying to conceive. Jackson, my baby, is now a year old. I had him through IVF. I suffer from PCOS. It was a really good experience. I've been thinking about having a second. My first question is that, do you guys think it's too early? Should we wait? How do you know you're ready to have a second? Secondly, do you think I should maybe give IUI a shot? I've heard women with PCOS have a greater chance of IUI success. Or should I opt for IVF, considering it was successful the first time? Any kind of help is appreciated, thank you!

Hi, Maline. I hope you're doing alright. Congratulations on your successful procedure. You must be over the moon with it. These stories make me really happy. I hope Jackson is healthy. Also, to answer your question, I think you should do it. No one can determine for you if you're ready or not. Only you know, if you are ready. As for the options, well yes you have plenty. IUIs are also quite reliable. Your pregnancy chances increase with every cycle. It's a trusted procedure. At the end of the day, it's up to you, really. I can understand if you opt for IVF, you trust it more, I'm sure. Good luck, either way!

Hello, Mindy. I'm doing just fine, thank you. I agree with what you're saying. I think I'm ready to go for it. Maybe, I just needed to hear it. Also, yes, I agree. IVF is something that I trust to work. People have to wait for so many cycles. I had success with my first attempt. I've seen many people fail to get pregnant even with IUIs. I'm not really one to try out new things, either. My husband thinks we should give it a try once. If it works, good enough, otherwise we'll switch back to IVF. Ah well, I'll update when I make a decision. Thank you for your reply! It was really nice talking to you.

No problem at all, honey. We're all here to help each other out. I'm glad you feel at home. I've found a lot of help from here. As I said, I can understand your situation. I think it makes sense to opt for IVF. It's got a higher rate of working out on the first attempt. Plus, you've been lucky in this regard, as well. Good luck to you! These methods are quite expensive, to be honest. So, go for one which you really trust. Hopefully, you don't have to wait a lot. Sending prayers your way. Lots of love for you and the baby, and lots of baby dust for you too. You can do this!!

Hello, Maline. I think you shouldn't be dwelling over this. It's a no-brainer, honestly. IVF is the perfect decision. Especially for women suffering from PCOS. I can understand the worry behind going for a new method. New things can be scary. However, I can assure you, there's nothing to worry about. It's a really good decision. I hope you don't have to wait much. TTC is something that can take time. One needs to be really patient about it. Good luck to you. Sending you lots of baby dust and love. You can do this!

Hey, there. I'm glad you're getting the correct advice! This forum is full of amazing women. Everyone is looking to help each other. I would also suggest what they all have. IVF is definitely the way to go. However, you've got other options, too. Yeah, there's another method, IUIs. It's intrauterine insemination, in full. What they do is, they place sperm inside the uterus. It increases the chances of getting pregnant. The basic goal is increasing the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes. It's a very reliable procedure and fertility increases with every attempt. I hope this gives you a different perspective and helps you out! Good luck to you!

Oh, my god! What an overwhelming response. Thank you so much. I feel so much at home. You guys are really nice. All of your advice is really valuable. Thank you, especially Madison. I thought I was limited to IVF, only. This opens up the room for options. I've thought about going to a fertility clinic. I think they'll help me out more. They will have a better idea of what's suitable. I'll definitely keep you all updated. I will need your help and support, of course. Please pray for me. x

Thank you so much for the lovely comments. I've set up an appointment. I will meet with them next week. I'm so excited about this! As exciting as these new developments are, I'm also a bit nervous. I am not one to try new things. In this case, I don't have any other option. I have done my research, too! I think the two options that they'll give me are going to be either IUIs or IVF. I hope things work out for me. I love the support I've gotten so far. Thank you, Mindy! It means a lot to me. Lots of love and baby dust for you, too! You guys are really so nice!
