Campaign Story

My name is Lea and this is my attempt at giving us one last shot at having a baby. I am 39 with diminished ovarian reserve and my husband is 40 with low sperm count and low motility. We have exhausted our infertility benefits with my insurance. My first IVF cycle resulted in 6 eggs retrieved with two making it to blastocyst stage, but then coming back abnormal after testing. My second cycle was a botch when the DR tried to change the drug regimen. I ended up with only two mature follicles and decided to cancel the cycle. I just finished my third IVF cycle, which resulted in 5 eggs retrieved and one making it to blastocyst. We are currently waiting on testing to return on this little embryo. We are discouraged though and trying to figure out what our next step is. If I don’t make it to a transfer, I would have 1/4 of a cycle left on my benefit. I would still get a discount, but we were quoted a little over $8k without drugs. My husband was unemployed for several months. He just started a new job but hasn’t received his first check yet. We have been able to manage ok but have depleted our savings. We would just like one more attempt at the IVF. Because the second one didn’t go as planned, we are having a hard time ending it at this point. We have no children and have been trying for over 3 years to conceive naturally. Please help us raise the funds for one last attempt.
