After having the consultation with the fertility clinic, we've basically come to the following conclusions:

* There's nothing wrong with me as far as we can easily tell, aside from me being older and less-fertile than me-of-25, probably. (Follicle count: 7-8, not the 10 preferred.)

* We don't know if there's anything wrong with Mark, because no tests have been done for him.

* The cost of fertility treatments is completely bugfuck insane, and we'd rather spend that kind of money on a child in need than on a roll of the dice for a pregnancy.

We are probably going to discuss this a bit further over the next few days, but most likely we will be applying to an adoption agency or foster agency within the next 3-6 months, while continuing still to try on our own without further medical assistance. If we are lucky enough to have our own children, great. If we don't have biological children, that's fine. There are many kids out there who need mommies and daddies.

I am currently looking at http://www.angelsfoster.org as a likely starting candidate.

Adoption/foster is a totally reasonable option, especially if it's going to cost you an arm and a leg to do fertility treatments.

Good luck with whatever method you end up deciding on for your future kid!

*HUG* I know this must be rough, but the fact that you're trying means you care more than many people do.

Much luck and *more hugs*

I really do need to log in and check more often. I'm sorry things have to be at this stage, but I'm glad you have a path forward.

Yeah, I can see that. If nothing else, the weekly dildo-cam part is not fun; luckily I'm at a practice that's less expensive, with insurance that covers a good chunk (although I think I just hit my lifetime cap for fertility treatments, at least until 2014).

Of course, I'm also approaching this from... well, I think I just posted about that.

Whereas I'm being odd-woman-out in the sense of "hmm, let's conduct science experiments on my body!"

...which, come to think of it, is a slightly twisted way of looking at it. Hmm.
