I listed some personal information on my situation below.
I have Endometriosis and have had 4 miscarriages. I am considering in vitro on myself or possibly a surrogate. Are there any grants, clinical trials, etc that can help me with the $15,000+ cost. I am so used to disappointment at this point and don't want to spend that kind of money if it doesn't work. I have already done all the leg work and tests through the fertility specialist and am in the clear to do in vitro. My husband and I have been actively trying for a child ever since I was diagnosed with my Endo and possible Luteal phase defect 11 years ago (at age 21). I am currently 32 and really want to finally make some drastic decisions because I am tired of feeling like I let my husband and I down. He works so hard to I don't have to because the Endo can be debilitating. I have also been through the ringer trying to resolve the issues resulting from the endo. Including laparoscopic surgery, 4 cycles of Lupron, progesterone, chlomid. Please help!
Thank you, Bethany
