Hi Guys
I am completely new to this, but it looks like a brilliant place for advice. So thanking you all in advance.

My husband and I have been TTC for 3 years, we had all the tests and everything came back normal from both sides (his count was a touch low but nothing major). We tried IUI 3 times at The Lister, on the second time we conceived but sadly had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks. We are now going to do IVF this month and are due to start next week at The Lister, they have put me on an antagonist protocol. However, I have always had concerns about the amount of drugs IVF involves and have recently read about mild IVF at Create, so I am now debating whether that might be a better option (This isn't based on a financial decision at all). Has anyone else been in this predicament or had experience of either? I have found The Lister ok, but through out my IUI's I was given a lot of incorrect information and find I have to research everything myself to make sure it is right.

Look forward to hearing from you all.

Thanks xx

Mild IVF has no research backing it and very low success rates.
It works for women who are in lesbian relationships or don't have a partner, not for women with unexplained infertility.
Please don't waste your money!

It might be better to talk in terms of what's appropriate Nano?

Same sex female couples, single women and the no-fertility-issue female partners of MFI men make up more than half of women seeking fertility treatment.

Mild is a perfectly good protocol for them.

Possibly also worth a try in unexplained cases.
