What to do?

I am 30 years old and three years ago I had a natural pregnancy after trying for 10 months. After hearing the baby's heartbeat on two different occasions and all looked great, I miscarried at 9 weeks. I was told it was chromosomal. I tried again for a year and finally went to a fertility clinic. After my sencond iui attempt, I was pregnant with twins. All looked great again. At almost 18 weeks, I went into preterm labor and lost both of them. After a 7 month hiatus, I tried 5 IUIs and no luck. My doctor wants my next step to be ivf but my insurance doesn't cover this treatment and I'm scared this too will not work for me. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I'm willing to do it if I knew it would result in a healthy baby.

I dont think IVF is the answer, there are immune issues that can casue both early losses and early labor as well. The goal should be to identify the cause then treat. If you are able to concieve on your own , you should not need IVF. If you would like to discuss with me , fill out a consult request on the website and we can schedule a free 10 minute chat to reveiw your case.
