IVF - Is it worth it?

Our maid is going through the IVF procedure. Watching her going in and out of the hospital amd clinics countless times for various tests and stuff I really wonder if it is worth at all not to speak of the huge amount they have to shell out. My maid has to buy the egg too as she cannot produce her own. She also has other complications. A normal woman has a 30% chance at the first attempt and repeat of that would mean spending more money. In my maid's case I am not sure how many times she would have to go for it to be a success. Her husband wants it and she wants to go through this for his sake.

They are just so eager to have their own baby. Hope they can succeed though it will cost more.

They are buying the egg and so it will not be her baby.

@allknowing In this way, I think maybe adoption is a better way.

It is easy to ask if it is worth it. If you are desperately wanting to have a child and you finally do conceive, the joy the baby will bring will outweigh all the troubles. What does annoy me is those deceitful people who say they are younger than they really are depriving someone else of having a chance to have a baby. There are also those who pop babies out like they are going out of fashion. Life can be so cruel!

In this case this person has issues. She is a diabetic and her thyroid is troubling her besides a few other health problems. Life can be indeed cruel

i guess it would depend on how expensive the treatment is in their country. from what i hear it's like 10K US per shot.

That is pretty experience and it may not work at the first shot.

When there is no other way, perhaps this is one option one can take.

I find this all a bit sad. It's just a shame that those that want children find it difficult to have them while others pop them out so easily.

My aunt namely Awit also tried that because her husband who is American wants to have child. And it was a success.. About your maid case, I am hoping that it will be successful..

But looking at the trouble they both need to undergo I sometimes wonder if it is wroth it. They can always go for adoption.

I am sorry to hear that. But if IVF will at least help them to conceive a child, then go with it.
