I have a daughter conceived through IVF. I understand how frustrated you must feel. My husband and tried for five years
before getting pregnant. I don't think I'd go right into IVF until consulting with a specialist. If you are not conceiving because
of a hormone imbalance or some couples have bacterial infections they are not aware of then it would also be likely that an IVF try would not work.

IVF is where the egg is fertilized outside of the uterus and then transfered back when the cells have divided and have
become an embryo. Artifical Insemination is when they inject sperm into the women at the right time of the month in
hopes an egg will be fertilized.

Please write back if you have any other questions.
