    I am 35yrs old and have 2 daughters 4 and 6. I have been trying to get pregnant in the past 3yrs. I have had 3 failed fertomid cycles and 1 failed IUI. I am scheduled for another IUI with more stimulants. I have heard about you even from my Dr and would like to know how much it will cost and your opinion of my chances. took out fibroid last August via open surgery. HSG done prior to abdominal myomectomy and tubes are fine. Its not easy doing these procedures but I would take my chances if I can have success with you.
