Hello Kelly
Thanks for your query.
I am sorry that 3 IVF attempts have failed.
You have not provided proper and complete details.
from your information, it sounds like you have diminished ovarian reserve.
herein, the capacity of the ovary to produce mature follicles is reduced.
I would like to hear from you with your hormonal reports and AMH values.
If the response to stimulation with gonadotropins is poor. then even IUI has less chances of success, since mature and good quality follicles are a must.
If your reports indicate poor ovarian reserve, then donor oocytes are a better option.
take care.
