After trying to get pregnant for nearly 15 months, my wife and I finally conceived and now have an amazing 5 year old boy. We've been trying for four years for child #2. My wife has been on clomed for several years and we've tried insemination half a dozen times with no luck. We can no longer afford the treatment any more. Nearing 40, we are both saddened that we do not have more kids-we both grew up in families of 6. What doesn't make any sense to us, is that insurance pays for most birth control, but does not see infertitily as a medical problem. Plus it's very expensive to do further fertility treatments-with no garauntee-or to adopt a much wanted child. For now, we live day by day hoping for another child to come into the family.
