Medications for IVF Procedure

My husband Roger and I have been trying to get pregnant on-and-off since we got married in 2007. For most of that time I was in nursing school and we didn't have insurance to find out what was causing the problem. We got insurance last year and discovered that I had severe endometriosis and had to have surgery in November. After the surgery we found out that the endometriosis had badly damaged my ovaries and eggs which is why I haven't been able to get pregnant. According to the various doctors I've seen, I have very little chance of achieving a spontaneous pregnancy but I do have a good chance of becoming pregnant through IVF although there are no guarantees.

IVF is very expensive and none of it is covered by insurance, not even the prescriptions. We have qualified for a loan and our families have contributed as much as they can, but we are still short the $5,500 we need for medications. We would sincerely appreciate any help that anyone is willing to offer. Any money we get will go directly into the fund for medications and anything we might get over the goal amount will go toward paying off our loan. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Please note - if you haven't had any experience with someone going through the emotional turmoil that is infertility, please read the following before forming judgments - http://www.resolve.org/support-and-services/for-family--friends/infertility-etiquette.html. If you have questions about why we've chosen this path, we're more than happy to discuss it, but please keep in mind that this is a very sensitive topic in which we are emotionally invested.
