The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

Devastation… August 20, 2012

Filed under: TTC — 2Lesbians&Baby @ 1:27 pm

I just got a call from my insurance.  They are denying my request for IVF treatment based on Maryland’s mandate that my eggs must be fertilized with my partner’s sperm. 

I can appeal…

Right now I feel like my world just crashed down around me.  I’ve been so excited for the past 2 weeks thinking that maybe I’d actually be able to do this.  To have it dangled in my face and then taken away because I’m gay is hurtful and thoughtless beyond words…

    That’s ridiculous–I’m sure that PLENTY of people doing IVF in Maryland aren’t in the position to use their partner’s sperm. I’m sorry that you have to appeal it, but I’m hoping you’ll win, and soon!

    Im so sorry about your disappointment. I live in Illinois, but have gone through similar issues with getting IVF approved. If your male partner was sterile, you wouldn’t be able to use his sperm, right? I dont know why a female partner isn’t seen as a similar scenario. I eventually got coverage but i had to prove we did IUIs at home for 6 mos (among other things). I have hope that you will find a way. Don’t give up.

    Insurance sucks! Appeal, hopefully they will change their minds. Remember it is just a setback, not the end of the journey.
