Yeah, my appointment was a couple weeks ago and my OB asked the same question. I laughed in his face. After 10 years of IF, ain't no way they'll be some miracle "surprise" baby.

I had a first appointment with a new GYN last year. After taking a history (IUI, 3 IVFs, first & only child at 42), she asked about birth control - and then laughed herself. It was a lovely moment actually.

My OB was certain that for me, having a baby would cure my infertility, and is not on board with my low-tech approach to contraception. But you know your body best. Of course if it happens again or it doesn't, you got a good deal out of the whole reproduction thing--two perfect little boys!
