Should we try IVF?

I'm almost 39 and have a 3 year old daughter conceived naturally. Since her birth I have had 3 miscarriages and have had investigations that show I have antiphospholipid syndrome and I now take aspirin. My last miscarriage was over a year ago and we've been trying to get pregnant since with no success. Taking into account my age and medical history we are wondering if IVF would be an option for us.

We are sorry to hear about your miscarriages.
