Okay well I'm not too informed with the terms used when trying to concieve(ttc..one of the few I do know..lol). So here's my story and ? My husband and I have been ttc for 20mths. Been seeing a fertility specialist the past 8 mths. Before I started seeing my fertility specialist, my regular gynocologist had prescibed me clomid & when that did'nt work we decided to see a specialist and look deeper into what the problem cold be. Since then my husband has done 2 sperm analysis (second one we're awaiting the results for now) The first one came back with very low sperm count and a prostate infection. The urologist then put him on atibiotics and odered another sperm analysis in 3 mths, which was 2 weeks ago. If his sperm count hasn'nt improved drastically the urologist confimed he would be putting my husband on clomid. So I'm just wondering if anyone or anyones men have been put on clomid and it worked and if so how long did it take? Thankyou for any advice! View Thread
Our bodies are constantly changing and problems can appear out of nowhere. I had a daughter when I was 20, now almost 6 years later I been ttc for 20mths mths with no luck. Also it may not even be you thats the problem but probably half the time it's our men that will have the fertility issue. In my case it's my husband with low sperm count. Stating he isnt the father of my daughter who is from a previous relationship. Hope this helped give you some kind of answer you were looking for.View Thread
I'm 25 also and been ttc for 20mths. I would think if there is nothing wrong with you you're fiance should get tested. We have insurance but I know that a sperm analysis test cost about $250 for the test and visit on average w/o insurance. Its something to think about, saying this bc my Husband ended up finding out he had real low sperm count from this test and now we can try and fix the problem. And if you have insurance I say to start seeing a fertility specialist, they will be able to look deeper and most likely detect the problem. Good luck to ya'll!View Thread
I'm not sure what the results been but as for you're menstrual you seem very regular. Has your husband had tests done on him? after a year of ttc thats usually recomended. For us we assumed I was the problem we werent concieving until my husband had a sperm analysis done and his results came back with low sperm count. Also are you tracking your fertile and ovulation days. That is very key to knowing when to time yourslef to have sex for better chance of conception. If you havent started seeing a fertility specialist I would recommend to start there and most will usually have the men start testing right away along with checking you completley. Hope this is any helpView Thread
You will find alot of us really understand alot of what you are going through, we're going through it ourselves It is very hard when getting pregnant just isnt working out as you planned it would. My husband dosent have any children of his own, I have a 5 yr old daughter from a previous relationship but I desperatley want another child and give my husband a child of his own, a child he can watch grow in me and born and all those wonderful things. We got together when my daughter had just turned 2, she's his daughter and he tells everyone that but there is still that emptiness of having a child of your own that he feels. I'm sure you feel that same way. We've been trying to get pregnant since july of 2010 when we got married, and like most people we thought we would get married and soon after be pregnant. Unfortunatley it dosent always happen that way. We are now going on 20 mths ttc, I was on clomid at 1 yr ttc for 3 mths (did'nt work) but later found out my husband has low sperm count so he will be getting put on clomid himself real soon. Hopefully it works. I wish you much luck and this is a wonderful group to vent and find answers to from women who are going through the same hurt and hardships of ttc just like you. It's best to try and stay positive and not let yourself get to worked up about it (I know this is much easier said than done) but the stess from it can only hurt you more. Good luck & baby dust your way View Thread
First off I'm going to start off by saying It's nice knowing when you're not alone in a situation and I love this group and hearing everyones stories. It gives me hope. Okay, well here is my short story and ? My husband and I have been ttc for 20mths now. Before I started seeing my fertility specialist my regular gynocologist had prescibed me clomid and after 3 mths when it did'nt work we decided it was time to start seeing a fertility specialist and look deeper into what could be our problem. Well in the past 8 mths while seeing our fertility specialist my husband has done 2 sperm analysis (2nd one we're awaiting results for). The 1st anlysis came back showing he had very low sperm count and a possible prostate infection so the urologist put my husband on antibiotics and ordered another sperm analysis after 3 mths, which was 2 weeks ago. If his sperm analysis comes back without a drastic improve in his sperm count the urologist will be putting him on clomid. So my ?? is has anyone or anyones significant other (male) even been put on clomid and did it help and how long did it take to work?? Any input on this dicussion will be deeply appriciated and good luck to everyone ttc! View Thread
