Hi txbiscuit,

The sonographer was not very helpful and just told me to speak to my GP, no matter how many questions I asked he wouldn't respond, I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Pretty rubbish, going to be a long 10 days.

How did your hubby get on yesterday?

The sperm analysis came back good, I think. My husband got the results, and he couldn't remember everything she told him about numbers/mobility, but remembered he had 33 million motile sperm.

I've gone off coffee this month to see if that will help us along. I also downloaded a Natal Hypnotherapy track for infertility/conception relaxation. I don't know if it will help, but I figure it can't hurt. I have two days left of Clomid, and then I'll go in for a scan next week to see if I have any follicles. For me, it feels good to have a plan.

That's good news on the sperm count, at least it's something ruled out.

I know what you mean about having a plan. Just to feel like something is finally happening feels good. I have also tried other alternatives and I'm having weekly reflexology. I'm not sure if it's helping, who knows but it makes me feel better and I sure feel relaxed. Fingers crossed for the scan, when is it?

Reflexology sounds really great. The scan is Monday, so not long to wait.

Hi. I have missed a bit. Good news on sperm count, I havn't had any scans but that sonographer must have been frustrating.

My blood test came back saying I didn't ovulate which shocked me a little bit as my main concern was early menopause not lack of ovulation. My bbt chart seems to think I did on day 18 and this is the day they took blood so maybe too soon?
Gp is phoning me today to discuss next steps.
I've been having reflexology for a while now. I think I may turn over to acupuncture in the new year.

I hope the not ovulating is an easy fix for you. I've heard really good things about acupuncture.

The Clomid didn't work as well for me this month. I'll go in to see the doctor sometime early next week to see if I should take another round or try something else.

Hope y'all don't mind if I join your group. My situation is similar. I'm 37 and am TTC #3. I have 2 boys from a previous marriage, and they're 10 & 12. My husband and I have been trying since we got married in July '15. No luck. OPKs show a surge and that I'm supposedly ovulating, but I haven't done any OPKs since June. I almost felt like it was stressing me out more, but I'm starting back on the OPKs this cycle. In April my on/gyn ran bloodwork and did vaginal scans. Hubby also had a sperm analysis, and dr said it was good. Dr was going to start me on a low dose of Clomid, but In July we moved 3 hours away. The dr I'll be using wanted me to try Pregnitude before they did Clomid because they've had good results with it. I started it in September, and this last cycle my period was abnormal for me. I had one episode of light red spotting on cd25 then a few days later bled for a day and a half. My cycle usually runs 27-29 days and 3-4 day period. I'm frustrated and feel like the Pregnitude messed my cycle up.

Welcome Mamamissy! I'm sorry the Pregnitude messed up your cycle. I hadn't heard of that before, but it looks like it's supposed to help with PCOS?

Clomid makes me ovulate successfully, but we're still trying to catch a good egg. (Out of three Clomid cycles, I've had a chemical and a miscarriage.) Hopefully your doctor will let you move on to Clomid or something else since the Pregnitude didn't seem to help.

Just wondering if any of you have ever had trouble with OPKS? I have never had a line of any sort on one. Even when blood test confirmed I ov'd on Femara. Fertility nurse says they just don't for some.

Hi all, my dh and I are 33 and ttc #2. Our son was conceived without trouble, but now one CP and 13+ cycles later...here we are. I just finished my last clomid pill (this is our 2nd round) a couple days ago, and now I'm waiting for my fertile window to approach.

Nothing could be found on either of us, but the drs highly suspect I have some degree of endometriosis - and that could be where our issue lies. If this clomid cycle doesn't work, we're on track for our first IVF round. Disappointed it came to this, but sooo excited at the thought that maybe our troubles will be over. Fx

Hope everyone's journey is short and sweet.
