Military couples TTC


So my husband got back from Afghanistan not too long ago, and I've been hearing from other women TTC that it's harder to get pregnant right after the husbands come home because of all the medication they have to take lowering their sperm count. Has anyone else heard this? I know that his first few days back in the states he got shots for all these viruses and is having to take meds so he doesn't get sick. He got home right before I ovualted and I'm right at implantation time, so if I end up preggo I'll let you know if this is a myth for me. Lol.

My hubby got back from Afghanistan last May....I've heard the same thing, but I always know loads of military spouses that got pregnant with no problem after their hubby's deployment. Soooo that said, it's hard to say what the truth is. Good luck though!!

Thanks ladies, I'm hoping I'm one of the lucky ones who get preggo right after they get back. And meanbmrb2011, fingers crossed for you!!

Also with all that said, there should be a support group of sorts for military wives TTC...just saying. Lol.

I would say the stress would be another defining thing.

Then again this could work in your favor because coming home can relieve a lot of stress.

I have two friends who tried as soon as their spouses returned one got pregnant two months after the other took a year. But then again I always hear about baby booms soon after a unit returns. In fact our last base is having one right now since a large unit returned just 6 months ago.
