    Hi Ladies :wave:

    There are quite a few of us on here who are TTC after a VR and it has been great to see that there are more of us on here than we first thought. :happydance:

    I have enjoyed sharing experiences and results with lots of the ladies and thought how nice it would be to create a 'Club' for all of us to join and share these experiences and memories with. :hugs:

    I have included links to threads from across the forum that you may find of interest and likewise, if you come across anything then please do let me know and I will be sure to add it. :thumbup:

    So please come along, introduce yourself and I look forward to hearing from you all at some point and I wish you all the best on your TTC after VR journey!! :hugs:

    My name is V and I am 26, my DH is 44.
    DH had his Vasectomy reversed in Sept this year after 8yrs (just before we got together) :dohh: lol
    He has 4 children from his first marriage and we can't wait to have our own baby :yellow:

    We had our Reversal done at the BMI Park Hospital in Nottingham by Duncan Harriss and were were really pleased with the staff and care that he received on the day.

    We are due to have our SA in December. Fingers crossed :dust: to us all!!

    Hi girls!

    I'm 31. OH is 44 and we had reversal done at spire Leicester last November 2010. He has 2 grown up daughters but we would love to have one together. I have no kids and get broodier by the day! Had his sa march this year and results were really positive which surprised the surgeon as original v was 16 years ago, and we had only been given a 20% chance of being success. Still no luck for us yet in getting a bfp so if still nothing by xmas gonna go doctors and have tests done on me.

    It's lovely knowing there are others in similar situation and hope we all get a bfp before crimbo !

    Hi! :hi: My name is leafy, I am 31 & my OH is 44. We both have two kids by previous partners, but are desperate to have a :baby: together. He had his vasectomy about 7 yrs ago, and had it reversed at the Nuffield in Exeter 6 weeks ago.
    His :spermy: results came at the weekend, 72 million - which is an excellent result, so fingers crossed for that :bfp:!
    It's good to know others who are in the same boat, sending lots of babydust to all you ladies, good luck!!!

    Hi Ladies
    I'm 38 (39 on Saturday!) and hubby is 33, we have 1 child together. I have had two children with a previous partner (my first baby emily was born sleeping). So we have a 7 and a 10 year old with us and are trying to make another! Hubby had reversal in May 09 (e years after vasectomy) but I was finishing my masters degree so we only started trying Nov 09, had a chemical the first month and nothing since. his sperm test was good post reversal but as we've not conceived he's having it re-done tommorrow. My bloods were okay- ish but my progesterone was a bit low so I'm taking soys isoflavones for the first month and hoping for a :bfp:
    I'm 11dpo and have lots of symptoms but hpt was :bfn:so we'll see.
    Good luck lets hope we all get :bfp:soon
    :dust:

    Hi ladies :) it is good to have a place for us, thanks live_in_hope for creating this. Unfortunately most people don't understand how it is for us ttc after VR so it's lovely to be part of this group :)

    I have posted bits of our story elsewhere but for anyone who's not seen my other posts on the subject, here's a summary.

    I am 28, OH is 39. We both have 2 kids from previous relationships; he had the V done after his youngest was born - nearly 10 years ago. We would love dearly to have a child together.

    OH had VR done in May this year at BMI Ross Hall in Glasgow. He was sent off with his pot and told to make a sample in it after 12 weeks and send it in. We then had a letter saying sperm were present thus the op was technically successful. Nothing else. That was the extent of the follow up!

    We've been trying since he was well enough after the op with no success. I rang the surgeon who did the VR as we really want more detailed analysis, and he turned round and said they don't do that at Ross Hall and just try for 6-9 months and then consider assisted conception! He gave me the number for a private place that does it for £110 :wacko:

    I'm currently trying to get OH to see our GP for a referral to get a proper SA done, as for me it's a limbo not knowing if we even have a chance.

    My cycles had been regular since having the implant taken out in February. Then a couple of cycles ago I had a stupidly short cycle - AF 10 days early on a 26 day cycle. I've started taking agnus castus to help regulate; taking up until I think I've ovulated then stopping till next CD1.

    Here's hoping for our :bfp:s really soon.

    Hi Tallybee
    My hubby is having a 2nd sperm test today via his GP for free, as we've been trying for a year. The GP agreed to do CD3 + CD21 bloods for me and a sperm test for hubby so I would visit your GP and beg if you don't get :bfp:
    I'm 12dpo and had a :bfn:today trying to keep my chin up but a year of ttc is taking it's toll. My other babies were made so quickly! Oh well once AF comes I'll feel more positive again.
    Here's hoping we all get :bfp:soon

    Hey :wave: I'm glad you liked this, I thought the same too about having somewhere central for us all to come, I'm sure we could even have our own section within the forum as TTC after VR certainly can be just as challenging as any other fertilty problem.

    Well thank you for popping in and I've added your name to the front page, so anybody with any VR questions can find the names and PM us, I wish I had this before DH had his VR, it would have been great!! :thumbup:

    Anyway, good luck and :dust: to you xxx

    yay for your + OPKs!!! thats good news, hope you pair are 'busy'!! :winkwink::winkwink:

    FF wont tell you that you've ovulated until your 3DPO as they can only detect in once your temps have risen 3times if you know what I mean, and then your CM and your OPKs will back it up. I'm hoping I'll ov from sometime close to next weekend, but we'll see xx
