Intro Post - IVF First Round

Hi all. My husband and I have been married for 4 years and we have a beautiful daughter who is 2.5 years old. We started TTC #2 in the fall of 2014.

My cycles ended up being all over the place and OPKs were coming in negative, so finally in July 2015, we saw my OB/GYN who started us on Clomid. After 3 unsuccessful cycles, I had an HSG. We ended up doing another round of Clomid, had a two cycle break and then two final failed rounds of Clomid.

At this point, they finally decided to check my husband (they waited as we already had a healthy child). It was determined that he had morphology and motility issues so we were referred to a specialist.

We had our consult the end of March 2016 and we were diagnosed with Secondary Infertility. The RE also told us that a cholesterol medicine my husband had been taking since his pancreatitis in May 2015 could have been the issue as it isn't recommended for people of child bearing age. We were given the options to keep trying on our own or pursuing IVF-ICSI.

We are officially doing IVF. In Mid-April, I had a sono HSG which resulted in them removing some scar tissue and aspirating a cyst on my left ovary.

I just had my ER this past Sunday where 13 eggs were retrieved but only 9 were proper size. We found out Monday that all 9 fertilized. We are patiently waiting for our FET sometime in June.

The Bump got me through my first pregnancy when I hadn't told anyone we were pregnant, so I'm hoping for that same support through this process. Best wishes to all.

    Best of luck!  We also are in our first IVF cycle due to sperm morphology and motility issues.  We had our retrieval last Thursday (May 12th) and the transfer today.  Good luck to you!
