Just introducing myself

Hi Everyone!
I've been lurking on these boards for 5 years and just recently decided that I should start posting. I'm 36 and my DH is 34. We have been TTC for the past 5 years but have been unsuccessful. This past April I finally bit the bullet and made an appointment with an RE in our area and have just recently completed the evaluation (the cost and my job made it difficult to complete quickly). So far we know that DH sperm count isn't the best but it was secondary to taking a testosterone replacement so he is seeing a urologist to help with the issue. As for me I have a low AFC (4 on the left, 2 on the right) but everything else is completely normal. I just had my HSG a week ago and the nurses and doctor keep stressing how I was supposed to be more fertile for the next few months so I started tracking my LH surges and BBT again (I used to do this when we first started but gave up after about a year of no success). So I'm currently in the TWW and am trying to remain sane and hopeful. I look forward to getting to know everyone.
