Finally...hello! — The Bump
TTC after 35

Finally...hello!

After lurking and posting here and there, I figured it was time to officially join the group. I am 37, DH to be 40 in two weeks.  TTC since May 12. CP in June 12. Was seeing OB then and he said we were fine, that at least we knew we could "get" pregnant.  So we waited and kept trying.  Finally, I saw the light and started the down the fertility testing road. DH's SA test came back with motility and morph issues. Doc said to just test again in a month. HSG earlier this month and my left tube is blocked. RE said right tube looked good and sono showed large follicles. His words, " get busy".  We did, BFN again. Seeing RE again on 2/5 to determine next steps.  I use CBFM and CM watch to check ovulation, along with FF.  Tried temping, but I get up way to much to pee to have an accurate reading. Any suggestions on next steps after tube blockage welcomed!!!

I truly love the support on this board. It is nice to have others that understand. Thanks for having me!

    Me 42, DH 34 - TTC #1 since June 2012.
    9/12 3-day testing: TSH 3.76, T4 Free 1.1, LH 6.1, FSH 7.4, Prolactin 9.0, Estradiol 56. 12/12 HSG done & my tubes are clear!! 1/22/13 3-day testing: TSH 6.2, FSH 7.7, AMH 0.86, Estradiol 54, Prolactin 10.5. Thyroid almost doubled (hmmm), started Synthroid 2/4/13 and also 15,000 of Vit D 1/wk. 2/26/13 RE says I am in great shape, but DH has MFI - extremly low count along with morphology & motility issues. RE said IUI would be a waste, that IVF with ICSI is what he thinks we should do. Insurance does not cover IVF.... :(
  • Welcome!  good luck!  Seeing an RE puts you on the right path!  The Trouble TTC board  might have more answers for you regarding the blockage etc... They are super helpful over there!
