active-duty couple

Hi ladies!

Just want to introduce myself, as I'm new. DH & I are both on active-duty. TTC after about 9 years together. Juggling the (already) guilt I feel about taking myself out of the op tempo + trying to get our timing to line up! We're both geo-bachelors.

I know it's for the infertility boards, but DH had his vasectomy reversed about 18 months ago. Great experience with Navy Med! Originally met the dr 3 years prior at Balboa (so 100% covered). Dr was later at Pendleton, which is where DH had the surgery. 100% covered, treated him great, and it was a success! Now just for the baby-making part.

Any other geo-bachelors on here? Or those trying to time up visits + ovulation during a hectic schedule?
