Bethann I didn't know either! The GP didnt put us down for the test but te pathologist recommended it. So for all those with unexplained infertility def get Dh do the anti body test. Not all labs do it but it's do important. Apparently we can have it too in our cm. anti bodies that kill the sperm.

Well I Thot it was working but when I got home it was less than yesterday. And I'm sure I haven't o'd yet as temps are very low. Did an opk last night and mild line. Will be bd'ing every second day from tonight :)

Haven't received results yet from the GP. He's so slow!!

Tagra it sounds so unusual. I hope things return back to normal for you soon or your GP can give you some answers. *hugs*

I was pretty unstressed last month but this month waiting for sa results are making me a bit edgy. Not feeling too confident about this month. I'm sure when the time is right it'll be our turn.

Bethan I agree with keeping the expectation low might really help with warding off the stress a bit and my case is becoming an epic of confusion...Lol! Sorry but no other way to kick all the stress it is causing this time....ugh!

Clucky I know what u mean. These results do make us anxious somehow. I too have that test done and fortunately mine are not killing his spermies. Hope u get good results and soon. Fx for u and good luck with bding :)

Good luck and baby dust to all :)

Clucky & Tagra, I think both your stresses are understandable! This journey is often really hard and very confusing... And the waiting and not knowing that you are both going through can be the hardest part.

Well, some progress here... Finally got a positive opk on cd 18, which is kinda late for me. Hope my LP won't be too short. I'm worried that the new supplements I'm taking May shorten it, which I've heard has happened to others. On the other hand, my CM has greatly improved, so... We shall see!!

Baby dust, ladies!!

Well good cm is a good start bethann. Maybe if you o late it means AF will be a bit later? That's what happens to me. I'm rarely in time to the day so if o is late I expect AF later. I'm cd 16 today and still no positive opk for me either. Temp still low but test line getting gradually darker. Still bd'ing just in case tho. Loving preseed! Hehe.

How are you feeling tagra today tagra?

Fx for us all this month. Baby dust all around ladies :)

Oh no, Clucky, sorry to hear about your DH's results. :( Not knowing at all what his results are, I will say I've read a lot on here about men improving their SA through vitamins, lifestyle changes, etc. hopefully it'll be something like that for you two. KUP.

Tagra, are you getting new meds? Have your temps gone back down? How're you feeling?

I also finally got my positive OpK on Saturday, but my temps aren't very high and FF guessed that O was the day before my positive OPK... Smh. Lol. I'll try to post a link to my chart when I'm home, not at my phone.

Fingers crossed and baby dust to everyone!

Yeah bethan onto meds in new cycle now. Just keep missing my ginger tea as all warm foods are to avoided again. Otherwise fine.
Was little disturbed with the thought of leaping into void when my doc said that I should take off from work in second week of tww...and might need to quit going to office if at all I conceived. I so wish mine was too a normal case like others...

Yeah post link to ur chart. Good luck and get busy :D

Hi all, update on DH's results. 100% sperm antibodies :( chances of naturally conceiving are less than 1%. Been pretty down about it all. Madly searching the internet for answers but it's very limited. Only way is IVF via ICSI. Still not sure if i can do that. Life really sux sometimes!

Oh no Clucky. I am so sorry. I can't even imagine! :hugs: Try to take it easy and be gentle with yourself. Any thoughts of getting a second opinion? I'll be thinking of you guys...
