TTC #2 after primary infertility

Postby eseptember » Thu Jan 17, 2013 10:18 am

Hey everyone!! I'm back for #2 and really anxious about it b/c it took us 2 years to conceive the first one. I remember the roller coaster ride very well and it's already a stress to me. We have decided to start ttc as soon as dh gets better from a chronic illness he has. He has to take prednisone (a steriod) for his condition and this greatly impacts his sperm count, motility, ect. Anyone else worried about the second time around?

Hey, it's me, BBee!!

Welcome back :) We have been TTC #2 for about 10 months. We also have "unexplained infertility" and needed IUI to conceive DS. I didn't know that steroid affect sperm count/motility? Interesting - - - I use some steroid cream for my psoriasis and wonder if it affects DH if he gets some on him? Not that he does, but anyways...

I'm hoping conception is easy for you this time around! We didn't know what would happen - would we magically be fertile? Would my body know what it was like to be pregnant and then just want to do it again? We've been trying naturally but are now looking for a referral to an RE again.

When do you think you will start trying?
