DH saw endocrinologist today. He said he needs to continue with clomid for a month and measure testosterone after 1 month break. If it will come back low as before therapy he will start with shots. He also gave him something for the thyroid(although everything is normal) because sometimes it can help and does no harm.
I hope God will send us good news soon...
Yes, stay positive! I so hope someone will get BFP this month to keep us in good spirits:) I keep my fingers crossed for all of you:)


What type of shots?? If he low testosterone he can't do testosterone shots. It will make him sterile. It will completely wipe out his count.


I just remembered. You said your husbands sperm is way better with clomid, but ours is the same. The doctor said it's most likely not the testosterone that is worsening our results, because after a month the count should have gone up, but didn't :(

It will take at least three months to see an improvements in a sperm count. How long has he been on Clomid? If he hasn't been on it for at least three months I'd definitely wait at a few months just to make sure. If he's only been on Clomid for a month the sperm he is producing while on it hasn't even been released yet. It will take up to three months for it to be released. Hopefully you'll get some answers soon!

Not progesterone shots, but something that will stimulate testosterone production like clomid, but more effective. But since we started clomid with other doctor it's better to continue for now.

On the other hand, do you know why he can't take testosterone shots? I had no idea :omg:


Treating low testosterone with pure testosterone will completely ruin his count. Do some research before you speak with your doctor about it and check what they're going to give him. DHs urologist said he has men come in all of the time with fertility issues because some other doctor has given them testosterone injections to treat low testosterone and their sperm count is now down to 0.

Its sunday, tested this am in hope of seeing something but nothing. I put the test in all different angles and nothing. So disappointed today im 12 dpo 14dptrigger shot. I really hope there is something growning in my belly. Come on it was 12 mature follicle. What is wrong with me? This does not look good. I dont think ivf will make a difference. Started with my usual migraine last night and feeling rf is on its way. Not sure if i will still see her ugly face using 3x endometrim and .5mg of progesteron in oil. Is it to late for implantation? I wanna cry ;(

Hi everyone I am new to this site and hoping I can still join June IUI. I am on my 2nd IUI, after 75mg course of femara and ovidrel. After my first iui my doc increased my femara to 75mg to hopefully grow my follicles a little bigger and quicker (last iui was on cycle day 19!). This cycle I triggered on day 12, iui was done on June 17(day 14). I have one 22mm follicle to work with and I'm hoping this is the one! I go back for my test on June 30th(my birthday)! Thanks for all the positive thoughts!

Will i guess i will also post negative. I also tested this morning 12dpiui negative. Is hard to think that going in with 12 mature follicles and not even one will try to stick. Something is really wrong with me. I dont think God wants me to have another baby. Its been 12 years since my last. I dont want to give up, i dont.
I think i will diffenetly try tp save money for ivf for September or nov.

If you're taking progesterone supplements, how did you know you needed it? Is it just something your RE tested for?
