Hello. I am new to these boards. My name is Amy. I have 4 children with my DH and we are trying for #5. We had no issues TTC the first 3 and #4 was actually an unplanned surprise! But, we have been trying now officially for 8 cycles. DH has Low T (he's on the young side for it, but it runs in the family) and his SA was not awful, but not great.

So far, I have checked out ok. My FSH, LH and prolactin were in normal range. My 7 dpo progesterone was good.
His sperm county was 35mil, his morphology is about 10%, his viscosity is high, and forward motion and movement is low. We are supposed to repeat his semen analysis soon and will do so if this cycle is a bust.

Yeah... I'm not really sure what else to say. Or really even how this journey goes as this is a new struggle.

But Hi!

Welcome to the boards! I'm also dealing with secondary infertility. I have a son who just turned two and have lost 2 pregnancies this year. It's such a hard place to be in when you know things worked before! I don't have any answers for you, but wish you luck moving forward. :)

Hi, good luck lovely! :)

I pushed for my oh to have a SA,and I feel awful now as just before Xmas we got a letter to go into he’s go for an appointment on 9jan!,he’s now again totally adamant he can’t have kids!,I told him that they go into loads of details and it’s not as easy as yes u can have kids crack on! Or no u can’t sorry!

I feel absolutely awful about it!,if things are. It so bad with him, then I’m off back to my drs, my periods are between 30-31! It’s hard work knowing when I ovulate and without sounding bad my sex drive is like nil! I’m just so tired with work etc at the min

Hope ur all ok xx

Hi. You sound depressed. You sure will be. This is kind of a sad post. I'm really sorry to hear about this. The struggle gets so frustrating. I totally get you. I think you should get some fertility treatments for yourself. Trust me, the waiting isn't worth it. All it does is eat you up inside. You don't want that. This is what I suggest to most of the people. I see people who TTC for ten years even. This really tears them apart but they go on. This is really not healthy. If you can have a baby with different ways, why not do it? I know of a great clinic that you can go to with this issue. They will suggest what procedure would suit you best. Good luck.

Hi there! I know this is quite a late post on here. I'm sorry so many people are going through this. Just read and felt I cannot leave it unanswered. I hope this year has brought you luck. And that you might probably be on prego list since your last visit. Hoping for the best.
