Well hello to all of you beautiful ladies :-)
Baby cement to you all!!! And congrats to those who moved to the DDC. :-D

Well, I had a laparoscopy last month to fix an inflamed right ovary and to see what was going on inside my uterus. On Friday, July 20th I went to see my specialist and he said everything was fine! I asked if I had Endo and he replied no. But he did find some polyps which they removed. I don't really finish understanding what they have to do with not being able to get pregnant but ok. At least they're not there now LOL

He also said that he knows that my left ovary is completely open, but both of the ovaries are healthy. I looked at him baffled as if I couldn't understand what he meant by that. He told me that sometimes, the doctors instruments cannot pass through the ovary, but that doesn't mean that they're not open, w.e that means.

Soooooo, the only issue that's going on is DH and his low sperm count. I continuously tell him that if we're gonna have babies, he would have to stop smoking. Let's see how that goes lol

Thank You girls for reading and if theres any advice, I'm all ears!!!

Def the smoking has to go! Your making sacrifices to TTC and get pregnant and he should too. It dramatically lowers the sperm count :/.

Glad to hear the post-op went so well!!!

Hopefully this is the kick in the pants (no pun intended. OK, well maybe a little bit.) that your DH needs to kick the habit! What are his thoughts on it? Are you guys planning on doing anything else to help with his count as well? Or just start with the quitting first and see how that goes?
New siggie coming soon!

Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.

DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.

DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.

TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!

IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!

Glad to hear the polyps are gone, and your ovaries are open.

Has he ever tried to quit before? Anything you can do as a goal (besides a beautiful baby) that would help entice him?
