(Copied from regular TTC board) Here is my story...DH and I tried for a year and a half for our first when we FINALLY got our miracle BFP AU NATURAL. DH had 2 semen anaysis that said he suffered with severe MFI (low count, low motility and poor morphology). I put DH on herbs and he did 3 months of acupuncture and three months later we were blessed with our son! He just turned 2 in November. We were told we would NEVER conceive without IVF with ICSI. We are now on our 12th cycle of ttc #2...I am SO frustrated, sad and discouraged...we are using opk's, instead cups, preseed, herbs and DH has been doing acupuncture for the last 3months. Praying each and every one of you get your much-deserved BFP VERY, VERY SOON!!!!

Hi Kristina!
I really hope you have some luck soon!!

What kinds of herbs are you doing?


ETA: I decided to try the instead cups. They seem like a great plan! I used one and it worked great.... and then my puppy stole the box and chewed them ALL!! OH! BAD puppy!!! lol

Thanks so much hun!!!

DH is doing Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Men's multi, l-canitine, acetly l carnitine, l arginine, maca, tribulus, korean ginseng, selenium, pine bark extract, glutathione, COQ-10 and mucuna puriens. He also uses castor oil (rubs on his testicles lol lol lol )

I take EPO and red raspberry tea leaf from AF to ovulation, I take B6 to lengthen luteal phase (still bf'ing my 2 yr old son 1-2x day) and I take Vit D. I am also doing castor oil packs from when AF stops to O.

SO FUNNY about your puppy!!!!!!!!!! What is you TTC journey/story if you don't mind me asking?

PRAYING you get your BFP VERY VERY SOON!!!!!!!!! <3

Yes, she is a ridiculous critter!! She's 11 months old, and an 80 pound golden retriever. She barks at herself in the mirror so she really is her own worst enemy! haha (worse pun ever!) And she chews up everything she can, but she is a sweet and loveable doll-baby. She's really my son's dog, he has aspergers, and she has been wonderful for him!

My ttc story...
We started in 2009. I had such an easy time conceiving mine with my ex 10 years ago I thought it would be so easy!
But in that 10 years, my ovaries stopped working right! PCOS runs in my family, and none of us have normal cycles, so it wasn't shocking, just disappointing.
I tried losing weight, and working with my dr. Then a new dr. None of the vitamins or diets worked, and they did blood work and said not PCOS, but no ovulation either. So they referred to a specialist. I have done one cycle with clomid, and I think I ovulated, so that's great! Now I'm on cycle 2 of clomid.
I have an appt with a fertility clinic on Feb 25, if this doesn't work by then. I'm hoping!! We would love more than anything to have a baby together
