The cause of your Secondary Infertility? Do you think it was factor when you got pregnant the first time or is it a new issue?

We are dealing with low sperm count (it was severe and has improved significantly with a varicocele repair) and now I have elevated FSH.
It took us 6 months to get pregnant the first time, but we had no idea that we had any major fertility issues. I (and DH's urologist) think DH's count was always probably at least borderline low and the varicococele made it worse over the last couple of years. As for the FSH, that's a new finding. It's pretty unbelievable that it is elevated now at age 26, so I'm pretty sure that wasn't an issue back when I was 23(almost 24) and got pregnant.

We have no idea what the cause of ours is. Every test they do comes back normal or great. The doctor says we are two exceptionally healthy people (with the exception of the fact that we are both overweight) and that he can find no reason why we can't get pregnant and stay way.

If I am honest with myself, there may have been some indication of a problem between Sierra and Will. Sierra was concieved while preventing. Will was after 2 years of NTNP. I just assumed that it was bad timing (my ex worked away from home ALOT), now, I really wonder though.

I put difficulties first time round to stressing over not getting pregnant as easily as I thought. Second time I thought I wouldnt have that same stress so it would happen easier and it did - but I miscarried and discovered I had a low progesterone making my luteal phase too short. Previously my cycle was too long not too short so not sure how related the problems might have been?

Now I did read about resentment towards your partner possibly being a factor and of course the old 'relax' advise! Well there was months when I felt I didnt think about getting pregs and 'relaxed' but still never helped. However when I broke up with my husband my cycle settled down into 24 days straight away. I wasnt charting nor trying for a baby anymore so i have no idea if my ovulation also settled but I am now pregnant so I am thinking perhaps my body did block him from getting me pregnant? He wasnt a good daddy in the first year and half with our daughter so I always had some resentment/distance from him than before. Its a possibility hmm. Along with the 'relax' or 'dont try' advise that drives us all up the wall!

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!

Mine is a luteal phase defect also. I have known for some time that I had a luteal phase issue it just took time for me to make the Doctors realize it. I don't know what is the cause of the low progestrone.

Hey Donna. Have you tried taking high doses of B6 for your LPD? I tried lots of things and got a longer LP for two cycles with it but I have heard it working better for others? Also my half-sister took Angus castus and got pregnant although again I did try all these things. My temp post-ov was higher when I took AC. Sorry if you already tried all these things as I haven't been here so I don't know.

After looking around the boards, and trying to decide which one to post on, I have decided that this board is most relevant to me. I am 26, and my DH is 27. We have a healthy 5 yr old son, and we have been TTC for 6 months now. I don't have regular cycles or ovulation, and no idea why. No PCOS, all ultrasounds are clear. But here we are, still TTC, without success, and absolutely no idea why. We are going to stick with Clomid another round, but may try the natural route, too. Clomid side effects are a bummer I almost feel like I missed my fertile time....

The side effects from Clomid can be brutal, for sure. I am going to be posting some details for a natural remedy that you might want to try later. It's had some huge success on another JM board.
