Hey there. I usually post in the male infertility board but need another place to post as well

I thought this would be a nice place to join considering the rest of the boards just don't fit us well...


We're young (22 & 25) and have been trying to concieve for 2+ years. I checked out fine (no reproductive problems) but recently we found out that DH has severe male infertility. Semen analysis didn't even show enough sperm to test. We are now looking towards the diagnosis as to why this is, and our plan. I'm hoping we can just do IVF, or even IVF with ICSI..without the sperm extraction (TESE) but we'll see.......

Since we will DEFINITELY be needing med assistance, I thought I'd start posting over here...since this board is a little more fast paced then the male infertility board.


I look forward to getting to know you all after taking a JM break for a few months.. lol Now i'm back and looking forward to hearing your stories. I think thats my favorite part about JM is reading everyone's stories and everything

Hi Ashley and ! I am Jill (31) and DH is Joe (31) and we have one DS who is 11 years old. We are just starting to TTC again after a 5 year break while my DH was in school. I was DX with PCOS several years ago when we first TTC #2 for 4 YEARS! Currently I am on Provera waiting for AF to show and when she does we will schedule HSG for me and SA of DH. I am sorry about the difficulties you are going thru. Hopefully now that you know what issues to tackle you are on your way to your BFP!!! Good luck and hope to get to know you better!

Hi there and My name is Brandi (24) and DH is David (25)...we have been TTC since Sept. 2006 with the loss of twin boys in August 2007.....We've done countless rounds of Clomid, injectibles, an IUI, and even IVF, and I'm still here... I have SEVERE PCOS (completely anovulatory) and DH has POOR MORPHOLOGY (less than 1%)....

I hope you find this board to be a place where you can feel comfortable asking questions, venting, and of course, sharing that when your time comes
