Hi! I'm Kristina and DH and I are on our 12th cycle of ttc#2. We are dealing with severe MFI. DH just had another sa after doing a year of vitamins (lots of vitamins) and 4 mths of acupuncture with not much improvement (low count, low motility and poor morphology). Our next step is going to a urologist and possibly trying Traditional Chinese Medicine. We were given a 0% chance to conceive our son and did so naturally on our 18th cycle. We will be trying naturally til the summer then possibly moving on to IVF with ICSI. I do not feel like I belong on the regular ttc board and would love to join you guys, offering support and encouragement to you all! Praying you are all blessed with your miracles VERY SOON! I am looking forward to getting to know all of you!!!! Xx

Hi HI HI. Welcome over here. I know what you mean about not feeling like TTC board is a fit. I tried it there for about 6 months into TTC and I came to TTCMA before I was even getting much medical help. I just wasn't fitting in to well over there, but here they put up with me! They don't even care that I spell like crap and I write to much... Oh yea - I whine a lot too cause I am a wimp and have totally medical anxiety.

Looking forward to getting to know you and yes we did talk about you with those cups! hahaha! Only good stuff though! Nice to put a username with a success.

Oh yeah - we have (had) MFI too. Mine DH has morphology issues but they seem to be getting better some how. Went from 2% strict to 7% strict in a year.
I think it's those smart phones in the front pockets of their pants. They produce heat and are constantly sending and receiving data. Other then fertileaid from GNC and taking cell phone out of front pocket DH has done nothing else and it appears his Morph is a little better. His SA has been tested 3 times and all 3 times where from different people so I am not sure if they all grade different or what.

See I am rambling......

Hello! I'm new too and have felt so welcome! Also MFI. As DH says, his are "low, slow, and have mis-shapen heads". :-)

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!
17/05/14 - Baseline looks good, start Gonal-F 225iu and Luveris 75iu
28/05/14 - 18 eggs retrieved, 14 mature
29/05/14 - 13 fertilized!!! All are looking great still on day 3, so we're going to blast!
02/06/14 - Transferred one 1BC blast, with 3 other blasts and 3 morulas to watch and freeze
03/06/14 - All embryos have arrested. None to freeze
09/06/14 - Faint BFP at home at 7dp5dt!!!!!
10/06/14 - Beta?
