Hi, ladies! I have never posted here, but I have read a little and it's clear that you all know your stuff!! I know there are lots of supplements to take to enhance fertility, but is there anything that can hinder it? Is there too much of a good thing? Certain foods? We don't have any known causes at this point other than I have an elevated TSH, but will be getting sperm analysis and I am going to do a clomid challenge. Anyone have advice/experience with that?
Brief history - me, 38 and DH 44, we have 2 kids and 2 consecutive losses (both blighted ovum)
Thanks for any advice/insight!!

DH - T (45)
DS - 6 DD - 4

10/2013 (11 weeks, trisomy 21)

IVF#1 - June '14
24 eggs, 18 mature, 10 fertilized with ICSI
4 blasts sent for PGS, 2 chromosomal normal boys
IVF #2 - September '14 25 eggs, 18 mature
7 blasts sent for PGS, all abnormal

Hi there!

Yes, the women here are awesome and they are SOOO smart!!

I really hope your tests go well. Does your dr think your thyroid could be affecting things?
I really don't have any advice, but I wanted to say good luck and I really hope they get you on your way to a healthy pregnancy soon!!

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

TTC with PCOS for 5 very long years. Annovulatory cycles. Multiple doctors. Different meds. One horrible loss. And then one wonderful success, born 2/18/14.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

^ its referring to IVF but I am sure it applies to all fertility.

I have read it twice and it makes my anxiety go through the roof because i feel like a failure

Good luck to you!!
