Hi everyone! Missed you guys! I've been on my new endo treatment almost a month now and am already seeing some slight improvement. I'm still on pain medication basically 24/7 but I don't feel like I'm going to die quite as often if I take a dose late. Before I'd have to take it about every four hours but I've been able to extend that to 6 or sometimes even 8. It feels like I'm on track to be completely better in another two months which is the estimate my doctor normally gives.

DH got his first testosterone shot a few weeks ago and I can already notice a difference in him as well. One of the main symptoms he had was apathy. He would constantly complain about how he hated just not caring about anything. That's definitely getting better. Also TMI but his sex drive has increased a LOT!

Right now we are saving money for embryo donation. I can't believe it but some people have actually donated money to us for this. Not much, between $5-35, but a bunch of small donations add up. I was thinking we'd be looking at doing that next spring sometime but DH wants to get the process started as soon as I'm feeling better. He says even if we don't have it all saved by then we can get a loan or financing. He really doesn't want to wait which I think is super cute. So if everything goes well we might be cycling by the end of the year!

We are planning on the Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. They have an office about 2 1/2 hours from here which is basically the closest RE to us.

I've read a lot of good reviews about them! It is an anonymous program but I'd rather that anyway. It would be really cool if we were using the same clinic.

I am thinking after this whole TTC thing that I may put DH on supplements for the testosterone. I was looking at the effects and WOW it's crazy! So glad DH is doing better! I am sure that helps *you* feel better!
How exciting!!!
You better KUP even if you are in an out and not sure you can stick around much again

Yes DH feeling better definitely does help me feel better too! He thought he was suffering from depression, which he is, but it's caused by the low T. I really don't know how we didn't see that before because he has *so many* of the symptoms.

I will try and KUP from now on!

I was just wondering about you the other day. Thanks for the up date. Glad things are getting better. I took a break from coming around for awhile and when I came back I wondered how you were. Hoping for the best for you!
