I just joined today. I'm 39 years old, TTC our first since July, 2013. I was on BCP for most of the last 20 years, with a couple of breaks including 18 months with an IUD (pure torture) a few years ago.

From July until December, we were attempting to have regular BD, but due to other issues, that was less than regular and obviously no success.

Went to fertility clinic in December and had blood work, US and HSG. Blood work showed slightly low thyroid, so I'm on 25mcg a day. US and HSG were both normal.

Husband (36) had sperm test, low average volume, low average motility, low morphology.

This month is the first time I've used an OPK. I'm on my fourth day of +, with constant ache in lower right abdomen. I have been testing first thing in the morning, but I'm usually up at least once a night with my dog so I pee then as well. I can't really use temp tracking because I rarely sleep longer than three hours at a time and was told that being up multiple times a night will throw it off.

I used to have large amounts of EWCM mid-cycle, but that all disappeared when I went off the pill for some reason. Since July I've only had a couple days when EWCM has been evident when I wipe. I'll bring that up again when I see the NP in two weeks.

The next step is supposed to be Letrazol, though I'm very leery of that course of action because of side effects. However, I'm also needle phobic (to the point of seeing spots and greying out if I see a needle intended for someone else, it's really embarassing when they make you sit down on the floor because you saw the needle for your dog's sub-Q fluids) so the possibility of injected fertility drugs or injected ovulation stimulation is not something that I'm looking forward to.

I'm not sure how I feel about IUI, and at this point IVF is not something I'm at all interested in... though who knows how I'll feel about that in a few more months.

So, that's about it...

Hi Michelle!

Welcome! I understand the whole needle thing but just think of the great outcome if they work. I hope everything works out for you! :-)
