My name is Nikki (23), I have been married to Edward (33) since August and we have also been TTC #1 since then, we are from Ohio.

I have Endo and Ed has a low sperm count, we have been given a 2% chance of concieving naturally so we will definately need medical assistance.

We have already had two unsuccesful attempts at IUI and we will now move on to IVF, we are hoping to have our first attempt in May which we are very nervous and excited about.

Hope everyone gets their BFP's soon.

Hi Nikki,

My name is Carin (28) and I have been married over 9 years to DH Brian (35) and We have DS who is almost 20 months old, he is our MA/progesterone baby. My DH also has low count and I have LPH ( luteal phase defect/progesterone deficiency) I am sorry to hear about the failed IUI's and I wish you the best of luck with the IVF in May and hope for a bfp soon!

I hope you get "Grad" status soon! My DH and I have some similar issues, and we are starting our IVF cycle as soon as AF shows!

I'm Christin (26) and hubby is (30). I have poor quality eggs, and hubby has a very low sperm count. we started TTC in 2004 for baby #1, after 3 IUI's, 2 IVF cycles, and one miscarriage we were told we had less than a 1% chance of ever getting pregnant. a few months later in June 2008 we became pregnant with our son (natural cycle) so keep your chin up, it does happen even with very low odds.

Good luck on your upcoming IVF cycle!!

Welcome! I'm Eva (28), DH is 28, and we have lots of male factor issues (count, motility, morphology). We had 2 failed IVFs and then switched to IUI with donor sperm and conceived our son on the 2nd IUI. He's now 2 and we're TTC #2, using the same donor as last time. Hope your stay here is short!

Thanks so much for the welcomes!

It feels so nice to be talking to people who know what I am going through, though I wish that none of us have to go through it all.

Hi there Nikki. Welcome! Hope you get that BFP ASAP

I'm Tasha (27). My DBF and I are currently making decisions on if we TTC again naturally or go down the IVF route, as I've found out I have a Balanced Translocation in my DNA.
