Are you considered "normal" and your only issue is MFI? How does it make you feel?

Makes me feel helpless and controlled at times. Its like, i dont have any other options to have my own kids... IVF IS the option and it stinks sometimes! I hate being....forced into things.. i like options and with MFI there are usually 2 options.. IUI or IVF.

I am normal and ovulate regularly. It makes me feel limited because I know for the past 2 years we have done EVERYTHING in the book and nothing.
I'm being optimistic for this friday's appointment. I cannot wait!

Age 36 with PCOS, poor ovarian reserve (.197), and blocked left fallopian tube.
We are TTC our 2nd blessing baby.

Well other than my long and irregular cycles, I'm "normal". I get frustrated that it's so hard to get pregnant for us when it seems its so easy for everyone else.

Thank You Jaidynsmum for my gorgeous siggie!

I'm not sure if I'm "normal" or not yet, but knowing that we are dealing with MFI does make me really sad sometimes. I hate how stressful it is trying to predict my ovulation perfectly so that we can get our donor sperm shipped, crossing my fingers I don't O on a Sunday because it can't get delivered then, etc.

It's also brought up a lot of sadness and anger for me because it's forced us to confront my hubby's disease (Cystic Fibrosis, which has an average survival age of 37) over and over again. Even though I know he's doing well and will probably live much longer than 37, it feels like there is a clock ticking all the time and that we don't have forever to be parents together. It just makes it all the harder to deal with the fact that it may take more time because of the MFI and makes me wish we could both just be "normal" so much.

I feel the way most of you do. we won't use donor sperm and my husband won't adopt. I feel so bad for my husband because how he feels.

It sucks!! but I love my husband and I know that if it were the other way around he would be supporting me thru everything and reassuring me that everything would be ok.

He worried about me leaving him but I just remind him that we are in this together.
