Hello. Me and my fiance have been together for 8 months. We have started fully ttc for a few months now and I know it can take a while because I have 2 kids feom my previous relationship. Its just frustrating and upsetting that its not happening like we would like it to. He also has a very low sperm count which makes it harder. I was hoping that this was the month but I have been having light spotting and cramping and my period sshould be here around the 8th. Any advice on what to do to up our chances?

My husband and I have the same issue, however he has an extremely low count, were conceiving naturally isn't even a possibility! He has had 2 surgeries in hopes of fixing the problem but they were unsuccessful.

Has he talked to his doctor about alternatives? Have yall thought about doing IUI? I know it is a lot cheaper then IVF. I'm sorry, wish I could be more of a help.

If the sperm count is less 5 million, its almost impossible to get pregnant naturally.Did you try Maca or zinc or any other male fertility supplements totry producing more sperm?? If its not working, you and your DH should talk withdoctor and probably dr will recommend doing IUI….

I did IVF with ICSI with my husband with low sperm and got pregnant.

Hello Lisagrau. Congratulations on your new relationship. I don’t think 8 months is too long to lose hope. You should continue TTC. It is nothing to worry about. Might be it is because of your fiancée’s low sperm count. He must consult the doctor if you want a baby soon.

I'm sorry to hear that! You may find your answer in IUI. Have you given it a thought? Or maybe have already done it... It's recommended for sperm-related after marriage problems. Consult an expert if you haven't already.
