Hiya all, I'm so glad I found this thread, it's great to be among my people!
We are diagnosed with unexplained infertility, I had a lap/hysteroscopy and all is clear, egg count came back good for my age (41), DH has a high percentage of abnormal sperm which inceased by 7% after coming off caffiene and going on Menevit. The FS said if I were younger he would tell us to go away and try for another year, but I'm not so here we are.
We are in week 3 of our first 6 week cycle, I've been sniffing Syranel for the past 5 days and it's making me a bit 'switched on' (I'm being kind to myself, it's making me down right aggressive but am managing to contain it!), and have sat here reading all this posts crying at the unsuccesses and thinking how incredibley strong you all are. Perhaps that's just a bridge I have to get over before I can get the hell on with it and still function normally because at the moment, even in these early days I'm finding it quite exhausting.
Anyway, I'm positive (as my friend said, if you don't believe it would work why would you bother to try?) and realise that it's not going to be a skip in the park unless we manage to be two of the few who are lucky first time. I read that acupunture can increase your chances so DH and I are off for our first appointment this morning.
Nice to see I'm not the only newbie who's a bit niave on the subject, there's just so much information but it's nice to have some people to hold hands through the process. DH is wonderful but not a big talker and I'm away from my closest friends so it's great to have this forum for something to turn to.
Good luck everyone, we can do it! .... oh yes we can.
