Hi Everyone, I know this is a bit of an old thread and fingers crossed you've all achieved your BFPs! Just need to send my thoughts and worries out into the world cause we've not told anyone about our ttc issues.
We've been ttc for 13 months now, 1 chemical but nothing else. DH just got SA back last week and Dr said if we want a child anytime soon we will need IVF, really upset me as for the last 12 months I've been trying so hard. DH was upset which was so hard to see, staying positive and trying to convince him to give vitamins a go for the next 3 months and then we'll ask to be retested. He is against taking vitamins which has been very frustrating but hoping he will give it a try. Going to try Metagenics Paternal Plus and Macca to start with, 8 tablets a day so fingers crossed he'll give it a good go.
He works so hard 14days on 1 day off and in a very hot climate so worried this is doing damage but we're not in a position to quit mining work. We are moving back home and DH will return to FIFO 2 weeks on 1 week off. Hopefully this will help with stress and he'll have a better life/work balance, which hopefully = better sperm = no need for IVF. Plus we'll actually have access to good Drs and FS! Yay!! it's been so hard in a remote town, never see the same Dr twice.
I'm not against IVF but wondering how it is possible with a partner who is most likely never going to be around at the 'right' time of month. Also I'll just have moved and hopefully started a new job. Will I need to be taking a lot of time off work? Any rough idea on what IVF costs in WA?
Sorry for the long story, just feeling a little lost
