    Definitely. Ever since I asked him to do the SA he's been cagey because he's been worried that he's the cause of us being unable to get pregnant. Now he's got the result that he's mostly fine, I've told him it's likely me so to stop worrying (I'm loads more proactive. He needs an op, took about 2 years to see the specialist, saw the specialist last year and still won't book the op!). I might just get him some menevit and tell him to suck it up haha. I also need to find a way to let him know where I'm at in my cycle so it's not always me trying to initiate. If I tell him we need to dtd every second day for the next week he gets annoyed because he doesn't want me to tell him we *have* to have sex. Mind you, neither of us have raging libidos so for us it doesn't work to be like "right, let's have sex now". I'll fix him a nice dinner tonight and try and sort him out!

    Subscribing! CD13 but just had some random spotting for the last 3 days so not expecting to O for at least a few more days. Last cycle was 33 days so hopefully testing very end of July or early August

    Good luck everyone!

    Em I never told DH "we need to have sex today" but I did just initiate when I knew the time was necessary. I have low libido so I would have to push for it myself, but if I initiated something he will very quickly get swept up in it and then I let him carry on haha. I'll be honest a lot if the time it wasn't that great for me - if I'm not in the mood it's almost boring? That makes dh sound terrible haha it's really not like that. But I dunno I guess I would just suck it up and get it done, without using the *have to* clause.

    I don't tell him we have to have sex, the one time I said we should try and do it every few days I think he held out on purpose! I am almost the sole initiator most of the month (he always seems to try when AF is here...) and it just gets very tiring. I need something to just snap him out of it. A magic wand could do wonders!

    My DH definitely knows when it's "the right time" as that's the only time during the month I diligently initiate for us to DTD! Ha ha ha!

    This month has been weird though - normally he gets cranky with me initiating only during O time, but this month he didn't grumble or anything when I said "they said to DTD tonight and tomorrow". He just did what needed to be done and we both actually enjoyed it!

    By god, I think the man is finally coming around!

But we've agreed that its just about making love any time of the month - which is way more relaxing!
    Dh did admit he is happy its taking so long to ttc because he knows when we get there he will be somewhat cut off! Haha

    Absolutely. The best we've had in recent times was when I came home after being away from DH for 10 days or so. Was nowhere near O so it really was because we just wanted to do it. I wish they were all that enjoyable haha. DH was initially glad it was taking so long because he stresses about money all the time. But now he's more worried about him being the cause of us not being able to fall pregnant.

    Yep. Was all within normal limits except the concentration was a bit low. So he has to redo in a few weeks as they said to not go off just a single sample.

    Won't let me edit above post... I've just re read and morphology is also low.. Hmm. GP didn't say anything about the morphology yesterday. Interesting.

    Me too! Let's hope it is... for everyone!

    (I know that would be a statistical improbability... But not an impossibility!) 😄
