This has been a huge problem for us! It makes me feel awful and him feel awful ugh. I think a combination of pressure and age have come in to play. My DH is 35 and most of the time has no performance issues but I think he is getting to that age where it starts to happen. I don't think he has the highest testosterone levels either. Good luck with the IUI. I think there are a few of us that have the potential to be pg at the same time:)

Hi-



I don't have endo but I have PCOS. I have succesully gotten pregnant in the past but in last 18 months something has changed and it has become imposssible. I keep praying and hoping and trying. 3 failed rounds of clomid and next time it will be femera! Good luck I can see why you would want to do IVF!!!

I always went in to "help" DH with his sample bc I felt more weird thinking of him sitting in there by himself looking at magazines. The nurses always looked at me weird. But we're married for crying out loud.

I have been blessed with a wonderful OB that works closely with the area RE! I wish everyone had access to one.

I had a huge problem with that!!! I didn't know they checked out stuff. I still have a hard time thinking about it. I know some people are ok with it but I feel like it's a form of cheating. Call me crazy!

I actually got a positive opk all by myself no meds and at a normal time cd 18. I'm trying not to be so excited because it doesn't mean I ovulated but I feel better since I didn't get a positive with the last 2 rounds of clomid. Although after research that might have been since I reused my digital opk with left over test strips. Anyway if any of you ladies know anything about sperm analysis I posted this and got no replies. http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about2450688.html



I'm so excited for the weeks to come with everyone in here!!!

Ya I would agree with you about the cheating part. My DH doesn't have performance issues but he's 8 years younger than me so he's only 23. So he can never get enough! Lol!

Yay for your positive opk!!!! :) that's great!!! As for the sperm analysis, I wouldn't be concerned unless the doctor sees a problem with it, I wish I knew more about it but I don't I'm sorry!!!! My DHs came back 0 so I'm not really sure of what the counts and motility should be but maybe he can do a repeat?

Lucky you!!! I think I'm super insecure so the thought of him getting off to another women makes me feel like he wants to have sex with her. My DH works in the beer industry. It seems like a lot of the guys in his industry are unfaithful womanizers. Every time I've gone to his work parties I have been hit on by one of his bosses or his coworkers. As of right now he is a salesman for Rockstar energy drinks. He is suppose to sell to coffee stands and stuff. He has to sell to some of these skanky gross pastie shops. I told him it was disrespectful of me to set anymore of these accounts up ( he never set any up it was the guy that had the job before him) and there were plenty of other places to go. I know he doesn't want to go to them it makes him uncomfortable. But he said its only a matter of time before his boss bugs him and asks why these certain places aren't their account. I personally think he should say I'm married man and I think it's disrespectful of my wife to go into them. But he wants to kiss his bosses A$$, who is a slimey douche bag, and do whatever he says. I get where he is coming from but I think it's completely unnecessary and there are plenty of other places to sell to. Sorry that was long winded and I'm still upset from our convo about it lol.
