I wish mine would come already. I have no symptoms of her showing unless the headaches I'm getting is a sign. I sure hope so. I'm ready to get these hormones tested. I'm tired of waiting for answers and ready to move a step closer to getting our rainbow.

Quoting Katie & Clay's Mommy!:" Here's a complete list of what's in his vitamins: Vitamins A, C, D3, E, K B6 &12 Thiamin ... [snip!] ... are the ones in it. All the same things that are in Fertilaid. It supports engery, metabolism, heart, and prostate health."


Fertilaid is such a rip off. I try to warn ladies on here about it. It doesn't even have the herbs that help with sperm count and all that. Most on here don't listen to me.



I would also buy your husband some Maca, you can even take it too; it helps both men and women. Maca can increase sperm production in men by 40%. For women Maca balance hormones. I would also buy him some Horny Goat Weed, I know the name sounds strange. It also helps with sperm production and raising testosterone. I can tell you from DH's S/As that those two herbs really help!

Quoting Katie & Clay's Mommy!:" Wow that sucks. My hubby is 22 and I never would have thought he'd be low. I mean we got preggo with ... [snip!] ... 30 right now which I usually go 32-35 days now before AF shows. I started my vitex yesterday so hoping it works fairly quickly."


We never thought that DH had issues with his sperm either. We got pregnant on our own but miscarried. He's in pretty good health besides asthma, and allergies. His weight has always been around 130, he's 140lbs now. He doesn't smoke, doesn't drink.

My husband has pretty decent health, too. I had always wondered if he had problems with his sperm though. He's obese and I got pregnant on our first month with Jace (with my ex). Sad... he has no other issues, he doesn't drink and he doesn't smoke. His dad had 5 kids... it's unfair how things turn out sometimes.

It definitely is! Every other woman in my family, even extended family, is extremely fertile. It's weird though, I always knew in the back of my head I'd have issues, even as a teen.

Really?! Even as a teenager? I never saw our issues coming... although I was a little nervous because as a teenager I struggled with anorexia. I lost a lot of weight quickly (like 50lbs in 3 months) and didn't get a period for a long time. Everyone told me I might have fertility issues when I got older. I got pregnant with Jace on our first try and we got pregnant with our first try with IUI with donor sperm... So I guess you just never know.

It is unfair :(



Infertility seems to run on my side of the family. My mom is infertile, she has PCOS. She never used BC, it took her 5 years to get pregnant with me. It took her 11 years to get pregnant with my sister who she lost before 20 weeks. My mom's sister is infertile she was never able to have children. My mom's younger brother is infertile and is wife is too. My mom's older brother is pretty fertile though, he has 3 kids all 1.5 apart.



In a PCOS has been a blessing to me. I was diagnosed at 16 after not having a period for years. I was told that I'm infertile, I'm an only child and I knew I always wanted a family. After being diagnosed I got my life in order I guess you could say. When everybody my age was graduated from high school I finished up my medical billing and coding classes. When I was 18 DH and I talked about starting a family so we started to save money just in case we'd have to do IVF. I think about 3 weeks into our relationship I told him that I'm infertile and I may never have children, I told him he should leave me if he wants kids. He thought about it, he knew he wanted a family at some point.. He decided to stay with me.

Yep, even then. It was just some nagging feeling. That combined with the fact that I started my period a lot later than my other friends and it was always all over the place just sent up tons of red flags. Thank God I respond well to injections, though. Both times I've used injections/IUI I've gotten pregnant.

How old were you when you started your period out of curiosity? So glad injections worked :)

That's young :( I was 13... I started it later than a lot of my friends, though.
