Does your husband work around radios or planes? That could be a huge contributor. DH was a radio operator and many guys in his shop who had children prior to the Marine Corps were sterile or had very low sperm count by the end of their first enlistment because of the radiation from the radios and planes.

You have already been TTC for a year so you shouldn't have to start over. I think your best bet would be IUI. Trust me him being the problem is a lot easier than female problems. They will wash the spermicide and only use the good strong healthy sperm. I had to drive just as far as you to the fertility clinic. I preferred my meds from freedom fertility. I did all my ultrasounds and blood work at my local OBGYN they would fax the results that same day over to the fertility clinic. So DH and I only had to drive to the fertility clinic on the day if the IUI. This actually helped me too bc my I durance would pay for my ya and blood if they were done at the OBGYN and not at the fertility clinic.

Nope he doesn't and never has been around them. And we are thinking it has just been that way because we have been trying since the day he got out of Boot Camp when he got Married.

Sadly because it is a Military Hospital that we have to go to and they could care less (I mean they care but yet not 100% like they should) We have to start over on our year of TTC. I am mad but oh well right? And they will do everything they can here, then he has to go to a different base because they don't have everything here, then we have to go to the clinic. There is sadly no way of getting around it. :(
