i dont think its a number of appointments, probally after all the tests are gone through, and they think that is the best thing for you.

Usually after 1 yr of ttc.......i've tried clomid three times without success, but thats because dh's sperm count is too low, now were in the process of IUI.....hopefully it works, but our RE recommended IVF, but we are going to try the other option first a few times before doing that route

We're over a year now, I'm waiting for my next cycle to have an Hsg test down they didn't have any openings for my last. I also had my CD3 test down last week.

Definitely counts. TTC doesn't stop until you take home a baby!

Have you had any testing done for your losses?

Not yet. I have an appointment on the 17th of this month to talk to my midwife and have it done. I'm thinking it's APS, my aunt has it so there is a chance that I have it but I'm crossing my fingers that it's not.

I know women who have APS have to treat it with injections, but is it fairly successful? Might be better to have a diagnosis that can be treated than no diagnosis at all! My only diagnosis is insulin resistance, which was treated in my last pregnancy but then I lost that one too. I just pray that one was a fluke and that it's not something that remains undiagnosed.

My aunt was able to have 4 childre with the treatments. It's aspirin and heparin. I just don't want to have it and then have to leave my midwives practice. I think technically I would be high risk so that would ot be good. I definitly want a diagnosis but then I don't.

so we just got back from our doctor appt and found out hubby has a lower than normal sperm count ( nothing to be worried about) but very low motility. we are gonna start by changing his diet and all that.. but did any of you deal with this? did anything help you naturally?
