and i think i might have just found a hint to our problem... Marks a painter and handles paints, stains, and lacquers every single day! and i just read that it may lead to a low and weak sperm count...and he never wears his damn mask... ERGH...

Well,



My name's Amanda and I've been TTC since August of 2006.



MDs don't want to try too many fertility drugs since technically "I'm medically healthy and perfectly fertile" but 2 years of failed attempts to concieve have got to mean something right?! Argh..



I've been on BG for quite a while now and love all you ladies!



I've never been pregnant, no miscarriages, no NOTHING.



It's depressing, although I'm glad I've never had to go through MC'ing.
I'm hoping that when I FINALLY get preggo that it will stick and I"ll NEVER have to go through that!



Some things we are trying:
*Both of us are losing weight-started the diet today actually, it's supposed to be really good!
*Both of us are trying to eliminate stressors in our life that we see as un-necessary.
*Trying to push DH to get his spermies checked although this is harder than I thought. Considering the home test. He's only 26 and the MD says we prob have nothing to worry about, but just wanna be sure!
*Md playing around with the idea of Clomid if we hit the two year mark with no success.

*Edited to add that I also dabble in checking CM, OPKs, CP, Charting my ovulation and most fertile days, and LOTS AND LOTS OF PRAYER!!!!!


I'm so relieved that this thread is here!!!!!

No.... unfortunately our insurance doesn't cover anything that has to do with infertility and we can't afford to pay for Ivf or any of the other major treatment on our own. We have only been able to use Clomid off and on. It's sad really,,, but with this new doctor and the way they bill things... we might finally be able to at least find out why. 5-6 years with no answers...there may finally be a light at the end of the tunnel. July 7th starts another chapter in our TTC journey.:wink:
