Hey tinkb. I am on CD8 and will start IVF next cycle. So about 3 weeks away. Does 85 relate to your year of birth? So young! So you have a reason why it isn't happening naturally? How did your scan go.

So you've finally got the ball rolling HappilyMarried after the admin stuff up. Best wishes for you.

My first time too! I think we might be a similar age. I'm both excited and nervous too. I have done iui before so I'm prepared for the needles etc..just not quite so many! Did you get your dates for stimming yesterday?

Yes shellster, finally got dates which feels good just hope it all goes to plan and then works! How are you? X

That's a shame, how long had you been taking them for? X

I have to take mine for three weeks too, the originally said two but I'm going to be on holiday so it will be three by the time I go back for my scan. Fingers crossed everything is ok on Wednesday, I know what it's like when you mentally prepare yourself you just want to get started don't you! X

Just been reading some ladies take 6 weeks hope its not that long x

It's not my fist time *tinkb. Sadly, this will be my 6th time! My hubby has sperm issues too - abnormal morphology. Don't know if it's any assistance to you but our first SA showed everything bad. I gave him a concoction of supplements and the motility and count improved to normal. Just can't change the abnormal morph. But I assume after 3 years you have tried everything and know how frustrating it is when people offer useless suggestions, so I am sorry if that offends.

Enjoy your holiday Happily before all the drama begins!

I know! I'm just trying to get myself in the best possible shape at the moment, eating well, exercising, not drinking, the usual! Got endo scratch booked and the embryo monitoring thing so I'm just itching to get started now! We are unexplained at the moment, dh morph isn't great byt everything else is fine so doctor didn't think it would be problem! First iui worked but ended in miscarriage so I'm hoping that we are first time lucky!

How are you getting in shellster? You are amazing to have gone through 5! How does you stop it from taking over your life? X

What did you try shellster would love you to share as unfortunatly you have experience. We not really had any medical advice on it they seem to have left us. We did however read up and had selenium, zinc and magnesium but not sure it helped much. How have you gone thru this so many times im having such a hard time already decided were adopting if this doesnt work.

i hope it works for all of us happily its gettin closer to your start date ☺

Tink, here is a list of what I give to my husband: Fish oil, L-Arginine, Pycogenol, CoQ10, Vitamin C, Sperm Max and Zinc. Did your husband do a repeat analysis after taking the supplements or have you only had the one done?

Happily, sounds all very promising for you if your IUI worked first time (but sadly, miscarried).

How do I get through so many times without it taking over? Not sure! It kinda has taken over! But I have just booked into a nursing entrance exam so studying for that is taking my mind off things for a bit while I wait to start IVF.

I need to have a normal ovulating cycle before my IVF cycle for the protocol that I want to do. But I sadly don't think I ovulated this cycle as it is day 14 and I have not hand anything close to fertile cervical mucus (sorry, tmi). Just have to wait and get a day 19 blood test to see if my progesterone has risen, before I am due to start taking estrogen on day 20. So it's an anxious wait until I get that blood result.
