You, TTC, and Your Partner

Your Trying to Conceive partner is, of course, there physically. Is he also emotionally supportive, especially if you get a BFN when you hoped this would be the month? Is he open to on-going TTC related talk when you want/need it?

The men in our lives take it just as hard

My husband and i have been trying for the last ten months to get pregnant with no luck. It is very hard for me but this month was very hard on my husband he was so disapointed when af came i was three days late and we both tought this was it so when i told him af came he had tears in his eyes. He was very depressed for a few days afterwards i did my best to comfort him and be strong for me but we are both slowy giving up hope. We cant afford to go for tests to see if there is something wrong with one or both of us. So if we dont get pregnant naturally we are not going to have baby number three.

We have two girls age 11 and 9 . Our prayers are with all couples trying to get pregnant and ladies dont forget the men take it just as hard as us. GOOD LUCK TO ALL

Not sure what to do anymore - TTC.

I'm hoping to conceive but my cycle is so erratic. I've lost weight recently with the hopes that my cycle will normalize for an easier time at guesstimating my ovulation but so far. I can't figure my cycle out - one month I'm 30 days out the next 26 days. It's frustrating especially since I'm in my mid-30s and concerned about not being able to conceive. Any suggestions???

I <3 My Husband

I've had my days. I want a baby sooooooo bad. Then I'll be so upset that I just feel like giving up. And of course, I vent my frustrations on my husband. But he calms me down and lets me know how much he wants a baby too and that we need to keep trying. That it's not just me trying to get pregnant. He's very reassuring with it.

Consider Male Fertility Too

Remeber ladies, that almost half of all fertility issues are male related. Have your partners get checked. Right after my girlfriend got married, she had terrible abdominal pain. She went to the ER and found that her fallopian tubes were about to rupture and had to be removed. As a result she turned to IVF. During the IVF process, they determined that her husbands sperm were round shaped and not pointed enough to penetrate the egg. They would likely not have been able to conceive on their own anyway. They now have a beautiful 10 mo old baby girl!

Frustrations of male issues..You may be in the same boat.

I'm with everyone in the same boat. My husband and I have been trying for a LONG TIME... YEARS We found out three years ago he had a low sperm count and it had bad form and movement. I cried for three days. We went yesterday to get results from a well known fertility doctor of a new analysis to find that everything had doubled and the motility and everything is good. He does however have oxidized stress causing breaks in the DNA of the sperm but we should be able to conceive. He has to take vitamins. This doctor recommends men to take Vitamin E, vitamin C, L Cari tine and a normal multivitamin. It helps keep the sperm healthy and build them up with what they need. So keep us in your prayers. I will keep you all in mine.

I advise all women to have their men try these same vitamins....

Sperm trouble

ok, me and my husband have a wonderful 3 year old little boy (so we know we can have kids, it happend before with no planning or trying). We have been TTC for 14 months, but truly we have not been preventing for about 2 1/2 years. We finally got his sperm tested and they say he has normal sperm count and normal motility, but the morphology is a little off (this is the shape of the sperm) which is preventing the sperm from penetrating my egg. I found out the news and we made a few changes, but he has no insurance, so he can't afford to go to the urologist like the Gyno suggested, so I am feeling very blah..I feel like it doesn't matter because nothing will help and it takes three months for sperm to mature and develop to be used, so the earliest any of the changes we are making would possibly help would be three months from now and I am so upset, I wanted to be pregnant by now, I don't want our son to be 4 or 5 before we have another baby! Anyone understand or have advice for me...
