Hi Claire .
Things have been a bit rough this past year . OH's 4 SA all came back showing he has a low sperm count 8%,my HSG went well & showed that my tubes aren't blocked . My OH has a spinal cord injury he done in an accident in 1999 & they've told us that it affected his sperm,so we were then told we could have IUI at the hospital that treated him,we were over the moon & went to the appointment in Feb only to be told that we couldn't have it for free as OH has 2 kids from before his accident & they hadn't been aware of that,we were gutted . I tried to join an egg sharing programme but found out a couple of weeks ago that i can't cos my AMH came back at 4.2,which is low for my age,31 .I felt like i'd been punched & it was a big shock Anyway we've talked about it & are going to continue ttc with the syringes & tubes we were given at the clinic in Feb & time it around ovulation .I've been using the persona monitor for a few months & i get my eggy symbol on that ,never once had a positive opk . I'm also going to use the soft cup,conceive plus & i've just ordered some DHEA,which i've read helps with eggs like mine as well as claiming to have other good benefits . So we'll see what happens & maybe we'll get a miracle BFP . Anyway that's what i've been up to. All the bad stuff has been thrown at us this last year & basically theres nothing else left to hurt us with,so we're looking ahead to the future & taking things as they come,you never know what's around the corner,i've learnt that lesson lately.
Hope your doing okay & taking care of yourself?

Oh God Shellie, you really have had a year of it. Im sorry you have been through hell. Sometimes it just seems to hit you one thing after another. Good on you for you positive thoughts and carrying on ttc, Im sure it takes a lot of positive mental attitude from you both.!! Well I know some of the results arent what you would want but at least you tubes are clear thats really positive. I was told after my EP iin 2008 to keep trying with the 1 remaining tube. A year later (Feb 2009) my HSG showed my remaining tube was almost completely blocked barely a dribble of dye got through. I was devestated and my hubby tried to comfort me but at nearly 36 I thought it was game over. I had 2 children and thought that was it. Was told IVF was only option and couldnt afford it. We went away and was waiting for hubbys SA and to see where we could go in any where from their. At the end of Feb 2009 I found out I was pg. Must of concieved within 2 wks after my HSG! I had bleeding and early scans (many believe me) and so much worry that I was having another EP. But Matilda is now here. So miracles do happen, we have been blessed. You sound like you are doing everything possible and giving you best shot. I hope you too are blessed, I really do.
Take care hun and lets us know how all is going.
