Name/DH Name Maddy/Sean

Age/DH Age 34/41 soon to be 35/42

How long have you been together? We met january 16, 2002 and was engaged a month later and married August 3, 2002.

How long have you been TTC? Since 01/2006. 8 years.

Do you know what is affecting your fertility? Insulin resistant PCOS now controlled with metformin, and irregular ovulation. We now know I had blocked tubes from the outside, ovaries incased with scar tissue and fat, and a polyp acting as an IUD. All that was fixed 9/11/2013. Providing scar tissue doesnt grow back I shouldnt have anything impeding my fertility

What testing have you had done? CD3 bloodwork, ultrasounds. Had 3 small cysts but they disappeared before surgery, and last CD3 tests were all normal, no indication of PCOS, other than symptoms. I just had surgery in september. I had a Lap, chromotubation, and hysteroscopy. I had a large polyp acting as a IUD, my tubes were blocked from the outside. My tubes and ovaries were wrapped with fat and adhesions. My uterus, tubes, and ovaries were attached to my bowel. All is now fixed and in place, tubes unblocked, and polyp removed. DH has had 2 S/A with all results showing above average 126 and 137 million count, motility was 60% rapid progression, 10% slow progression, and morphology was 50%. He does have low testosterone issues but it doesnt seem to effect his sperm health.

What have you tried (supplements, IUI, OPKs, etc...)? Clomid 6 cycles of 50-150 MGs, Od twice. 7 cycles of Femara Od 6 of them. Every single vitamin supplement on the planet. Soft cups, CBEFM, Saliva ferning monitoring, OPKs, BBT, monitoring CP and CM. I am sure there is lots I have forgotten over the years lol.

What would you consider trying (IVF, donor eggs/sperm, medications, etc..)? We are at this point not willing to move on to IVF. IUI would be of no help to us due to DHs sperm count, according to the doctors. IVF would be our next step from here and we just are not ready for that at this point and might not ever be.

What are your plans for 2013? Making a bebe. I am might be done completely with infertility treatments as far as ovulation inducing meds as concerned. I have done alot of them, and my body and mind are tired form it all. For now I am going to stick with the metformin, hope it regulates my cycles and see if I can make a baby on my own!

Name/DH Name: Marie / Kent
Age/DH Age: 28/32
When is your birthday? September 18th/June 21st
When is your anniversary? October 21st
How long have you been together? 10 years (married 7 of those 10)
Do you have children? Names and ages? No, TTCing #1
Do you have any furbabies? Names and ages? Yes, 3 female black cats. Celeste & Eclipse are about 5. Aurora is about 3.
How long have you been TTC? 2 years TTC & 7 years NTNP
Do you know what is affecting your fertility? I have PCOS and diabetes. We are both overweight. Other than that, we don’t know.
What testing have you had done? Some blood work, 1 ultrasound
What have you tried (supplements, IUI, OPKs, etc...)? Me: Tons of vitamins, OPKs, BBT, Soy Isoflavones, and soon Progesterone Crème. DH: just started FertilAid for men, CountBoost, MotiltyBoost, but in the past he was doing only Vitamin B6, B12, and Calcium. Both of us are trying to lose weight.
What would you consider trying (IVF, donor eggs/sperm, medications, etc...)? As long as we have the money, as far as we can go. I think the one thing we don’t want to do is donor eggs/sperm. If we can conceive one naturally, we would rather adopt.
What are your plans for 2014? We are going to continue to do whatever we can naturally with stuff that we can get over the counter/internet until June (Maybe sooner). After that both of our insurances should be at the max for both of us, so we will then make our first appt with the fertility specialist. Our goal is to get a BFP sometime in 2014.
