Good morning lovely ladies, happy hump day!
Sorry I've been MIA lately, taken some time off from the TTC world to get my head straight but am feeling much better now so ready to get back in to it!
Hannah I'm so sorry to hear your news, please do stick around and I hope the drs can shed some light.
Sorry AF arrived MrsMin fx for next month!
MrsPope I can't help much with the testosterone issue, but from a quick google if your DH does have low testosterone apparently there are lots of medications that can help quickly. My DH will be going for a sperm test in a couple of weeks that we are having done privately (costs £140 in London). He used to take x-rays in an old job and although he stood roughly behind a lead wall there is a chance that his sperm production could have been affected. I went to a fertility acupuncturist on Saturday and it was her recommendation to get it tested and as we've only been trying 4 months we wouldn't be able to get it done on NHS.
I've got everything and more crossed for you OmRum!
Tallie I hope your OPKs turn up and you get some answers soon!
Glad to see your blazers Dandelion, I hope you managed to get lots od BDing in
I'm not trying this month (although not actively preventing) and have got no idea what CD I am or when AF is due so I'm just going with the flow! Have acupuncture again tonight which I'm looking forward to, if anyone is in the Surrey area I can definitely recommend the lady I am seeing.
Sorry OmRum I'm also expecting AF any day now, the waiting sucks.
Interesting with all the advice about getting sperm tested- hubs has mentioned having this done several times, butI I (correctly I think) told him the NHS won't do this unless we are having long term TTC problems. He had the mumps when he was a teenager and is concerned this has affected him, however I googled and I don't think he should be too worried. MrsRagdoll let us know if you think paying for the test is worth it!
I'm so sorry OmRum
The acupuncture is for stress and fertility. The lady I'm seeing specialises in fertility but my main focus atm is reducing my physical stress response! Hope the bloods go well MrsPope.
I will update you all with how DHs SA goes, it's booked for 3 weeks today!
Not sure if anyone else has heard this before but the acupuncturist said make sure DH sleeps without any bottom halves on as it keep his bits cool haha
Had not heard the PJs thing! DH hates being even the tiniest bit cold with a passion (he grew up in Taiwan). Not sure I can persuade him into not wearing PJs lol... I'll have to sneakily install some cooling fans into the bedroom or something!!
