Saw my OB finally at my Aug 31 appt to find out my results.
And everything was normal. Me, DH, everything - was normal.
So my guess is probably my age? maybe lifestyle-related (diet, exercise, sleep, etc)?
Next step now is to get a consultation with the fertility clinic. I've been told that they may recommend IUI if I don't want to go IVF (and I'm honestly not sure I really want to at this stage). I'm gonna call them tomorrow and get that appointment set up right away.
After all - I'm getting older all the time.
I know what your going through. I am sorta going
Through the same stuff. I have been trying for almost 2 years now
& I'm getting stressed as ever and I'm getting depressed.
I am heathly as ever & so is my husband. So I don't know what to do
So pleased you have answrs Sophia...although being told nothing is wrong can be frustrating too...its not like they can give you something to make it all okay.
Very happy there is nothing wrong which would stop you having your LO!
Let us know what the ob suggests?
What are you leaning towards?
Huge hugs gorgeous!!

Oh man, sometimes I think hearing everything is, "normal" makes it seem harder to know what to do to get that elusive BFP. I heard that for years until I was finally diagnosed with PCOS. If you consider IUI, maybe you could talk to your Dr. about doing timed BDing since all your DH's stuff came back normal as well?? We chose this option when we did it because it saved up $500 a cycle. Sorry you weren't able to get some definitive answers, but I hope this brings you one step closer to a BFP!!!
Glad everything was normal, but sorry you don't have an answer. Good luck with your next appt. I don't blame you for not wanting to do IVF, I don't, either.
Glad everything was normal. If it was me I would think about clomid and timed bd - way cheaper. Fingers crossed for you honey! And remember, you are younger and a whole lot healthier then me!

Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck!
The Cowtown clinic is AWESOME!!! I wish we had a clinic as wonderful north here, but I am happy we have something rather than nothing

Glad that everything came out normal and I totally understand as I've been there before!
I would try IUI a few times at least before IVF if it were me, especially if nothing seems to be wrong. I guess IVF is never anyone's first choice but at least you know now that nothing is wrong so maybe it will be easier to decide what route to take.
Hopefully making an appointment doesn't take long.
Thank you ladies, I really appreciate the support, I am really touched.
So, I decided to phone, thinking that it's gonna take a long time to get moving on this fertility stuff.
DH and I are now booked for a consultation Sept 27. They told us to book right away for a repeat SA for DH, since they are now booking for the end of Oct. Apparently they want a repeat SA to test different things than what the OB tested (why didn't the OB just test for that the first time...? I'm sure this is not the first time she's had to refer couples to the fertility clinic!).
So DH called....yeah, he's getting the SA on Monday. I've been told all this consultation and stuff takes months....but we appear to be moving fast here!
...I'll be back to talk more. DD calls.
