Fertility Issues & Erectile Dysfunction

My Story

This is the long and short of my story, to this day. I don't care if anyone reads it, or even responds to this. I just need to get things out.

A year ago, I stopped taking birth control pills (Tri-Cyclen 21). After that, I had three normal periods. Then, Auntie Flow stopped visiting me. Now, this may seem like a blessing, but really, it's not. Missing a period or two here and there, is a blessing. Not having one for months and months on end is another thing.

Wishin' & Hopin' & Prayin'....

I can't remember the rest of the words to the song (to my blog title), but it's exactly how I feel when it comes to trying to have a baby. This is my first blog entry ever. I thought I would do this to get my feelings out there because I can't quite find a blog from someone who has gone through what I have. Maybe by doing this I will connect with someone who understands what I'm going through. All of the fertility blogs I have read are either by someone who has gone through far worse than I have, or someone who was infertile when I started reading, but is now blissfully pregnant.

The New Year brings New Hope. This years my husband and I are going to do everything to mike our dreams come true of having a baby. We have already started on our New Years Resolution. We need a surgery for I can try to conceive again. I had a tubal ligation after my daughter was born back in 1998 not knowing what my future would bring. Resolution number one. Save enough money to get my tubes reversed. Mike has just started a second job and our first deposit into savings should be this Wednesday. Resolution number two I have to lose weight or the doctor will not do the surgery.

Exercise After Intrauterine Insemination

Dear Fitness Expert,
My husband and I have been trying for 1 1/2; years to conceive and are now under the care of a reproductive endocrinologist. I have been an avid runner and do some moderate weight lifting for about 6 years now. We had the Intrauterine Insemination a little over a week ago and I am dying to work out, but many people have said to just hang tight for a couple of weeks.

Is this necessary? Will running or lifting some weights have any affect on conception? Please advise...
