I NEED SOME ENCOURAGEMENT

I AM 23 YEARS OLD AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET PREGNANT FOR 4 YEARS NOW. I WAS ON CLOMID FOR 7 MONTHS WENT TO A RE AND THEY TOOK ME OFF. WE WERE SHOCKED TO FIND OUT HOW MANY ISSUES ME & MY HUSBAND HAD! I HAVE A CYST ON MY OVARY W/  7 OR 8 MORE QUESTIONABLE AREAS THAT THEY ARE NOT SURE ABOUT YET! HE ALSO THINKS I HAVE ENDOMETREOSIS(?) AND MY OVARIES ARE NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY POSSIBLY PCOS BUT NOT SURE ALSO A HORMONE PROBLEM! MY HUSBAND WAS TESTED THE SAME DAY AND HIS COUNT IS ONLY 200,000 OUT OF 20 MILLION W/ NO MOBILITY AND POOR QUALITY! SO WE DEFINITELY HAVE OUR ODDS STACKED AGAINST US! I NEED SOMEONE TO GIVE ME SOME ADVICE OR A GREAT SUCCESS STORY UP THE SAME LINES!!! PLEASE!!!

With dh's count being that low you may have no other option but ivf.  Fortunately, ivf can get around some problems that you have.  What does your RE suggest?  If your insurance covers ivf you should probably discuss this option with your doc.
Good luck!

don't give up. one of my old high school friends was told she would never be able to have kids because of all the scar tissue on her ovaries resulting from the removal of cysts. it crushed her and it almost costed her her marriage. she stopped having periods after they removed all the cysts and she went in to see her ob/gyn in november and found out she was 5 months preg.!!!! it's possible don't give up hope! try what you can but just remember to relax and it'll happen!! good luck i know you'll do great!

i know how you feel i have pcos and it is very frustrating,however i have 2 kids and i was pregnant last year and had a miscarriage. i think i'm pregnant now but all the test say no. i tried taking geritol and it worked for me. i got pregnant twice taking it and i am taking it now and my periods 3wks late. i dont know if geritol will work for you but if your like me id try almost anything. have your husband to take them too. it wont hurt because its only a multi vitamin and you can pick it up at any drug store. but i've heard of some wonderful stories about the geritol and it worked for a lot of people in my family. i hope this helps:) because i know how you feel

I would definitely look into IVF.  I think that would be your best option.

OUR INS DOESN'T COVER IVF AND OUR CHANCES ARE VERY SLIM WITH HIS COUNT AND MY PROBLEMS! WE ARE NOT SURE WHAT WE WILL DO!
