A monthly thread to talk about all of our various journeys through the difficult, trying, and often heartbreaking world of infertility. This thread is a place to chat, vent, get support, cheer each other on, and hopefully occasionally laugh!Trying to Conceive #1anne1140
~26, TTC #1 since Nov. '07. Done: blood work for both, semen analysis 4X, HSG, 2 ultrasounds (1 2D, 1 3D), and varicocele repair. Me: septate uterus, Him: poor sperm morphology and motility, possibly caused by varicocele (repaired now!). Next step: Semen analysis in January to see if the surgery worked, and trying in the meantime.AutumnLaughing
