I'm 30 years old and my husband and I have tried for 6 years to conceive. I have pcos which has posed some very annoying complications. My husband had a semen analysis last January which resulted in only 17% normal sperm and low volume. The Dr wasn't sure if it was accurate so they suggested a second test be done. I've used Clomid but that was before being diagnosed with pcos. I did 5 rounds with no success. I currently take 2000 mg of metformin every day as well as dexamethasone every other day for congenital adrenal hyperplasia. I have watched so many around me succeed where I have failed. I don't discuss it much anymore because I don't see the use. My husband decided a few years ago we needed to hold off persuing serious help with our fertility issues because he didn't feel financially ready. A couple months ago he finally stated he was ready to actively start again but I'm more worried it is too little too late. I was warned after thirty it would be more complicated. Every month I hope to ovulate without help but every month nothing happens. Once my husband decided he was ready I was excited to get the ball rolling only to find out my obgyn would give me Clomid again. Instead, she ordered me an HSG test which will be done next Friday. She bluntly stated if the test showed my tubes were blocked I was screwed. I hope the hsg shows all is clear so we can start something to help me ovulate. So that's my struggle. Day in and day out I hear stop trying and it will happen or when it's your time you will know. SERIOUSLY!!! Just need to vent..
