Hi. I've been moreso of a lurker on this board. I had posted on the TTCYFC for awhile but soon began lurking there too. Thought I'd share my story in case anyone else can find hope or other information from it. My story in short.....TTC x 16 cycles. My age 31, DH 34. DH diagnosed with teratospermia (abnormal morphology 3-3.5% normal shaped) but otherwise normal counts, motility, etc. Much later on I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (my FSH is 9, AMH 0.48). We tried naturally for 12 cycles, then tried one cycle of clomid with timed intercourse, then 2 IUIs with clomid. After the 2nd IUI was when I learned of my DOR. We then made the decision to move forward to IVF mainly b/c I didn't know how much longer I might have to produce eggs. We switched RE's and

so on the 7th day you were getting HPT positives? I'm curious. I just did an HPT.... not to think it'd tell me I'm preggy... I'm only 3dpt, but because I wanted to be sure when I DID start testing it was pregnancy and not the HCG trigger shot.


I feel like I jinxed myself testing, but I wanted to be sure the HCG was out of my system!

I also tested on day 3 post transfer for a "baseline" to see if the HCG trigger was out of my system. It was negative. So yeah, 7 days post transfer and 10 days post retrieval i was getting faint positives. GL and FX for you!

Thank you so much! This is exactly what I needed to read tonight....I have 4 mature eggs this cycle, all 4 have fertilized (as of yesterday) but I won't hear how they are until Thursday and hopefully a 5-day transfer. Your story is really giving me some hope!

Blessings for a happy and healthy 9 months!
