I'm new to this board, and still trying to get all the glossery terms down so I can know what you guys are talking about.
Anyway, I married last Spring at 42, and am now 43 and TTC. My numbers are good, except I have low progesterone. But that's not the real problem here. One year post vasectomy reversal my husband has 100% antisperm antibodies. He's being treated with Prednisone, and I'm on my first day of Clomid -- all in prep for an IUI whenever I ovulate next week. The chances of pregnancy -- considering my age and my husband's condition -- appear to be next to nil. To bolst them I just started accupuncture, and he just started taking herbs (not because he believes in them, but because he loves me and will do anything to give me a child).
Still, I wonder, are we crazy to even try? Are we just setting ourselves up for heartbreak. It's already been so hard emotionally, and we're just at the beginning of the road.
Please Weigh In.
