So my dh and I had our first appt at the fertility clinic, were only going to be able to get pregnant via ivf as of today, she wants me to lose 20lbs. At minimum 20lbs. She put dh on a vitamin regimen to hopefully boost motility and maybe then we will be able to do it the natural way but I still need to lose 20lbs. We have another appt in 3 months to check dh swimmers and my weight. So I HAVE to do this!!! Wish me luck ladies!!!

Good luck. I'm hoping you will be able to get pregnant the old fashioned way once you lose the weight. Good luck mama

Did she say what the specific reason is?  Are your fallopian tubes blocked in some way or do you have cysts on your ovaries?  The fertility specialist I worked with told us that IVF is a last resort procedurce, after you've tried all of the other options, improved diet and weight, etc.

Did she have lab results or was all of that drawn today?  I can tell you from previous experience that if your thyroid is off, even just a tiny bit, it can radically affect how your sex hormones function.  My thyroid was under performing by a statistically insignificant number but it messed up my estrogen/progesterone function enough to cause all kinds of fertility problems.  Simply by eliminating petroleum based cleaning and beauty products, and eating a cleaner diet, I was able to get my thyroid back to normal function AND get pregnant twice without any effort at all (baby 1 was a Clomid baby while my thyroid was still healing).

I was just told that there was a chance I had PCOS. So I'm on day 3 of going to the gym! I look forward to going tomorrow.
