My name's Jenny. I have been married for 12 years and seperated for 5 of them. My husband and I are back together and stronger then ever. We have been ttc for 8 months(6 of them on chlomid) and becasue of my age-38-have been sent to a fertility specialist. I go next week to talk about a "treatment" plan. I am so full of different emotions...why is this so difficult, what if it works and something's wrong, what if it doesn't work. My head is constantly running with questions. I don't really have anyone to talk/vent to. My husband has been wonderful but there's only so much he can do to make me feel better. I just feel very overwhelmed! Thanks for listening!

I am going through similar feelings, married 13 years no kids TTC for last year actively and several years before just off and on "whatever happens happens" kinda deal. We are 40 and we got some prelim test done in March and it was the hubby, first 0 sperm count then went bacl for 2nd SA and low count with not good quality sperm. Go back in July, he is taking a boat load of vitamins and supplements to boost sperm production. Supposedly there was evidence of a prostate infection that damage his right prostate lobe... Go figure, we are still hoping to conceive on our own but we were also told to see fertility specialist for more test on me to make sure eggs are good ovaries are good etc... And come up with plan... Very emotional and easy for mind to work overtime and so overwhelming! Esp at late 30 to early 40 age group.

Hi yes I am going through the same feelings it is quite overwhelming all of this.  I am 35 years old have been trying for 9 months.  I had one chemical pregnancy.  I had the saline test and everything was normal on this.  I had a blood test and vaginal ultrasound during ovulation and estrogen is low and my largest folicle was 14mm.  They want me to go back in tomorrow morning to check blood and size again on follicle.  They seem to think I will have to do injectibles to make this all happen.  So yesterday I was just crying and I kept talking with my husband as well.  I think he is getting worn out from me just going to him constantly about it all.  It's just overwhelming and makes you very emotional.  What have you all had tested or gone though?
