Welcome ICWLers!

This is my first time participating in the ICWL, and I wanted to welcome you all to my blog. Thanks for stopping by! As you can see, I'm a relatively new blogger who is also new to IF.

You're arriving less than a week after my DH's varicocele repair surgery that will *hopefully* raise his sperm's motility, which has tested at 3-5%. We'll know in about 3 months if the surgery helped.

You're also arriving less than a week after I got the results from my 7dpo progesterone blood test, which was 8.3. Ugh. This has been a bit of a blow since it adds another IF issue to our already existing MFI. That seemed like enough for one couple, but now we're adding luteal phase disorder, low progesterone, and/or weak ovulation to the mix. I still have a lot to figure out with this one.

I look forward to meeting you and reading your blogs!

Hello! We're in the midst of a 3 month wait as well as DH was put on parlodel to reduce his prolactin levels in December!

Yay for ICLW! I did it for the first time last month and was horrible at it. I so shouldn't have done it when I was going to be out of town the whole week. Oops! But I'm going to be so much better this week!

Hi- Thanks for stoppping by my blog. I have LPD too and am on progesterone. This is also my first ICLW.

I hope your dh's surgery helps you in your journey.

Hello via ILCW

Welcome to the blogosphere and I'm praying for you that the surgery is effective. Three months is surely a long time to wonder!

I found you through ICLW. :) My dh's SA was not good either his first go round. His second one is this Friday. I haven't had my day3 blood test yet, but i don't O regularly.

So we're in the boat of both of us having "issues"

I hope your DH feels better. Yay for EWCM though!
