[quote=Simmi1234] V are getting it done as DH as Sperm issues and I have PCOS. As my sister had troubles falling pregnant
I thought before we start trying v should get ourselves checked we both are 30. So before v got into monthly trying we found out we couldn’t conceive as his sperm count was low, antibodies were high, motility low like everything opp of what it should be!!!
So everyone please support me - guide me. As I am very nervous anxious scared???
Can you help me on the below:
I am 94 kg . Will loosing weight make it more favorable?
What diet should I go on?
What should I eat more of and less off?
Will Accupunture help?
Anything specific I can do to give it my best shot??
Thanks so much everyone![/quote]
Hi Simmi, I will gladly join you on this board. I had been considering starting a Sept 2013 IVF board myself. I started 90 days of birth control a few weeks ago and I am preparing for my 2nd IVF to be the 2nd week in September. I will start stimulation at the end of August (next RE appt is Aug 22) and while I am enjoying the summer and don’t want to wish it away…I always get anxious between treatments!
Did I understand you right about not even ‘trying’ before being told to jump into IVF? Are you ‘trying’ in the months between now and September? IVF is pretty hard on the soul, body and pocket book so I wouldn’t let your RE push you into the decision too lightly…while it’s also a good feeling to jump in feet first. I’m sure you have thought it all through! My first RE back in…2009 I guess…seemed to think IVF was the only solution for my hubby and I and we got pregnant on our first IUI with my now nearly 3 year old girl. My RE acted shocked but I was nothing but grateful. Now, round 2…hasn’t been as quick or easy but it’s totally worth it IF it works out in the end!
I don’t know about things to do to make it your best shot but I do think about those types of questions myself a lot. I am taking a handful of vitamins / supplements while on birth control (alpha lipoic acid, CO10, DHEA, B-Complex, prenatal, omega 3, and something that starts with a py…). Some RE’s think the supplements help, seems like most don’t, but I haven’t heard any of them say that taking them in moderation up through stimulation point is a bad idea so…
I don’t know the lb to k equivalent of your weight (lol) but I’m sure it helps to be living a healthy lifestyle prior to the procedure. I am a healthy weight but I was a much more happy weight before I started all the infertility treatments last April. Something about not exercising and all the infertility drugs puts a girl at a disadvantage! I am definetely using these in between months to exercise and try to get into decent shape before my next IVF. I don’t really know if it will help but it certainly can’t hurt!
