About Me / My Trying to Conceive StoryI'm a 28 year old woman living in Tokyo. I've lived with my now husband for 3 years, and we just got married in December. That was also around the time we started actively trying for our first baby.
We've ended up on the tricky roller coaster of fertility treatments. I have PCOS, and my husband has low motile sperm. We recently tried our first IUI cycle, but due to the ebb and flow related to my husband's motile count, (it goes up and down every time that he gives a sample), we were advised to discontinue IUI after our first attempt, (Dec. 8, 2012), and move towards IVF, instead. We were told IUI would lead to a much lower success rate, and thus a loooong, long time spent in treatment, rather than the much higher success rates of IVF, given my husband's issues. It might also cost more, in the end.
Currently, I am in the 2ww after the first IUI but am expecting AF in a couple of days, at which point we are immediately moving into IVF. It's exciting but nerve-wracking, and we are eager for a positive as soon as possible.
