Hi, we've been ttc for 14months and just underwent testing. I got the all clear but dh has very low spermcount and motility of 9% ! I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience and still had a baby eventuall ? Was it natural or ivf ? Any tips you can share with how you got pregnant will be greatly appreciated.

Hi - yes I've been through exactly this and it is so hard. My husband had very similar percentages and we were even told it would be difficult to get pregnant - however we did naturally and now have an 18 month old little girl. My husband took the wellbeing conception tablets and after 3 months they made a huge difference in particular to his count going from 9 million to 22 million! He also stopped alcohol and caffene so this could have made a difference too.
Best of luck as I know had tough this can be but it is most definitely possible xx

Thank you for shedding some hope. Were you using opk tests when you got pregnant?
we'll be trying no caffeine and alcohol and vitamins too. Hopefully they will help. it is very frustrating and hard to stay positive.
Thanks again for replying! :)

Yes I used opks which was useful to pinpoint ovulation.
It's so hard to stay positive and I really struggled too but you will get there! However I used to hate people saying that to me! X

Hi, ive been ttc for 11 months. My partner was told that we would not concieve naturally and that our only option was IVF with icsi. We had been looking at IVF and were due to fly out to the Czech Republic at the end of may. I found out that i was pregnant last thursday which was a massive shock to us. I recently started the new clearblue advanced fertility monitor (1st month, although had been using the old version up to this point) with preseed and my partner has been taking wellman for the past 8 months, he also quit smoking which i think has played a huge part in this. i know its really hard but you need to stay positive and do something to take your mind of it. For me i believe it was arranging the IVF abroad with a combination of the new monitor and i would definitley recommend Pressed. Wishing you all the luck with your ttc journey xx
