How'd we get here... Part Two

So to make a long story short... if you are taking Clomid, you should be monitored with blood-work and ultrasounds. Some of the side effects, if not monitored, can result in doing more harm than good.

While contemplating what to do, we received the results from The Mr's SA. The results weren't all that great. All of his hormone levels were within range but, his count (number of sperm) - motility (movement of sperm) - and morphology (normal shape of sperm) were all low. After some more research and advice from a friend dealing with infertility I decided it was time to call the RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist).

Best.decision.ever.

She put us at ease right away. We went over each of our medical histories, set up appointments to have me monitored, and ordered a second SA. While I didn't yet know where the road would ultimately lead, I felt comfortable taking the journey with this Dr.

Good news - Clomid did make me ovulate...
Bad news - The Mr's second SA came back with even worse results than the first one...
