:( :( :( :( Hi Girls - Hope you don't all mind me joining in on what for me is a desperate desperate day (and I know there are others in worse situations so feel sorry even writing this)
Have just started bleeding on day 12 of 2ww. Can't believe its failed again - this must be our 6th attempt I think at ICSI, I have stopped counting now! Me and DH suffer with low sperm count (low mobility) can't remember exact scores sorry - anyway we have got through to the 2ww wait each time even though I now seem to be producing few eggs - I've gone from 8 at my best to 3 the past 2 times, although each time I have been lucky enough to have 2 embies to put back - so what I produce so far has been good quality.
That doesn't make me feel any better now however given that my body seems to be rejecting them every time!!!
I have children from a previous relationship many, many years ago - won't bother you with the story but suffice to say he (my ex partner) didn't treat me very well in the end - am now with such a brilliant man and would love to share a child with him from the beginning - he is such a fab step dad - is that so wrong?
whats worse is my ex husband went on to 'sow his seed' left, right and centre (he sees none of his children) - that doesn't bother me really - its just the injustice of it all, although I am sure we all know situations like that.
I'm going on I know - its just my DH - he's still so positive it will happen one day - me I'm finding that very hard to believe at this moment !!!!
HELP! Is there anything we can do naturally to improve sperm mobility/count - we cant remember numbers but remember that his second test (a year ago now) was much improved and we have since had DH on vitamins and better diet to try and improve things naturally but get confused with what to try - is that possible?? will see my consultant to to discuss whether to have another try at ICSI - not sure if its possible to get a positive result after so many negs - has anyone else been through as many tries as this?
Just reaching out really - am still fairly new to this site and not sure where I fit in - I'd appreciate any help as feel so helpless !!!! xxxxxxx

Hi sweetheart

Sorry couldn't reply earlier.  So sorry you have had yet another BFN.  I've only had 3, I can't imagine how hard it must be for you.

There are a few on the boards who've been through multiple failures.  Have you been on the multiple cycle/high FSH/poor responder thread on the ICSI board?  There's a wealth of knowledge aboiut how different protocols can affect your eggs and much debate about which clinic is best for which problem.  There are a few ladies on this board who've also had multiple failures due to MF, we should start our own thread on this board!

Have you been at the same clinic each time?  Have you tried different protocols?  How's your FSH (mine went up after 3 cycles in 1 year but seems to have settled down again).  Have you had any investigations to see if anything else is afoot?  (fluid in tubes, abnormalities in uterine cavity/endometriosis etc never mind the more controversial stuff like immune issues, genetic overlap etc)

Has your DH had any further investigations to follow up on low count (chromosomal issues?)

If you're even thinking of trying another cycle, it's worth getting all of these things checked out.  The best clinics have astonishing success rates because they take the time to look at every possible issue and try to optimise every step of your cycle.
