Hi, and welcome to the first page of our blog whilst trying to conceive.
We are Mutt and Boney (not our real names, obviously) and we've been married for four years. We've been trying for a baby now for, around about, a year and a half, with no success.
The primary reason for this blog, is to tell our story, seek out advice, chat to others in a similar position and to, maybe have a few laughs and (hopefully) fewer tears.
We're currently going through the process (and there's no other word) of fertility testing on the NHS. Boney is having all sort of tests done (ultra-sounds, hormonal blood tests and a HSG (Hysterosalpingogram-try saying that one...lol...)), I (Mutt) have already submitted one sperm count and have been given a very low result (1.2 million) but with good percentages otherwise, I still have got one more to submit for the specialist and am hoping that the result will have improved, as since my last test, I have been on a regime of zinc and folic acid, as I read that this can increase sperm numbers and motility.
Well, that's the introductions done for today, hopefully I can check in regularly and post thoughts, feels and notes. Also, Boney will be adding her thoughts and feelings too.
