    My husband and I found out that we could not conceive naturally at the end of 2010 after trying for a year and a half. My husband had a chromosomal abnormality that causes azoospermia. A coupe months later we found out that he had cancer. Due to the cancer we decided to hold off on TTC until he got a clean bill of health. We finely started TTC with Donor IUI in August 2012. I have just tested for my fifth time with a negative pregnancy result. With everything we have been through that negative result is always a huge blow to me. I am just trying to find a way to deal with my disappointment. I am starting to feel like there is no hope. I am 33, have always had regular periods and there is no reason that the Dr's feel that I should have a problem conceiving. However I am starting to feel like there might be something wrong with me.

    It sounds like you're really having a hard time trying to conceive. First, I hope your husband is doing better. There may be an issue with your fallopian tubes or uterus. I would recommend talking to a specialist to find out whether there are any additional tests that you should do before doing another donor insemination cycle.

    Thank you for your reply. I am scheduled for a fluoroscopy on Feb. 13, so fingers crossed that it is something that can just be fixed easily
