    DCR2003 posted:
    So i just am REALLY curious, last year at this time i was pregnant within a month but unfortunetly i miscarried and had a D&C. Its been over a year now, got diagnosed in August with PCOS, even tho the only symptom i have is Cysts, Just was wondering, if things can change with the guy?? I just dont get why we havent been able to concieve even with me ovulating and on metformin..?? It doesnt make sense. I thought that the only way things can change with the guy is if he has had trauma, which has not happened really confused?? Any insight would be good. We have a FS appoint in January but it jsut seems like we arent getting anywhere with me ovulating and on met..thanks

    maybe you just got lucky the first time and he's always had these issues? but things could change with the man after awhile...9 years ago my husband and i had 2 boys 14 months apart with pretty much no trying. but after our 2nd was born there were 4 years between pregnancies. He has low sperm count now, but obviously didnt back then.
    Hopefully he can get tested to rule out anything on his part. I wish you luck!

    Ya that could be. Thats interesting about your hubby, you just never know right?! I am thinking about gettin him to try maca root just while we wait for our FS appt. Ive heard some good things about it.

    We both just started taking maca a few weeks ago. Even if it doesnt do anything to boost fertility, it definitely boosts your libido....for both men and women
