I have had a failed IVF. Why do they ask you to wait 3 months before retrying? We are still trying naturally and this month I had a late period which is very unlike me and thought I had some pregnancy symptoms (slight nausea in early morning and fatigue). I'm wondering about the issue of oestrageon / progesteron balance? Could it be my hormones are not balanced correctly since the IVF?

doctor1 MD

My husband has been on Treatment to raise his T levels. First he used Testim gel for several months, now he is using injections, which he gives himself at home. My concern is we would like to conceive, and we know these treatments can lower sperm count. He is reluctant to do a Semen analysis, but I think it may be the only way to know if conception is possible. The Urologist he is using has suggested it, and also wants him to start HCG which can raise his sperm count. All very confusing, can you enlighten me?
