Feels a bit weird being a guy on this but I want to be proactive.
We've been trying for a child for 18 months and we went to the doctors to "chat". My girlfriend is 36 this year and one blood test indicated she wasn't ovulating. The second indicated that she was. It looks like an inconsistency thing. My semen analysis was ok but the volume was a bit low.
Doctors said we have to be trying for 24 months. Worryingly I read an NHS website this morning that said 36 months. That'd kill my other half.
While the NHS isn't perfect and it is frustrating (especially if you ain't got the monies) I want to remain proactive and doing stuff rather than letting it drain and depress us.
Other than 'having sex' and making sure we're eating and living healthily... is there anything anyone recommends to stack the odds in our favour?
I'm not going to sit around waiting.
