What We've Tried

Though we have yet to try any artificial reproductive techniques yet, we have tried some other things:

Me: prenatal vitamins, coQ10, selenium, fish oil, baby aspirin, L-arginine, B6, D3, calcium, magnesium
Husband: multi-vitamin, coQ10, vitamin C, fish oil, selenium, L-carnitine, L-arginine, zinc

Basal Body Temperature (BBT) and Charting
Off and on, I have tracked my basal body temperature using a basal body thermometer every morning at the same time. I use the Fertility Friend app to chart my temperature, cervical mucus, ovulation tests, intercourse, and menstruation.  

Ovulation Predictor Kits (OPK)
I have mostly used the cheepy online opk's. I have a hard time getting a positive even though I've tried different times of the month and usually for at least 10 days at a time. 

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medications
I saw a doctor of oriental medicine for about 6 months. I had weekly acupuncture and both my husband  and I drank powdered herbal medications. 

I had a laparoscopy in July 2012 at which time I was diagnosed with Grade III endometriosis. I also had chromotubation that revealed clear tubes.

Lupron Depot
I began taking lupron in December 2012 and will have monthly injections for 4 months total.
