I am also a trying SMC. I've been trying for awhile and am now at the DE/DS needing a Gestational Carrier stage. Yes, this is a wonderfully supportive board. However, it does sound as if your own fertility, to the best of your knowledge, at this point, is not at stake. That, again to the best of your knowledge, and how I hope this is so, it is merely a lack of sperm problem and not a fertility problem. (Ha, I think back at a time when I thought this. Alas, I couldn't have been more wrong. BUt you are much younger than I, and also already have a child, so there is no reason to think that is your case) If this is the case, there is a good chance that you will relate better with the SMC boards. Or maybe there are some other network54 boards at the same level of ttc that you are at. It's more of a question of is this board what you can relate to now. Most of the questions here revolve around the DE aspect of infertility. I do applaud your doing this at a stage where you can even consider charting, etc. to test ovulation. I am glad that you are not waiting as long as I waited. I want to cheer you on in your efforts.
