Green light at last
Well, my husband just found out that he might be the cauze of our infertility. He did a sperm test and the doctor found that 96% of his sperm died , 3% was abnormal and only 1% was right. The doc told us that with 1% healthy sperm he will never impregnate me, and the cauze was high cholesterole and hypertension. So he is on treatment for that and we are still hopefull.
Sometimes we as woman think the problem is wiht us but its not.
I'm scaredI'm 32 years old. 5 year married, and trying to be pregnant.
A year ago I had an ectopic pregnancy so they removed my right tube. This year they find cancer on and in my ovaries, so they remove both.
Now the only way I could get pregnant is by having my younger sister to donate a egg, the only problem now is that the in vitro cost lots of money.
I don't know what to do... Does someone have an advice?
Please someone help me.
God's gift to ushi. i just wanted to briefly tell my story and hopefully encourage someone out there.
first off, i'm NOT an overwhelmingly lucky person. i am a person of faith and so my husband and i did do Alot of praying.
here's our story:
We had been married for a few years and had stopped using bc altogether. I started to suspect a problem and began seeking dr's about whether things were ok with my reproductive organs. all my tests came back normal. frustrated i changed dr.s and found that i had a rather large fibroid overtaking my uterus and immediately had it removed. still no baby.
finally, the examining eye turned towards my husband. when he finally gave a specimen he was diagnosed with azoospermia(sp) = no adult sperm. he was devastated. we found a specialist who told him that there were round sperm cells in his testicles but they weren't developing to the next stage (no tails for swimming to the egg). They suggested IVF with ICSI.
well, to make a long story short it turns out that my husband did have some adult sperm 10MIl ,(extremely low count, but more than what they thought they would find), and we got pregnant on first try!!
So don't be discouraged somethings even the drs don't know! Follow their advice of course but i'm saying that they don't always have all of the answers.
Trying to complete my love familyI have been with my husband for 8 years but married for 6 weeks, I have a son from a previous relationship whom is 12 years old, I have been pregnant 4 times but I only have my son at the moment (thank god).
I have been pregnant twice for my husband and lost both one at 26 weeks and the second at 10 weeks, I was last pregnant in 2002 and have not been on any contraception since, I would love more than anything to have a baby with my husband.
I am about to start ovarian stimulation so fingers crossed and I will keep you posted
waitingmy husband and I have been trying for 13 months now. Testing of hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy and yesterday hsg. They were horrible and painful, but I kept saying this is for the baby. I too have my concerns with IVF and hope that we can get pregnant before that is recommended.
the two week wait each month is torture, just to get AF again. The dr. said that I will be at increased rate this month due to the HSG and that my tubes appeared normal. I will get full report tuesday....
so here I wait.....
