I've been on and off this board for the past year. DH and I have been TTC for 2 years now. We found an RE in our area and had our first appointment 2 weeks ago.
I had my CD3 bloodwork done, which all came back normal. A week ago, DH had an SA done, and well, that is not good. There was no sperm found. We had always suspected something was wrong, especially since I have been pregnant before (not with DH though). We just never though there would be no sperm. More tests have been done, and there are no blockages, he has never produced sperm.
After crying, and praying, we have looked at other options with our RE. We can either adopt, but we have never felt in our hearts that that is the right choice for us. There is also the option of using donor sperm, which we have discussed before. We are not jumping to a decision right now, I have a mid-cycle ultrasound scheduled for monday, Jan 7th, just to make sure I am ovulating properly, and my lining is right to carry a pregnancy. Once we get the results of that, then we will make the decision on whether to use donor sperm, or remain child free.
This has been a lot to take in. I have been lurking on the Infertility board, and seems like that maybe where I start posting more, since there are more girls on there dealing with the same thing, that I can relate to more.
I will still be lurking on here to see everyone's BFP posts, and routing you all on.
Sorry, this was so long, if you read all the way to the end, thank you all, and all the well wishes! I wish you all the best in the upcoming new year!
So very sorry for you and your DH!!!
So sorry.....prayers for you and your DH
We're all here for you no matter what you decide. I hope the new year brings you some clarity. Please stop by and update us as your journey continues. We will miss seeing you!
