I know that a lot of you have been through this so I hoping someone may be able to give me some advice?
A brief summary:
Me 28 DH 32 both healthy, fit and well. Have been TTC for 17 months now.
After numerous test we found DH to have very poor sperm - just below average in count and motility but only 1% normal morphology. This was very hard to accept - especially for my DH. He feels as if he has failed. Seeing him cry and apologise to me was simply terrible.
I wish that the problem had of been with me as I think we are built to deal with these things better.
We had an appointment with IVF Australia last week and they advised that the best way forward would be ICSI. I know this FS is supposed to be the best but I couldn't help but feel like we were talking to an IVF Salesman. He told us diet, menevit, lifestyle wouldn't change a thing - IVF is the only option. And maybe it is - I just don't know??
He then told me that the chances of becoming PG through IVF were 40%. I know nothing is 100% but I honestly thought it would be higher than that! I apologise for my lack of knowledge - I really never expected this, I am sure no one does, but it just sux
I would love to hear from anyone that has been in this position or even gone ahead with ICSI as I just don't know what I am in for.
My FS also suggested I start as soon as I am ready - even as soon as my next period! The thought of the whole thing is just freaking me out!
Can you ever be "ready" for IVF?
