4 Years TTC with No Sperm Count

Postby Mahkohime » Tue May 16, 2017 11:17 am

Yes, this is a PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT. Thank GOD for this Blessing! Our Little Bean is 8 weeks 4 days along and I am due December 22nd, 2017!

I am 32, Husband is 33. I was totally fertile and poor husband had Zero sperm count due to medication as we found out later for sure (Depakote for Bipolar 1).

Before we even started trying to conceive, when we got married in 2009 we found that we could not consummate the marriage due to what we found out was Vaginismus. I worked and researched on my condition and helped it out enough that in 2012, we were finally able to consummate our love. Husband and I started trying to conceive in March of 2013 and had absolutely zero luck. I charted and temped and put myself and him on different foods and vitamins to help, but nothing worked. Last year we found out that nothing was wrong on my end, but Husband was tested and had ZERO sperm count. We were devastated but still hoped that maybe that could change. The doctor said that it could have been the medication he was on and was right.

This year Husband has been struggling mentally and had his meds changed because the ones he was on were destroying his life (the zero sperm count was not a factor in this change). Miraculously, we conceived without thinking about it and although Nathan is still trying to adjust meds and feel better, we are so happy that God saw fit to Bless us this way. Thank you to all who have supported us on this journey and I pray for those who are still still struggling with infertility or those who have lost children.

Oh and I do use the Ibasal Thermometer and that clued me in that I may be pregnant. I was 5 days late and my temps were still high. I will have to put that info up when I can.

Hey Makhohime, hope you are doing well. I am so happy for you. It is a miracle and you are so blessed. I hope your journey goes well. As an infertile I can understand how happy you must be on this amazing news. I have been trying hard to conceive but my endometriosis didnt allowed me to. Even trying IVF twice didnt helped. My husband divorced me and I had to live alone for a year. After remarrying I am so so so desperate to have a baby. I found about Biotexcom clinic event . I heard that Anastasia who is head of their english department will visit to share details of fertility treatments and they will also give a chance to sign treatment agreements. That elevated my interest level and I started waiting for the event. My patience level didnt allowed me to wait and I email them my entire journey. Thankfully they responded well and I visited their clinic too. I am now finalizing my SM to start my surrogacy treatment.

Wow!!! success experience, love to read it. Indeed hard work pays off! Well, you deserved such wonderful success. Aspirants can take great inspiration from you. Coming toward your success story, dear, you've gone through so many troubles. Infertility is one of the biggest worldwide issues. In fact, every sixth couple is facing this problem. Most of the times, society blames ladies for infertility. Even life is hard for a lady and society makes it harder. In spite of it, infertility is getting common in men too. It's getting alarming now, my love. Infertility in men can be due to genetic reasons or may be due to some accident. Those who are facing similar problems may contact some organized clinic. Because local sperm donors are not trustworthy. That's why European clinics are best in this regard!

Wow, this is an amazing thread. Congratulations sweetheart on such an amazing news. Yes, we should always be hopeful. There is always a bright day after some dark night. All you need is face hard time with open and brave heart. Your thread is not just your story, it is a piece of hope and inspiration. I had gone through such times too. When I was declared infertile, it was like an end for me. Those days were hard days of my life. My in-laws used to taunt me. They blamed me for that natural issue. The worst part was my husband left me all alone. But I didn't give up. After a year of that worst life, I married again. This time I found a real man, who supported me on my hard days. He told me about surrogacy and he always searched about the clinic too. We went to Europe on a honeymoon. Here I found a quality clinic. We went for surrogacy and it works absolutely great in my favor. Now I am a happy mother of two beautiful kids. God is great
