Infertility Talk ....

*first post*

 

Welcome to our ttc journey ....

We had been trying to conceive for close to a year, due to hubbys medical past ((testicular cancer when 17)) we decided to get a SA done ... results were below normal on everything .. more importantly his motility was <10% :(  his Dr. recommended we have an initial fertility consultation with my OBGY ...

June 10th - after a referral by my OB, our first visit with our RE Dr. Karande.  Arrived. Super nervous not knowing what to expect ... settled down when i realized how nice everyone was. After waiting for 45 minutes they finally take us back. First get an u/s to check my ovaries, everything checked out ok! Hubby a lil uncomfortable since he was in there seeing a lil too much of my goodies i guess hahaha. Finally go back and talk to Dr. Karande and he explains how he is very concerned about the motility factor in the DH SA - originally we thought we were going to go and talk our possibilities of IUI since that was what my OB had recommended. So when the Dr. starts talking about pills, injections, egg retreival and transfer i was a lil taken back because i was totally not expecting that. After he goes through the whole process of trying to conceive via IVF "any questions?" ummm... heck yea!! I hadn't researched enough about IVF since my time was consumed following blogs about IUI.

Now our next step....wait for AF to arrive .... i've never wanted her to get here as bad as i do now! && hubby going in for some deposits ... in case the day of there aren't any good to choose from.

 

Until next time ...
