have had a very interesting read - thank u!
Just thought i'd share my story. DH was diagnosed with hodgkins 3 years ago. Married for 1 year we were advised to get some sperm frozen before he began chemo the following week. We had just been discussing beginning our family and i was crushed to learn we would never fall preg naturally. While DH was having chemo i began IVF and fell pregnant on my second ICSI. I now have a gorgeous 20 month DS and DH's health is great (remission 2 years).
We are back on the IVF train to conceive #2 and I have my final BT tomorrow after a FET using an embryo from the same cycle as my son.
DH can't change what he eats, drinks, does etc as we only have what we froze 3 years ago. It can actually be frustrating at times as my husband literally doesn't have to and can't do anything for our IVF journey. It is all me tho fertilty wise i'm all good!
Just thought i'd share as a bit of a different situation again.
and re the laws discussion - i can definately see the pros and cons but it would be a shame if it stopped as many guys donating and resulting in even more waiting time/restricted choice for infertile couples.
