Hello I'm new here, and I found these forums while searching for somewhere to vent my frustration, confusion and disappointment
My husband and I have been TTC for over 2 years now with no success. We tried several doctors, all of which basically turned as away and said to keep trying because we had 'time on our side'. Finally, we were taken seriously and referred to a fertility speciaist who ordered bloods, hormone analysis and semen analysis. I have PCOS (which I already knew) which causes somewhat irregular periods. But we just found out hubby has less then half the sperm he should and that they are slow swimmers. The specialists said our only option is IVF.
That can't be right. He didn't even suggest we try other methods first before throwing in excess of $8000 away on a treatment that may or may not work. I'm so confused and know there MUST be an answer out there, but I don't even know where to start looking
