    I don't think he's being a hypocrite either.

    I realise you posted the links out of genuine concern & I appreciate it. I've learned to take anything published by a media source with a grain of salt & I stick to scientific journals.

    For every study showing there are concerns, there will be a counterpart drawing the opposite conclusions. Human development is far too complex and has far too many variables for any study to be considered 100% reliable or representative. Its simply not possible to prove that the health issues would not arise if the same child was naturally conceived.

    Um I'm not 100% sure Tbh. I mostly feel the same but wouldn't rule out changing my mind iykwim. I'm prob 90% sure I don't want to do ivf. If I really wanted to dh says he would do it, but Yeh I don't really think so. Not at thus stage at least. I to kinda think genetics/darwin stops reproduction for a reason. My dh was concieved with donor sperm as his dad sperm was no good.

    Exactly! I spoke to my if dr who was one or if not the first dr to produce if babies over 30yrs ago, his opinion is that there is no reason an Ivf child will have issues conceiving unless there is a genetic link. Which in mine and dh's situation there isn't a genetic link, and as for ivf children having to monitor their health pft what rubbish in my opinion, they would be no more at risk than children conceived naturally.

    But getting back on track, I guess it's you and your dh's decision whether you pursue ivf or not and you obviously need to respect each others decisions. I am surprised that a person conceived through ivf themselves decides not to pursue this avenue for himself but it's his choice.

    We are grateful for ivf, we are lucky to have had the help and we thank god everyday for our beautiful boys, they have made our lives complete.

    This. Exactly this.
