Well, as much as we were hoping to avoid it DH & I have started IVF due to DH's low sperm count and the DNA oxidisaton damage that his sperm has.
We are going through Fertility First in Hurstville and so far we are loving them.
I am excited but sad at the same time. Excited for the thought that very soon we could be expecting and sad that we haven't been able to conceive naturally.
So far everything is going well. I started taking the cross over pill on the 15th December and started taking Synarel (instead of Lucrin) on the 28th December and my last day for the pill was the 4th.
My period happily (I don't think I've ever been so happy to have my period arrive) came on Saturday afternoon which means, hopefully, we will be starting the FSH Injections on Wednesday.
Which will see egg extraction and transfer for the end of the month.. YAY
I get excited at the thought that mid Feb we could be pregnant but realistic that it doesn't always work..
Happily when I had a scan at the end of last year I had 20 follicles on one ovary and 16 on the other with no cysts in sight.. So, fertility wise for me, everything is good.. It's just DH's spermies that are causing the problems..
Well, I just wanted to share my story, and hear from other ladies about their success of IVF on the first (or subsequent transfers)...
Hugs & Baby Dust to you all
