DP (26) and myself (23) are setting off on our IVF journey this year.
DP and I have been TTC since May 2014. I had a history of blocked tubes so my fs Dr Dalton (Ballarat IVF) advised if still not pregnant within 6 months come back. With that said DP and I started having some tests done with our gp while waiting for our appointment with Dr Dalton to come.
I had blood tests and and ultrasound with no reasons found. DP had semen analysis done and rang doctors for results, the nurse advised him that the doctor was happy and no further action required.
DP and I were both relieved for the fact everything was fine but worried for the fact it just wasn't working.
3 weeks later I had a call from my partner who was home early from work (very unusual, he is a workaholic). I came home and nothing seemed out of place in fact he looked relax and handed me a drink. He proceeded to burst into tears with the news his sperm analysis came back with zero sperm. 4 weeks since the blood test and his doctor only calls him in now!!!!! I was furious with his go but heart bled for DP as I had felt what it was like to be told you were infertile. In fact this terrible event has brought us closer.
Since then we have returned to Dr Dalton who performed a physical examination on DP and advised us his testes were smaller than usual which indicated klinefelters syndrome. Dr Dalton ordered blood tests for Greg to check for chromosome patterns. He also advised us that IVF would be the path for us and to be open minded about a sperm donor if the result was not to go our way.
Just wanted to see who else is out there who has had this experience or about to undertake this journey. I'm very vague about the donor processes. There is nothing like a little support group on this roller coaster.
PS sorry for my rambling.
2015 our year for a beautiful blessing
