My partner and I have been trying for a long time to get pregnant, after appointments at the doctors they gave me a day 21 which they said was fine. And my partner gave his sample, when the results came back the doctor said it was a bit low but fine (he did ask if he had had a vasectomy?????) and shrugged us off. After months of asking we finally saw another doctor at the surgery and she refured us,saying we probably wouldn't get help on the NHS plus long waiting times.Which added to our panic as I'm 38 and I kept seeing the cut off point at 39.
Anyway our appointment came through within weeks, and after a sleepless night we went for our first appointment. After sitting down with the doctor he looked over my partners results- either our doctor didn't know what he was reading or he just didn't like being honest.. Either way I'm not quite sure as it turns out my partner doesn't have a low sperm count he has no sperm count..? How could the GP shrug that off and tell us to keep trying?? Anyway the hospital have said we can get ivf on the NHS and my partner has to do another semen test in the hope they find some so they can freeze it.
I also have to loose weight 2 stone, after having my scan apparently I also have huge cysts on my ovaries and tubes- again I had been asking my doctor for years for check for cysts as I've had them since I was 14.
Basically we go back in 4months enough time in which they think I can loose the 2 stone and I guess to get my day 3? Bloods and my partners bloods done.
In the whole whirlwind of finding out my partner has a no sperm count and saying that we can get help then finding out I've got cysts the size of a grapefruit I didn't think to ask what next!!! I was just so happy to know that finally after many years someone was willing to help. Has anyone been in a similar position ? If so did you have ivf with icsi?
Any info would be helpful.
