My husband is having real difficulties coming to terms with the fact that we may need help to conceive. We have been TTC for 16 months, I have endometriosis, tubes are clear but it’s been found on bladder, appendix, uterus, 90% of right ovary and some small patches elsewhere. My husband has a very low sperm morphology (4%). After lots of tests we are now waiting to have our plan meeting next week at the fertility clinic but my husband is having panic attacks and has been very stressed and emotional. He doesn’t want to go through IVF and says he wants it to happen naturally but I’m scared that if we don’t have help we may never have a baby and will regret not taking the opportunity our whole lives. I’m now 34 and everyone around me seems to be having babies!
After my laparoscopy I asked the surgeon (also head of the Fertility Clinic) what the treatment would be for the endometriosis and he said “we need to get you pregnant as quickly as possible”. He explained that endo spreads at different rates but can spread quickly and may compromise my fertility. He was unable to lazar it as he said he could risk damage to my bladder or uterus (they are stuck together). Feel like time is ticking away on my fertility.
I need my husbands support with the decision we make. What do I do?
