Hello I've been lurking on here a while and thought I'd share I'm 37 And partner 39 been trying for 2 and a half years. Started processes last October to see what was wrong. Had a laparoscopy and dye couple of weeks ago they found my left tube had a kink in it but he straightened it out and it's now fine. My tubes were not blocked. After this we were hopeful thinking if that was the problem we might be ok now but had big appointment to get all results from blood tests and sperm etc and partners sperm has come back 2 million. Was such a blow I burst into tears and he nearly passed out and had to lay down! She said we will do another sample (the first one was done at Christmas) so waiting for the date to deposit it! They are also doing blood work on him to check genetic things.... She said see what this come back as and if it is still low then we need IVF. She said also I'm not ovulating every month so with that, my tube twisted and his sperm we had lest than 1 % of conceiving naturally. Of course we are hoping his sperm count was a freak sample, I'm a bit annoyed we only just found out the result of that, I Naively thought if it was bad news they would have called and asked to book another one. But we will start trying to boost up on walnuts bananas and vitamins but the test will be in a month or so and I didn't think sperm generates until 3 months so what he improves with eating now won't help this sample. I hope I'm making sense I'm sorry im waffling!
Anyway just letting it all sink in to top it off the morning we found out my best friend went into labour and by the next morning her beautiful baby boy was born. I hate being so bloody emotional! I'm really pleased for her but it hurts so much xx
