Hey folks I joined this forum to basically get info and support during our journey.
We haven't gone through any treatment just yet we are currently at the investigation stage and I found even that emotional and very overwhelming. So seriously you guys are amazing going through so much and such an inspiration.
I have found it very hard to talk to family and friends especially because all of them haven't been through this and don't really understand. There is also the constant questioning about what's happening and I really am sick of being told to stop trying and it will just happen. This seems to be the most popular treatment around lol. I have also seemed to have gained some really ugly personality traits that I never even thought I had such as jealousy and resentment. I feel this is so difficult to control my body language says it all really. On the other hand I go into avoidance mode I try to avoid people who have just announced they are expecting I think this is a coping mechanism I have adapted to avoid my emotions.
So our situation is I already have a 14 yo to a previous partner been with my hubby 10 years and started trying 2 years ago having had my implant removed and nothing has happened. My hubby has no children at all. Went to GP who after checking my history and me advising that my periods are as regular as clockwork they decided to check out hubby. He did 2 sperm checks neither of which could be checked for motility. We are unsure why. The first came back less than 10 mil the 2nd less than 2 mil. We have had our first consultation at the ARU hubby has done a lot of blood tests given them a 3rd sample actually done in the ARU and we are awaiting a scan appointment for him. Nothing has been started with me. We have our follow up appointment in November.
Already been told there will be no funding for treatment due to me already having a child even though hubby doesn't which is another thing we are trying to come to terms with.
I am honestly praying things will happen naturally but consultant never advised it would.
