So we had our initial consultation at the fertility clinic the other day for our first round of IVF, during which they did a semen analysis on my husband. Since he'd already had this done at the beginning of all the investigations we didn't expect anything out of the ordinary, but to our surprise it came back showing 100% anti-sperm antibodies! The consultant was very positive about it as he said this will qualify us for ICSI straight away, but I just feel a little dejected. After two and half years of trying and a whole host of investigations all I wanted was an answer, but now it seems to have confirmed what I feared all along - that we will never get pregnant on our own. It's just put a bit more pressure than I would like on the IVF treatment. I'm also really annoyed they didn't pick this up in the first place as maybe we could have given it a shot on our own with natural treatments. I've been through so many investigations and been so angry with myself and my body, meanwhile he won't even take the fertility supplements!
I've been doing a lot of research on the internet and the outlook isn't great for natural conception, but I did see something about treatment with zinc sulphate. Does anyone know of any success stories with this?
