My husband is a very lucky man after surviving what turned out to be complex transplant surgery. He is now on MMF and feels well and we would like to start a family. We are at the last stages of our fertility treatment screening and have now been told that the guidance with MMF has changed and this could be problematic for our potential treatment due to potential risks to baby. There is no evidence relating to the risks In males yet it is widely reported writhin females. Has anyone else come across this and if so what was the outcome? Changing my husbands drugs is something we are not happy to do as he is stable and it's been a long road - just seem so hard for us to be told no because of a potential risk that cannot be quantified as there is no evidence and no known association of deformalities in a child when the male is taking the drug. So stressed as it's taken us 8months to get to this point. Would this be the same if we went private? Or is his an NHS thing? Any advise would be appreciated
