Hi there all , just wondering if there are any informal meet ups in the Manchester area, cafes, bars , libraries, anywhere!?
Myself and my wife have been through 1 Micro-tese and it was unsuccessful, so our fertility journey is now complete, as of January 20th this year. It was 2 years of hell, and initially after the treatment finished we felt relief (despite wifey being hospitalised with OHSS!) -but now I really would benefit from speaking to people in the same position we now find ourselves in. Talking to a counsellor is not the same as speaking to people who have actually been through it! even just to laugh at the ridiculous unfairness of it all! I personally feel extremely isolated at suffering with Azoospermia , and would , i think benefit from speaking to even just one other man/couple who knows what this is like!
This would seriously help me more than seeing 100 counsellors!, as it is becoming harder and harder to deal with my shame /guilt/embarassment on my own. I know other guys may have these feelings about Azoospermia too , but I certainly don't know anyone in my circle of friends or family who has gone through it.
Thanks so much for listening, best of luck to all!
