Successful sperm retrieval!!!

Well after spending the last week in a state of mental melt down my better half has had a successful sperm retrieval today. We've been told that hopefully there's enough sperm for 4 rounds of ICSI - IVF! Omg I cant quite believe it! I have got my appointment for the treatment plan next Thursday. IVF here we come.... I say with my head in a determined mood!!!

I know we've still got a long way to go but we are now on the right road.

I hope all you lovely ladies have had positive and lucky days xx

I'm ok. We have been booked in for sperm retrieval on the 24th July but it's only provisional.

First we need to see the genetic counsellor on 24th June. They've told us the decision to progress will be ours alone and they can only advise us on what our risks will be.

It's a big decision but we'll have to choose whether we want to take the chance of passing on this condition 😔

Anyway, need to stay positive and great news like yours really helps 😊

I'm wishing you so much luck! I hope you feel more informed about the decision following your counselling. It must be tough though.

Thinking of you and sending lots of positive vibes! Xxx
