I am a male who has been suffering through infertility with his wife for the last 2 years.
After numerous tests and probings my wife's hormone levels were diagnosed as high TSH & Prolactin levels at the start of this year and despite getting treatment we have still failed to conceive which was one of the lowest points for us...having thought we had cracked it. My tests all came back ok, and I have even got them done again just to double check.
We have started to look into IVF and get one free round on the NHS but were just delivered another crushing blow when they found my wife also has low AMH levels (low egg reserve) she is only 31, after which the doctor said that our chances with IVF have now dropped from 50% to 30%....
Needless to say we are both on the floor...
I am quite depressed about it and I also don't feel too good about the IVF either as it seems very unatural to me - all the drugs they give her to stimulate the production of over 14 eggs in one go... Yet alone the fact that we now have an even more reduced chance of it working anyway. The relationship is under quite considerable strain as you can imagine.
I am trying to support her but I could also really do with some support too, especially would be good to hear from any men who have been in a similar position - if there are any out there?
