New here and just thought I'd make a first post and give a brief run down of our journey.
My partner is a T-6 Paraplegic and as such has no sperm. I knew this from very early on when we got together so it was never an issue.
We had our first IVF app about 6 weeks ago, the dr ran through our options and sent us on our way for me to have a lot of tests. Mainly full bloods, AMH and a Hycosy. We also had to have our first counselling app which if you ask me it was a waste of time.
All the results came back great except my AMH, it's really low. The IVF dr said due to my age (27) she's not worried. I still walked out of that appointment very disheartened but she still thinks we can go ahead with our original plan to try IUI first.
Where my partner and I are now in the IVF journey is in limbo, on the donor waitlist. The current waitlist is 6months. We are told to book our last counselling app late September and hopefully by then we will get access to the donor list. It seems like such a long way away but once we reach the top of that list and I get my period it will be all systems go!
Any tips on what I or we should do during this wait period?
If you're still reading, thank you :). I wish you all the best of luck on your own individual journeys to conceive.
