I don't post much on here, but I just have to share my excitement with somebody!!
My DH and I have been TTC for over 3 years and have been unable to as a result of male factor infertility after a vasectomy reversal. The first year and a half after the reversal was spent waiting to see if things would run their course, with SAs done every few months and seeing no improvement. We finally decided to see a specialist, who found that my DH had low testosterone and tried using Clomid to naturally elevate his T levels for the next year and a half....again, testing every few months and seeing no improvement.
We finally decided a few months ago to continue with our journey using a donor since we would not be able to afford IVF. After a few bumps in the road, I am finally scheduled to have my first donor cycle this month!! I am so excited. I feel like my energy is renewed after years of hopelessness. I feel like this is our chance to finally start our family together and couldn't be happier!
However, DH and I decided we wouldn't be telling anybody we are using a donor. I think he still struggles with the idea that he has lost his "manliness" by not being able to genetically provide me with a child. So, since I can't share my news with friends and family here I am!! (Also a bit nervous that this won't work and I'll fall back into the hopelessness. Trying hard not to let myself go there)
Hopefully this month flies by and will end with the BFP I have been waiting for for what seems like forever.
Thanks for listening!!
