Hi, my name is Amy. I'm very new to all of this. I'm 22 and my husband is 33. He had a vasectomy about 6 years ago and we had a reversal done about a year and a half ago. We just started seeing our dr in november 2010. After the test, the nurse called me the day before thanksgiving and told me my husband had a zero sperm count. So ivf is our best option. I start my birthcontrol today and I'm not clear on the rest. We will be having our ER in march. Our insurance does not cover it so I'm praying one cycle will work! We also live far from family so I need lots of support! Is anyone else in march??

Hi Amy,

I'm in a similar situation. Insurance is no help so we are praying the 1st time is the charm. If all goes according to plan, we should be doing ER in March also. Good luck to you!! You're blessed that

Thanks so much girls! I have an ultra sound scheduled on Thursday to check my uterus. Hopefully everything looks good. I'm not sure of when my actually ER date is..sometime in march. I'm just nervous about all the shots. I actually let my boss know about my plan and it suprisingly went well. Im so happy she is ok with me possiblely needing off. She even said she'd say aprayer for me.. which in not like her. We even joked about me being crazy emotional with our patients hahha! Is it march yet?? I'm ready for my twins,

Hi Amy! Welcome! It is so great that you could tell your boss. that is one stressful part of this that I haven't been able to figure out yet. No one knows anything.

I also don't have insurance coverage for it but I think most of us do not. Good luck! -Pix
