Are you considered "normal" and your only issue is MFI? How does it make you feel?
Makes me feel helpless and controlled at times. Its like, i dont have any other options to have my own kids... IVF IS the option and it stinks sometimes! I hate being....forced into things.. i like options and with MFI there are usually 2 options.. IUI or IVF.
I am normal and ovulate regularly. It makes me feel limited because I know for the past 2 years we have done EVERYTHING in the book and nothing.
I'm being optimistic for this friday's appointment. I cannot wait!
I'm not sure if I'm "normal" or not yet, but knowing that we are dealing with MFI does make me really sad sometimes. I hate how stressful it is trying to predict my ovulation perfectly so that we can get our donor sperm shipped, crossing my fingers I don't O on a Sunday because it can't get delivered then, etc.
It's also brought up a lot of sadness and anger for me because it's forced us to confront my hubby's disease (Cystic Fibrosis, which has an average survival age of 37) over and over again. Even though I know he's doing well and will probably live much longer than 37, it feels like there is a clock ticking all the time and that we don't have forever to be parents together. It just makes it all the harder to deal with the fact that it may take more time because of the MFI and makes me wish we could both just be "normal" so much.
