Here is my story...

Hi girls,

It has been long time I have not posted here anything...its just because I have been hoping month to month to get success.
And I have been thinking all the year almost that its because of me...I went to visit my doctor and at the same time..my doctor sent my bf also to doctor...my bf`s sperm was tested.. in conclusion-- the doctor said that its because my bf...his sperm was nooot good ...they didn't find any active sperms in his sperm.. or how should I say it.. and she said that its impossible for us to get a pregnant in natural way... omg... wasted 1 year ...
now my bf is going to a doctor where they should find out what is the reason why he is not able to make me pregnant.. but I have been thinking.. my bf is 23..and he is sporty guy..he doesn't smoke .. he doesn't drink alcohol at all---why us?! Oeh...
Also girls perhaps you know some vitamins what can help us to raise sperms in his sperm?
There must be some solutions for that...so our opportunities are IVF, ICSI..

I am really sceptical with IVF and so on :S
is here anybody who have had the same situation ?? Please give some advise .....thank you

I'm sorry you got such bad news! Every situation is different, so maybe they'll find a reason why your DF doesn't have any sperm. It might be that he has sperm in his testicles, but they get blocked along the tubes so they don't actually come out in his ejaculate... in which case, IVF would still be an option. Also, does he have NO sperm, or just very few sperm? That could make a big difference as well. Depending on how bad it is, IUI or IVF could be options. There could be hormonal problems, too, that could cause it. Hopefully your DF will see a good specialist who will test him for everything and then you'll have more information to see if the problem is something that is fixable or not.

For us, we found out that my DH made very few sperm--and they were all of very poor quality--when we were only 25 years old. He had all the testing done, and we could never figure out a reason why. And he, too, was healthy, a nonsmoker, etc. We tried IVF twice--the first time got a bfn, the second time we got pg but it was a chemical pg (AF came 3 days after my bfp). DH started to have second thoughts about using his sperm... he felt like maybe there was something genetically wrong with him and if something ended up being wrong with the baby, he'd never forgive himself because he'd feel like it was his fault. So we ended up deciding to do IUI using donor sperm. We now have a 5 year old son, a 2 year old daughter, and we're now 17 wks pg with #3. We have no regrets about our decision, but everyone has a very different opinion about using a donor and I wouldn't say it's right for everyone.

So I think first, hang in there and try to get more answers about how bad your DF's sperm really are, if there are any, and get all the hormonal/antibody/varicocele testing done to see if you can figure out what the problem is. Then you'll have more information about how to move forward.

Dear Daissee37

I am more than grateful for your comments here...that was supportive..thank you for describing your situation...

My bf sperm was also a low quality and doctors didn't find any active sperms what could make me pg. amount of sperm was also to low...its emotionaly so bad situation...oeh..very hard...

But today actually my bf is going to a doctor he is starting to faigure out what could be the reason, if there is some reason?...

Also I am very sceptical about IVF.. long process and .. oeh I don't know.. but if we need to choose between IVF or IUI.. I would choose IVF...

(Actually I am not very informed either about IUI, but (about the donors sperm) your children has the donors genetics and yours? not of yours bf`s - ? Am I right?...

May I ask have you used the same donors sperm for your children?

I can imagine how hard decision it is for the man... but I understand ofcourse also that finally both sides are happy...

Big congrats with your pregnancy---... I am happy to hear that you can enjoy to give a birth again and I belive these 9 months are amazing...

Big hugs and take care of yourself.
