Getting Pregnant <
Long term TTC & infertility
03/11/2013 at 17:56
A lot of you will know my story, but here it is again - got preg in Feb after ttc for 2 months and I think that we were incredibly lucky to get pregnant. Miscarried in April and have been ttc since. I had a full check up and scan and been told that I ovulated and that my body worked properly. DH did a couple of home sperm count tests and they were both negative Poor man is very disappointed! He is going to call our GP tomorrow and get a proper test done and also go to a private clinic to get a full sperm MOT done.
I was wondering if any of your dh's had these tests done and what medication / advice they were given in respect of a low sperm count. If the docs tests prove that his sperm count is very low, do we have to go for IVF or are there any other avenues to explore?
I feel really sad for him , I know that he is very sad and disappointed and I cannot make it any better. I also worry that he will think that I am blaming the whole thing on him - I would never do that and I told him that lots of times, however he thinks that I will end up resenting him if our ttc journey doesn't prove to be successful.
I would appreciate any advice
Thank you ladies!
