DH and I have been TTC for about 8 months. Because I have DD from previous relationship, my doctor mentioned it would be a good idea to have him tested. Since AF was making me more depressed as months went by, DH agreed to get tested. The least he could do after having CD3 and CD24 testing along with ultrasounds for myself right? Lol.
News came back not so good. His specimen was "empty." After a discussion with the doctor, we realized IVF isn't an option because he doesn't produce sperm, but if we can find a donor, IUI could be a possibility. My doctor couldn't answer many questions and refered us to a specialist on post. My husband will go to the consultation next week if he can get out of work (he is a drill sgt).
Question is, does prices for IUI include a donor specimen? Is any of the costs included in our lovely Tricare Prime insurance?
I am really trying to make a decision and move forward with a "no, let's just be the best parents we can to the one we have or yes, let's move forward and give it a shot."
I am incredibly heart broken for my husband because if it wasn't for his excitement and strong desire I would have never began thinking of the possibility of having another. My daughter is almost 7.
