Trouble TTC

New here! I think I've found the right discussion group..

edited May 2016 in Trouble TTC
Hey everybody! My husband and I have been TTC for about 2 years now. About a year ago we found out that he is azoospermic..after letting that sink in and looking at our options, we decided on IUI with DS. In February we did our first IUI, unmedicated, and it didn't work. I'm a teacher.. So we decided to wait until my summer break to do another. Finally the time is here! I will go in for my day 3 ultrasound this week and we will go from there. I am looking forward to be able to chat with you ladies through this process!

    Welcome!!! I would love to chat as my husband too is azoospermic. We also have been on this journey for about a year - I met with my gyno in March 2015, DH went for semen analysis in April, and we met with fertility dr in May and have been figuring out options etc this past year. I had my day 3 blood work and ULtrasound on May 24 and will hopefully be beginning hormones for ivf next week. Dr didn't really give us IUI as an option, we will be using ivf with ICSI. Do they know the cause of your husband's condition? My husband unfortunately was born XXY chromosome.. It has been difficult to cope with and so hard when hubby feels like it is his fault we cannot conceive. They will be doing a testicular biopsy to see if there is anything they can take from the testicle (urologist said about a 50% chance) but we have a donor as our plan B. Please feel free to message me I would love to know how you make out! 
  • Welcome and good luck.  I hope it goes well for you
