Childless not by choice

New to the board

Good Morning All.  I just wanted to make a small post to say hello.  My story is short.  DH and I are both 34 and we started TTCing a little over 3 months ago.  In the past week we found out that DH is sterile so our short TTC journey has come to an end.  DH does not have insurance so we cannot look into any type of treatment for him and we both decided that donor sperm and adoption just wasn't for us.  So, I am trying my best to come to terms with what life has dealt us and I'm very thankful to see that this board exists.

  • It's definitely a bumpy road.

    We're still trying to hash out if we're going to get treatments or what the next step is, but I am trying to be comfortable with a child free life. I always said I wouldn't even do clomid and now we're faced with IVF in a very regulated country (no frozen, no sorting, all fertilized must be implanted and the max is 3).

    Some days it's not an issue at all and the days it is I remind myself of people having more complex issues, like lacking fresh water or a home. It puts things into perspective and helps me to see how privileged I really am.
