Hi my name is Emma I have a gorgeous God Son who calls me memma which keeps me smiling - seeing a consultant for ICSI on 25th, I am terrified, Can anybdy offer any info or advise - my head is spining as I have no idea what to expect x
Thanks, I am smiling, i'm 32 and hubby 39 he had a vasectomy 10 years ago when he was in a previous marriage, he had it reversed over 2 years ago and worked hip hip hooray but recently had tests and due to scar tissue has reverted back again. so our only chance is ICSI / IVF and because he had a vasectomy we dont qualify for NHS.
So I have been very low,
I hope you get some positive news from your tests - will be thinking of you - best of luck x
A month ago I ws terrified too and started treatment on 1st July for IVF/ICSI. It isn't as bad as you think or so far anyway. It is the unknown that is scary. We are due to start the 2nd phase of drugs on 19th july.
Good luck for the 25th and keep positive
Hi Memma, We were going to go down the ICSI route. Unfortunatley on the 29th of June we were told there was no after DP underwent investigations for sperm anaylsis. We are going to use a donor and have an appt in August.
We had ICSI and it is pretty daunting when you start. I think the only way to tackle it is in the same way as the answer to "how do you eat an elephant" which is "one bite at a time". Trying to do anything else is rather confusing. Its not a great process but its not as bad as you think.
I'm sure you'll find lots of help and support from this community.
