Hi,

I'm another newbie looking to chat to people in a similar position.

We've been trying to conceive for 2 years now and after numerous blood tests and sperm samples we've been told that DH has a low sperm count due to an undescended testicle, treated as a child! It's actually been a relief to finally know what the problem is. We've now been put on a waiting list for IVF due to a combination of my age and his low sperm count. (My results so far have been fine, which is a blessing)

The journey so far has been a desperately lonely one as (like many) I find it very difficult to talk to family and friends, and DH finds it difficult to even talk to me about it. We're also surrounded by pregnant family and friends and the constant questionning about when it will be our turn, all leading to difficult times.

I'm hoping to meet people here that will help alleviate a real fear of IVF and share the road to the longed for BFP!  :)

Welcome to FF, Dragonfly!! This is a great website for support, information, laughter and friendship, it has kept me (relatively!) sane though all my treatments! I don't know what I would have done without it as I didn't know of anyone else who had gone through treatment - well, until I came on here, now I know thousands!! ;)

Oh, I totally sympathise regarding the constant questioning, I always used to have a few smart answers lined up for when people did ask, laugh it off - but inside it really upset me. Now we have been blessed with our daughter people are asking when we are going to have a little bro or sis for her. ^bigbad^
