My partner and I have been ttc naturally for 4 years, however dp has significantly low sperm count, after initial investigation, we have been advised by our fertility specialist that ivf icsi is our best option, however, my bmi was too high for a immediate referral (needs to be 30 or less).That was back in early Aug, so here i am 2 weeks away from next appointment (17th Dec) and 2 stone lighter, bmi currently 30.3, he will be happy to refer us when i get to 30 so just trying to shift last few pounds! I have been reading all the entries and have been so impressed with this site, glad i found it!. x

to FF!

Well done you on the weight loss!, you've done so well ^hugme^
Please have a good look around the site and feel free to post in any area, and make yourself at home. There are many who are on their TTC journey, and others who have been fortunate to have little ones with assistance. You will soon discover that our members are very encouraging of one another and offering advice or just simple hugs. There's a vast amount of information here for everyone, so start reading, posting and getting to know others. You will make some great friends too, lots of members often have meet ups locally too, for chats, coffee, shopping or even nights out! You can share conversations with one another freely, simply because we all understand each other. It's hard when family and friends don't fully comprehend what this journey entails and the emotions that go with it. That's where we come in!

A Rough Guide To IVF ~CLICK HERE

(This is a breakdown of the procedure of IVF which is the same as ICSI up until the point of fertilization, With ICSI the embryologist injects one good sperm into one good egg, and repeats until all are used. So it gives them a helping hand, with IVF the eggs and sperm are left to fertilize by themselves)
