Hello ;D,

My Name is sarah and i have just started my injections for ICSI. Not really sure what to expect so thought i would try to find people going through a similar process.

We found out a year ago my partner has a REALLY low sperm count and our only option is this (nice to have an option though) Friends and family have been really good, but they never know what to say or do and some people always feel really uncomftable talking about it!

Trying to stay happy and not too scared after reading all the side effects :-\

Would love to here from others in the same boat :)

Love Sarah x

Hi Sarah (great name by the way  ;) )
Welcome to FF. My DH has a very low count and very bad motility too. We've just finished our second attempt at ICSI and got a BFP!!!
How's the injections going? Are you taking Buserelin? Hope they don't hurt too much. The side effects do get better once you start your stimulation drugs so you won't feel crappy for long hun  ^hugme^
Miracles can and do happen so try to stay positive (I know.....easier said than done!)
Good luck. Sending you lot's of sticky vibes.
Sarah xx

Hi Sarah

Am just about to 1st appointment (on Thursday) to sort our IVF and ICSi for the same reasons as you.  You're so right .. where there is a will there is a way.  ^hugme^ ^hugme^

Hope you're feeling OK, it would be great to share with you some of what you are going through as some of the terms are completely new to me!!

Best wishes
