Hello everyone,

                    After reading many posts i have decided to take the bull between the horns and post myself.After recent tests it has shown that my husband has no sperm present in his specimen.This was due to a failed vasectomy reversal.I was told as my husband had had a vasectomy reversal and has two children that i am not able to have treatment on the nhs.

I found this very unfair.Having thought about this ,although i don't have the baby i so desperately want i am still able to help others,so i have decided to donate eggs.We have our first blood tests Wednesday and have to wait until may for our next appointment.We will then have icsi treatment.

At present i am trying to get as fit and healthy as possible,i don't drink any alcohol or have any caffeine.I have a well balanced diet and plenty of exercise.If anyone can offer any advice on egg sharing,icsi and generally getting your body prepared i would love to hear any suggestions or advice.
Many thanks in advance. x

Hello Littlem1nx and welcome to FF ^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)


While undergoing treatment, you might find it useful to join other ladies having treatment at the same time. The Cycle Buddies threads are just for that. Just pop along to the appropriate month and say "Hi" when you are ready to start treatment.
