I'm 41 years old now, just finished our 5th IVF and have no clear answer as to why it hasn't worked yet. I'm trying to figure out what the next step should be... Welcome to my nightmare and thanks for reading.
PS~ English is my second language so please forgive my errors :)
Dan had his appointment at the clinic at 8:00am this morning to drop off a sample. We set the alarm for 6:30am and I got to stay in bed for a couple more hours while he rushed to the fertility clinic. Loved it! A total first for us!
I imagine this shouldn't be a stressful cycle since I'm totally out of the picture here. No shots, no ultrasound appointments, no getting fat and all hormonal, it should be easy breezy... however, I already had two tall glasses of wine last night (totally not me) and had a hard time sleeping. Wish I didn't take things so seriously... Hopefully once these contract papers get signed and the money is out of the bank, when I feel there is nothing else I can do about it, maybe I'll relax. I wish I could be more laid back..
UPDATE: Just got the call about the analysis. The doctor himself called me and said they could only find 6 sperm in the whole sample! And they weren't even moving! What???? It has NEVER been that bad. The doctor asked if Dan was taking testosterone, no way he is! He said he has never seen such a bad sample, we are in shock!
Dan has been complaining about a little hard area down there and when he went to his urologist (famous doctor in BH), he said that it could be scar tissue from the TESE he had years back, so we were not worried. Now Dan is wondering if it's something more serious. Thank God he insisted on testing a sample before moving forward....
On a very positive note, I immediately called CC.RM, we had sent the notarized document to dispose of Dan's sample that we had there frozen. We sent the cancellation form about 2 weeks ago, we didn't want to pay $300 for storage. Well, the good news is they still have it! The girl at the lab had to physically go and check because the paperwork was already in the disposing pile. She said most likely by tomorrow morning it would have been gone. Regardless of the terrible news, I feel so so lucky!
