A few months ago, My partner & myself ( both 24 ) after 3 years of trying found out my partner has Klienfelters syndrome, this is a result of being born with a extra chromosome ( XXY ) His only ‘symptom’ is the infertility side.
We have seen a few doctors and finally been referred to the doctor who works through the Infertility clinic.
We have been given our two options - Donor sperm or Testicular biopsy followed by IVF/ICIS
This would require us having to travel 6 hours away from him to have his Testicular biopsy ( which we have been told has a 70% chance of successfully getting a good result )
then continue with the ICIS/IVF ( with a 40% chance of falling pregnant successful)
The only problem with going this way is the baby would have a very HIGH chance of having an extra chromosome, resulting in being born with Klienfelters of something else. And will most likely be infertile.
My partner is determined to try this way but Im having doubts that its very selfish of us to knowingly bring a baby into this world knowing that it may have ‘problems’
Looking for people who have been through this and what results did their pregnancy result in. Any info AT ALL would be much appreciated!!
