Well yesterday I found out that after 8 months on medication to raise my testosterone level and my sperm count didn’t do a good enough job. I mean my testosterone level increased from 200 to over 940 and my sperm quantity increased from 200,000 to 700,000, but not enough to do IUI. So now we have to figure out how to afford IVF. The worst part about all this though is my Dad, who is super Catholic, is against IVF and started talking about how it would put a wedge between us. Don’t get me wrong, I am not letting that discourage me from getting it, but it would be nice to have support from my own father during what is easily the most difficult time in my life.
My wife and I are meeting with the reproductive specialist at Delaware Reproductive Associates sometime this week or next week to discuss IVF…Praying that it works the first time…
Me: 23/M --Low Sperm Count, Bad Morphology, Bad motility
