I have been lurking for a little bit now, and decided it was time to introduce myself.
I'm Ashley, I am 30. I am married to the most wonderful guy, for almost two years now. We started TTC before we got married, and always got BFNs. We assumed it was me, because I go through phases where I don't have a period for months.
One day my husband visited his doctor because he was tired ALL the time. His testosterone level was very low. He was sent to an endocrinologist who performed a SA, since he had mentioned we were trying. It came back 0. So he got referred to a urologist who is local but supposed to be one of the best in the country. He had hoped we could go in and remove swimmers, but generic testing showed a microdeletion and he does not produce anything. He was heartbroken, he has always wanted to be a dad.
While this was all happening, I was taking clomid and progesterone, which seemed to be helping. After the diagnosis, I just gave up. The endocrinologist had told him our only options were adoption or being childless. We aren't okay with that. We took a year to regroup. We decided we still wanted the experience of pregnancy ourselves.
I went in and had my annual and they pulled a lot of blood, and helped us get an appointment with an RE. All my bloodworm came back good except my Vitamin D. So now I am supplementing. She said everything else looked good.
We don't have our first RE appointment until July 29 We have our list narrowed down to an ideal donor with a couple backups, but I love the one we found. He reminds me so much of my husband.
Also, sorry about spelling or grammar issues. I am on my tablet coming home from the in laws. Our families don't know what is going on which makes t harder to not feel alone.
