Mens Infertility - Help and support
I thought it was about time I introduced myself.IMy name is Helen and I am married and am 28.I have been married for 7 years and we have been trying to concieve for most of that.After initial tests we found out that my hubby has low or zero sperm count so we are on the list for IVF. I became an auntie and the worries about how things were going to be with my brother in law and his gf disappeared. Having the baby seems to have made then grow up a bit and we are all getting on really well and we are really involved with my niece Georgia's life which is great.
My health has been up and down lately and my last two sets of blood tests have indicated that I have an upset liver so I have had to have a liver scan and more blood tests which I am waiting for the results of.
Although our house was supposed to be secure we have been given 2 months notice to quit so now we are unsure what our future holds.
After waiting nearly 3 years the good news was we got a letter on the same day to say our date for the initial information evening you get invited to before starting your IVF treatment. Its 19th June. As you can imagine we are excited as we have something to focus on but stressed as to how our future will pan out with finding somewhere to live as the council say we are not classed as homeless until our actual eviction date and then they only legally have to offer you one property which you have to accept no matter what or where it is.
We know we will cope we always do and we have a long journey ahead but we have the support of family and friends which means a lot to us.
I just wish that we could concentrate solely on preparing for the IVF process and not worrying about where we are gonna live as stress will add to the success/failure factor of the treatment.
