I was recently told by a fertility specialist that my tubes were blocked and my only way of conceiving would be IVF. This is devastating news and my fiance and I are trying to get through this horrible news. Neither one of us have children and we desperately want children, but the cost of IVF is unbelievable. My doctor also suggested that I have my fallopian tubes removed before pursuing IVF, but she said it was something that I didn't have to do, but that I should think about it. Does anyone know if this is completely necessary? Will this increase my chances of IVF working.View Thread
This seems all too familiar as I am going through the same thing. I was told my tubes were blocked and my only option is IVF. We just have to keep our heads up and pray that we get what we want in the end. Good luck and I hope everything works out for you!View Thread
Hi nene108! I think all men have issues with their ego being hhurt and they may feel as if they are less than a man when they have these issues. My fiance and I have been trying to conceive for a while now and of course we had to go through tests and he had to have the sperm analysis. I just kept reassuring him that no matter what, we would get through this together. So let him know that you have with him all the way and that you will stand by him regardless of the results. This is not as easy for men to go through as it may be for wome. Best of luck girl!View Thread
