Just feeling so low about this whole fertility thing. Wish I wasn’t so helpless

Hi Shily
I am so sorry to hear that you are so low about the fertility thing. Anyway, you need not to. Modern science and technology have allowed women to conceive and give birth to healthy kids. I think you need to try it. I will recommend that you try the latest assisted reproduction procedure ICSI. Wait a minute I explain what it is all about. It is a procedure that can be used to help a couple conceive if they have a have low sperm motility. What happens is that the woman will be stimulated so that the ovaries can produce an egg. The egg is collected and injected with a single sperm from the partner. It will be observed for two to three days before it is transferred to your womb. If excess embryos were collected, they could be frozen and used in future. You will be required to rest for two weeks before you can be tested for pregnancy. Notice that before the sperm that is collected from your husband is used, it will be examined by an embryologist to determine whether it is suitable for ICSI or not. ICSI does not guarantee that fertilization will take place as soon as the sperm is injected into the egg. This is why it will be observed for three days before it is transferred. If fertilization didn’t take place, the procedure would be repeated. With this procedure, 1 -3 eggs may be transferred to the womb. Men with zero sperm count can have the sperm retrieved surgically. If no sperm is available, the couple can rely on a donor.

Hi, I can very well understand the situation you are going through. The infertility in women or even in men, makes them extra frustrated and angry. They just can’t accept their destinies and start clinging to blame themselves. You are living in an era where infertility is treatable and getting your own biological baby is possible. I would really suggest you to go for surrogacy or IVF, both of them entirely different procedures and the waiting time is approximately the same. But these two does give hope to parents without children.

Hi ShillHi Shilly,
I am sorry for the situation you are in my dear. I understand how the fertility ogre can weigh down a person and leave her helpless. However, it is important that you remain positive. You need to look at life from a broader perspective. It should not be limited to children. I know a couple of friends who have children, but it is like they live in hell. It is for this reason that I sometimes tell people to take a step and think. I am not saying that kids are bad, No! They are the treasure we all need and look forward to. However, kids can sometimes become a nightmare and cause you a lot of trouble. So we should always be happy with whatever little the God gives us. Even though, let me say that infertility is no longer a threat the way it used to be. IVF, IUI, and surrogacy are some of the options you can rely on to fight the monster. If you cannot ovulate and produce mature eggs, you can rely on donor egg and still conceive. Doctors will stimulate you to grow your endometrium. The donated egg will be fertilized in the lab using your DH’s sperm and have the resultant embryo transferred into your uterus. Your DH will be the biological father of the child, and you will all be happy parents. So my dear, don’t feel low about fertility. There is a way out. Just go for a checkup and establish the cause of your infertility and leave the rest to the doctors.
