Hello my name is Jessyca and I am new to this group. I joined because I hope to get support and advice. I guess I should start with my story. My DH and I have been married 5 years and been trying to conceive for a year. In August 2008 I was diagnosed with mild PCOS. I did not have the typical symptoms, other than long cycles. So my doc put me on met and it has been working. But after months, we still did not conceive. After much persuasion I convinced DH to be tested. Last week we received the results and his had 0 sperm! She said volume was good but no sperm. I am crushed, they kinda made me feel as if there was no hope because my DH had mumps when he was in HS and they said that was probably the cause and we should speak to an infertility specialist and look into donor sperm. I couldn't believe it as we are both young, me 26 and him 27. We are healthy and I just can't understand this. I did research and online they say mumps usually only causes sterility in men if it progresses to the testicals. DH said that did not happen and that in fact he never tested positive for mumps despite the symptoms. So I am just at a loss. We have an apt. next Thursday with a urologist, but I can't help but feel hopeless as DH refuses to consider donor sperm worst case scenario (and I can't say I blame him, as I completely understand how devastating this must be to him to). I do not object to adoption and have always wanted to but I still have the tremendous urge to experience pregnancy, and the fact that I may not is just so devastating, especially when it seems everyone around me is having babies. I guess I am just wondering if anyone else has experience with this or any knowledge about this condition. Sorry this is so long but a week seems so long to wait before I can get any kind of answers, so I hoped someone maybe has experienced this and can give me advice. Thanks in advance.
