My DH and I have been TTC for 2 years. After being told in May of 2007 that DH's sperm was "above average," we now find out that his count is only 3 million and his motility is only at 30%. The first analysis was "way off" to say the least. To top it off, I have been diagnosed with mild-moderate endometriosis and was just told tonight that my egg quality is very poor, despite the fact that I'm only 28. I also have a blood disorder that is known to cause miscarriages, even though I've never been pregnant and therefore can't say first hand. I guess my question is this: Even with IVF/ICSI, is it really likely that I would conceive on the first try with such low sperm quality and egg quality? I can only afford one try, and I am not even sure that technology can help in my case. Is there anyone else out there who has poor sperm and poor eggs? I've never read about this before, and I think it might be time for me to finally accept that our TTC journey has come to and end. I am in shock and devastated because until yesterday, my DH and I thought that mild endo. was our only real problem. Thanks for listening to me. I don't even know if any of this made sense. I just feel so alone, sad, angry, and hopeless right now. I just can't believe that my DH and I will never have a child of our own. I just needed someone who could listen and understand because I've never felt so sad in my entire life.
