It’s been seven months since we started trying to conceive. And we have had seven months of lonely, one-pink lines.
Yep, we’re still not pregnant.
So my husband went to get his sperm checked again.
Last time he had it checked, we were very optimistic because, while he had a low sperm count, the sperm had high motility (moving and swimming sperm).
This meant it was still possible to get pregnant, and also possible that his count would improve over time.
But it seems not to be the case. The sperm count is still very low.
To put things into perspective, we are pretty damn lucky that my husband is even ALIVE after having cancer, and to NOT be seriously handicapped by chemotherapy and multiple surgeries. So having a low sperm count seems like a lucky escape.
His doctors are now of the opinion that this low sperm count is permanent, and while it remains technically possible to get pregnant, it is also highly unlikely. We could be trying for 7 years!
And so now we have to decide what to do.
Do we investigate medical treatment options?
Or just be happy with the two beautiful boys we are already blessed with?
Lots to think about.
