Dealing With Infertility Sucks!

My husband and I have been married for almost 5 years. We started trying to conceive back in September of '07. I was on BCP and stopped it then. I was late in April of '08 and thought that I was for sure preggers. Well, I wasn't. After many tests my OB decided to request a ***** Analysis for my husband. We received the results from this rude and abnoxious nurse, she said "oh you have no ***** at all"......everything went blank.

I looked over at my husband and he was devastated. She proceeded to tell us how it was probably irreversible and that we should consider adoption, but that we had to go see an urologist because it looked like there was an infection too.

Needless to say, I wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. How could she be so cold?! I couldn't understand it. We did see an urologist, and he is amazing. Dr. Minor was very attentive and reassured us that we would get to the bottom of this. He mentioned some conditions that my husband could possibly have but that nothing was for sure until we got the blood tests results.

On August 13, 2008, we had the results back. Dr. Minor had called us after our initial appointment to let us know what the name of the condition was, since he said "I'm sure you guys were overwhelmed yesterday".....of course we were and I love that he called us himself. Well, DH was diagnosed with Klinefelter's Syndrome and with that I knew that the chances of us having his biological child was near impossible.

Dr. Minor ordered a bilateral biopsy but nothing came of that. We were now devastated and we knew that we only had a couple of choices here. I wanted to make sure that my husband was comfortable with whatever choice we made. We chose what we call "adoption of a *****". AKA we're using a ***** donor.

We went to see an infertility specialist and we've been dealing with this. We tried our first IUI back in January, but that was not successfully, more tests were made, I was diagnosed with PCOS. (great, I know). We tried another IUI and again no success.

We are currently waiting for our third shot. I have to sit out a couple of weeks because with PCOS I develop a lot of cyst after a medicated cycle.

Waiting SUCKS, having to deal with this SUCKS. But I love my husband and we know that no matter what happens we will have children. We hope that we can experience pregnancy  (I truly want to be pregnant, I want it so bad!!!). But if that doesn't happen, well, we will pursue adoption. I've always wanted to adopt. If not for our first child, then for sure for our second and/or third.

Thanks for letting me share our journey, so far...
