Here are some letters I got recently:
"We had been trying for a baby for a year and found out that my husband has azoospermia. Even ICSI and IVF cannot help us. Right now I am so angry and sad. And I am not sure who to be angry with. We have talked about donor insemination but my husband is not sure how he feels about this. I feel that there is so much more to being a parent than providing the genetic start-up. I know that if I donated eggs I would never feel that a resulting child was mine..."
"We have been trying to conceive a baby for a little over a year now and recently found out that my husband has a zero sperm count. We have tried numerous tests and very expensive options but nothing has worked... we are literally falling apart."
I wanted to take this opportunity to recommend some blogs dealing with male factor infertility:
Manana Banana - Amanda, who just gave birth to her son Adam
DI-Dad - Eric, who is raising his 2 children born by donor insemination
ProgJen - An orthodox Jewish woman dealing with male factor infertility
Got any blogs or books to recommend? Let me know!
