Happy ICLW everyone! I'm glad to be participating again and I hope to do more commenting than I usually do. If you're here for the first time, welcome. If you've been here before, thanks for coming back!
Quick ttc background: I'm 38, my wife is 34. We're trying to conceive our first child and have been on this quest for over four years. My wife has PCOS and I was diagnosed in the last year and a half with azoospermia, or no sperm. After varicocele surgery (ouch), numerous tests and drug therapy with no new results, we made the decision to go forward using donor sperm. I know that this would not be every one's cup of tea but this is what I love about the blogging world. We can all make different choices, but we can still all support each other just the same.
Other background: I'm Irish, born and raised. I came to Canada just over ten years ago when I married my lovely wife. I started this blog to help other guys (and their partners) get a glimpse into male infertility from a guy's perspective. I also blog with my wife over at Conceive so please stop by there too.
After taking a number of months off, my wife and I are back to fertility treatments this month for dIUI #3. She is currently in the midst of a protocol of Femara and Follistim. She is also not a fan of needles AT ALL so I'll be blogging about my experience on the other end of the needle in an upcoming post.
Again, thank you for stopping by. I hope that you'll consider staying a while by becoming a blog follower. I promise to take some time this week to ensure that I'm following all of you new followers back.
Happy ICLW everyone. Please keep your fingers crossed for us this cycle.
