Feeling hopeless ttc

Been trying for a year. My fiance barely ejaculates (when he does it usually goes to his bladder, called retrograde ejaculation). He refuses to so a doctor or try other means. He says if he can't have children the natural way the he won't have children at all. I feel pregnancy is becoming just a dream that will never happen. It's breaking my heart. Any positive stories with this type of challenge?

Hi J_and_D... I'm so sorry your feeling this way huni that is so so sad. I am on the ivf bus also at the moment. My husband is very similar if he can't have kids via the ivf path he doesn't want any at all I. E adoption etc. Where as I am pretty open to adoption. Just you stay positive and hope it all works out for you huni. Always here if u need a wee chat x x x

How annoying that men are stubborn and embarrassed!!

There is a way to do ivf were they extract the sperm via the ball sack. Sorry that's very blunt but didn't know how else to say/explain that. It's an option to have your own.

I'd have to have the 'chat' and think seriously what I wanted and what you want as a couple. I'm grateful my fella was open to ivf. Otherwise I don't know if I would have stayed. Sound harsh but all I've ever wanted in life was a baby, I'm not particularly career focused I just wanted to make a family.
