Just wanted some advice really or views of others who may be in our situation. My husband had a vasectomy 11 years ago after having 2 children with a previous partner. He is now 35 and i am 31. We have been together for 5 years and had the vasectomy reversed 2 years ago by a urologist at the Chaucer Hospital in Kent. 2 sperm samples showed nothing so needless to say unfortunatley it was unsuccessful. After the rather harsh out patient appointment to discuss the results we are left wondering what to do now! The consultant didn't really guide us!! After reading blogs about micro surgery to have the reversal done again it seems the chances of it working are quite good, according to the 'Dawson's Clinic in Hartlepool'???? The original reversal took less than 1 hour and the conultant said it all went back together very easily. We know that ICSI is an option but the cost and the harsh regime is very daunting, we are going to the bridge clinic in london for an open day this month to look into it further. I already have a child who is 9 and i fell pregnant naturally and had an uncomplicated pregnancy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! xx
Waaaaaa haaaaaa. At last iv found the right group for me. Im 29, my partner is 40.
He had the V 10 years after the birth of his second daughter to his now ex wife. We would love a baby of our own, so are planning on the VR some time in the next month or so. Id love to be part of the group. Xx
My DH had his reversal with Dr Dawson, and we now have a cheeky 2 year old If the original reversal wasn't done with the microsurgical method then its definitely worth getting a redo. Dr Dawson will be honest with you about your chances, you go for a consultation before the op.
Sapphire, how are you huni? Settled back here in sunny Scotland I hope lol.
Justone - Woohoooo freebie!! Fingers crossed that your lucky IVF cycle brings your baby
AFM - that's me cooked! Officially due in 2 days (9th Jan) and starting to feel a little uncomfortable now. I've had an awesome pregnancy and have loved it ... but ready now to be holding my baby in my arms and sharing our special bond with the rest of the family. One way or another - ill be snuggling with Fidget within the next 14 days . Everything is all set for a homebirth and we're good to go!
I'll keep you all updated on progress and hope to introduce our groups latest VR Baby very soon.
Hello ladies, I don't know if you remember me but I am a VR WAG! Even though we didn't get pregnant the old fashion way we did IVF and got pregnant on our FET cycle. We are expecting twins. We are on don't give up ladies!
Chatty I can't believe you are going to have your baby already! I'm so happy for you.
Awwww Happybunny! That's amazing news huni! I'm so happy for you. It's great that after quite a while of no BFPs ... they have all come along at once (and in 2's lol)
AFM - 40+4 and can't wait to meet my wee man . I've been pretty uncomfortable this evening with contractions starting through my lower back - pretty sure he's back to back right now and trying to turn before labour really starts. Been bouncing on the birthing ball and crawling about on hands and knees ... contemplating using my tens if it gets any worse. Not sure if this is "IT" but I'll let you all know
