Question
Posted by: Delia | 2008/12/20

Any chance at all?

My husband (47)had testicular cancer and had chemotherapy in 2003. The last sperm count was done in 2006 and then he had about a 5% fertility rate. I (31)was recently diagnosed with endometriosis and would like to know what our chances are of conceiving. I was never pregnant before. We both have quite a stressfull lifestyle and long work hours but do have sex approximately 5 times a week for the past 8 years. We are not trying to conceive, and do not use any contraceptives but it is something I' m wondering about. I would greatly appreciate your answer.

I (32)was recently diagnosed with endometriosis and would like to know what our chances are of conceiving. I was never pregnant before. We both have stressfull and demanding careers and long work hours but do have sex approximately 5 times a week for the past 8 years. We are not trying to conceive, (and do not use any contraceptives)is there any chance at all? It' s just something I'  m wondering about. I would greatly appreciate your answer
