Dear Desperate

IVF would be a suitable option having waited 4 years and no obvious problem detected. The possibility of fertilisation failure is a serious consideration and can be best tested in a laboratory environment. I suggest you visit the website for more information.

Staminogro, take for approx 3 months. Lots of Zinc and L-argine and cartine seemed to work.

Hi Desperate

I know exactly how you feel. My husband and i tried to fall pregnant even before we were married, and after we got married, so also for 4 years we had no result. What did your gynea say, did he refer you any place. I'm went to a fertility clinic in my area and they had all the info. I went through all the test, and i was fine, then the doctor said we must test my husband's sperm, and he was the problem. He had poor quality sperm, it wasn't mobile enough to make me pregnant. So they suggested IVF (Invertro fertilization), it is very expensive, and depends on your age. So the younger the cheaper, but not that cheap, i paid R25 000 and that is the strating rate. Everything went well, the treatment aswell as 2 eggs was graded perfect. I fell pregnant, but had a miscarriage at 2 months. My husband and i was devasted. They then put my husband on on tablets to boost his sperm and told us to go on a healthy diet and excercise. We did that and without any help i fell pregnant in February, i'm now 6 1/2 months pregnant, and the same thing happened to my friend, but everybody is different, so go to a fertility clinic, check on the internet, they give good advice. Tell me, did your husband go a a semen analysis?
