TTC

I'm happy to be back on the orum in the new year. I have tried to fall pregnant for 2 years now, i'm 31 years old, this year i had a problem with my tubes which was sorted out, my gynae confirmed that my man's spems are not enough when we tried insemination. I need help, what to do, where to go? I'm very desperate. I need a baby..

Wow Babie,

Two years is a long time ( I've been ttc for 2yr 8 months and know your frustrations). My best advise would be to make an appointment with a fertility specialist (search ananzi dot com for SA clinics in your area). Be sure to take all previous medical records and test results with you. If you ask your gynae or GP for them and explain that you are seeing a specialist they should not have a problem to do that.

The benefit of seeing a fertility specialist is that infertility is their business and they go about your problem in a very systematic way. A good specialist should give you ample information and answer all your questions. He/she should also be able to give you a good idea of your treatment options and the costs involved. The specialists can be expensive and they do not all charge the same prices. If cost is an issue (most medical aids do not pay for fertility treatments although blood tests and routine "check ups" may be covered) you should shop around or make an appointment at a state fertility clinic. Most medical aids do pay a basic tarrif at such a facility.

If you find a clinic in your area post a message on this forum to ask about the clinic and it's staff's reputation. Also, someone on this forum may have some experience as to the costs charged at the clinic to give you some idea of what you can expect.

Make it your New Year's resolution to do something about this issue and take control of your fertility. It is very liberating to find the reason for your infertility and have some concrete options to pursue. All the best!
