Post subject: Help!
Me and my partner have been trying for a baby for 4 years!
Went to my GP a while back to be told we cannot concieve naturally!
My partners sperm count is less than 1 million. I got told I may have PCSO. But had no testing. Then to be told to lose two stone and get my BMI down to 30 or less which I have recently achieved!
Phoned hospital 3 weeks ago to say my BMI is down to 30. They told me to phone on the 1st day of my cycle (which is due 01.03.09). Then on that day I have to go to hospital to have a vaginal scan (not sure what this means)!
Was wondering what stage would be next for me! Does anyone know?
I am hoping someone who is going through similar problems will be able to help me!
PLEASE!
Thank you.

Hi hun, a vaginal scan is where they gently insert a tiny camera scan thingy into your vagina to check how your uterus is. I would call your clinic and ask them to talk you through the investigations you will have.

Good luck hun, as far as i know a low sperm count and pcos are not barriers to achieving pregnancy through ICSI.

Hi lillia,
Thank you for you reply!
I am a bit worried about the vaginal scan!

What does ICSI stand for and what does that entail?

Hi hun,
ICSI is where they inject a single sperm into a single egg so having a low sperm count will not effect it. You would be given drugs to make you produce several eggs and then they will be injected with a sperm and put back (max of 2 eggs at a time)

The fab thing about ICSI is you only need 1 sperm Wink

What clinic are you going to? Do they have a website?

Good luck
