Semen Analysis RESULTS

Carrying on from my previous post, as you know Will had another semen analysis done to check where his sperm count is at after being on these medications that are not at all good for sperm count or their ability to fertilise an egg. Well obviously we were expecting less than his latest count ofContinue reading “Semen Analysis RESULTS”

Change of plan…

Sooooooooooo,surgical sperm retrieval didn’t happen. Here’s to yet another 2 steps back. I will try to keep this as simple as possible, as it’s quite a long story.
