Very low egg reserve and pre-menopausal ovaries combined with no sperm – Two babies with Natural IVF/ICSI using her own egg and husband’s testicular sperm

01 Oct 2012

Tracy aged 38, was told by another clinic that she would never have her own children. She was turned away from several fertility clinics because her FSH was very high and egg reserve was very low. She had been told her this meant she was approaching the menopause and wouldn’t be able to have a child with her own egg and donor eggs would be her only option. They weren’t ready to accept this and were absolutely devastated. Not only did she have very low egg reserve, but her husband suffered from infertility and no sperm as a result of carrying the Cystic Fibrosis gene. Despite this difficulty, she conceived with natural IVF/ICSI using her own egg and her husband’s testicular sperm. She became pregnant and had a daughter.  She returned for further treatment 2 years later against all odds and conceived again with natural IVF/ICSI and had a son. She is convinced that staying away from fertility drugs helped her to have two children with Natural IVF/ICSI.
