No living sperm cells
The results were clear and devastating: there were no living sperm cells. Not even one sperm cell was to be found. I can’t begin to explain how devastated we were. We were declared infertile and sterile and the pain of knowing that we couldn’t have more children was unbearable. As the months passed, the pain only got worse.
Later, I decided to contact European Sperm bank – just to talk about our öptions and to get some information about using a sperm donor. I have to admit that the thought of using another man’s sperm seemed wrong. My conversation with the sperm bank changed that.
I began feeling that we actually had opportunities and I introduced the idea of using a sperm donor to my husband. Let’s just say that he wasn’t too happy about the idea.
After some time, I told my husband, “I am going to do this – I am going to use a donor.” I chose to use a sperm donor who looked most like my husband, but after several inseminations, there was no news.
Succes with a new sperm donor
In the meantime, European Sperm Bank found me a new sperm donor who looked even more like my husband. I, therefore, decided to change sperm donor.
FINALLY, I was pregnant!
It was a tough pregnancy. My husband was sceptical, maybe even detached from the pregnancy. I had to stay strong and convinced that when the baby arrived he would fall in love with her.
And he did! Our second child, our lovely baby girl, was born in November 2015. We love her so much! There is no doubt that we would repeat the process.
– Today the couple is awaiting their third child with a donor through European Sperm Bank.
