My dp and I have an undiagnosed infertility issue, he has slightly low sperm volume and we have been trying for 18 months, I have a dd of 4 soon 5 year old from a previous relationship. We are not eligible for nhs treatment so are going to the bourn hall clinic in Cambridge for icsi treatment January, has anyone had this or know of others who have had this as apprehensive and need success stories to calm the nerves.
Many thanks xx

Hello!
I'm hopefully starting ICSI in the New Year too, probably going to Oxford (although Bourn Hall is on our list as well). Me and hubby have to go for final consultation with hospital on Monday to get offically referred by the NHS.
I am a bit nervous about it but more excited and relieved that things are moving forward. I'm 37 this month so feel like I'm running out of time.
Keep me updated with how you get on smile

Hi there! I'm 20 weeks pregnant with an ICSI baby. Got lucky and fell pregnant after our first round.
Its definitely an emotional roller coaster, but just remember that it really can work!
Wishing you and your DP the very best of luck! grin

I'm currently feeding my 15 day old DD who is a result of our first go at ICSI.
Agree it's a bit of a rollercoaster but definitely worth it

Hi, we had icsi at clinic in the Czech Republic. At that clinic they do icsi for all ivf treatments as a matter of course.

DD is Icsi. She is a marvel.

Watching with interest as just found out we will probably need icsi to conceive. Good luck
