Hey everyone. Alot have asked to be able to talk about pregnancy. So lets talk. I have always been different cause I have never wanted kids. When I take my nephew out I love it. I would make a great parent but its a huge doubt for me. its different for me but I know many of you have wanted to talk about it so lets do it. I want to know what bothers you or any issues u have with it. I hope that you all want to talk and I will read and respond to everyone.... Let me know if I can help!

I have Great News.... at least I think it is... my friend Jen is now pregnant.... let me explain... she got married 5 yrs ago and her Husband was DX'ed with Testicular cancer shortly after.... he had frozen sperm because they wanted kids. they were told there was no chance of conciving naturally and he kept gettin tested to see if his count was comin back up and it hadnt so they tried the invetro fertilization..... how ever u spell it and thats like $2000 a try but since they had the money saved for just in case they did it and the chances are low for it to work and it didnt.... it broke her heart...

well about a year ago his counts began to come up and recently she got pregnant!!!!! she is soooo happy because they have been seriously trying for 2 years to get pregnant and have kids. Im so excited for her and we keep joking around because Im friends with her sister too. Her sister Amy is married and hasnt even tried to have kids yet because she was afraid that it would hurt Jen. Though jen would have been excited it still may hurt that Amy may get pregnant easily.... So I am hoping now Amy will descide soon to have kids....

I thought this was a great story to share!!!!!

Hi kristin,
Thanks for posting that! As a male that had chemo an rads, I had always wondered about my sperm being unable to get a woman pregnant. But I had a sperm test a while back... a little awkward... but the results came back positive. So, men.... dont let the treatments bring you down. Have your *boys* checked. You may be surprised.
