I am not pregnant, first off.
My boyfriend and I are going to get married one day, and we want to have children after. Really, all I can ever remember is wanting to have children of my own.
BUT, my boyfriend is 6 years in remission from Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. Apairently one of the chemo’s they used to treat his cancer has the side affect of making people unable to have a child naturally. He hasn’t done too much testing to see if he has been affected because we are not currently trying to have a child.
He was saying that if it shows a low count or whatever there are drugs they can give men to stimulate those hormones to produce the little swimmers. I was wondering though, because having type 1 diabetes, do they want to do further fertality testing on me because diabetes is such a pregnancy risk factor? That is the only thing that scares me is being denied by doctors to seek medical treatment should we try, because I have type 1 diabetes.
Not having a child is out of the question for me. Should we not be able to have a biological child both of us are open to adopting a child, we want a baby one day no matter how we get it. We want to try to have a biological child first though, and I would really like to experence being pregnant at least once. Whatever happens though is what God wants to happen for us.
Overall, I was wondering if anyone with type 1 had problems becoming pregnant and if they were able to seek medical treatment (maybe IVF type stuff) to become pregnant. I haven’t seen any information really on it. Just what happens after you are already pregnant.
