Hello to anyone who take taken the time to ready our story.
We are a couple 33 (myself) and my wife 31 who live in Northamptonshire who crave the oppotunity to become parents but unfortunately I'm unable to make this happen.
While I was in school I was beaten up and Recieved some kicks to my man parts and in turn the trauma has caused my pituitary gland on the underside of my brain to stop working and be clinically diagnosed as having zero output.
My condiction Is called Hypopituitarism, if you wish to read up about it you can see some of the symptoms I have to deal with on a daily basis but to cut a long story short it affects my hormones including my testosterone and in turn that obviously affects my testicle function. Since being diagnosed with the condition as a knock on effect I now have diabetes.
We both work, I have never claimed a penny from the government and remain independent dispite my condition.
We have undergone tests with the NHS but we don't meet there criteria for treatment, there is just no break for us in life! What are we here for if we can't have a family and leave our legacy behind... It just seams unfair that those with the money that could afford the treatment we desperately crave get it handed on a plate while those of us that have a illness and can't afford the treatment get left behind.
We both live in hope that we will have a family But unfortunately without getting ourself a in debt it's unlikely we can ever make the treatment happen.
