Question Sterile After allogeneic bone marrow transplant??


My husband had a allogeneic (Donor - related) bone marrow transplant in July 2007. He seems to Finally be on the road to recovery after a whole list of complications including mild GVHD (Graph Verses Host Disease). We have only been married for 3 years and we have a son (14 months). Before the treatment started his dr suggested we store some sperm because of the risk of sterility... we did. The thing is I'd really like to exhaust all other options to try to concieve a baby naturally. Does anyone out there have any advise regarding this??

Any help would really be great!

Re: Sterile After allogeneic bone marrow transplant??

There are tests your husband can have to dertermine what his fertility situaiton is. Depending on what the transplant entailed (was it chemo alone or radiation and chemo?) that chances are more than likely your husband is sterile..that's unfortunately the nature of the transplant regime. I myself have been tested and while I'm not sterile the doctors have advised I will probably have difficulty conceiving.
