Ashley’s obstetrician referred them to Dr. Lipshultz’s practice, but they were not hopeful. Jerry worried that he and his wife would need a sperm donor. Though their case was challenging, it was not impossible. “When Dr. Lipshultz comes into the room, he leaves the impression that you’re talking to an old friend. He talked me through everything, and he did it in a way that didn’t make conceiving seem like a far reach,” Jerry said. Positive results from a testicle biopsy finally convinced Jerry that having a baby was achievable.
Months of daily shots and two unsuccessful attempts later, Jerry and Ashley became pregnant with their son, Levi. Levi was born on October 29, 2019, and recently celebrated his first birthday with his very happy mom and dad.
“When you have a kid, it makes you feel small in the world. I shed tears. It was miraculous,” Jerry admitted. “Dr. Lipshultz creates life where there wasn’t any.”
“There’s no one else I would recommend,” Jerry added. “We referred three people to him, and one of them had a vasectomy and is pregnant. There are so many infertile couples out there. It’s not just a women’s issue.”
