Why Not Having Children

My husband and I have been trying to start a family now for over a year. We have gone to the Dr. and have had tests and there is no explanation of why we are not having children. Is it "religious, biblicial, Christian" to have artificial plantation?

Why not adopt?
---Emcee on 12/5/07

My son's father and I were married 6 years before my son arrived. We were told our chances of having a child were slim to none.
We had filled out paperwork and were awaiting a visit from an adoption agency when I discovered I was pregnant.
All in God's timing!

My sister and her husband tried to have a child for over 9 yrs. Then, she got pregnant but it was a tube pregnancy and she had to get one of her falopean tubes removed. They thought they'd NEVER have kids, but less than a year later she got pregnant, a healthy baby boy. Then another boy, then a girl. All the kids were made the old fashoined way, no dr.s were needed. Go figure?

The doctors told a cousin of mine and his wife that they would never have children. So they adopted several children. Then later on she became pregnant and gave birth to a healthy baby!

Not that it isn't good advise, but adoption is not a choice due to some circumstances that has happened in my life and family when I was younger.

A year isn't that long, unless time is running short. I'd consider adoption IF you could treat an adopted child as if it were your own. Lots of times after couples adopt they then become pregnant. So it is important that you believe that the baby or child you adopt is yours just as much as a baby by natural methods. All children need love and if you have it to give - adoption is a great solution.

Pharisee has a good answer. If you are Christian why are you asking the doctor instead of God?
---Ryan on 1/20/07

Friends of ours were married 20 years. One day she felt very ill and went to her doctor. They were pleasantly surprised that they were going to have their first baby. God's time is not the same as ours. Relax! Some doctors say that stress can keep a couple from getting pregnant.

** "there is no explanation of why we are not having children"**

Maybe it's not in God's will for you to conceive children.

"there is no explanation of why we are not having children"

Yes there is, you've been asking the Doctor though, and being that he's not the author of life he has no answer.

If any of you lack wisdom...

If your implantation is from your husband I could agree with it but if it's from a stranger I would just keep on trying the normal way or adopt children unless you are both absolutely ok with having a child from a stanger. If you both tested ok then how could a strangers sperm be better than your own husbands? I don't know of any Biblical instruction on artificial insemination. But I do know children will do anything to find their real parents. Are you ready for all this?

If there is no medical reason why you are not conceiving, why not trust the Lord for His timing in this. When He decides will be best for you.

Personally, I do not have a problem with the artificial methods in cases where there is a fertility problem, but if your docs say you are both healthy, then wait on the Lord. He is in control.

If you Husband sperm is used in a process of invitro fertilization there should be no Christian or ethical problems associated with the procedure. Some might have misgiving if donor sperm had to be used, If donor sperm is used you should contact an attorney as to legal implications. You should have a clinically qualified independent expert verify to donor medical and genetic background before using an implant from that type of source.
