Woman Allergic To Her Husband’s Sperm FINALLY Conceives, After $110,000 and Nine Years Of Trying!

The Sadlers refused to let the bizarre medical phenomenon stop them from starting a family – and in December they became parents to twin baby daughters!

Rachael and Mark Sadler spent nearly a decade — and their life savings — traveling the globe, trying different fertility treatments to help them start a family, only to discover not only was she allergic to her husband’s sperm — her body was riddled with ‘killer cells’ that were destroying their babies!

The Sadlers started trying for babies soon after marrying in 2002. When two years passed without any sign of a pregnancy, they sought help from fertility specialists in the UK.

Repeated attempts still brought no luck for the couple — so they decided to travel to the US to speak to experts there.

It was doctors in California who discovered Rachael was actually allergic to her husband’s sperm! In addition it was found she had an unusually high number of ‘killer cells’ in her uterus that were attacking any foreign object placed there.

The experts advised her to travel to Mexico, where she underwent Lymphocyte Immunization Therapy, to inject 40-year-old Mark’s white blood cells into his wife’s body.

After five sessions of the expensive treatment and another round of IVF, Rachael, 30, finally conceived twins in 2008 — only to miscarry them both after 14 weeks when the babies’ umbilical cords became tangled in her womb.

The devastated pair refused to give up and returned to the UK, where they embarked on their fifth bout of IVF in 2010 after yet more treatment to reduce the killer cells.

This time it worked! The pregnancy went smoothly and Rachael gave birth to twins Rebecca and Hazel in Coventry, England last December.

How did they stay so positive through all the devastating disappointment? Rachael explains, “I never accepted that I wouldn’t be a mother. I was determined to do anything I could to have a baby. And now I finally have my beautiful daughters, I feel complete. It has been worth all the heartache to have them with us after everything we have been through.”

What an incredible story, HollyMoms!
