Re: My story
Jul 6, 2005
Hi Dan,
Thanks for sharing your story. DH and I are also dealing with Male Factor. He too has a varicocele, but very very small and the urologist did not feel that repairing it would make a difference. DH is in the military and unfortunately they do not have a urologist that specializes in male factor, as a matter of fact I don't know if there is even a civilian one where we live. I was able to get insurance through my job and am seeing an RE. When we went to see him, he looked at the 2 SAs that the military did and he wanted to move right to IVF with ICSI. I kind of felt like that was jumping the gun. I see that as the last resort and if you start at the end and that doesn't work...then what. My insurance will only pay for IVF one time. So we decided to try IUI. We just did our first IUI this past weekend. Unfortuately, DH's numbers were REALLY REALLY LOW....lower than ever before. The doc isn't very hopeful...but as DH keeps only takes one good swimmer. I should know by the end of next week if it works...if not, I know that the doc is going to want to move to IVF. I asked him if there was anything to help him with the count and he didn't seem to think. I know you read about some guys on Clomid and such, but I don't think there is any sure proof that it works. My doc seems to have problems with wanting to try things that he doesn't think will work. I am thinking of asking him again though if the IUI didn't work. I have also read a lot about Fertility Blend for men and I think we are going to try that. It contains Vitamin C, E, B6, Folic Acid, B12, Zinc, Selenium, and a mixture of L-Caritine (not sure which one), Green Tea, and Dong Quai. I don't know if it will work but figure it's worth a try...right? It is only about $80 for 3 months.

Well, good luck! This is a tough road..and we just started.....It is nice to know others are dealing with this. Seems like everyone I talk to has no experience with MF.
