Hi Allie I know first hand how hard it is.We were going to go through the same procedure but unfortunetly my DH had no sperm at all.What they do is retrieve ur eggs take his sperm sample and inject 1 sperm into ur egg.So instead of having millions of sperm to work with they just help the process so much more by doing this.I know the success rate is very good when doing IVF.If u look it up do a google search there is so much info online about the procedure.I am sure u will be able to get exact #'s.Anyway I am so sorry for what u are going through but just be happy u can give ur DH his own child where as I am using donor:( .We did everything possible he even had a testie biopsy to see if maybe he had some sperm in his testicles, but no nothing.It was devastating to hear u could not give ur DH the one thing he wants most in life.Something that is a symbol of ur love.I wish u all the luck in the world and it is a good thing u ck out good just like me.Keep positive.We are here for u.:angel:
Hi Allie,

I am so so sorry about DH's sperm. I know it must have been hard news for both of you to here. The good thing is you know what it is an don't have to endure the months of pain and frustration with failed IUI's. You can go straight to the most successful rates for treament IF. So that is the good news. I really am hopeful that IVF can work for you guys. From what I understand b/c I am not at IVF yet but may be soon...each office has a specific success rate. I would ask your RE what there success rate is. It may even be posted on their website. My RE's office has a 85-90% success rate with IVF which I am very happy about. But most are usually between 50 and 65%..from what I know. Some of the others on the board may be able to give you more percentages to compare. I personally would not see and RE with an IVF sucess rate less than 50-60% since it is so costly. Also did they discuss a SHARE program with you? So that if IVF fails after 3 cycles...which I really hope it doesn't... but if it does.... will they give a portion of the money back?If I do IVF it is $12,000 which includes 3 cycles attempts with IVFand if they do not result in a birth we get $7,000 back. Also did they give DH anything to increase morphology, if not ask RE what vitamin the recommend and what foods and drinks he should cut out to assist with morpholgy. My DH has bad morphology too and he was put on Fertility Blends for Men.

Hang in there and remember that we are here for you anytime!!!!

hi allie, im so sorry, and know exactly how you feel.. when me and dh first saw a re he looked at both of my dh's results and told us there would be no use in us doing iui we had to jump straight to ivf/icsi.. he did make dh see a urologist first, but the urologists didnt find anyting that he thought might be causing such low numers 4% morph, 45% motility, and only 200,000 count! this yr my re office had a 75% success rate for ivf, unfortunatly i guess i am in the 25% because after 2 ivfs no pregnancy.. but A LOT of women have gotten pregnant this way, and with icsi they arent waiting with the sperm and egg in a pietri (spelling?) dish to meet, they and fertilize, they are choosing the best sperm and fertilizing the egg!!! i do agree it is good to know what the problem is, and not have to go through other stuff just to be told you need ivf, but i feel your pain, because ivf is the most advance a.r.t treatment out there, and to start off doing that can be VERY scary, and then theres the fear if this doesnt work what next, with iui you can move onto ivf.. its a lot, but you will be ok!! i was scared the first time, but things get better, and you are already apart of this community here, which helps! i know it helped me tremendously!! any specific questions please ask :)
