Iui #2
Sep 9, 2007
I would appreciate any input you all might have for me... I am new to this stuff and am full of questions.
I am 37 (38 in Nov). My husband is 6 years younger than I am. We have been married for a little over 3 years now.
I went off bc pills in Feb of 05 and we have not gotten pregnant yet. Hubby went in for an analysis, since that is usually the first step with infertility. His count was a little over 20 million, but the motility and morphology were lower than normal. We tested him again recently and the situation was the same. Dr thought that some times with each cycle it could vary a little-maybe improve. His first test was over a year ago and we just kind of hung out waiting to see if it just MIGHT happen naturally. Neither of us were in a huge hurry. Now that I am almost 38, I am feeling the pinch since I am closer to 40 and chances of getting pregnant get lower each year, and the risks higher.
I was tested for progesterone levels and that was normal, so I am ovulating. There doesnt appear to be anything negative for me, except for my age, at this point. Currently, I am using a fertility monitor and have been for the last 3 months, so I know that I ovulate at 10-12 days with a 27-29 day cycle.
The obgyn decided that first of all we should try IUI. Since I am ovulating he didnt think I needed any meds. Our problem appears that the motility is keeping the egg from getting fertilized. They just cant get where they need to be to meet up with the egg. With a little help getting the champs right up there, he thinks we might be sucessfull. We did our first IUI 8/24, using only Ovudel to ensure ovulation at the exact time.
I got my period today. :0(
SO...... we are off to a second cycle and I am considering trying Clomid for the rest of our attemps with this. I will be contacting the drs office tomorrow to discuss. Wondering about side effects and if it is pretty effective. Figured it sure couldnt hurt to try!
Anyone know anything about guys taking clomid to improve the count?
Also, has anyone heard of Letrozole (Femara)??
I am curious if there is anyone out there that has experience with this situation? or even something similiar?
Looking forward to hearing from you!
