Anyone have success stories? I'm needing some encouragement today.

I'm hoping for some too! My husband has low motility, poor morphology, and low over all count. We are having our first iui this week hopefully depending on ovulation. I am not ovulating either so im on clomid. I'll let you know how it goes also!

Good luck!! We had our first IUI yesterday, DH has bad motility. But I did great with clomid. I have 5 mature follicles. Baby dust to you :-)

We have low mortility but usually the sperm washing before insemination helps. Got bfp on 1st iui ended in mc, 2nd iui bfn, 3rd iui bfp. So it's possible. My dh started taking fertile aid as well and his numbers improved also.

Thanks giftlove!! I'll have to look into that. I've never heard of it!! The doctor was kind of less hopeful than we wanted but that's okay, he doesn't have to be I guess as long as we don't lose our faith! My DH felt terrible though, love his little heart. We are praying for a bfp :-) I think the timing of the IUI was actually perfect because the timing of my cramps and everything. We'll see :-)

Just curious why none of your doctors went to IVF with ICSI? Ours is also male factor, did all the necessary steps like urologist and things. Met with fertility dr and went to IVF with ICSI..... 16 weeks pregnant now!

Well, my RE wanted us to do that. We just didn't have the $15,000 to fork out for that!!!!

my dh had very low #'s & mobility along w/ some misshaped sperm. We went to urologist ran a bunch of tests, then he was put on 50mg of clomid daily after a few months all #'s were gradually started increasing! The last iui we did he decided to double his meds. On his own & we got our best #'s ever & of first ever BFP after 3 1/2 yrs. of ttc & 5 iui's! I'm almost 27 wks. Now! Good luck!!
