Hi all! Pretty bummed just got bfn on our last natural cycle, so it's on to IUI. I've heard really negative things though about using IUI for low sperm motility. Counts ok, but motility is around 23% with 21% forward moving. I know IVF would be a better option, but there's no way we can afford that. Is there any hope with IUI? Anyone else with low speem motility?
Well good luck with your first go around!!! I hope you get your bfp!! His count was fine at 94 million but the overall motility was 23% with 21% forward moving. We only did one sa, which I think is a little weird. Most docs want 2 I think, but we don't have a fertility doc in town I've just been talking to my ob. He's been taking vitamins that are for male fertility, so I was hoping they would make a difference.
No. I was pretty disappointed. His SA was something to the effect of 119mil (and he said he only abstained like 12 hours before even though they wanted 36hrs ) But for the IUI his unwashed was like 3.6mil and washed was 3.1mil - I was kind of surprised. The clinic said that was just fine but from reading on here it seems low.
