Hi Rat - thanks for your response. Well we have been actively TTC No. 2 for 15 months. In June my hubby was diagnosed with low morphology (2 %), but a very high count (417 million) and good motility. Again, the advise was IVF, but we arent covered for IVF (we are in the states now) so it just really isnt an option.
I must add that we have not had one + hpt in this time. Thats not for a lack of testing, either.

I am just feeling very bleh about the whole process and just wanted to hear if it is at all possible. What gets me, is that my son, was a complete surprise, so I dont understand how that can happen so easily and now we struggle so much.

Anyone else have any motivating stories to share?

thanks foquita
his had 3 SA they were 1m - 5m- 18m. that was a little bit strange to have that much difference result
and his motility was 90% all the time. we also used pressed as lubricant because his volume was not good either.
i should say he is happy we are pregnant naturally and he made it

My DH had a morphology of 1% a year ago. It was at a high stress time in his life, working crazy hours overnight as a manager in retail. And he was smoking at the time. We had also not done the BD for over a week as I had AF.
A friend of ours who is an herbalist recommended a few supplements for him including zinc, prosta palmetto, and milk thistle.
He won't go back to get tested again because he hated the experience of giving a sample, but we've kind of decided not to worry about his side of things. I have PCOS and we seem to be finally making progress in getting my body working correctly, so we're "giving his sperm up to God" haha, and not worrying about it.

Thought I'd give an update.... 3days ago I finally got my bfp after ttc for 2yrs. OH has low sperm count. It can happen.

He started taking maca and zinc and also wore no boxers. I'm sure the vitamins helped. Good luck to u all and keep positive I never thought I would ever get a bfp and have xxx

Congratulations to all of the ladies that got BFP despite the male factor challenges!!

This thread gives me alot of hope!!!I love reading the success stories!!!

My DH has a low sperm count after getting a 14 year old vasectomy reversed. It has been almost 3 years since his was reversed. I recently had surgery also, a hysteroscopy to remove a polyp in my uterus, and a laparascopy to make sure my second tube wasn't blocked, I now have 2 open tubes!! My DR discovered scar tissue and endometriosis and everything got cleaned up/ removed, I am eager to start TTC again and almost all healed up sine my surgery, and hoping that despite DH's low #'s I can get my BFP. We are going to do a few rounds of timed with clomid and than a few rounds of IUI.

I also have my DH on fertility vitamins for men and they did help improve my DH's count and motility!! I highly recommend vitamin supplements to any one that has a man with low numbers, it really does help, and it has helped my DH!!His second SA showed improvent and got high enough for us to qualify for IUI.

Here is a link to a thread of ladies that have men that had vasectomy reversals, and their OH's had low sperm counts, and there have been many success stories with some men with pretty low numbers... I just thought I would share!!
