Success stories with Male Factor Infertility


Hello everyone,

My hubby and I recently got his results back from SA that his mortility and morphology is low - and count is on the low end of normal. I'm having a hard time finding threads in here referring to MFI so I was just wondering if anyone had success stories to share? Any success stories would be appreciated, whether natural, supplements, lifestyle change or IVF/IUI. I'm looking for support and feeling a little hopeless.

I would like to know aswell, in a similar boat to u. Waiting for a referral to fs at the mo but it's already been 4wks and no referral yet.

Bless him tho he's started himself on macca pills and has stopped wearing boxers lol

I think they have to do at least 3 sa's to compare coz they can't get a true result off just 1 analysis

Xx

Hi Lollicat

We have male factor infertility, low morphology. I cant remember the exact numbers but in general he has lots of sperm just barley any swimming. We tried for 25 months never got a natural BFP. We did 3 IUI and got pregnant the 3rd time & trust me by the 3rd try I had givin up. His numbers were so low it seemed impossible, I had even went ahead and booked a follow to talk about IVF.

IUI #1 Total swimming sperm 250,000
IUI #2 Total swimming sperm 340,000
IUI #3 Total swimming sperm 2,660,000 BFP

Male factor here too with successful IUI. Morph was really low, like 1% and motility and count were not great. We tried one IUI naturally which didn't work and were successful with femera and trigger on our second. I absolutely thought we were out that cycle when I heard the count, too - it can work!! GL to you!

Same here, my DH SA was horrible, after many supplements it improved alot and after 3 IUI's we were successful. Our 3rd IUI was actually his worst count (we had bd the night before). We were going to be moving onto IVF the next cycle.

Hi ladies, we are pregnant!! Looks like you can conceive with a low count.
We fell the last cycle before IVF was scheduled, can't believe it
