Anyone here with Male factor infertility?

My husband has 1% morphology and slightly low motility but his count was super high. I consulted multiple doctors and all but one said that IVF was our only chance of conceiving. They told me that IUI would most likely not work for us. I hope that isn’t the case for you and you’re able conceive first time round :)

Hi Kristen, we had multiple analysis done both in and out of the US. The results were the same. We were told that unlike motility and count, morphology will not change with any diet or medication. One doctor even told us not to waste time and money on IUI and to proceed with IVF immediately. I’m not sure how old you are but the younger you are the more eggs you can retrieve so the higher your chances will be. I know exactly how you must be feeling and I wish you the best of luck!

Hey there! My husbands analysis showed 0% morphology 😩 we have yet to hear from the urologist and I’m getting quite frustrated...I just want more info...like yesterday haha. I’m trying to keep some hope that we may have a chance without IVF. Did your husband have multiple semen analysis done prior to them recommending IVF? Did they recommend any diet/lifestyle changes and reevaluating? I’d greatly appreciate any info you may have! Thank you and I wish you the best on your continued journey!

Yes! Currently having to lose weight to get my BMI down to 35 before fertility will take us on so hubby can have surgical retrieval/sampling.

My husband had no sperm on several semen analyses. He had a varicocele surgery, that didn't help, and then had a micro-tese which they didn't find anything with that. We were very disappointed to find out that my husband cannot have children. We don't know why either. We are now in the paperwork process of embryo adoption

Shout out to the sweet husbands who have to go through tests and procedures as well! We always thought I was ok. My cycles are regular and i ovulated according to ovulation tests. However, I had a procedure similar to an hsg and found that my tubes are blocked and my egg count and AMH is low. We considered doing IVF with sperm donation from my husband's brother, but ultimately decided to embryo adoption. I don't know if I could stand the heartache of going through IVF and not having good quality eggs.
