Hi. So DH had a normal SA. No issues. We had 3 IUIs which all were BFN. DH and I are both 31. DH's counts for IUI were 16 mill, 11 mill, and 14 mill. My RE said these counts were fine bc he likes to see the counts over 10 mill. These numbers are in the normal range but I wonder if they could be higher. I see many people post that their DHs count was above 20 mill or higher for IUIs. What do you think about his numbers? I have seen people get preg on IUI with lower numbers but IDK. Should he take some type of a supplement to increase the volume or is he fine? If so what supplements do you know of and have had success with? He takes a multi-vitamin and fish oil everyday. He doesn't smoke, doesn't go in hot tubs, and only drinks on the weekends. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
6 Failed IUIs (Clomid and Gonal F).
IVF #1 began August 2013- BC, 4 days of Estrace, stimmed with Gonal F and Menopur, Ganirelix, 9R 5M 5F, Medrol and Doxycycline, 5 day transfer of 2 early blastocysts- good quality, Progesterone, Estrace, and baby aspirin, BETA on 9/20 BFN, IVF #2 began September 2013, stimming with Gonal F (higher dose) and Menopur, Ganirelix, 18R 14M 9F with ICSI, 5 day transfer of 2 BBs one was starting to hatch, 2 frosties: 1 BB and 1 AC, BETA on 10/21, BFN BETA was a 5- chemical
Getting some more testing and trying to figure out what the issue is before FET in December, started acupuncture on 11/10, RLP and some other BW nothing major to report except slightly high Prolactin. Prolactin was slightly high when I started with my RE and I already had an MRI which was Neg. Endo biopsy=negative. WTF is wrong with us???
12/18/13 FET of 1 BB and 1 AC. Hoping for a miracle. Beta 12/26 Low BETA-8 2nd BETA 5- chemical
After 3 failed transfers IDK where to go from here. Still no real answers as to why this isn't working. Getting a second opinion in February and looking into immune testing.
