My name is Lauren. I'd like to share my journey thus far with TTC. I am 37 years old, turning 38 this April and H is turning 45 this May, so by reproduction standards we are basically geriatric (although I don't agree with that). We have been TTC for some time now and my OB/GYN suggested that H do a semen analysis. I get AF regularly, every 26 days on the nose and ovulate the same day each month. H's semen analysis came back with him having only 3% normal sperm cells. The rest are amorphous, large heads, pin heads, coiled tails, etc. As you can imagine this news hit him hard. He went to see an urologist and received an ultra sound because they thought he had a varicocele. He also has to go back for another semen analysis this week, so fingers crossed.
In the interim we were recommended to a RE, and the Dr's think an IUI would be the best course for us. We have our appointment on Jan 22. I am unsure what to expect and would love to connect with women who have had successful IUI's and discuss more.
