IUI #1-Not what I expected..

Totally bummed over here! We had our first IUI yesterday..last month DH's numbers from his 2nd SA were 38.5 million, with 68%motility, yesterday his sample was only 5 million, and only 2 million were usable for the IUI. His motility was 86% tho. I asked the nurse if they even still do the IUI with those low of numbers and she said yes. The only good news is that I had two great follies, and the ultrasound tech actually saw me O..so the timing was pretty decent, nonetheless we are totally bummed! Why would his sample change so drastically in a month's time, when he hasn't changed his lifestyle. He even started the vitamin cocktail the RE recommended 2 weeks ago..do we even have a chance?
Patiently waiting for our 1st since 9/2010.
Dealing with MFI, good count, good motility, 3% morph-HSG all clear, all other test results came back normal, IUI is our next step
May 2012- Clomid 50mg + IUI = BFN
June- Cycle Break
July- Forced cycle break due to cysts
August- Femara, Trigger, IUI#2= ?

    I'm so sorry to hear that.  Yes, you still have a chance.  I'm not sure but could he have been sick 72 days ago?  Fingers crossed for you this cycle.

    The same thing happened to me with my second IUI and the Urologist said it's completely normal for a man's sperm to fluctuate. Also good luck on your cycle that is great timing. Two million is a lot more than the amount that enters your cervix from sex.

    Really? I didn't know that, thanks so much for putting some optimism back into my day. It just seems like an awful big fluctuation..I don't think he's been sick lately, just allergies..

    This. Besides, think of it this way...

    You need one sperm for your egg.

    A vitamin cocktail wouldn't be affecting his sperm yet.  It takes 72 days (I think that's the right number!) for new sperm to be ejactulated.  Good luck!
