Hi everyone. My name is Lisa and I'm new to this board. I've been on ttc your first child board for some time now and I've now moved on to a fertility clinic and I need some advice. Here's a quick briefing on my history and my question.
I have been ttc for approx 2 years. We recently found out that dh has relatively low counts, good motility but 0-3% morphology (he battled testicular cancer about a year ago). We recently had our first appointment at a fertility clinic and the doctor is recommended trying a few IUI's before moving on to ivf...but I feel like the IUI's will be a waste of time with his low morph and I'm thinking I should just skip it and go straight to IVF. I have about a week until my next cycle starts so I need to make a decision asap and was hoping someone here could offer me some advice or insight...do you think there is a point to trying IUI with such low morph or do you think it is a waste of time?
Any insight or opinions would be so greatly appreciated. My friends don't understand b/c they have never been through anything like this so it's hard to get advice or opinions from them.
