Hello!


ANyone know the chances of conceiving after 40 with IVF w/ICSI? I know everyone is different and has different chances....but we have MFI and trying to figure out if going the IVF/ICSI route will really result in a BFP....DH's SA was real low....3mill/33% and even less after wash...2mill/50% with only 1% morph normal...


He is being tested again next week and has an appt w/urologist....my RE is telling me to go straight to IVF/ICI and I am wondering if it can really happen with numbers so low..

Wow Melissa, I had no idea you had gone through so much while I was away. My prayers are with you and congrats on getting through what sounds like a tough journey. Here's to holding that babe in your arms very soon!


Hugs,
Jeanne

Thanks Melissa! & Congrats & Good Luck with the Baby!!


WOW..you were lucky to hit the mark on the 1st try! I think that is what I am most afraid of.....trying and it not taking and having to try again....and again.....just such disappointment...


I was concerned with his low numbers and some days think maybe we shouldn't do it because of the disappointment and feel like I should just concentrate on our sweet DD that we already were blessed with.....but we long for another addition to our family....


I am looking into adoption, in case IVF doesn't work (if we make it there!)


well Good luck again........thanks for sharing your great news
