Deportivo: Honestly, I have no idea why they think he doesn't have enough for IVF? My husband contributed 4 sperm to our IVF try that got me pregnant. His sample had more, but that is all they used/needed. I highly doubt they would need more than 20-30 at the very max. And sperm don't have to be able to swim for IVF. Plenty of men who have had vasectomies have sperm removed from their testicles and they are incapable of swimming - but they ARE capable of acheiving pregnancy via IVF. Honestly, I don't know if I would wait to see the urologist if I were you. Sometimes they do find a good, fixable reason for low count. But in our case, the urologist was not able to find anything that was fixable that would be able to improve DH's count. As for supplements, I doubt they will make a huge dif either. I had my DH on all sorts of supplements from March of 2011 when we found out that he had a low count thru when we did IVF in Jan 2012 - and his count was almost always the same at every test, IUI and IVF. I'm sure you are shocked - it's overwhelming to take in! I am sorry you are dealing with this. But please do not lose faith that IVF would still work for you!! Perhaps you should call or email your doc and ask him to clarify - or look for a 2nd opinion.
Auraleigh: Hugs! I'm so sorry! I hate so much that it costs so much money to battle infertility!!! It's just so unfair!
