Comparison between latest and older test. No diet or supps change yet MUCH better results. Still no count, but improved elsewhere. Very excited what this could mean with a bit of hard work!!
Cinder: can't really read. The pic quality is low. MrsTugs is right that a follow up is probably the first thing to do before jumping into IVF wagon.
down the bottom under treatment guideline it says "low rapid motility in wash-potential for reduced fertilisation; IVF or ICSI as clinically indicated."
I'm not sure what that means but I guess it means our best chance is IVF or ICSI?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sperm_washing) and after that process, the sperm couldn't swim well - hence why they are recommending IVF or ICSI. In ICSI the sperm wouldn't really need to swim at all because they get injected right into the egg.
Do get a second opinion, or at least ask your current doctor for more information, if you're uncertain about any part of your results or treatment.
DH has had 3 SA all up over the last 3 years, first one everything was slightly below normal, second didn't show any improvement 10mil that were slightly slow, third done by Genea everything was normal.
will be ringing westmead IVF when af shows up to make an appointment for July.
Interesting. How could the 3rd result come back normal? Something changed in between? Diet etc? FS opinion is certainly worthwhile.
CinderElla88.... yes, definitely it sounds like ISCI is the thing you need. But with good numbers like that, you sound like you should have good success with ISCI. AFM.... my sister's EPU went really well this morning. She got 10 eggs, and later in the day found out that 9 of them were mature, which we're over-the-moon about. They looked at my DH's sperm sample, but as always, nothing there, so used the anonymous donor sperm that we'd chosen. Now just have to wait until the morning to find out how many fertilise. I so hope the DS is good and does what it needs to, especially since my sister did such a good job producing nice little eggies :-)) I guess out of our hands now.
Good luck Bertie! I hope you get some great embies out of those
