Hi Dr Jessup,
My husband & I have been trying to concieve our first for about 10 months (me 29 and him 30). We finally got pregnant recently but I miscarried at 6 weeks (I think it was technically a chemical pregnancy as my hcg didn't get any higher than 580). I have endometriosis and had a lap in April with about 3 patches of endo removed. My husband has had one semen test done and the count was very low (10million) but there were some "mitigating factors" in his words - he didn't exactly wait the 3 days before providing a sample and missed the first little bit when he did it. He doesn't want to do another SA because he thinks his swimmers are fine given that we did concieve. However, I'm concerned it was just a fluke.
Finally, I tend to ovulate late in my cycle at around CD20/21. I have heard ovulating late can mean poor quality eggs. Is this true?
In our case would you think IVF is worth pursuing? Would we qualify?
Thanks for any advice!
