My husband and I have been TTC (#1) for 12 months. I have hypothyroidism (not yet stable) and just below average AMH (13.5).
My husband has had some issues with sperm quality, and we have had 5 sperm analysis done in the last 6 months. His rapid progress progressive sperm has ranged between 5 - 25% (more often being on the lower end of that range). Normal Morphology has ranged between 5% and 29%
Sperm concentration has always been fine (40 million/mL on average).
Last Thursday our Fertility Specialist told us that my husband has 25% sperm antibodies, and recommended sperm washing and IVF/IUI.
Is there any other type of treatment, apart from sperm washing, that might help with reducing antibodies? (like immune suppressors?)
I don't want to waste years trying to get pregnant naturally, but I also don't want to do IVF if there is some other treatment we can try first. Is IVF my best option?
Thank you for any information you can give me.
