I was wondering if you were able to give me some guideance.
My DH (35) and I (26) have a 3year old whom we conceived naturally. DH regretably had a vasectomy 2yrs ago but we would really love another child together.
We commenced our 1st ivf/icsi cycle 12mths ago - down reg with pill and 150 gonal f however was cancelled as i only produced 4 mature sized follies. 2nd cycle was down reg no pill and 300 gonal f where i produced only 4 mature sized follies so we decided to go to epu - got 4 eggs but only only 1 fertilised but abnormaly.
Our FS explained that DH prior use of steriods due to his body building career had taken a toll on his sperm and prescribed his 3x weekly injections of pregnyl to help improve. I had an AMH test which came back a very poor 2.5. I was prescribed DHEA and have been on it for 3months.
After our 2nd failed cycle i was diagnosed with graves disease and now apparently hashimotos which i have not had to take medication for (neo mercazole) for the last 6 weeks yet i still suffer the symptoms of vague memory and heart palpitations.
To cut a long story short our FS changed our 3rd cycle to an atagonist with 450 gonal f no pill etc. I just had my day 9 scan (friday 22nd) and have 4 follies 16, 12, 9, 9 - the nurse has keeped me on the meds to rescan on monday the 25th but at this stage looks like i'll only have the one or maybe 2 follies at a decent size. I feel like i would have to go to epu just to see if the pregnyl has helped to improve DH sperm to get a clearer picture of where we stand.
My questions is - what do you think our chances for this cycle are? and if this fails/gets cancelled is there any other protocols/ treatments/ medications i or dh can do to increase our results. Thanks for your time.
