Hi Sairle - welcome! I bet you are excited with the wedding coming up. You certainly have plenty to keep you distracted until May
KMVW - So sorry to hear about your DH's cancer. It must be extremely draining on the both of you, sounds like you have had quite a medical journey thus far.
As far as the supps go. You know what, if a nautropath had of recommened all that stuff we probably wouldn't have given it a second thought. I'm sure nautropaths help with some infertile couples but not to the extent when they require IVF. And I guess we went into it a little niave, thinking everything the FS says we have to do. But my god, I am glad we followed his lead on this one.
We did two samples before commencing IVF so it's not like DH was having a bad/low day with his swimmers. I hear this can happen if a man has the flu or some other temporary illness. So I really have no other explanation of how his count went from zero to 100,000. I believe whole-heartedly the supps worked.
You never know, ask your DH if he would take them and see what he says. Some guys feel incredibly guilty when they have MFI even though it is in no way their fault. Maybe taking the supps would make him feel like more part of the process. I know it was incredibly hard for my DH watching me have injections and take meds *thinking* all along that it was because of him. Now that my PCOS is having a negative affect on our fertility, he feels alot better about the situation. In some ways that's easier dealing with less emotional baggage, but medically it makes things even more challenging for us.
