    Is your age a factor? By that, I mean, if you are in your late thirties, doing ICSI sooner rather later would be more sensible, but if you're only 30, then you have time to try naturally.

    We were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. DS was the result of ICSI stim cycle #3. We stopped using any contraception when DS was 9 months old - I figure we can try for a year before using our frostie. But then again, I'm only 31. I would like at least one sibling for DS, and for them to be close in age, ideally.

    IVF is nothing. Repeated IVF is hard. I'd try for 1 cycle and use all the embryos it makes then reevaluate. I felt my first Ivf cycle was easy and I fell first transfer (DD). Second transfer easy but not fun anymore (BFN). Third time was a full stim cycle and I was over it but got a BFP. I know I've been lucky and not had that many cycles compared to some people. A woman at my work is older and done 27 cycles in total over 7 years, she really wanted a baby (she is pregnant now).

    You're not getting younger, give it a go for 1 cycle then see how you go. Don't write it off as too hard when you haven't even tried.

    well we have had another sperm test done and it has gone from 1m to 7m. The changes we made were menavit, Coq 10, reduction of coffee/coke.

    The dr said it is still pretty low and I mentioned how my brother in law has low sperm count and she said it could be genetic (carriers of cystic fibrosis have a lower sperm production or something). OH has not had this test done will get it done tomorrow and then 3 weeks for the result.

    We have decided to try naturally till the end of the year and if no success then go for IVF.

    Honestly I wouldn't wait. I would start making appointments now. Some of the popular FS are now taking bookings for Dec. I would start by asking on here which FS is the best in your city, then make an appointment. It can take a while to get things started, so have a plan in place ready.

    I thnk it depends on the individual. When we found out that IVF was the only way that we could have a child it was an easy decision for us - my hubbie has severe MFI and we had about 5% chance of it happening naturally. I am currently pregnant but we had to do 3 stim cycles before it worked. I am not a high egg producer and mixed in wtih MFI made us a harder case for the FS. Best of luck for whateevr you decide.

    What is the morph % on your hubby? 7m count is quite low but if morphology is on your side waiting may be an option

    I am currently seeing a FS specialist Dr Iris Wang who is IVF Australia, she was the gyny I choose who could fit me in back in November last year.

    We are waiting to some results re OH if he is a carrier of Cystic Fibrosis (as that could be the reason for low sperm count). Once we have an answer and will take it from there but at the moment I am happy with waiting just in case we get another miracle baby.

    The Dr said it is all pretty low so best option would be ICAIS but have seen there are a couple of clinics such as westmead which non profit hence cheaper may look into that also.
