Can y'all Say IVF???

That's where we are headed now. Beta was negative.

The RE was willing to do one more IUI, but with the crappy sperm count and motility, and the fact that injectables are 2grand, I said I would feel better going straight to IVF. Apparently, the sperm were bad enough last IUI for him to recommend ICSI. I don't remember exactly what the counts are, but maybe if the sample is better we can veto that decision.

We did not have a sperm issue when we started this, so this puzzles me. Is it the lack of sex we are having because my area is constantly under the microscope? Is it the summer heat? Who knows, but what I do know is we have to do our best to improve it.

He thinks we will do well with IVF, and I hope this is true, I am ready for my miracle...and we can't afford to do IVF more than ONE we have ONE chance...
