  • Thank you everyone

    I actually TTC a few years ago with DS. I then tried for a year with my boyfriend before going to IVF. The reason we went to IVF was because with all my testing to see why I wasn't conceiving we also did a sperm analysis on him and found that while his count was good, there was a fairly high percentage of his sperm that had poor morphology, or shape. The fertility specialist that did the SA attributes that to the fact that my bf is a smoker and has been for a long time. It was recommended that I either try IUIs with injectibles or move right to IVF. Because the odds of success were much higher with IVF and I'm already 39 the RE that I went to and I both agreed that IVF with ICSI (a good quality sperm is selected and then injected right into the egg) was the way to go.
