Hi everyone!

My name is Allison. Here's my story - I am 29 yrs old and my dh is 34. We ttc for 2 years without luck. So far we found out that it's a male factor (low sperm count and motility issue). We will go to a RE after my gyno check me out. My OB/GYN suggested that we try IUI first. Does anyone have success stories with IUI due to male factor?

I've been quite sad as I feel that there's a possibility that we will never have our own child. We both love kids! I found this website by chance last night. I hope this website will provide me the encouragement and support that I need when I travel through this journey.

Hi there Allison - Welcome to the Site and glad you've found us ! I do hope you find the support here that so many of us have already found. You can also have a few laughs along the way ..

Ours is male factor too, but a bit further down the line that you - we went straight into ICSI.

I look forward to seeing you post on the General Forum.

Hi Allison

welcome to the site. We too have male factor (DH has abnormal morphology) and a few mild issues with me aswell. We have also been advised to have IUI are currently on the waiting list.
There is an IUI thread on the general forum where the girls having this treatment hang out.

best wishes

ME + DH 27 - Male + female factor
