DH had a varicocelectomy in November after a failed IVF round. We just had our follow up SA and it can back at 0. I requested records from our clinic from our past cycles, and it was 7 million in Feb 2009, 3 million in October 2009, 2.2 million in August of 2012, and now 0. Is a sharp decline common, and does it generally mean something else is going on? The urologist told us the varicocele was as bad as they get and while it may not eliminate our need for IVF, it should certainly help some parameters. This was the last thing we were expecting. I wish we had been more on top of the decline, as our clinic didn't really tell us numbers since we were doing ICSI. Wish so badly we would have frozen some a while back. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
DH: 32, Male Factor
4 Failed IUI
IVF #1 - BFN
FET #1 - BFP!!! DD born Sept 2010
IVF #2 - Chemical
Next: Work on improving DH and my fertility while saving up for next round. Why does something that we want so badly have to also be so expensive?
