    Do we have a chance?

    My husband and I have been ttc for almost 3 years. About a year ago we decided to finally visit a fertility clinic, where he was diagnosed with vericoceles and also low count/motility. We were told IVF is our ONLY option, but who can afford that??? Sooo, I'm just wondering if anyone else has been in this same situation and were able to conceive naturally and what steps you took. He recently (2 months now) started taking FertilAid supplements, hoping this helps improve things. His most recent semen analysis was in May (2013) and his test results were as follows (in case a Doctor sees this and cares to comment)

    Volume 1.6mL
    Progression 1
    Sperm Agglutination - Slight
    Viscosity - Moderate
    Round Cells 1
    Viability 40
    WBC 0
    Morphology 1
    Sperm Concentration 4
    Total Motile-Sperm 1.6
    Total Sperm Count Average 6.4
    Motility Average 25

    Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read/respond!

    I was conceived that way, my dad had a low count, so him and my mom both took fertility meds and they had me and 5 years later they had my sister. So I guess there is a chance for y'all.
