Failed IUI last month with Husband Motility issues
BabyParks posted:
I had the IUI last month with hubby sperm count of 5.02 million for the IUI. I am not pregnant this month and plan to have surgery August 25th on my part. Will see if husbands varicocele repair will increase chances any! Is there any way to know if it will increase our chances or not and would IUI be just as sufficient as having the surgery. IUI only cost us 300 bucks each time so I am thinking a couple more tries of that may be worth it instead of him having a surgery that could cause more damage I am afraid? Any thoughts would be great on this surgery and if they can actually mess up or cause more damage ect. Thanks!

I am sorry to hear that your IUI didn't work out. I don't have much advice for you about your DH's surgery. My DH just has an extremely low count with no known cause. What surgery are you having?

Also, you might want to check out the "Infertility Treatment Community" message boards. There are a ton of supportive ladies over there willing to answer any questions. Right now there are many under going IUI and several of us doing IVF.

Best of Luck!

Sorry that the first IUI was not successful. :(

Hang in there and it would be worth giving a couple a try. The varicocele repair can help improve his sperm parameters so it is a good option to explore but understand that if you can get IUI to work it would be way easier and worth the try.
