amandaleaou:  thank you for your story! My Darling Husband had low morphology too, 3%. We are moving to IUI next month and we plan to do them until it works. We have unlimited IUIs through our insurance but no IVF coverage. I’m so glad to read that IUIs worked for you!

JLBB-brooklyn:  Good luck with your IUI! I think it kind of helped going into it with low expectations because of his morphology — we pretty much went into it with the “as many times as it takes” mentality too. After 3 cycles I started researching adoption with the intention of contacting a few agencies in January & of course we managed to get pregnant the next cycle with our CP. After that we decided to put off looking into adoption until June and to keep going with the IUIs… We had to skip December, but January was the lucky cycle! I hope you have the same (or better!) luck that we had!

Ok maybe you guys can help me understand.  My SO had an SA.  His Morphology was 4% (which I thought I should worry about), but the volume was 2.9ml, sperm count was good 100million per mil, and motility at 80%.  He is going to do another SA in a month or two because they said there were small amounts of WBC and Round Cells in the sample, so after they prescripted an antibiotic they hoped those would go away, 

I think his numbers are good (except the WBC and round cells being there) what are your thoughts?  DR said everything looked good but I know opinions can vary.

bloomingflower:  My husband had very low volume on his SA, 0.6ml, 3% morph and a concentration of 106million per mil with motility at 58%. My RE doesn’t seem concerned at all. They are making us abstain for 7 days prior to timed intercourse/IUI since his concentration is really good, but the volume (liquid of the semen) is so low. The theory is his prostate and other glands may take a while to build up the semen liquid that helps to propel and nourish the sperm on the way to the egg. We will see how it all goes. Like I said, amandaleaou ‘s story gives me hope for our IUI!
