So, back from the second RE. The plan is next cycle to do Clomid and IUI. I'll call on CD 1 to do a CD 3 baseline. CD 1 should be in the next couple of days.
So, how did it go? I just don't know. He reviewed the old RE's labwork and said that DH's SA was low. We were NEVER told this. In fact, we were told his SA was great. Here's the numbers:
Total Number of Sperm: 36.6 Million
Total Motile Sperm: 16.81 Million
From what I'm reading and what were were told, 36.9 Million should be 40 Million and 16.81 Million, should be 20 Mill. When we asked the RE why the old one said these numbers were good, he said oh they are for IVF and IUI, but not for TI. So, we are very upset with the other RE. First I find out I do have some fertility coverage through the new office and then that DH had a problem as well. This has been wasted time and money on my part with the acu and everything. Hell, maybe if we didn't have the pserm issues I could have gotten a BFP with acu?
Of course, the new guy doesn't have much hope in the IUI and Clomid. He's doing it because my insurance will cover it, we haven't tried it yet, and we have no money right now for IVF. He did tell us he thinks IVF is our best option. He pulled the SART report to show us data on it, so I appreciated that bit.
Here's the part where I'm not sure about with this guy. He said the way they do it is after a +OPK you go in the next day for the IUI. I said that I've been known to ovulate the same day as IUI or very next day and he pretty much said it was impossible, that O is always 36 hours after surge. He said when they do IVF and Injectibles it's how they time the trigger to the IUI, trigger is always 36 hours before O, that it's how it happens. I'm very confused.... Why the temp rise the next day then? I'm worried we might miss the timing.
Another weird thing that happened in the visit is while waiting someone was calling DH"s name. We turn and it's his childhood friend. DH is like what are you doing here? His friend is like, same as you. Except, they've been successful, his wife got a BFP on their first Clomid/IUI cycle and she was six weeks along and there to double check everything. I am a bit jealous, but happy for them and wish them success. It's a small world. They play Xbox together and had we not run into them never would have known, since these issues are not really talked about. Kinda sad, really.
So, I guess there's a plan, but I dunno how to feel about it. DH is very upset. We were gonna do the adoption seminar, but just feel too down to go, so another night. They are having it two other times this month.
