girls- had first IUI Saturday morning…this was supposed to be a failed cycle, but SURPRISE I had 5 good follies. RE would not let me do trigger (due to high risk of 5), but i DID ovulate on my own. whoo hoo!!!
at the office, he commented that DH’s swimmer count was really low. not sure if this is from the fact that we had only a 15 hr window of abstaining???
also, he wanted to know what my latest E2 was…I have been asking his Nurse Practitioner for an E2 draw for months, but her response was “we’re overriding all of that”. i KNEW this would come into play! So, when is a typical E2 draw? Is it done with a CD3 FSH? i told him from now on, I will only talk to him or his office nurse. NP is out.
lastly, i ordered some Maca Magic for DH to increase count. Also taking Vitamin C, E, Fish Oil, Carnitine, Grape Seed extract, and eating raw sunflower seeds. Anything else to do for him? RE said that if formal SA shows <5M count, he will refer us straight to ICSI. don’t want to go there… thanks-a-
