New to this!
So in Feb we found out hubbie had 0% morphology. Obv extremely gutting. Everything else fine just morphology. Saw consultant in March and he sent us away with instructions for 3 months. Hubbie to:
* take proxeed for 3 months
* stop using protein shakes
* use bottled water
And he also gave up alcohol
Went back for follow up appointment yesterday. Morphology has improved from 0-1% which is obviously a positive but still not the 4% as issued by WHO. So he has told us to continue to do what had been doing but that we would also do tests towards referral for IVF. Have started that.
My big issue was that he told us that for us to be considered, as well as usual tests, that my FSH has to be below 9. At the blood test I did end last year when we started to enquire about why weren't getting pregnant it was 8.9 !
He has told us if above 9 that would not get funding even if everything else ticks the box! He said he had a woman who got 9 and she was refused so he has appealed!
So is there a way FSH can be kept lower? Doc says not but was just wondering?
Obv would love a natural miracle to happen but would also like to have the chance in other way.
Also have to keep my BMI down. Excercise I know!
And then I worry about the whole process as I'm a teacher and stressed/busy most of the time.
How do you all cope?
Sorry for long message. Thank you if you read this and hope you are all doing ok x
