Sperm freezing????

morning hun nope, no hidden costs. SSR included the actual procedure, embryologist looking at samples, con giving us the verdict and that was that. Sadly for us the SSR was unsuccessful, they didnt find anything, so we did not have to pay freezing costs etc... there will probably be an additional charge is they have to freeze what they find, but your quote was double the price, and Im sure freezing only cost approx. £300 / £600 for thr whole year? so might be worth getting more info from other l...

Sperm freezing????

wow hun. no wonder you are confused, they really should not mess people about like this, it is so frustrating isnt it? I think you should give them a call and ask a few questions, you need answers. can I just ask? if they have offered an SSR would you consider going for it? are there reasosns why you would choose not to? my Dh had an SSR, there are loads of ladies on here who have gone through an SSR with their DH's and gone on to have ICSI and then a BFP!!! I personally think MERC tests are goo...

Sperm freezing????

Hi Aysha I would guess that they want to get at least 2 straws to increase the chances of fidning good healthy swimmers after the thaw. Freeze / thaw can affect the quality of sperm & embryos, when I had my FET cycle, 3 embies were thawed and 2 survived, from reading up, it seems this is quite common and on average, 2 / 3 make it. Have they discussed ICSI for the sperm that survive? Have they said if the sperm that do thaw are healthy and suitable for tx? Are you having MERC tests at the moment?...

Morphoplogy 5% - subfertility vs Kruger normal reading?

Hi I think you will get the best response if you post your question and all of your stats / figures in the sperm scientist thread, the posts in there are read by a `real life` sperm scientist who spends her days looking at samples, and she really knows her stuff - here is the link Sperm Scientist Questions Hope you find it useful

Hi everyone

Hi Welcome to FZ and Good Luck for your first appt, I would suggest writing a list of questions, do this toegther with your DH and take it to your appt, you will be overwhelmed with the amount of info they give you and the questons they ask, it will be easy to forget some things, so they wont mind you taking a list in with you to refer to. best wishes x

Bad result of SSR

Hi Lisa I am sorry that your SSR was unsuccessful, it sounds like a similar situation to ours, my DH is azoo, at his SSR they found nothing, but this was done before we started IVF so we had time to get our heads around it a bit and decide on the donor route before injections and EC, it must have been a real shock for you on top of the actual pressure of EC on the day. I have read of ladies who have had not so good results with initial tests and although they try SSR on EC day some clinics also ...

MALE FACTOR CHATTER

Hi BP I agree its great to share experiences and thoughts, fertility can be a very lonely places sometimes, so I find FZ an amazing place to `chat` to others who understand. In answer to your questions our SSR was done in October (2008), we were told the results the same day and we started IVF in Januray 2009. We had a few months to get our heads around things and we were lukcy to be matched with a donor straight away (we are private patients, we couod be refered to a different clinic which is N...

More bad news - sperm not survived the freeze.

Hi I am sorry you have received bad news, it is really hard for couples to come to terms with this, but as you have an appt coming up, I suggest you write a huge list of questions, do this togther with your DH (as you may well see things from a different angle) and take the list to your appt, make the most of the time you have with the nurse / con. Most clinics offer SSR as a private procedure, we had one done at a private clinic which cost approx. £1,200. We got the results and we spoke with th...

Hi BPositive I am so sorry you had the sad news that you were (kind of) prepared for, sounds like you are a very strong couple and that will get you through this. Your situation is similar to mine and my DH, our SSR was unsuccessful and we are now trying the IVF route with donor sperm. He had an undescended testes op as a child too and they `think` this may be the cause although there are no definate answers, his brother had the same op and he has a 1 year old child now conceived naturally, so t...

Hi Blossom We are hopefully going to blasts next time, Mr A talked about it but he said only if we get lots of eggs and a good fert rate. It was not discussed during our first IVF or FET as I think it is more an option to icrease chances if it doesn't happen straight away, but Im sure they would advise you, might be worth giving them a call or asking at your next appt personally Im scared of going to blasts, really worried they wont make it and we will have nothing to transfer, but thats just me...

Is it true you lose NHS funding if you go private first

Hi Lou I know all PCT's differ but mine say they will not fund tx for any couple who have previously had 2 or more private cycles. Some ladies have one private go whilst waiting to climb the NHS wiating list hope this helps x
