Hi Penny,

Welcome to the board.

sorry but I do not have any info in this one. I would def contact the clinic though as you can virtually bet your bottom dollar that you will not be the first couple with the same problem/dilema.

Hope you get some answers to put your mind at rest

Hi Penny and welcome to FZ 8)
I'm on my first cycle so can't give you advice I'm afraid, what I do know is your chances are increased on an assisted cycle - with down regging and then stimms.
Call your clinic and ask for an appointment with the consultant to discuss your concerns.
Very best of luck to you and DH that you get that BFP this time xxx

Hello Penny.

Welcome to FZ! :))
My DH has antibodies too but due to a vasectomy reversal.
Do you have any details of his full sperm count? I think it really depends on the amount of antibodies and the overall count ie morphology and motility etc that can determine whether IUI has a real chance of success.
Maybe you could contact you clinic and discuss this, and your options at this point before you use up your last go.
Whatever you decide I wish you lots of luck and please dont hesitate to ask any more questions you might have.

Penny,

Even with 100% antibodies IVF with ICSI is still an option. Of course there is also Donor IUI. These are things you need to talk about alot and digest. Feel free to ask on either subject as my DH and I have done both.

Dont get despondent. There are always options.
Keep yer chin up hun.
