Has your SO taken clomid or similar?

Hi ladies.

I am just wondering if your partner has taken clomid or similar before
starting IUI to restore count and motility etc?
My DB will hopefully start fertility drugs next mth and our nurse said that the
response it usually very good.
We thought ICSI was our only option, but now it is looking very likely we
will pursue IUI, Which i am so happy about!
DB has to respond to the meds 1st though.
Just wondered if anyone has any feedback please? I am very intrested :))

I think I read somewhere it might improve motility where sperm were normal just not very motivated?

Clomid blocks the estrogen receptors in the brain and causes increased production of the pituitary hormones FSH and LH. In the male, this can cause increased testosterone production. The theory, therefore, is that with increased testosterone production, as well as increased FSH and LH, sperm quality should improve. However, the use of clomiphene in the male in well-controlled studies has shown very controversial data. Clomiphene should not be used in place of a thorough evaluation of the male including hormone testing, semen analysis, and tests of sperm function
