IUI #1 this month.....

9.1 million after wash......84% motility (WAYYYY better than last month).  I find those numbers to be promising.  I'd like the overall count to be higher, but hey, it only takes one.
The white blood cells were back, but there were less this time and they were able to be removed during the wash.  I got the names of two urologists in the area that Grouper can choose from - I want him to go and see what that's all about, and hopefully there's something they can do to improve the quality of the sperm and get rid of those WBCs for good.

IUI #2 is tomorrow morning, same bat time, same bat channel.


  1. Yay Grouper! Those are promising numbers! One of the REs we visited told us that, in regular intercourse, only 2% of sperm make it to the uterus and only 2% of that sperm has a shot at fertilizing the egg. But with IUI, you cut out the first step and 100% of the sperm makes it to the uterus. 2% of 9 million is still lots and lots of spermies with a shot at getting to the egg.

  2. I don't know much about IUIs (yet anyway - I think I'll know more soon), but these numbers sound promising to me too. Hope you get some good news really soon!
