My Husband had a vasectomy reversal 18 months ago. We have been TTC for 16 months now with one miscarriage (5 weeks) 8 months into TTC. He has very low morphology 1%. We are not financially ready for IVF, how long should we keep trying before we bite the bullet and go to a fertility specialist?
My husband thinks we need to give it more time, I think we are just wasting time, but I know we don't exactly have the funds.
My husband takes a large cocktail of sperm healthy supplements.
P.S. my husband is a smoker, he tried to quit once (it was a miserable experience for both of us) and failed.View Thread
His volume is 3.8 ml, 66% motility and total motile sperm is 38. I believe his smoking is a huge factor in our issues, but he still can't kick the habit. Do you think it would be a waist of time and money to see a fertility specialist if he is still smoking? Thanks for taking the time to respond.View Thread
