I am a 28 year old female, and my husband and I have been TTC for almost a year. I have had many tests/ultrasounds done, and show signs of PCOS. My hormone levels are improving, though, and my cycles have become closer together recently (last 2 were each 34 days).
My husband had a semen analysis done, and he had a really good count & motility looked good (I don't have the exact numbers, this is just what the doctor told me). His morphology, however was 0. She recommended he make an appt with the urologist, and he has not had that appointment, yet. I've read the various posts and discussions on morphology and understand that it's a controversial issue. He is 29, healthy weight, exercises daily, has never smoked, only drinks occasionally, etc.
My doctor prescribed me Clomid, but I don't really want to start it if the morphology issue wouldn't allow us to conceive anyway. She prescribed it after his SA and after my most recent labs came back. I am assuming she wouldn't have recommended i take it if the 0% morphology would prevent us from conceiving even if i do respond well to Clomid. Thoughts on how much impact this could have? Should I go ahead and try Clomid or wait until he has some further tests?View Thread
