    I am not from Toronto, but also wanted to wish you luck. I know how frustrating and slow the process can be. T&P!

    DH and I had our follow up appointment with the fertility specialist. There weren't really any surprises.

    I have low estrogen and progesterone as a result I have low egg quality. DH has poor motility and mobility.

    Also I found out last week that DH and I both have europlasma (SP) it's transmitted sexually which is how we both have it. Its a disease that causes early miscarriages and premature labor. So we are both on an antibiotic to get rid of it. So once we are done the antibiotic I have to go back in and get another culture done to make sure its gone.

    In the mean time DH has to give another sample and they are going to do a swim up test so test the swimming ability of the good sperm before we progress to the IUI. If the swim up test has good results then on CD 1 in January I will start my IUI cycle!!

    If the swim test yields bad sperm then we are done. Unfortunately IVF financially isn't for us.

    I also received the costs of everything.
    The swim up test is $200.00 which is a one time test
    The monitoring by ultra sound and blood work and a few other minor clinical admins stuff is $475.00 a cycle
    Sperm wash regardless of how many in a cycle is $300.00
    I am almost certain that the medication will be covered by DH drug plan.
