IVF #1 S/A

I literally just got the call from my clinic about my hubby's sperm numbers from his sample given before my retrieval, so here goes.

Before washing:
Concentration: 85 million (normal = more than 20 million; best = more than 90 million)
Motility: 51% (normal = more than 50%; best = more than 60%)
Morphology: 29% abnormal (normal = less than 70% abnormal)
Forward Progression: 3 (It's a scale from 1 to 4 with 4 being the best and 2.5 being average)

After washing:
Concentration: 17.6 million
Motility: 95%
Morphology: 9% abnormal
Forward Progression: 4 (That's amazing!)

It's not as amazing as some of his others, but the fact that it's IVF and not IUI makes me happy--you really only need one per egg and they're put together in a very small space. So I'd say 15 million sperm to fertilize 8 eggs is pretty good odds. LOL
