Hi Chez, I don't have any experience of low sperm motility, but have attempted IUI and had a successful IVF cycle. I was under the impression that they used the same method to select sperm for IUI as IVF and so would have thought it would have been a good cheaper option for you to try? Might be wrong though, but worth asking. If NHS won't offer you the treatment for free you could tell them you want to go down the private route and they shouldn't have reason to refuse. Have you had tests too? x

Thanks for replying loobylou. I did wonder if they selected good sperm with the IUI. Thanks for that info. I will ask this on thursday (have made a llist of questions!).
I have had my bloods tested which have shown that I am ovulating, but no doubt they will want to do scans and a laparsocopy like they did last time round. We'll see what the plan is!!
Thanks again x

No problem at all-thinking out loud, is it also worth asking if you could have some of his sperm frozen now (I'd assume they would select the best before freezing, not sure)? Just In case it does take some time to go through tests etc/save for treatment? x
