My husband and I ttc for 3 years. My husband has low and poor sperm motility (20%). All my tests were found very good. We did 2 IUI, both unsuccessful. Anyone got pregnant with such low motility ? Thanks.

Is his post thaw motility 20%? The freezing and thawing process kills or alters the morphology of the sperm. 20 - 40% is an expected range - with 40% being awesome and 20% being possible

My husband had low count (13.5m), low motility (30%) and low morphology (3% on strict test where 15% is normal). All my tests were normal. We tried to concieve for almost 3 years naturally without success and then did IVF with ICSI (IVF with sperm injected into eggs) which worked first time and I'm now 24 weeks. Good luck ttc.

Thanks for the replies. Lena, no, it's not after thawing. Justine, since my husband has normal count, our doctor suggests to try IUI at least 8-9 times.
