Dr Owen : Hello
Dr Owen : What are you doing for improving your sperm count?
Dr Owen : And, have your wife been checked 100% for any problems?
Customer:

We did everything they told us pap smear for her semen analysis for me then they recomended sperm I prove

Dr Owen : So you have a low sperm count?
Dr Owen : and you have been trying for 7 years?
Dr Owen : PAP smear not a test for fertility
Dr Owen : Has she had her thyroid checked?
Dr Owen : Has she had her Fallopian tubes checked?
Dr Owen : Well if your wife has not had those tests done that should be done
Customer:

Yes fallopian tubes was checked and they said it was blocked its a pity I cant remember all the staff they gave us but yes

Dr Owen : okay
Dr Owen : Well since you have a low sperm count and she has blocked tubes then the only way to get pregnant for her is to have IVF -Invitro Fertilzaton
Dr Owen : Where they take your sperm, and they take her eggs and they fertilize the eggs in the lab - then when the egg/ sperm get to an embryo stage, the embryo is then implanted into her uterus
Dr Owen : Honestly there is NOTHING you or her can do on your own - there are no medications to help
Dr Owen : So honestly IVF is the only way to get pregnant.
Dr Owen : I hope this helps, I am just trying to be 100% honest here
Dr Owen : I wish you and your wife well
Dr Owen : Please click on EXCELLENT for helping you
Dr Owen : Thank yo
Dr Owen : you
Customer:

Not sure about thyroid if not what can I do for that to be checked

Dr Owen : The thyroid is checked with a TSH thyroid blood test - and if a problem, then medication for the thyroid is given
Dr Owen : I hope this helps
Dr Owen : Please click on EXCELLENT for helping you
Dr Owen : Thank you
Dr Owen : And, I strongly suggest proceeding with IVF if you both want to have a baby
Dr Owen : I wish you well
Dr Owen : Please click on EXCELLENT
Dr Owen : Thank you
Customer:

So how much it costs the ivf

Dr Owen : That differs all over the world -
Dr Owen : I'm here as a doctor to help with the medical part of this - we usually do not get involved in costs -
Dr Owen : But You need to proceed with IVF IF you want a baby - there really is no other way
Dr Owen : Also, if you have insurance - insurance might cover some or all of the IVF
Dr Owen : Please click on EXCELLENT for helping you - that is the only way we get credit for helping you and for our time
Dr Owen : Thank you
