Bean had his appointment first yesterday morning. They need to wash the sperm before inserting it for the IUI. Washing it means removing any dead ones and separating the actual swimmers from the seminal fluid. If you insert the fluid part into the uterus it can cause cramping and even for it to collapse. Normally the cervix filters everything out but they bypass that with an IUI.
The SA came out alright, I think. I'm really bad about reading SA numbers because "good" or "bad" doesn't depend on just one number, many things go into it. I don't think these numbers are amazing. But each one is above what the RE likes to see it at. If it is too low then they'll cancel my IUI.
