I don't have any experience to weigh in on this with. But just wanted to say that we probably have the exact same fertility issue as you. My husband doesn't have CF but is a carrier for CF which has caused his CBAVD which is an obstructive azoospermia. We are doing our first IVF starting in a couple weeks. DH has just been on men's multivitamins for the last few months and we are hoping that his sperm quality is good when they extract them, we will find out then I guess! Do you mind me asking what happened with your first IVF?
