TTC w/vericocele

My husband and I have been ttc since March 2007. He was recently diagnosed with vericocele. His s/a came back with results of:

Volume: 1.7 ml
Count:  2.7 mill
Motility:  40%
Normal Morphs:  80%

Question 1: Any chance of us conceiving by ourselves naturally?
Question 2: Can we do IUI or do we have to progress to IVF?
Question 3: Is there any med that he can take to help increase his count. It appears that the sperm he DOES have (although not much) is in good quality.

Thank you.

What don't you put your dh on a strict diet. There are many types of foods that can increase sperm. There are also many vitimans. I have my dh on Flaxseed, B Complex, C & E and Saw Palmetto. His urogolist said that these are all great.  

I would look this up on the internet and see what you can find. After that make sure your dh starts popping those pills!!

Good luck!!!
