Bacterial infection, had failed IUI's, IVF miscarriage, want to know whether bacterial infection causes low morphology. Advice?

Hi I am a 27yr old women who recently discovered a bacterial infection that my OB doctor seems to think has been my cause of infertility for the past 5+ years, my husband was also dignosed and treated, although they didn y discovery what type of bacterial it was. We have been through 2 failed IUI s, my IVF miscarriage at 8wks and one FET (chemical pregnacy) through a fertility specialist and also been misdignosed with tubal issues later finding everything to be opened and health per a LAP surgery. Would this bacterial infection cause low morphology in my husband and impair fertilization? now that we have been treated should be get pregnant on our own without any medical treatment?

Dear Mrs
There is no doubt that bacterial infection can result in infertility. It would be desirable to know what type of infection you have. In any case it could be treated not only using antibiotics but also immunostimulants, phytotherapy and special diet. If not the probability of unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant with the help of modern technologies (IVF, IUI, ICSI) is very high because embryo needs almost sterile conditions in oder to develop properly. Infection has to be verified. This infection really could effect low fertility of your husband. However sometimes patients can get pregnant after abrogating of treatment and there were such cases in my practice.
Yours sincerely
