Our expert says:
The presence of ecoli is not unusual and is often due to contamination rather than actual infection. It is unlikely that the infection is the sole reason for the failure in terms of IVF / ICSI. Also it is unlikely that it is responsible for the miscarriage you experienced lately.
My advise is that you pursue the fertility option and that the antibiotics, based on a sensitivity analysis, should be used at the time of the ooctye retrieval process and when the sperm collection is being done. We have been adopting this method of treatment for all our patients, (ie prescribing antibiotics on a routine basis at the time of oocyte retrieval) for many years now, and have not had any major problems with infections to date.
It is rather difficult for me to recommend that you try on your own as I do not have all the facts available to me, in particular, the sperm results - and therefore cannot make an educated decision on this.
