I remember getting my husbands SA results and feeling so lost and confused . My husband even left work in tears because we were so overwhelmed . But like PP have said there are options ! First try with IVF and I’m pregnant now x 2 ! I can’t really comment on the results because his seem to be written different , we had low morphology and count and ICSI did amazing things for us .

omglauren :  We had a bad first SA and the second was better and by the third it wasn’t normal but it wasn’t as dire as the first (it was ok enough to try IUI before jumping to IVF). We don’t know why the first one was soooooo awful and never figured out why. Go through all the steps and keep hope. It was a long journey for us (we had other issues) but I’m almost 10 weeks pregnant.

When do you get to speak with a doctor?

omglauren :  Am I the only one that thinks your results look totally normal? Yours is greater than 2 million when the WHO says normal is over 1.5 million. And you said those last few wouldn’t be performed if he was over 2 mil. Am I missing something? 

Also – be careful of Darling Husband checking his results on his work access – it’s actually illegal and he can likely lose his job. Just be careful!

To quote what Javier said before

“Here’s what the WHO defines as normal:

  • Volume: 1.5 ml or more” = milliliters, not the count which is counted in millions.

A normal count is above 40 million according to my DH’s SA results.

Hopefully you’ll get some answers soon. Fingers crossed for you!

omglauren :  I think it’s crazy that he has to wait for his results for 3 weeks! The clinic/hospital doesn’t have a portal where these things are uploaded? if they provided the information in a timely manner, he wouldn’t have to “illegally” peek at his results. The waiting is the worst part!!

 

niki1983 :  glad you clarified this

I’ve been listening to Matt and Doree’s Eggcelent Adventure podcast and Matt has low sperm count.  Might be worth listening to get advice.  They are doing IVF.
