My doctor has mentioned a couple of times (3 months ago and when I was at my 3 month follow up appt) doing a semen analysis just to make certain his stuff's working alright.

Well DH and I were talking about it a couple of nights ago and he's open to it (though he jokes that he only will do it if he gets to "jerk off" into a dixie cup. *sighs and rolls eyes*) But he seriously was wanting to know what all was involved and what he could expect and just any information regarding SA's.

Did any of your SO's discuss any of it with you?

Sam had to do an SA and then repeat the process for our IUI. They told me I could go with him to .. ummm...help but I thought that was wayy too awkward! So I made him go alone!

he said he sat in the waiting room for about 5 mins and they called him back and gave him the sterile cup and then he went into a room which he said was as manly as it could be at an RE's office. It had a big leather couch and a couple of chairs, but he said he didn't sit on them because he didnt know WHAT had been going on in there! ...anyway he said there was quite the selection of porn, but if he could advise anyone - he would tell them to bring their own because the selection was from the sale aisle at the local adult emporium! He said his choices came down to old ladies or really "bushy" ladies! (It may be awkward, but he took his own for the IUI and the process did not take him NEARLY as long..he just kept it inside his hoodie so no one could see it)...then he was just to set the cup in this little turn around deal (like you put your pee in at the dr office) and he opened the door and they offered to let him go out the back door but he said no he would just go the way he came in because everyone knew why he was there anyway! :B

he said it wasn't bad and it was TOTALLY worth it to know that he is "the king of sperm" as dubbed by our RE. It took a lot of stress off us knowing the problem was easily fixable with just some clomid and an hcG injection!


hope this helps annaka!!!

I had my DH do a SA for me because we had been married for over a year and I had not gotten pregnant. I knew I could because I have a DD and had a MC few years back. He was a little apprehensive but eventually did it. And then funny thing was....the day before we got the result we found out I was pregnant. But it is a good thing when they want to know just as much as you do.

Luckily DH was able to do it at home and run to the hospital. He had to have it to them within 20 minutes of Eing.

My dh had his done also, it took some talking on my part though he did not want to at first, the place we had ours done at let us do it at home and bring in the sample, they gave us a cup and a special condom so we had options of how to obtain the sample and then we had to have it to them within 20 minutes,, he had to go to work so you should have seen me running through the hospital parking lot with my little brown bag.. it was not a bad experience for us, dh said if he had to do it in that room it just wasn't possible he's not a porn kinda guy

thanks for the stories! DH is disappointed that he won't get to 'do it' in a dixie cup. But he says he definitely wants to do it at the office. he's just weird. haha

Thanks again everyone!
