We got our SA results back, and the numbers leave a bit to be desired. Here they are, with normal in parentheses.

pH - 9 (7.2-8.1)
Liquefaction - <30 minutes ( <30 minutes)
Viscosity - Normal
Volume - <0.5 (1.5)
Count - 4 (15)
Initial Motility - 66% (>40%)
Progress Motility - 43 (>32%)
Morphology - 28% (>30%)
Other - Large amount of immature germ cells

So pH is high, but from what I understand that sways boy and could have something to do with the lemon water he's been drinking so I'm okay with that. Volume and count are terrible. He's recently had the flu and an upper respiratory infection with a fever and was on two rounds of antibiotics, so that could be affecting his numbers. Of course even if he doesn't have anything "wrong" with him it will still take 3 months for things to get back to where they need to be. Morphology is also low, but not terribly low. The motility looks pretty darn good. I am hoping that because his motility is better than normal the few sperm he does have that are the right shape will be able to get to where they need to be. I don't know what the immature germ cells mean and trying to research it made my brain hurt.

Right now the plan is to keep going with this cycle and DH is going to try and make an appointment with the urologist today. It really depends on what the urologist says for our long term plan. If he thinks we still have a decent chance of conceiving doing what we're doing while he undergoes treatments then we will. If he thinks there's not much point until the numbers get better then I might see about going on Lupron in the interim. If he suggests we will have to do IUI or IVF we will probably just give up, work on me getting better (which likely means a hysterectomy), and start working towards adoption.

I am sending as many good vibes/thoughts/prayers I can muster that your doctor says everything is ok to keep trying what you are doing.

My DH has to do a SA as well but is waiting till after this cycle to do it. We wanted to try one more cycle without medication before any more tests.

I hope the numbers come up and you guys can stay on the track you are on. Did you two abstain from sex (no ejaculation) 3-5 days before his test? I am sorry i hope it is nothing but good news. Sending prayers and warm wishes your way!!<3

Hoping you get good news. My DH also has a minor issue. Very high count, but mostly abnormal sperm. He is seeing a urologist. Hoping you DH gets some good news from the urologist and his counts improve, and that your doc says to continue with your plan.

Thank you, everyone. We did abstain for three days per our instructions. We were able to get an appointment for the first which is MUCH earlier than I expected. I will update everyone after we get back. That is right around our suspected ovulation day, so I'd appreciate some positive energy towards my ovaries so that I O either early or late in case they need to do something that could mess that up.

We had our urologist appointment today, and it went okay. We weren't told to start taking any vitamins or supplements or do anything to improve things which made me kinda upset. I really want to get this show on the road! He has another appointment for the 15th and he's supposed to get another SA done that day. He's supposed to bring it in right before the appointment and the doctor is going to look at the sample before coming to see us. He is also supposed to get blood work done in between now and then. LH, FSH, Testosterone, Estrogen, and something else I can't remember. I didn't even know men had LH and FSH. There was an infertility questionnaire he was supposed to fill out and bring to his next appointment but he just filled it in before we left. There were like 100 questions or something. He was given a physical exam and that went fine, the doctor didn't notice any abnormalities down there. He blood pressure was a bit high though. So I guess we will have to wait and see what happens at the next appointment.

The doctor said that while he sees all the MFI cases in town, he's not an infertility specialist. So while he can help most people depending on the problem we may have to go out of town to see an actual specialist. I hope whatever the problem is he can help us because I don't want to do that.

I understand your frustration. After my husbands SA and visit with the urologist...he didn't recommend anything either and he was diagnosed with a vericose vein. I was upset as well. He goes back to him April. I am hoping to for more guidance from the doc then.

Hoping for the best for you two as well!
