Bad and good news....

The bad news is the test indicates that DH has an insufficient amount of motile sperm.
The good news is there's still a chance nothing is wrong with me....it's hard to be at all glad though because DH is distraught right now. My poor baby


I was SO not prepared for this. I've always thought there is something wrong with me and that he is perfectly fine!





EDIT:

after an inversion...DH would LOVE it if you guys could say you see a line, but I really don't think so I see a SHADOW where the line should be, but in inversion would mean there would be more bright bluish green to see because that is how red shows up in an inversion, and I'm seeing nothing You?

You do? Not just a shadow, but an actual LINE that is red or pink?

It's faint, but it's there. You might want to go ahead and have a SA done though. Check around for prices before you actually have it done. Prices can vary ALOT. My local doctor does them for under $60. Some specialists charge up to $400.

How come everyone can see it but DH and I! I still see nothing However now that the test has dried up and is no longer "readable" I CAN see the faintest of pink, not even sure if it's a line or not...but it's there. DH is still getting a SA, and we hope our insurance covers it.

I am sorry, I don't see a line, but just like with HPT's they have to be blaring for me to see them in pics. Just so you know, my DH has pretty low counts and motility on his SA (8 million/mL and 13% motility.) As far as we found out that was our only problem. If I had not gotten my BFP this cycle he was going to go to a urologist to see if anything could be done to fix it. However we got our BFP with careful timing to give his men time to build up numbers in between BD session. (We used every 48 hours, but some people recommend every 72.)

When we got the SA results DH was pretty upset, but truly if he is the problem sometimes that is easier to deal with than if you have a problem. Anyway, just if he really does have low counts, it is still possible for him to get you pregnant. If a SA confirms that test's results, you can always go to a urologist. Sometimes there are things they can do to increase the counts (occasionally there is scar tissue that can be removed, or abnormal vessels that let the scrotum get to hot that can be repaired.)

Yup, I definitely see a pink line. I know I had insurance before that didn't cover infertility treatments, but it did cover the diagnosis of infertility...and that includes a SA.

I am sorry too but all I see is the indent where the line would be. I think that you should have an SA done because my OB actually told me that just about anything can cause it to come back the way you unexpected. He explained to me that men actually go through what would be considered their "time of the month" when their count and such is lower. And that repeat tests should be done in order to know for sure. Don't count yourself out completely! There are definitely thinks you can do. A low motility pretty much instantly qualifies your for IUI. Good luck!
