Hi guys! I have a question. I haven't been here in a long time and most of you probably don't remember me.

We've been TTC for 7years. We gave up for a little while, started up again, got real serious, took a break, got real serious again..you know how it goes.

So we finally got hubs tested and he has a very low count apparently. They said that they couldn't tell anything about his motility because there count was low? I don't understand that. Why can't they tell what the quality is like even though there aren't as many as there should be?

We're being referred to a fertility doctor but in all honesty, I am ready to go the adoption route.

Hmmm, the doctor's explanation doesn't really make sense. You might want to ask this question over on the Male Factor Infertility board...those girls will have more info on this!

If this helps... If you do IUI they wash the sperm pulling out only the good ones... Which can give you a better chance.. You should really see what your options are...Sorry to say this but the fact that you had a m/c is a sign that you got pregnant soooo i would see what options are....lots of luck!

Well getting pregnant once in 7 years, there's a problem somewhere tbh.

And I already looked in all my options and the odds are not good. I don't think I could spend thousands for something that has a 10-50% chance. I don't think I can take another 2WW and get my period. I already have "my" child. We've talked about this a long length. Does that mean we will stop trying naturally? No, but I'd rather spend 10K on adoption than IVF.

When the results are low like that, they don't always test everything else because it doesn't really make a difference kwim?

My DH's first 2 SA's were like that, all the results said were "too low to count". There are some vitamins you can have him try, but keep in mind it takes 92 days for new sperm to form... You might want to check out this thread...

My hubby had a very low count both times he was tested, his first was like 1.9 million and second was 4 million............they did test his motility and it was borderline but they told us that with such a low count that didnt really matter. We were told ivf with icsi was our only option, 6 weeks later we got a BFP on our own, she's now a beautiful healthy 9 month old, when she was 12 weeks old and while exclusively bfeeding we got another BFP all on our own and we're expecting again in 11 weeks time! Hubbys count was so low we had a better chance of winning the lottery than getting pg on our own but we're gona have 2 in the space of a year, dont give up, male fertility can change.

good luck

xx

I'll read that link later. His count was lower than that. It was 59k.

We'll get him restested anyways when we go see the dr but someone else i know, her husband had even lower than mine but they told her about motility so I didn't get it.

I'm asking for the results to get mailed to me.

Definitely have it rechecked. My doctor actually told my DH that being sleep deprived and stressed can add to a lower count. He said that men also go through "a time of the month" just like women when it's lower than normal. Hope the next count is a lot better!
