Well, DH had his 3 month post-op varicocele repair SA today. Things have improved, still not normal yet but much better
In June his results were:
3.2 million/ml with 36% motility, Grade 2 speed of motility and 11.2 million total sperm.
Today his results were:
12.8 million/ml with 50% motility, Grade 3 speed of motility and 48.6 million total sperm.
Anyway, DH's doctor was pleased with the results and hopes things continue to improve. It's been 3 months since the surgery and sometimes it takes 6-12 months to see the full effects of the surgery. At any rate, we are IUI candidates now and that wasn't really an option before
On the down side, we just found out today that my FSH is elevated (12.5)....which is weird since I have regular cycles and I'm only 26. I had more blood drawn today to look into it further. My doctor thinks it may be a fluke b/c it doesn't fit my overall picture (ovulate regularly, have had ultrasounds that show lots of follicles, etc.)
sounds like great improvements for DH! my DH had the same surgery and now his swimmers are within the norm.
fingers crossed that the pH was just a fluke!
thank you bonnie (cavewoman) for my beautiful siggy!
