The first thing I ALWAYS look for is Morphology...which per the WHO should be over 5% and it looks really dang good for you guys at 13%!

My DH's is always around 0-1%
Even concentration - while it's much lower than the "average" of >20 it is at 13 - which to me is a heckofalotbetter than DH's which is like 4 or 5...

I'd say that's a pretty good SA! Not sure if I'd say "great" but compared to my own husband's it is! lol.

Good luck!!

from what I can read, it looks okay-not fabulous, but decent. Hopefully the doc can give you a more definite answer. If it's an improvement from his last SA, that has to be good news

Some of the stats look really good and some are borderline, but it all seems good enough to get you knocked up! I hope they continue to improve!!

And if you don't mind me asking, how many days did he abstain before his test? I know that your swimmers aren't as great if you have more than 4-6 days. That's what I was told.

I think it looks "good". What he lost in concentration, he made up for in volume. Morphology and forward progress look good.

I'd also like to know how long he abstained before producing sample. My RE say no more than 2 days abstinence unless you've already had documented low count issues.

Also, what supplements is he on? (multi, selenium, D, C, E, folic acid, CoQ10)

what's the plan now? TI, IUI, IVF?

You tell DH I give his results a thumbs up! I think your RE would be ok with those results and would be good with proceeding with IUI. I am glad they are better then in 2009. GNC Fertility Blend is what my DH as been on a for a year and all his numbers improved. It can't hurt to get him on those if he isn't already on something.

I agree with the other ladies.
I would like those results
I think IUI would be a good option for you.
How hydrated was he?
I also would like to know how long he abstained and what he has been taking and for how long.
Also the thing is SAs can show different so if some is borderline it may not show that next time y/k?

My husband took the GNC vitamin packs too. I believe he was on the Performance and Vitality blend because it had so many of the same things the fertility blend had. His counts skyrocketed from one test to my IUI.

I think it looks ok. Better than what we have to work with as well :/

My DH has been on fertilaid, count boost, motility boost, fertile detox and B-complex for 3 months now. Feb 19th, count was 1.7 mil...hoping for better results with 3 months on the meds.

I would be ok with those results!

Sorry for not replying ladies, it's been a beyond hectic week at work!
DH abstained for 3 days before the test (he was told no restrictions) so I am feeling pretty happy with these results.
We go for our "what next" consult in TWO days (Saturday) so I am getting anxious wondering what's going to happen!!!!
