How far along in your TTC path did you find out your SO had a sperm count issue? Was it your idea to get him tested or did your doctor/RE suggest it for you?

When we were TTC #1, we tried for about 5 months and I actually got one of those at-home male fertility tests. It was very hard to read and from what we could see it looked like it was a little low but we were't sure if we had done it right...it was pretty much a waste of $$. I went my OB/GYN shortly after that and she ordered some bloodwork for me and a SA for DH. He was going to do the SA as soon as AF showed...well AF never showed because I was pregnant ! I will always be curious what the results would have been at that time. We'll never know if DH's counts have gone down since then b/c of his varicocele or if they were always super low and we just got lucky!

When TTC #2, I read the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility and it says to get your DH tested after only 4-6 cycles of well-timed BDing confirmed by charting. I had a bad gut feeling very early on in TTC that something was really wrong and this would be a loooong journey. DH and I both agreed it was something we should get done. He did the SA after 6 cycles of no luck. I'm glad we did it as soon as we did, b/c now we know what is going on and can work toward possible solutions.

Well we started trying in Sept and found out about DH in February. My GYn suggested we get him tested....not sure why though because I only went to see her because my periods were irregular?!
