I just wanted to reintroduce myself!

I posted here a loong time ago, right after we got the results from my DH's SA, but I have been MIA because we took a break for a while.

Dh has had 2 SA's, both of which were pretty much the same. His count was 1 million, he has a liquefaction defect, and some morphology issues.

We just got some bloodwork results back. They tested for Y Chromosome Microdeletion and Cystic Fibrosis, both of which were negative. Which is good, but it just means we still don't know why his count is so low. We are supposed to make an appointment with the RE in the next couple of weeks, and then I guess we will see what they say. What they had said before is that if all the tests were normal, we would need to go right to IVF with ICSI, so I expect them to say the same. I really don't know what we will do for sure, because I know that is going to be reeeeaaally expensive.

Anyway, thanks for reading!

Hi Wallflower!
I'm new to this site...I posted my very long story a couple weeks ago. Did your husband see a urologist? Is that who gave him the S/A? Was he checked for a vericocele? My hubby and I are in a similar situation...we were told last year, by a fertility clinic that IVF was our only chance of getting pregnant... which we will do, as a last option but we want to figure out why his numbers are so bad...we took a break but are back to "trying" again. After a ton of googlling sp? It seems that vitamins may help your hubby's numbers improve. My hubs is on a cocktail of them, which he started last week.

There is a site that I have been going to that provides some more info on this subject....fertilichat, go to the thread that says male infertility....there is a guy Rich who replies to the posts with a specific answer, if you give him your hubby's S/A numbers. He seems knowledgeable but I don't know who he is...Hope some of this helped.

Hello!

No, we haven't been to a urologist or been checked for a varicocele yet. That may be what the RE tells us to do next. He is taking some vitamins, a multivitamin and L-Arginine, but I know there are a lot more he could be taking!

I've never heard of that site, I will have to check it out! Thanks!
