Hi,

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a year now. I have had blood work for everything, and 2 ultra sounds. I have been testing with OPK's for the past year and monitoring temps, and everything has been normal. The doctor then said we need to have my husband tested, so we did. He had two SA's done and both were abnormal, so they have us scheduled to see a Urologist tomorrow. It seems like his Motility is one of the main factors. I have included both of the analysis below, does anyone know what these mean and how bad this is? and can any of this be fixed? I'm also trying to get info so I can have notes ready for our appointment tomorrow. Thanks for any info!


First Analysis:
! Liquefaction Abnormal minutes Rng:20-60
Semen Volume [L] 1.0 mL Rng:>=2.0
! Sperm Motility (Progressive)

The way I'm reading this (I'M CERTAINLY NO EXPERT) is:
Count: 105 million (which is well above "low" at 20 mil)
Motility: 10% (which is very low)
Morphology: not sure about this.....

I wanted to respond with our success story to let you know that there is hope. My husband was diagnosed in July 2013 with a low sperm count:

Count: 9 million
Motility: 14%
Morphology: 12%

He began taking Fertility Blend for Men (he's been taking 2 pills daily for the past 3 months) and was prescribed Clomid (he's been taking 25 mg daily for the past 2 months) and had a repeat SA today for our IUI and his numbers were much better! His count was still the same, but the motility was MUCH BETTER:

Count: 9 million
Motility: 87%
Morphology: 12%

Good luck! Keep us posted!
