So ladies i called the doctor who ordered dh's SA to ask more into detail about the sa & robitussin because someone said it can mess with sperm volume and etc. I wanted to be sure before he takes it. I actually got to speak with the doctor. She said his count motility and everything was good his semen was just a little thicker than they'd like it to be and that's it's not really a big deal some men just have thicker semen. This is the woman who tries to push bc on me at every corner but today she said "hopefully we can get you to be an OB patient soon." That excited me since she tried to push bc on me a couple of times. If this new doctor is good i will switch though.

I'm glad you got to talk to the doctor instead of someone else and get the correct info. When in doubt, ask for the doctor.

the nurse told me the wrong robitussin and made it seem worse than what it was.

Your DH's hydration level could also have affected the sample. My DH always noticed that if he was at all dehydrated, his semen was thicker. Push the water

Thanks ladies. I was VERY shocked. She even said "well pregnancy is the main goal and it's a relief the SA came back good" I about fell over lol! If i don't like this new doctor i think i will stick with her if she doesn't try the BC crap again. Also we both will start drinking more water. we need to!
