Yeah that is why I decided to start this thread so that others will give me answers as well. Ha ha, I am obsessed over it too. I love reading what others are going through, it definitely helps knowing that we are not in this alone.

My husband and I have talked about a donor but I don't know if I would want to have a kid with someone other than him. I would love to see what we can create.

Yeah I can't see how people can take care of that many babies as well. Look at Octo mom, she has a litter and she is bat shit crazy. People like that make me mad, like really? she has no job but she can some how afford to get an IVF just to have 8 more kids.

Hi Ladies

Im looking for your feedback on my OH results we got on Thursday

2ml
19million - 38 million total
motility A grade 6% Bgrade 24% c grade 25%
morphology 7%
ph 8.3
Athenozoospermia

we have the second one at the end of May

I have my OH on L arginine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, L-Carnitine Maca, vitamin C, E and A
I'm also looking into Astragalus

When we got the result I did cry all day but now im trying to be hopeful
we have been actively TTC for 10 months and we were NTNP since Sept 2008

Oh I am so so so glad this thread is here!!! I've been devastated since we got the results of my fiancées SA. He has 4 mill count and low motility we were told. I haven't seen the actual report so I don't know what all the other numbers are. We were told though that we would need IVF with ICSI to get pregnant. My worry is that it is so expensive and guarantee it will work. . I've been searching and searching for what we can do to increase his sperm count.

your total is ok it is a little low. It needs to be 20 million per cc, motile needs to be 40%, normal forms 4%. His motility does not look great either. Is he going to see a Urologist?

I am so sorry he has Athenozoospermia. I definitely know how you feel. I found out on Monday about my DH SA when I was driving, I was devistated all day.

It does get a little better day by day. How old is he? Did they say if he looked bad or give you any type of answers on what you may be able to do? If you can get pregnant with him being like this?

Definitely request a report. My saying is if you have to pay for it I want to know everything I paid for, lol. IVF is 8k where I am at and it is the only infertility treatment that my health insurance does not cover. IVF has a 70% rate of getting pregnant. So the odds are better good than bad.

My DH is 3 million per cc so we are in the same boat there. It is going to drive you crazy if you don't find out the motility and things. I had to call my Endocoronologist back and made her fax it to me.

Maybe look for a multi vitamin with lycopene, vitamin c, ginseng, and zinc.

The Sperm analyst said they dont conclude until the second SA. he didnt offer any vitamin help really just wellman conception but I think we need a more aggressive approach.

I have panax ginseng and Zinc i'll add that to the mix too and look into lycopene

See I thought the count was low but the sperm guy was like its fine, he did say the Motility is worrying but its not impossible to get pregnant but IVF will be an option if it doesnt improve

Me and OH are both 30 been together 11 years

I wish all of you good luck with your ttc journey. I've had all my checks and i'm fine but DH sperm count is low. We have been told IVF/ICSI is our best chance if we want to conceive. We should get the results of the second SA this Thursday at the FS. DH is on Wellman Conception to try and boost his count.

Like I said in the beginning of the thread, I ordered Fertility Blend. Check that one out too. Did you talk to him about an IUI? They would probably want to try that before IVF.
