Definitely keep us posted when his second results come back. Good luck to you as well Did you get Wellman Conception at the doctor?

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.

I've found this site a great help for supplement advise

I haven't been to that site. I will have to check that one out too.

Yeah he said he doen't think its worth it with those numbers, As they use IUI with higher numbers. But another consultant has a final say on what the next step would be.

if we can get the count higher id definitely ask for iui

Thats odd that they want the numbers higher. My doctor said the sperm count needs to be greater than or equal to 5 million per cc. All the doctors are different though.

It would be great if there was a blanket amount for all labs. He told us 8million rapid forward moving sperm. going by that result we dont have that, we aint even close

Ha ha, I know right. Well you can get him just to release in a sterile cup and you can do the rest. I was googling a Semen Analysis Scope, Those bad boys are expensive. I convienced my husband to do it that way he can hold off on going to the Urologist for 2 1/2 months, so he was game. Tell me if you find other things that may be good to do.
