Mrs Evans I am convinced something isn't right, last month was my first "proper" period, heavy etc and sorry this is TMI but I used to have bad clots before the procedure and up until last month I didnt have any so I was convinced they weren't coming out due to narrowing or something!! Was in a lot of pain aswell!! The HSG has been on my mind a lot with scar tissue cos I've read about that too, maybe they'll send me for one when I go to see the FS! When did you have it done?

Thanks so much Future mama, that sounds soo much better!! xxx

My husband and I have been TTC for 14 months now. He has had 2 SA done and the first one came back with a really high count, great motility but his morphology was low at 7%. The second test was 15% morphology and the rest the same. The family doc thinks the poor morphology is because of his job. He is an engineer in a big steel making plant and does a lot of hand on work in the plant and it is a very hot environment. We have been referred to a FS and our appoinment is in a week and a half. I am praying for some easy solutions to our TTC problem.

Yeah OH motility and count is good, cant understand it! Did your OH do anything to increase his morphology? That's an impressive increase! Id be happy if it went to about 5 at least else all this vitmamins and detox is for nothing :/ xx

When did you have the LLETZ? Ah I bet thats whats up, sometimes it hurts to even sit down when AF comes, it's still heavy though, were you bleeding normally before the op in July? The pain I get isn't like period pain, its more like a sharp, strong pain, like an electric shock over and over again lol! Doesnt seem as bad lately though since I cut down on caffeine, weird xx

Well his family doctor thinks the primary problem with the morphology is his work environment because it is extremely extremely hot. Heat is a primary source of poor morphology. So the second SA was done after a few days off of work. They think the improvement was due to to the less exposure to heat. Only problem is that it is still in the abnormal range

Strange as OH job doesn't involve heat and he doesn't have hot baths or anything. Plays a lot of football and wears jeans a lot hmm interesting though. Thanks llampie. Definitely something to keep in mind xx

I've been researxhing this topic a lot over the past years and there is nothing that one can say definately helps! I notice that DH's morphology is awlays gigher after a hoiday so i vote stress could play a role! Try to increase count and motility and quality to compensate ! Enviromental toxins are not good so we started lots of antioxidants, 1000 vit E, 1000 vit C pycogenol, grapeseed extract, vit d, cq10, lycopene, acai berry! This coctail got our count to 46mil/ml, 75% motility and after hols morphology gors up to 5%.. Total volume 6ml. thats up from 18mil/ml, 34% motile and 2% morphology!
Also check his semen for infections... Chlamydia, ureaplasma, mycroplasma.., you can only do this privately though... Treatment is antibiotics and in a number of studies it has a great effect on man with previous infection! Also check prostate and varicocelle(sp) high temperature in the scrotum due to varicocelle can cause them to morph....
Just a thought....

Thanks so much brunbar, very interesting and helpful! Bit wary cos he was having pain in that area a while back. He had an ultra sound, would a variocele be picked up from an ultra sound and examination? Xx
