Thoughts or advice on what to do next?
To get an accurate semen analysis there has to be at least two tests run, a minimum of three months apart. I'd say that's definitely your next step. It's inexpensive and the information provided from the ultimate result can answer so many questions.

Thanks for the info.

I like all of these insider tips I receive from couples who have gone through this battle. I would never ask someone I knew these questions, lol! I will call soon to see about how to get that set up. I'm not even sure where he would go to do this.

Unless the facility you go to is super small, he should be able to leave a sample right there. They're given a room and a cup and some privacy and that's all there is to it. If you live close enough he can do what he needs to do at home and then drop it off within the first hour. A lot of clinics will simply check volume (how much) count (how many live) and motility (how well they move). If big and experienced enough they can also check viscosity (how thick) and morphology (what shape are they, heads to round or flat, double heads, double tails, tails to short or long etc).

If a facility isn't equipped to do this testing they can easily send a sample off to a clinic that can. It doesn't cost much at all (they ran us $85 each billed), is usually covered by insurance (ours was) and results come quickly (next day was our experience). A lot of questions can be answered in that first test, the second just confirms the accuracy of the first test (sometimes the first will result poorly due to environmental circumstances or illness for example, but the second will confirm a rebound - at which point a third should be done to confirm those secondary results)


I totally get not feeling comfortable asking these questions of family and friends. It's exactly why I sought out this board when we started down our journey

Day 38 of my cycle. I'm going to call the doctor Wednesday if I don't get my period. Pregnancy tests are negative. Anyone else have a jacked up cycle after an HSG?
