AuCa I've heard the home kits just give you whether his count is good whereas an SA checks morphology and motility as well which are both super important. I didn't think hubby would be willing to get one done at all but he did recently and it was not a big deal at all. I just made the initial appt for him with my Dr and he did all the rest. It really is a relief to know there's nothing wrong there

And yes all the referral stuff is crazy! I assume the gyno will have my hsg done and if all is good probably refer me to a fertility specialist
At least I only have to wait a few weeks for the appointment, I was sure it was going to be 6 months or more!

Where in Canada do you live?

We actually ordered a kit which (in theory) is supposed to measure morphology and motility as well. Well, the downside is that it's not the kit that measures it but ourselves (it comes with a small microscope and everything). Here is the link:

We'll see how it goes...
I think my DH would be willing to get an SA, but we would like to wait until next year March or so....

We live in Calgary
I'm also surprised you got in so quick, that's awesome! I just started seeing a new GP here and I think she'll be good when it will come to that (she has a special interest in prenatal stuff, and the clinic has 2 docs who do non-complex deliveries too).

Hey girls! I'm back on the grapefruit juice train today, picked up 3 cartons in a quick dash through the supermarket! Two hidden in the cupboard in case of emergencies, one in the fridge ready to go!

My gp is the same, very family oriented, full hospital privileges, I know I'll be in good hands if I ever manage to actually get pregnant

Nice!! I'm so happy I found this one, as it is so hard to find a good GP here , especially since Ive' been moving around lot and constantly have to find a new one.

I have really good insurance and did not need a referral. Frankly I'm hoping we get a bfp before the appointment! Dh did have the sa-great counts but lowish motility. I think if things look fine with me, clomid combined with IUI is a very likely suggestion by the specialist-just my prediction we shall see what he says.

Well hopefully we'll both have to cancel our appointments because we're preggers although I do have an ultrasound appointment on Jan 8 that I will totally keep either way
