    My DH just received his SA test in the mail yesterday, what a coincidence, haha. I am very interested to see his results.

    And Kelsey as far as making sure you're ovulating a great thing to pair with the OPK's is to start temping and charting (if you're not already) that way you can see when your surge is from the OPK's or CBFM and then you can confirm ovulation if you get a temp increase. Might be worth a shot. :D

    That's good you got great results. Wasn't aware this type of thing was over the counter. What's it called?

    Wow, I had no idea you could order this kind of test over the internet. I think OH would be too embarrassed to do something like this at the doctor's office and probably wouldn't consider it until after we'd been TTC for a year or more. We're only on Cycle #1 right now but I'm worried it'll take a long time for us. I've read a lot about PCOS and am worried I might have it, I went to the doctor but they won't run any tests until we've been TTC for longer. Plus, my OH was previously married and they never used BC and never got a BFP throughout their marriage (2-4 years?)....

    He's not home right now so I sent him a message to see if he had objections to me ordering this for us! :)

    i'm gonna speak with my OH about this, depending on these results we maybe able to push it with the doctors as the NHS in my area doesn't do a semen anaylsis tests anymore, it's so much cheaper then going private like they want us too
