    so we got the phone call yesterday from kevin's urologist. however, he talked to them and didnt ask many questions so i'm trying to figure out what the results mean. ive looked a bit online, but i think its just confusing me more?! help! :dohh: they said the normal range is 60-200 and he is at 55. they said it is absolutely nothing to be concerned about and the slight decrease can be caused from stress. i think im mainly trying to figure out what this number represents? could it have an effect? what causes this, things other than stress?

    Men don't ask the right questions do they!! DH got his results over the phone and barely asked any q's either...frustrating aren't they ;)

    I think what he means is a healthy amount of sperm is 60 - 200 million and your DH's sperm count is 55 million. A bit strange because our doc told us that 20 - 200 was considered normal, and my DH's first came back at 15, and they said the same i.e. a tad low but nothing to worry about.

    The stress thing is totally true - when DH did his first one I'd just lost a baby, he'd just started a new job and he'd had flu. He repeated the test 3 months later and this time it was better - I don't know exactly what the result was, as the doc apparently told him it was "well above 20, and that's great" and I was like, but how much above 20? DH never even thought to ask....sigh.

    So I'm sure it's all fine and nothing to worry about, maybe get him to take a multivit, eat a bit more fruit+veg etc if he doesn't already and he'll be grand :)

    Good luck x

    they probably meant the count is 55 million but if your not sure I am sure you could call and ask.

    If that's the count, it's normal.

    With my husband, no one called us to tell us that his numbers were low. It was only because I was curious and asked them for the results when I found out that the test was bad and that was like 3 weeks later lol.

    The good news is that when he had his repeat SA everything came back okay. It was all borderline, but it was still normal. He wouldn't have passed the old WHO standards.
