Results pt. 3

The SA results are in and they are not as good as hoped.

Low count (12 mil / ml) and low morphology (9%). On the other hand, they are excellent swimmers (65%) and the anti-sperm antibody was negative. This earns the husband a trip back to the dreaded place in 3 weeks and a trip to a urologist's office in the near future.

On one hand, I'm upset by the results. Now we're possibly battling male and female factor. On the other hand, I'm relieved that maybe it isn't all me and there's a chance we're both going to need help to make a baby.

I don't know where we go from here. All I know is that he goes back to give another sample in 3 weeks and he's hoping the first test was just a fluke.

It could be a fluke. My hubby once gave a sample that my gynecologist said he should frame and then gave another sample that made my RE decied we should do ICSI.

If it's not a fluke, it's still surmountable.
