Hi another newbie here  ;)

Just thought I would intorduce myself to you all. Me and my OH have been TTC since Jan 04 i already have a DD so haven't really had any tests Dr did do  blood test but not any any specific day and said it was all OK. OH had a SA done 11/4/05 and the results explain we we aren't pg.

4.6 million per mil and 3.8 mil so low count
only 5% rapid progressive 6% slow proressive 9% non progressive and 80% immotile
Morphology was even worse 99% abnormal 1% normal
all other stast were OK

It hit me like a ton of bricks and i spent a good 3/4 days crying, they didn't give us any options or solutions at the appointment just saifd we will test again to confrim the counts, and mentioned something about maybe using donor sperm if the same results came up!!!

I feel a little more in control now have OH on loads of vits and under srict insructions not to drink wear his boxers NO pants and NO more baths!!!

I don't really know how i feel about it all now, i am 10DPO today and can't help feling a litt;e hopeful that despite the odds we might have hit the jackpot this month, i know I am setting myself up for a fall. I wish we had some concreate answers and some options, I have read somethings that suggest ICSI might be OK for us?? I don't think I can accept we aren't going to have kids just yet.

Thanks for rading this sorry its so long its just nice to be able to share!

Hi angela

I have used another board alot up until now, but it didn't have that much about infrtility on it so i am swithching between both boards now. i have made some good virtula friends and don't think I could have got this far in my TTC (trying to conceive) journet without the support i have had.

Good luck to you too, i have faith that it will all be OK in the end  :)

Hi all,

Just wanted to say my DH had a very low sperm test result in Dec 04. He was advised to go for a retest and also we read that accupuncture could help. he went for this, and adopted a healthier lifestyle and was then retested March this year and it came back OK! Then a few weeks ago I saw the fertility specialiet, and she said he could've just had an infection, and that sperm couns go up and down all the time.
We have been ttc for 3 years, I have never been preg, but every month I live in (diminishing,) hope. I think it's the only way.
So good luck, don;t give up and remember you've got lots of new friends here who will support you through the rollercoaster ride!

xx
