    We had been ttc7 months so decided to start a few tests. I did a tracking cycle to confirm O and DH did his SA. Results came back so poor that our gp referred us to ivf same day.
    <1mill absolute count, poor forward progression and 5% mobility.
    I'm guessing the fs will do more detailed testing but that's all we know at this point.

    MrsTugs.... very sorry that you'll have to do IVF, and with mobility issues you'll probably have to do ISCI, but with such great numbers, <1 million, I could quite confidently say that it will work for you. They will easily be able to find some nice ones in each of those samples. My DH's count is 1.... yes just 1. A few GPs and FSs over the time have gone, "ah 1 million" and that's when we say "no, not 1 million, just 1". Good luck for your first cycle - do you know when that will be?

    Not great numbers no; "less that 1 mill" is as accurate as they have gone. So it's somewhere between zero and 1 mill.

    I actually got our initial consult booked in for this time next month, so just 4 weeks to twiddle our thumbs then we will know more.

    MrsTugs....that doesn't seem right - they usually give a specific count. From my experience "<1 million" actually means about the million mark. I am really confident that this is what it's going to turn out to be. Was the initial sperm count done through your DH's GP? The FS will definitely do a second sample when you go see him/her.

    The gp organised this one, and the one we did last week and haven't got results for yet.
    I know it can't mean near 1mill though because his "spermatozoa count" is <1mill/mL and "absolute count" is <1mill. With a 6mL deposit, the "sperm count" would HAVE to me a MAXUMIM of say 160k (which is 1 mill divided by 6mL).
    Sorry I don't know if I'm explaining that well, but I do know that the "<1mill" is basically the scientific way of writing "not enough"

    I am at work so quick note MrsTug. It is best to do the SA at the Fertility clinic. They spun the sample down to pellets. Normal lab doesnt do that which is probably the reason why they only give a upper limit.

    Hey ladies thought I would say hi,
    dh and I have been ttc #1 for nearly 3 years, I wasn't ovulating for 2 years so we had to figure that out first then discovered dh has sperm issues. fs said that we should be able to get pregnant naturally but said he wanted to start Ivf In feb, we are putting Ivf off till July cause I just don't feel ready yet.
    Not sure on what dh's issues are cause the dr seemed to gloss over it :/


    TTC #1 since July 2011

    good luck sorting things out cinder, hopefully you two come to a comfortable agreement.

    bbhope, we will be doing one with the fs i'm sure, appt isn't for another 4 weeks though, so it's just a waiting game from this point...
    dh gets his results from the second gp sa this afternoon so hopefully there's some slightly better news in this batch?
    i've got him on vits and healthy diet with no alcohol (and he quit smoking about 8 months ago for ttc) but this wont have shown up in this sa yet, as it's only been about 1-2 weeks since new regime

    MrsTugs: Hope there is better news for you this time around. Bertie and my hubby are on the same boat. Nada.......the worst, heart breaking diagnosis ever.

    Cinder: It is probably worth to chase the doctor for the SA report.
