    Default Quick question

    Quick question -

    if your fertility specialist called you and wanted to make sure that your Dp was coming to the appointment on Wednesday would this be considered bad? or is it routine?

    We went and had some tests done, dp had his semen analysis and i had a few as well.

    im thinking its bad, either for him or he wants dp their to comfort me.

    I just think it's strange.

    My husband was always expected to come with me and he never even had tests done?

    I thought it was routine when giving the results of fertility tests that both parties be present - I am sure my dh wouldn't want me to be getting his results (good or bad) without him! And vice versa

    Yeah I'd say don't worry about it, my DP was asked to come along when he got his SA results and they were fine

    They like you to both be there for results; it makes sense if they need to explain something or if either of you have questions. You don't want to get the results by yourself, then go home and are not able to remember everything you were told, or have DH say, "Hang on, what about (XYZ)?". Lol.

    I was forgetting about that side of it. It has been me organising everything the whole way i sort of got into the mind set that Dp wasn't needed?
    Dp will go Wednesday and i will still have to explain it a 100 times, bless his heart

    Thanks again everyone, has tipped the worry scales back closer to even

    I'm a bit like that too. On my lastest IVF cycle DH couldn't be there, and I totally forgot that he would have to sign the consent forms too.. In my head I thought that my signed consent should be enough, lol!

    I know, men, right? Our issues are MFI and DH still has no idea. He just tells me to "hurry up and get pregnant".

    they usually like you both there because it takes both of you to make a baby and they will need to ask you both questions. Don't stress about it at all, it's pretty standard.

    Well it wasn't routine this time

    Dp has low morphology and motility. Have slips for another semen analysis that we need to get done in Melbourne (hour away) and blood tests to check his hormone levels.

    I've missed one test as well (21day progesterone test) 3 months ago i was 6 days late for my preiod, last month 11 days this month i got my period on day 25 Normally 30days, i missed the test because i was thinking i was going to go late again.

    So he also said that i could have possible ovulatory issues as well as dp's issues.

    Also my rubella immunity is low, I am getting the booster shot done this month. So no TTC for a month.

    Just thought i would let you all know

    Dp has been quite most of the day - he jokingly blamed his sperm problems on the government because they have changed things in our industry of work (causing lots of stress) he thinks his sperm is just affected by stress and he'll be right in a few months Love the man!

    He did feel bad that it was his sperm causing the problem that has been giving me so much heart ache Told him it's not just HIS fertility problem it's ours. No matter who it was/is the problem we both have to help each other.

    Have just let him have his thoughts today and we'll get into a plan of attack tomorrow.

    Does anyone know how i could tackle this with him? ways to help him and the problem?


    Sorry im blabbing, we've had a pretty relaxing night with a few drinks and just forgetting it all, so im drink bubhubbing


    Thanks again all of you for calming me down the other day
