    Default Husbands semen analysis

    Can anyone tell me what is written on my husbands semen analysis means. "low rapid motility in wash-potential for reduced fertilisation; IVF or ICSI as clinically indicated"

    His swimmers don't really move fast enough which reduces the chances of conception (naturally, I'm assume). You are probably looking at needing IVF or ICSI to get pregnant.

    Wish my fs had told me that in June when we got the test done instead of telling me we had a good chance of getting pregnant on our own, then suggesting Ivf in December. Here I was thinking we didn't really need IVF.

    Well the FS would know best but as an RN that's how I read that report. I've got no background in fertility, I'm just reading straight from the report.
    Maybe there were other contributing factors that made the FS think everything might be ok?

    Here is the report, if anyone can make sense of it that would be great. It looks pretty alright to me.
