    Well, the time has come to say goodbye girls. We finally know what's wrong. DH's SA come back today - 40% motility and a whopping 87% abnormalities. No wonder when I finally get pg I lose it. IVF wouldn't be an option financially until at least 6-8 months and I can't do this anymore so this is the end of our journey.

    Much love and light to everyone

    I'm completely and utterly devastated, I'm not ready to give up. I'm angry at DH bc I've been asking him for nearly a year to get another test as I knew it had to be him given I've had every test that exists. The side effects of clomid, the pain of the lap, all for nothing bc he couldn't man up, accept it may be him and spunk in a cup.

    Del. hi. I just saw your post. When you say 87% abnormalities was that the morph section? Because up to 96% abnormal is considered good. And the motility bit ours says on it total motility above 39% is normal and 31% progressive is normal

    The dr told him over 70% abnormality is really bad. His count is fine, although he wasn't given a figure. He was told his motility is under 40%, this was over the phone. He has a drs appointment but our gp is away for over another week. Considering I've had 1 pg in over 2 years it's clearly an issue.

    I'm not ready to give up

    What was your DH's morphology %?

    His was considered normal all round.
    Note the morph ranges. Up to 96% is normal. Most men get 4-5 % normal
    It also depends if the doctor meant total motility or progressive.

    Sounds like he needs to pick up a copy today from reception desk. So you can work out what doctor 70%means
    Edit I just looked on the net and it said that men are lucky if their sperm have more than 5% normal.

    Interesting Kazza. He's gone now to get a print out. I've read The Mayo clinic in the US says 1/3 should be healthy, then I read elsewhere FS like to see over 14% normal. I'm frustrated and angry right now that we are being d*cked around. DH said the language the dr used was quite negative using the word "only" a lot. It wasn't our usual GP.

    Apparently codeine and caffeine are bad for morphology and motility. DH has a back injury several years ago and takes forte for it and drinks way too much coffee.

    Thank you so much for responding to me. I feel like the women on here know more than the bloody drs do

    Yeah doctor sounds like he still reading old guidelines. Pretty sure most sources now say above 4% is normal. Love to see a copy if your willing to post. I am no expert tho but others may be able to help

    Del, when my DH got his first SA (years ago now) his results came back terrible! I'll have a look because I can't remember the exact numbers. I do recall we were told that motility was extremely poor & they were clumping together & not moving as they're meant to be. And that some were abnormal (can't remember the no's but they weren't good). We were also told (by a GP, who are not FS's) that we wouldn't be able to get pregnant (we did later but it ended in a m/c).

    I did a lot of researching online while we were waiting to see a FS. We changed to Menevit, 1000 mg of Vit C a day & Zinc tablets. He also reduced alcohol & increased fitness (lost around 5kg's). His next test a few months later was almost perfect.

    It may not be the answer but it did help us. I agree, getting the print out would be helpful

    I know my DH put on a brave face but was devastated just talking about it. I guess it's a fairly sensitive subject with guys. I hope he is doing ok.
