But was light blue (i thought) we re tested when i had af so i wouldn't miss out...lol and did everything right.. this time it was too thick and wouldnt adsorb. Looked light (i continued the test) but my partner said it looked the same as the control. Hard to tell when ones a liquid and one is a solid, they wont always look the same..

    I then googled, loads had issues with the stuff not adsorbing and difficulty reading the test.. oh well.. we are due for a sa (dr requested sperm test) now. But im in my window and reluctant to have him abstain for 3 days. Af falls over xmas so nothing will be open and i reallh want those results.. we r discussing what to do as he wont do the deed and take his sample in, he wants me to take it in.. lol..

    I had seen a fertility specialist at genea prior to ttc as my partner needed a vacectomy reversal. My tests came back good, low iron and vit d. But i am anaemic from heavy af, even on iron supplements.

    Had iron retested after this and again low and low vit d but he wasnt concerned about vit d as was still cold outside, not in sun as much. Ive had issues with iron and vit d for many years. Had a iron infusion 2 months ago now need bloods to see if it worked or if i need another, not pleasant.

    We are in the 4th mont ttc post reversal, i just want to know if he has sperm...
    Hi Plj77,

    Thanks so much. I know how you feel, we wanted to do the home test again but im also in my window so told him to keep himself for me lol
    Im going to make an appointment for Dr tests, ive had some amazing advice on here (thanks @Hopefulat40, @nightowlsurprise @ElleAstic) and will get the proper tests done in the new year.
    I've read some terrible reviews on the home tests so shouldn't have wasted the money. All its done is stress hubby out!!

    Fingers crossed to you for this month xx

    You'd think the Dr doing the reversal would have checked his sperm after the reversal to make sure the procedure worked !!!
