Hubs got his sperm count results back, and as I mentioned a little while back, I have been so wrapped up in my own fertility stuff, I never really looked into what “good” numbers were. Hubs called and spoke to my gyno about the results, but to be honest, my gyno is a bit lax in general when it comes to disseminating test result news (I think he gets paranoid about alarming people), and Hubs didn’t really know what questions to ask…so…
Total Count: 43 million
Motility: 74% (which gyno said was really good)
Morphology: 7% (which gyno said was low-ish, but didn’t seem too concerned about)
Now of course, I’ve Dr. Googled “normal sperm morphology” and have been getting such a mixed bag of info, I don’t know what to believe. Some people are saying they had no problems getting pregnant with 7%, and others say that their docs are recommending IVF with ICSI and that this number is terrible???
Does anyone have anything to add to this equation? Is there anything Hubs can take or avoid taking that will help the morphology a bit? Is this even a concern?
I’m confused. I think I’ll go have an ice cream and decompress. OH WAIT. Damnit.
