The results are in.

The doctor had called the hubbs two nights ago about the results of his S/A, but he was working so he just left him a message saying that "He needed to talk to him, and that they needed to discuss some things." Naturally I freaked out and was thinking the worst, and then waited all day yesterday and FINALLY he called us back at 9 pm last night. Yeah, weird I know. We thought that was a little late too, but whatev, I was just happy that he called and I didn't have to wait another day to find out what was going on.

So here is what is up: His count was good. 180 million. Seems like a TON but we will take it, we need all we can get. The problems are that only 40% of them are normal and then other 60% either have head or tail abnormalities. The doctor also thought it was a little weird because the consistency was a little thicker than normal, which Chris thinks that maybe it was because he was dehydrated? Also there was only 30% motility which he said was not good at all, they normally want at least 60% motility. So bascially the other 70% were not moving at all and not alive. NOT cool little swimmers...NOT cool.....
So, the doc. told him to cut back to only one caffienated beverage a day (we don't drink soda at all, but he does like his coffee.....) and only 3 or less alcoholic beverages a week. And then in another 10-14 days after abstaining they are going to do another test.
SO....now we wait some more. I am hoping that the next test results are better and produce higher motility and less abnormalities. And that is that. At least we have some answers now......

I know it's scary and frustrating to get back less than stellar results, but it sounds like his issues can be dealt with through vitamins and diet, which is great. Plus, now you know what is going on, which is going to help you reach a solution that much faster! You can look back at my blog for our exact results, but Trev also had good count, but horrible morphology at 2%, which is much worse that your DH's. Hang in there!
