I'm curious to see if anyone has tried this home semen analysis where you ship it off fed ex in this special container... Despite having a very shy man on my hands who is really uncomfortable with the idea of giving a semen sample... (Never mind all the crap that I've had to go through but we won't go there), we are also dealing with difficulties in getting appointments and dragging out what has already been a 3 year process (not long to some, but what seems like a lifetime to us).
Being a tech myself, I think this is a really neat idea. So I'm just trying to see if anyone here has tried this, and if they have met with any success. I've attempted to find reviews, but the company is so prolific in their advertising and net presence that I just get page after page of their stuff (which certainly is not unbiased). The doctor who has begun this process is an infertility expert so apparently he knows what he's doing and has created a system with the necessary tools to keep the sperm in an environment where they are kept alive long enough for them to do the analysis. It seems legit, but had to say with no real life reviews other the testimonials on their site (and it's not as if they'll put bad reviews on their site).
Now for my venting process: I'm getting a little desperate here because, I've been jerked around by doctors left and right, my previous doctor wasting a year of my life and not completing the standard necessary tests before trying to send me to a specialist, who is not in my network, my current doctor is a christian, which is great, so am I, but because my man and I are not married yet (we're doing things a little backwards) she would not give him a referral to the local lab, stating that my insurance won't cover him because he's not my husband. I called another local doctor and asked what I need to do to have him seen so we can get a referral and they asked If I was a patient, I explained the situation and the nurse says to me... "Well I can certainly see her point. But you're the patient." Really? You know, I thought they were doctors, what give them the right to judge me? How I'm living my life is between me and God and it's really none of their business besides the clinical aspects of it. (Done venting).
