Trying to Get Pregnant

Those ladies whose H's have had SA's...

...when did they have them done?  Was it after the year mark of TTC?

I had my annual exam today and my doctor suggested that since we are on the 7th cycle, we might want to think about having an SA done.  Should we be thinking about that already?  I am torn about things like this b/c I feel like we have had some TERRIBLE timing each cycle (only having sex 2 times in each fertile window), so I don't know that I want to get into testing just yet. I think we just need to jump on it more often in that window.  At the same time though, if there is something to be concerned about, maybe its better to know earlier?

Ugh, sorry to be so wishy-washy.

Any thoughts?  TIA, ladies!

Re: Those ladies whose H's have had SA's...

  • My DH had his done after 3 months TTC because I have  health issues and we were being referred to an RE right away.  The SA was required before we could be referred.  Also, DH works is an AME and works with hazardous chemicals every day.

  • I believe we were at 10 cycles (December) when he had one..which was just before the one year mark.

    If you think its the lack of timing rather than an actual issue, give it a couple more cycles and try harder with the timing!

    I can't wait for the "im getting a divorce" post in 5 years or so because your husbands were fed up with your disgusting chair asses from playing on the knot all day and getting fired 4-5 times for not doing any work. you guys are all winners!! ~ Laur929

  • My DHs SA was done after the year mark.  We figured it was one of the cheaper tests that can rule out MFI

  • Thank you for the feedback, ladies.  I think we will aim to have better timing this cycle, and then think about our options next cycle.

  • We had ours done earlier than one year, but I was having some problems so our RE ordered it when we started treatment there.

    It's up to you whether you want to wait or not.
