1st post-op SA! — The Bump
Trouble TTC

1st post-op SA!

There has been some improvement after DH's varicocele surgery! His original SAs were:

SA #1: 22 mil, 15% motility, 4% morphology
SA #2: 6 mil, 5% motility, 0% morphology

SA #3 (today, 1st post-op) was 9 mil, 29% motility, and 0% morphology.  Our Dr. likes his patients to get to 15 mil, 30% motility, and 2% morphology by the time they level off after the surgery, so we're about halfway there so far!  He also gave DH a 30-day supply of tamoxifen to help boost testosterone/sperm production. Next appointment is August 30.
