Urologist and results

So went to the Urologist to go over all of hubs tests. His testorone was low, motility,morph,count low. He advised still a shot on our own, but the odds were really against us. He did not want to treat the low T becuase it could make matters worse.He said with weight loss (signed hubbs and I both up with WW), he said that would naturally help with testorone. He also advised that his hernia operation when he was younger def. a factor since he is pretty sure he has one functioning testicle. He advised to def. seek a RE and that there was nothing he could really do right now for him.

We already had a RE appointment in place on 9/21, and although it is bittersweet, I am so excited, and relieved that we know the issues and can move forward. I feel like there is more hope than before. It stinks that he was diagnosed with MFI, but now we can move forward. Now hoping that he will have enough "good" sperm to do IUI. I guess we will find all that out on 9/21. THanks for all the support and love and I guess I will settle in here, and learn about what I will be facing. If I can be as half as strong as some of you ladies I think I may just be ok. Thanks again for letting me be here.

    Sorry you got the MFI diagnosis from the urologist, but like you said, it is relieving to finally get a diagnosis. It is definitely exciting you're moving forward with the process and I wish you all the luck! Keep us posted on your RE appointment.

    Sorry for the disappointing news. It definitely sucks. 

    Good luck at the RE, though! Has your DH has an SA with IUI prep? That will likely be the deciding factor as to whether you can do an IUI or not. I hope you get good news on 9/21!

    Hubbs has not done the bolded before, thanks for the heads up though.I am wondering if they will do that first? Thanks again everyone for the support.

    Welcome, sorry you have to be here and for the MFI dx. My hubby has lowish Testosterone, count and soso motility. MFI sucks, but its nice to have a problem to be frustrated at. Good luck at your RE appt. I'd take a copy of the SA and maybe get a second one done if you haven't already and see what the doctor says. We are still pursuing IUIs with low count/T. Our doc says it can be done! : Good luck!

    Hi Diva-

    I'm so sorry that you got the MFI Dx. MFI really sucks a fat one. The other thing you may ask your Uro about is putting your husband on Clomid or a combo of Clomid/Arimidex. My husband had very low T and that combo helped his numbers a lot. He has lost a ton of weight and that corrected his testosterone levels, but not his sperm counts. Anyway- just something else to ask the uro about.

    Wishing you the best on the 21st!

    Wishing you the best on the 21st! Thanks so much! I did ask about the clomid, he said he really thinks if he just loses some weight that will balance out. I changed his vitamins and added that co q10 one. He is not sure if he will ever get awesome awesome numbers since he is really working with half a factory so to speak. Since his other numbers were normal he said he did not want to go clomid combo etc because it can mess with FSH and then hinder what he has working with already. He seemed optimistic, but we shall see come the 21st. Great advice thanks!!!!GL to you!!

    Good luck on the 21st!

     I was just lurking the boards to see if I could find someone else in a similar boat.  My DH's SA was not good.  He had 0 motility and they said he only had 30 sperm.  Not 30 million, just 30.  We went to the urologist on Thursday and they found a lump in a testicle so now he needs a sonogram and BW to check his testosterone levels.  I just wish I knew what to say to him, ya know?  Guys have a weird reaction to these sort of things. 

     Best of luck to both of you!

    I am so sorry for what you are going through!!! Please let me know, Pm how you made out at the dr. It is hard with guys, well my husband because I wear my thoughts on my sleeve. All you can do is just support, and be there to talk. I feel now like every finding is a step closer to what is going on and maybe the dr. is  able to help "fix it" for you. In our case there was no real fix , so I was frusterated. I am really good now, had time for it to sink in and in some weird way I was happy cause now we have the known "issue" and we can finally move forward, instead of circles. Hopefully they are able to resolve what is going on for your hubbs! I got everything crossed for ya!!!!!! (((Hugs))) stay encouraged!
