Finally, good news!

After all of the drama at the beginning of the year with DH's varicocele surgery and recovery, we were very skeptical that anything good was to come from it.  Then, about the time he was to have an updated S/A, we had the roller coaster of the miscarriages and DH put it off indefinitely.  Finally, in prep for our cycle which starts next week, he went Wednesday for a S/A.  And today, we received GOOD news!

Count ~ 14 million (2x more than ever!)
Motility ~ 64% rapid, 9% slowly
Morphology ~ 0% perfect, 9% slightly abnormal

RE said the count and motility are definite improvements.  The morphology remains unchanged but with IVF it doesn't matter.  They will take the best looking sperm anyways!  We are elated and this is wonderful news to get this cycle started!  Less than 1 week!  Eeeeek!


  1. Yea! Good for you - it's about time you got some good news. Isn't it strange how after receiving so much bad news, you get kind of used to it, and it takes a little bit of time to wrap your head around good news? I hope you have a very successful cycle.

  2. That is great news. Good luck on your upcoming cycle.
