So, my husband's results came back that the quantity and quality was fine (I didn't get #s), but that he has an irregular shape to his sperm. I was told that he needs to be retested to see if it's accurate. If so, they may have to "wash" the sperm and then do something similar to IVF but it's "not that expensive". This info is very overwhelming. Anyone have any info on this?View Thread
Thank you for the info. I was advised for him to have a recheck, but he'll be out of town for a few weeks now. I do not have the specifics on the test results, but I will get them. He did recently have some blood work done, and he has high cholesterol and was told he needs to reduce his sweets and starches and to take fish oil too. Could any of that affect his sperm?
We haven't been trying for long, but I am concerned as we are 38 and 40.
