Hello! My husband has had 2 SA's, both with similar results. We took them to the fertility clinic and the doctor told us that regular labs don't do a good enough job. He insisted that his office do one before he'd talk to us about options. Is this weird or is it just me?View Thread
Thank you Amy! The infertility doctor did day that normal labs don't test every parameter. I'm just cautious about taking his word as gospel because he is the only infertility doctor in the area (Eastern Washington). He told me there were no urologists in the area with a fertility speciality, would you mind checking that for me? I'm just afraid of being yanked around because there is no other immediate competition and your point about it being a cash business. I really appreciate your feedback.
After an SA showed low sperm count, my husband's doctor referred him to a urologist. The appointment with urologist was not very helpful. He pretty much told us that because the problem was not vericoles the next step was IUI or IVF. He could not answer our questions about supplements or any others things to try to increase sperm count. He seemed incapable or unwilling to talk through our questions. My question is, is a urologist really the right doctor for fertility problems or was he just not knowledgable? Is it worth finding a different urologist or is there a different type of specialist that could help more?
Thanks so much for any advice you all might have!View Thread
Amy, thank you so much for your response. These suggestions are the most helpful info we've received. His testosterone level came back normal but no other horomones were checked, so I think that would be a good thing to find out. I think we will try other urology offices in the ares and hopefully someone will be able to help us a little more.
Thank you again for taking the time to provide so much info, I really appreciate it!View Thread
