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
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
