Blood Work


#1

so many questions… hubby had his 2nd analysis today if abnormal again they want to screen for blood work. We don’t know what to expect at this point. RE already discussed options of IUI or IVF + ICSI. Any helpful advice to ease me will be appreciated.

They will must likely run blood work for testosterone, FSH, estrogen. (There may be a few others but these are the important ones). The may also run chromosome testing as certain conditions can cause reduced sperm count. The hormone results usually provide quick results, but the chromosome testing can take a few weeks.
I hope today’s analysis went better! Good luck!

I just saw in your signature your dh had undescended teste as a baby. Was this corrected with surgery when he was a baby?
