Fertility clinic visit Monday.  

Nov 19, 2015 - 15 comments

So as usual my nerves are creeping back up on me now that our visit is 4 days away.  I do have a question though.  

I know they're going to do a semen analysis.  Will we know the results while we're there?  They said our first visit will be 2-3 hours long and was hoping to know the results.

I would think they would have someone who could look at the specimen under the microscope to see if there were some. An actual report (SA) would take longer. Some urologists look at samples post vasectomy in office rather then have the sample go to the lab. I would ask to see if they are willing to 'take a look' while you both are there. That way you have time to think about things. I hope everything goes better then you expect at the appointment. I hope your questions are answered and your able to get a better idea of what exactly needs to be done.
Sending you my love

Thank you so much PB!!  Hoping I can come back with at least some good news. :D

E I was hoping they'd at least be able to tell us something.  Of course I'm expecting a miracle but leaving there not knowing anything about his analysis will drive me nuts.  I hope and pray so too!  I can't believe once this weekend passes we'll be on our way. Our appointment is 10:30.  Eeek!!!  Sending you all love and hugs!!  

Kee thank you so much!  I hope and pray for the same thing, for the both of us.  Praying this is our year!!  Sending you love and hugs.  

Heather, thank you so much! :D I'm so excited but more nervous lol.

Thank you so much Shannon.

I'm nervous (in a good way) & excited for you Des.

I know that if they look under a microscope (in office) they can say:
There are some
There are none OR
There are some but they aren't alive

The rest of the info like motility etc will take more then a brief 'look'.
Do you think they will tell you over the phone or email so your not in suspense
all weekend? Fertility clinics are open weekends in case they are closed for the day already.

Thank you E!  

Oh that's good.  Something is better than nothing.  I can wait on specifics lol.
I'm sure they'll give me a ring, a test or something when they know more.  I had to sign a paper stating it's okay to leave a message on our voice mail or home phone.  I'm definitely going to ask to be sure though.  :)  

Ugh I'm so nervous I don't know what to do with myself.  Thankfully we have a busy weekend and that'll help keeping me occupied.  
I hope you have a wonderful weekend E!!

My husband just had his SA and they told him it takes 2-3 days. We heard results the next day. Good luck!

Lol KTowne, thank you and the typos are not a problem.  Mine are horrible when I'm on my phone,  well they're bad on my lap top too.  I know if I ever have to replace any key it's going to be the backspace one.  :)

Thank you so much for your kind words and the support.  I'm so excited and driving myself crazy at the same time.  I know without a doubt we're going time be overwhelmed with info Monday, I just hope I can handle it all.  

Hoping and praying we get some positive news so I can share with you all.  :D
