Urologist Debrief

The urologist visit was pretty straightforward. Urine test, quick physical exam for varicocele (varicose veins in the scrotum that can hinder fertility - C doesn't have them), and an order for another semen analysis and some blood work. I tell ya, it's rather odd to watch your husband making silly faces at you when he's getting squeezed on an exam table.

The urologist said that C's analysis was actually kind of unusual in that the count was OK but the motility and morphology were low. It's too early to tell what might be wrong but C will drop off his sample on Monday and we will get results soon after that.

So it's a step forward, which is encouraging, but if they're just going to treat C it'll still be a few months after they start that before we can expect to see any results. Patience is my new mantra.
