hopingforababy - January 2

. My dh and I have been trying to conceive for a year and a half now. We have been married for 2 years. I know it is hard for him to go to a clinic, but I notice that his sperm is thin or watery like. I read on the internet it should be thinner for easy traveling to the egg. I have been check and everything is fine with me. I was wonder was there a different between thick and watery like semen on which carries the most sperm or does it matters. I read in a medical book at school that thick semen was the best, but like I said on the internet it contradict it.


Dear hopingforababy - January 2

Hi there, I just thought I'd pop in and offer a bit of advice if that's okay. My dh and I have been ttc-ing for a VERY long time now with no luck (still trying though, it's gonna happen!). I really do understand when you say that it's hard for dh to go to a clinic. But, we've learned that trying for a baby needs to be something that you're both committed to. If he really wants a baby with you, he'll realize it's part of the ttc process for him to go to the clinic. If he really doesn't want to go, you have to wonder if he's ready to be a dad or not, and that's something you'll need to discuss some more perhaps. You can speculate for a long time about his semen, and never know the answers, whereas a simple test will tell you everything you need to know about his sperm content etc. Over time, it's actually improved the relationship between my dh and I because we've had to communicate and work together towards becoming parents. That includes him being tested (his sperm was fine) and may include him having to go again to give a sample for an IUI... I apologize if I sound like I'm being preachy or harsh, I just know where you're coming from, and I want to save you some time and grief. With both of you on the same page, you'll feel much better about the whole ttc thing. Much luck and baby dust to you my dear...!
