Are you sure there wasn’t even one?!
This is the first of “hopefully” not too many entries. I have to start out by saying I never thought that this would happen to me. I figured that eventually things would come together and we would just have kids. As time went on, I guess I realized something was not right. I pushed off a statement by a urologist that was said many years ago to me when I had an infection of the prostate. He realized something might be abnormal but said that I shouldn’t worry and there was no need to look further into it unless my wife (at that time, it was my girlfriend) was unable to get pregnant.
I took my step into the fertility world on Monday 1/26/09. I was provided with a sterile cup and told to do work. I did the duty, dropped it off and tried to forget about it until the results came. This brings us to today.
I knew something was wrong as soon as I got back into the house from a little potty stroll with Keena (that’s my dog by the way!). Jess (my wife) was on the couch crying. I knew she had called the doctor on the way out so I had an idea of what was wrong. I was a little taken back when she said there was no sign whatsoever of any sperm in the semenalysis.
I’m unsure of how to feel. I keep running it through my head, and the only thing I could think of is that maybe someone made a mistake at the lab. I know it sounds silly, and it’s probably not true, but how do you handle someone telling you that one of the main things that make a man, a man is not present in you.
