Official Results (Finally!)

I happened to be in the area today, and I like to have copies of all the results.  So, I went to IVFNJ today and picked up the semenalysis results from Friday, as well as the official results for the Chromosome Reflex thingamajigger.  I have to say, the Chromosomes do look happy!  The results come with a pretty picture of a whole bunch of chromosomes that are sporadically placed on the page (I will eventually scan it and post it).  The official statement of the chromosome tests are that I am completely normal.  That is a bit of a relief, because gene problems can be passed to offspring.  I would never want anyone to have go through this.  As for the semenalysis, they did find some sperm but none were motile, and there didn’t appear to be any that were morphologically normal.  As I said in my last post, I’m just happy they found something.

We Got Sperm!

When I had my last appointment with the reproductive urologist, he wanted me to have another semenalysis.  I reluctantly agreed, and set up a appointment to bring it there.  Jess got in contact with IVFNJ, and they wanted it done faster, to move things along, and try to get her IVF cycle started sooner.  Jess canceled my appointment with urologist and made an earlier one with IVFNJ in Somerset.  She also rescheduled for the urologist minus the semenalysis.  D-day came, and I ventured to the IVFNJ somerset office, produced my sample (hopefully for the last time), and went on my merry way.

Jess called today to get the results.  Surprisingly, they found sperm!  The exact words over the phone, were,”there were a couple, but none of them are any good”.  Hey, I’ll take that!  It’s better than what we thought in the past.  Hopefully this is the beginning of more good news to come!
