Welcome ICLW'ers (otherwise known as IComLeavWe)!! So glad you found your way over! Here's a little bit about us and the tightrope we currently find ourselves walking. We recently found out that hubby has low everything: count, volume, motility and 0% normal morphology. That last bit is obviously the most disconcerting. Thanks to Murgdan's super spiffy blog (best of luck today, btw!), I believe this is called oligoastenoteratozoospermia, but we'll find out for sure next week.
Hubby also suffers from chronic depression. The catch there is that when the meds are working well, life is almost "normal." Of course, it is highly likely that those same meds are causing our MFI problem in whole or in part. Going off the meds is a non-option. Changing them considerably is an almost equal non-option. So, I'm not really sure where that leaves us. We've been waiting about a month for the first urologist appointment, but I'm happy to say that it's almost here! 8/25 can't get here fast enough, because I'm driving myself crazy in the meantime!
So ICLW'ers, I have a question(s) for you. I know that many of you have dealt with MFI and I appreciate your "been there, done that" expertise. What questions should we ask at the first appointment? What should we expect to hear/have done?
(By the way, the hand read to catch the wavering tightrope walker in the picture above represents all of you....my dear online friends (from the blogosphere and iV. I'm so very grateful to have each of you in my life. I learn and gain strength from you every single day! Thank you for offering your experiences and insights in such honest and vulnerable ways! Cheesy? Maybe. True? YES!) (pic from: http://zfginc.com/tightrope.jpg)
