DH referred to Urologist - advice please

I was just wondering if anyone else's DH has been referred to a Urologist.

Today was the day I went to see the gynacologist. What a waste of time. My DH has low motility etc and my doctor said he needed to refer me to the gynacologist as well for tests. Anyway to cut a long story short the gynacologist told me today that it was a waste of time my doctor referring me to them as I had tests 4 years ago and everything was fine then and the problems we are experiencing are because of my husbands sperm. So I spent a couple of hours at the hospital for nothing only to be told to go back to my doctors so that they can refer me straight to the fertililty clinic. I went straight to my doctors and luckily they saw me (and my DH) this afternoon. The doctor had to ring his secretary to see who he needed to send us to (he hadnt a clue) and she told him that my DH needs to be seen by a urologist.

I feel like we are being sent from one place to another without anyone knowing where we should really be going. It seems like if it was me with the problem they know where to send me but with it being my DH they havent a clue.

Anyway my hubbie is now being referred to a urologist and I was wondering if anyone elses hubbie has been referred and what can we expect when we eventually get an appointment.

I am 40 now and I just want to be seen by the right person.

Sorry for going on a bit but I am getting more anxious by the day.

Thanks for listening.

Hi Miracle1, I'm so sorry you've been from pillar to post trying to find out who to see about this but if you know your DH has a low count then maybe seeing a Urologist would be useful just as a one off appointment before going to a fertility clinic? I guess that's what your doctor is thinking. My DH saw a Urologist about his count too and they do suggest some ways of improving sperm quality (taking selenium and zinc tablets). If you were fine 4 years ago then I guess the count is the reason why you haven't been conceiving. I hope that you get to the fertility clinic soon though so you can start with the most appropriate tx for you.

good luck and babydust for you x

My dh was sent to one too. They basically did an examination then ultrasound of his bits! It showed a vaircocele and he had an op to have it sorted.

Let us know how he gets on x

Urologist Appointment - 20.10.08

Just received an appointment for my DH to see the urologist at the local hospital. He has low motility and morphology (count is fine apparently). I was just wondering if by going to see a urologist would he/she be able to correct anything if they find anything wrong or whether I am building my hopes up that if there is anything physical wrong they can correct it and his sperm will be normal.

Does anyone know if this has happened to anyone or once his motility and morphology are low there is no real way of improving it significantly.

I think I am just clutching at straws at the moment.

Any help would be appreciated
