sperm query...

Postby fif » Tue May 31, 2011 5:42 am

TTC for 5 months now, and starting to worry that my DH might have low motility as every time we're done BD and I have my legs and hips elevated I can feel quite a lot of moisture sitting at the opening of my vagina, I'm not sure if it's just lube, etc. but it smells like sperm sometimes... could this be a sign of low motility or that the sperm is never actually making it to my uteris?

I wouldn't worry about it. The spermies have usually left the seman a few min after deposit. The left over fluid is his seman, but the actually sperm are probably long gone. :)

No this isn't a sign of low motility. Certain lubes aren't good for TTC though, just so you know. You can only tell low motility though a sperm analysis.
Me- 27- Tests show everything works perfectly!
DH- 36- SA results = 80 million, 30% motility (3% forward progressive), <1% strict morphology- Diagnosis= severe male factor infertility

Tried naturally for 1.5 years after my DD was born... guess things still don't work right!
