Hi, my other half had his semen analysis done as we have been trying for a child for around 2 years now... After racing to the hospital with minutes to spare before it apparently died we finally got seen. After a week he finally got a Phone call with his results stating that there was no sperm in the fluid but the fluid it lives in was brilliant and was a good sample... But classed it as an invalid result and have to test again? We are now both petrified as have no idea what this means? Has he got sperm at all? Did they die?
Could someone please give me some advice if this has happened to you or know anything about it.
Thank you sad

I would try not to worry until another test is done.
Is he diabetic or anything?

Nope he's really healthy. No infertility in his family so I'm just really worried

We had really low sperm count. Totally unexpected the only associations i have seen are genetic ie cystic fibrosis and other disorders that mean sperm tubes can have a gap so my DH was tested for those. And i have seen diabetes and sperm go in urine.
Other causes of low count undescended testicles as a baby, varicocele
Its always possible the lab have gone wrong

Dp has done a number of sperm tests - all but one of them was good. The bad v low sperm one the dr asked a sensitive q about did he 'nearly' miss and catch and get the last bit! He blushed and said that was the case! My bil also out of a few tests had one v low one ( didn't ask technical details there) so I would just repeat and take it from there. Can it be done at the hospital!

He needs to do the test in hospital rather than at home if the sample was produced there. Sperms need to be tested as soon as possible after the sample has been produced. I am not really surprised that the sample was declared invalid.

I would not worry unduly; one poor result is in no way fully conclusive of there being male factor issues.

Well that's put a big relief. He did it at home but he did say he was under pressure. So I'll how him your replies an hopefully he feels abit better. Fingers crossed it was just a cock up at the lab smile x
