SA results “borderline"

My husband phoned his GP to get his SA results. All his GP said was his results were borderline and to keep ttc for another year (we've been trying for 13 months FFS!)
Just feeling quite confused about the vague results and hubby now assumes everything is fine and doesn't think we have a problem.

Has anyone experienced the same thing?

I've seen on other threads that if results are borderline or they identify any issues, the semen analysis is repeated, generally a few months later due to the amount of time it takes for spermicide to be produced. Could you talk to your GP again to discuss your concerns and ask for another test?

Sorry, autocorrect fail! Should be sperm not spermicide! blush

When my husband got his results he was also given a vague "borderline" verdict and told that they would repeat the test in 4 or 4 months.

He should press for details though - ie borderline in what sense? Number/motility/morphology? Or a combination of these? Am no expert, but "borderline" isn't really giving you much to go on, is it? Ask for some info on the details. Good luck!

Definitely ask for more information, that's not alright. Ask your GP receptionist to print off the results and go collect them, that's what I do with all our results. It's your right to know exactly what they say.
