I "help" my husband we break out the mineral oil (sperm safe lube) I think it makes him feel better about it and he says it's a better sample (lol I doubt it)
When my husband is stressed about something he makes jokes about it. He labeled the brown paper bag he brought his specimen in "DO NOT EAT- NOT LUNCH" then he felt stupid so took it out and carried it in and they made him sit in the waiting room with the cup in his hand until they called him back. LOL
It's stressful for them it's their manhood or whatever. Hopefully your results will come back normal and he won't have to do it again.
i hope so too.
how's everything going with you?
DH did this yesterday too....and my HSG is today....fingers crossed!
hope everything goes well for you jackie!
that part is good....dr said everything is GREAT with his sperm!!
It might be "weird" to say, but congrats with that good news!
that's good news Jackie! we're still waiting for DH's results.
Jackie - I'm sure it must feel empowering to know that at least that part of this whole crazy process is ok.
DH did the same thing!!
Awww Hanna, I'm sorry.
I'm not a TTCer but I work on our other sites (FertileThoughts.com, JustMommies.com) and I've known folks in my own life who've struggled TC and I know it can be a difficult journey.
I just stopped by this thread to say Hello and sprinkle a little baby dust on the Group. I hope to hear some good news from you ladies soon!!
im' so sorry hanna.
