No semen - Help!!

Postby GracefulAng » Sat Mar 25, 2017 5:55 am

Hello :wave

My DH and I have been TTC for a good while (6+ years) without success, and we were recently referred to fertility clinic which we attended appt a few weeks ago. While there, specialist found out that I had actually ovulated which was a big relief! We were encouraged to use ovulation test kit to try and pinpoint when my next ovulation will be. I am having fun using ovulation test kit - thanks to this kit, I am aware that I would ovulate at end of this weekend.

BUT there is one issue: DH is having a big problem - no matter how hard he tried, he very rarely get semen (if success, he gets a tiny amount).

We have TTC for the past 4 days ::alarm ::xx - no semen at all!!

I am wondering if anyone has similar problem, and what help did they receive?

We will be back at clinic on Monday for my mid-cycle scan and our appt immediately afterwards to discuss my blood test and scan results.

Regards,
Angela

I presume your husband is younger. I'm 60 and the quantity of my semen has diminished to a couple of drops each climax over the years, unless she was doing oral sex on me. Go figure that. It must be the extra excitement of something happening that doesn't take place very often. She still won't let me climax in her mouth even with the decreased amount of semen. Since we are beyond child bearing years the low volume has no effect on us except less mess to clean up. I've had prostate problems and it could just be a retrograde ejaculation which happens all the time when I take flowmax.

So he is a little older than I thought. I know when we are intimate more often like climaxing twice a day or once every day the quantity is less. Have him try "saving up". No sex or masterbating for a few days and see if the quantity improves.

Is there a difference if you allow more time between ejaculations? Back in my days of TTC, every other day was recommended, because it allows a build up to happen, and sperm can live 3 -5 days in the woman's body, so even the days in between sex, conception is possible. Maybe try "less" if you already aren't.
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, find comfort, survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years...then she did something new.

On a side note obviously the quantity of semen is less important than the number of sperm although I would think the more semen the more sperm. I'm surprised the clinic hasn't first checked your husbands sperm count since it would be one of the easier tests to be done.

I'm left scratching my head about a couple of numbers.

I'm not surprised when a 52 year old man wants to father a child, but a 39 year old woman? I hear ya that you have been trying for 6 years, and I wish you all the best. I hope you succeed. Just remember, fertility is elusive and drops precipitously with age.

As to the semen quantity. Yes, I'd suppose that it's mainly because of his age. If he's in generally poor health, you could work on improving that first ... nutrition, hydration, exercise, give up sedentary habits, lose weight (if needed). He probably doesn't use tobacco, but, if he does, that should stop.
Wanting to become like Job, as described in the Bible, the book of Job chapter 29. Hence the screen name.

One possibility is retrograde ejaculation - the semen goes up into the bladder instead of out through the penis. If this is the case his urine may be foamy afterwards.
