Trying to conceive

A lot of you will know my story, but here it is again - got preg in Feb after ttc for 2 months and I think that we were incredibly lucky to get pregnant. Miscarried in April and have been ttc since. I had a full check up and scan and been told that I ovulated and that my body worked properly. DH did a couple of home sperm count tests and they were both negative Poor man is very disappointed! He is going to call our GP tomorrow and get a proper test done and also go to a private clinic to get a full sperm MOT done.
I was wondering if any of your dh's had these tests done and what medication / advice they were given in respect of a low sperm count. If the docs tests prove that his sperm count is very low, do we have to go for IVF or are there any other avenues to explore?
I feel really sad for him , I know that he is very sad and disappointed and I cannot make it any better. I also worry that he will think that I am blaming the whole thing on him - I would never do that and I told him that lots of times, however he thinks that I will end up resenting him if our ttc journey doesn't prove to be successful.
I would appreciate any advice
Thank you ladies!

hi sweetjudy x
my story is something kind of similar, i have a 5yr old from prev relationship, my partner and i have been ttc for nearly 3yrs, i had lap and dye done which showed i had a blocked tube from traumatic delivery of my son, oh did his sperm tests and both came back low at 14million, we finaly havr an apt with the fertility doc again tomorow after being on clomid and it not working but oh has been taking wellman conception tablets and they seem to havr really helped him (need tests to confirm for definate) he had got alot hairier and wanting sex alot more so testosterone has definately risen x maybe worth a try for ur oh? i have been told we will only concieve with ivf but we cant afford it and dont qualify for funding which kind of dnds it for us xx

Thank you very much. DH saw our GP this morning and he sent him for a test at the hospital. The test is booked in for 21st November so fingers crossed. DH started taking Zinc, Selenium, Folic Acid, Vit A,C and E and will also take Ginseng and L-Argenine (not sure if I spelt it right)
Kellx - I am sorry chick, I wish this journey was a lot easier for all of us. Who would have thought that it will take this long to conceive? It should be the easiest and most natural thing! How did your appointment go today?
