Ah, the power of the internet.

Sorry ladies, I forgot to post this morning!

AF came today, a day early. But that's a better outcome for us!

Maybe it's harder if they're non-motile? I'm assuming dnw826, that you were looking at sperm morphology and not just presence of sperm, so you probably had a kick-a$$ scope.
Yes, we had a good scope. We did all the testing-morphology, everything. I would assume you are just doing a quick check under the scope to check for any spermatazoa, however, that's not entirely accurate without a full count. I have never seen them just throw a sample under the slide, and we were the only office in the hospital (LARGE hospital) that did the testing. Interesting.

A quick peek under a scope would not be as accurate for determining any sperm presence without several samples taken, and a good scope. I would be wary of anyone telling me we were in the clear after just looking at one sample with a normal scope. I would request another sample and a good powered one. I might also suggest them spinning it down to get rid of the superfluous fluid to try and see if there are stragglers in the bottom.

The urologist tested dh's with just a simple microscope in office but then sent off the sample as well to check better.

OP I bet you feel a lot better but I also bet you are just a tiny bit sad.

I did not get an update and I had to come back and find out!!!
I'm hoping OP got the answer she wanted, it appears she did.
And I hope OP gets that DH in for his sperm evaluation ASAP so there are not any more scares.

I'm glad this scare is over for you.
