SA2

I alluded to the high price of Tuesday's semen analysis in my previous post. It was definately the most expensive orgasm The C has ever had. And I have to say, at this juncture, that it was 90% worth the price tag. (If you are wondering what would make it 100% worth it, it would be if the report comes back with "normal" stamped all over it.) (Oh, that, and if our insurance covers it.)
I waited for The C outside the office building where the clinic was. I was a bit nervous... I mentioned before that this was going to be my first time walking into a fertility clinic (albeit not the one with the much anticipated October 26th appointment,) so I didn't know quite what to expect. Let me say that the foyer blew me away. It was like walking into an upscale lawyer's office, not into a medical joint. It was almost homey, with leather sofas, a wall of books, and a fireplace. And the receptionist was a sweetheart. It was all very discreet. (Although all the couples there obviously knew what the others were there for, as they only schedule SAs at this time of day.)
A nurse called The C and escorted us to the back of the clinic (where I got a peak at many different rooms and was impressed with the impeccability of it all.) We were brought to one of the "Salles d'homme", equiped with leather chair, various paraphernalia, and a sink. Oh, and mood lighting. Our instructions were easy. Do what you have to do, place the sample cup inside another provided cup, and place that one in a secure box in the wall that can only be opened by the clinic, and then depart, leaving the door open. (Wow, no carrying the sample from a bathroom across a waiting room full of people like last time!)
By the time I had locked the door, The C had chosen and popped in a chosen Hustler DVD. The lighting was good, the audio visual aids were a hit, and I had donned appropriate lingerie under my street clothes. Suffice to say it did not take my man long to complete his business. THe place was so comfortable that it almost felt like we were meeting for a nooner.

Thank you up above for expensive priviate labs.

I was so impressed with the clinic that I did schedule an appointment with an RE for me, and a urologist for The C. I will post more on that in another post, because I have to sort out my thoughts on how we are going to proceed.

I'm interested in how you are going to proceed.

we went to one RE appointment and weren't thrilled. We are probably dealing with MF and they were very unresponsive to anything my husband said. He wants to just go see the Urologist and then move on to a different RE if necessary. Is the urologist you scheduled with at the RE's clinic or is it a seperate practice?

Nice... That's even nicer than my R.E.'s room for that, and mine is nice. (although my hubby was lucky we are close enough he could do it at home). I hope the results are good. I hope, I hope.

I'm curious to know if you are going to get in at the new R.E. any faster than the other appt. you have. It strikes me as odd that you have to wait so long for your appt. My R.E. got me in so fast. I hope if you decide to go to the new one that they work out a little better.

The clinic here in Calgary is really not that nice! I always hear talk of all those posh RE offices out there...and I'd like to know, where are they!?!?

Even the clinic I go to in Seattle is pretty shabby! Oh well, in the end it's not the "looks" that matters, it's the CDC stats, etc., etc.....

So, when do you find out the results of the SA?

Wishing you the best of luck with everything,

Yay for private labs! Hubby is having his SA done on Monday and we have no idea what kind of clinic to expect. He's a bit nervous.

With all of the samples my husband has had to provide, at least a dozen, all have been done at home. I wonder how he will do when has to have fun in the little room when we do IVF? I hope that the results for this one will be better.

I love that line: the most expensive orgasm he ever had :-)

I hope you found a subtle way to force-free pomegranate to everyone this weekend. Just say, "I'm concerned about whether you're getting enough antioxidants in your diet..."
