Wow what a long morning! E had his appt at 10:10am and while I really wanted to go with him he said he really didn’t want me to go and I had meetings with work all morning so I stayed home. He left here early because he wasn’t sure where he was going but it turned out that it only took him 10 minutes to get there so he was there an hour early. Then, he waited in the waiting room for 45 minutes and then was brought back and waited in a patience room for another 30. The doctor finally came in and reviewed his blood work and semen analysis and then did his physical exam. He said there is no sign of varicocele and everything looks normal.
He did think that his testosterone was too low and since they couldn’t put him on the typical treatment for low T because we are TTC, they put gave him the middle dose of Clomid and a list of vitamins/things to eat and drink:
1) Multivitamin with 50mg of Zinc
2) Vitamin E IU (400mg)
3) Vitamin C ( 500mg 2xday)
4) Acai berry supplement
5) Eat blueberries
6) Drink real pomegranate juice
7) Eat walnuts or pistachio nuts
We had a lot of the vitamins here but I have a little shopping list for this weekend to pick up. The only bummer is that we have to wait 4 months for a repeat SA and then a recheck. That is 4 full cycles essentially 😦 Oh well, guess there is nothing I can do about that.
Yesterday was my first day of taking the Metformin twice a day. I have been pretty lucky with the Met and haven’t had the GI problems that a lot of women have so far and I saw fine yesterday but I woke up this morning with a serious tummy-ache. The rest of the day I have been fine so it may have been a fluke, I guess a couple more days and I will be able to tell for sure what it is.
I am so glad it is the weekend! Even though E will be gone for his brother’s graduation, I still dont have to work!!!
