I'm sorry to hear his numbers are so low. That must have been so discouraging to hear (hugs)

Did the RE recommend anything else to help his count? Was your dh stressed about giving the sample? Perhaps that could have affected the results?

He wasn't stressed.

I am so sorry about these results and how they are making you feel.

How is DH's general health? Overweight? What about alchohol or caffeine consumption? Since he is in the military I doubt he is a recreational drug user, but throwing it out there just in case. Heat sources such as hot tubs, hot baths, laptops, or heated car seats can impact too. Have docs run a full battery of tests on his bloodwork and urine to check for elevated levels of anything weird or an infection. Good luck, I hope you find an answer!

Hmmm, that's what I figured. Even more perplexing. It's going to be important for you to insist that they run full bloodwork and check for infections. Could be something as surprising as a change in the content of your well water (just as an example). Good luck, I hope you find answers.
