My husband (left) once told me we didn’t have to worry about having babies… Because he had Super Sperm. ✌️ 👊
The definition of Super Sperm (for those of us who aren’t familiar 🙄) : “The ability to conquer any birth control method – including the Mirena IUD”. He further informed me that Super Sperm “eat” their way through IUDs.
Yes. He was teasing me. Sperm can’t eat IUDs. However, it is possible that despite his best guess your infertility as a couple might have a contributing male factor.
Infertility can be broken down as being:
- 33% Female Factor 👠
- 33% Combined (combination of male and female factors 👠👔
- 33% MALE Factor. Yes. It is possible that it could be him alone 👔
The recommendation is to have BOTH the male and female evaluated early on in the work up.
For him – this means giving a semen sample. It’s (relatively) cheap. It’s easy. And it’s necessary. ⛏
💄Tip: His ego is easily bruised… So be firm about getting him the evaluation, but go easy – it’s tough for him too. 🤕#supersperm
