ttc semen analysis.. shocking story from mil. ***update

Ok so dh and I were planning on having a tubal reversal... I have 2 from previous relationships... he has none... went for the sperm count and wound up coming back way too low for us to get pregnant.. his mom tells us a horrific story about his testicles being undescended as a baby and the doctor tying a string to his testicles andthe other end to his leg.... I have searched and searched online... this dr sounds like a nut case to me.. I cant find anything on this kind of practice... he was born in 1977 btw... I guess our chances of a bio child is out the window....



***update*** the first test we went to was at a hospital... it came back that his count was bad.... we went to a urologist and hubby started taking fertility blend for men.... the urologist sent us to an actual fertility clinic in our area... everything came back normal!! So we have an appt April 15th to have our tubal reversal! Oh! The dr said he had heard of the string tied to testicles thing... I guess it was common in the 70s... who knew!

I have two brothers who are sterile, BTW.

My dh didn't have much motility or a high sperm count...yet we had 3 miscarriages and 4 babies. It only takes ONE sperm.

Thank you.... we are stuck on if we are going to pay the $6000 for the reversal if we are going to not be able to conceive. . His count is 9 mil and the motility is 25% after 1 hr and 5% after 4 hrs....
