Smik You have had a rough run, vent away. When my DH and I found out about the azo it was completely out of the blue. I have irregular cycles so it was assumed the problem was with me, but my GP couldn’t give me a referral without a sperm test. I wasn’t even with DH when he went to pick up the results. Instead he called and told me when I was out at dinner with work colleges. Don’t know if there is a good way to find out. We did the TESE surgery with Dr G and didn’t have any luck I do feel better knowing we exhausted all avenues there. It’s great that you have people who offered to donate. My DH doesn’t have a good relationship with his brother and we have decided to go down the anon donor path, while it was really daunting to begin with I’m comfortable with it now. It is a long process though for both known and unknown donors. Best of luck with the surgery.
bbhope The initial shock is hard, take some time to process it. I’m afraid I don’t know the specialists in Perth. Feel free to join us. It does help to lighten the load.
AFM – I'm on day 8 and had my second blood test this morning. My oestrogen levels are slow to rise again so they will probably postpone my EPU from Friday to Monday I won’t find out until my first scan on Wednesday. More side effects this time, headaches etc but it is all manageable. I’ve just come back from a weekend in the Southern Highlands with family. It is so pretty there this time of year, it has done wonders in bringing down my stress levels.
