    Just an Update
    We have found out today that DH has Klinefelter syndrome which means to our disappointment that he will never father a child of his own. SO the next step will mean a sperm donor is a must for us.

    Perthcpl: Oh hon i am so sorry to hear this news and know how devastated you must be. If you and your DH decide to go down the donor route i would recommend you get onto the waiting list ASAP as they can be quite lengthy and the process takes a long time to get through with regards to counselling, waiting periods etc.
    You are in my thoughts

    Perthclp - I have thought of you often and wander how your journey has been going. I am truly so sorry to hear your results and wish nothing but the best for you and your DH for this next part of your journey.
    Bubhub is an amazing tool and I really recommend using it. You'll find other people in the same or similar position and you can draw strength and knowledge from their stories.

    I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your crappy news! I know how you are feeling right now and it just sucks!
    Believe it or not you won't feel this way forever!

    We thought our world had collapsed around us but are now happily doing ICSI with a donor.

    If you need any info or just want to talk PM me!

    Hi all

    My partner & I have been trying for 9 mths & he's just had 2x tests come back with azoospermia. This is possibly the most challenging emotional roller coaster I've ever been on. Reading this thread does reassure me that there's hope, but I gotta say, I'm feeling pretty gutted that we're in this boat. It doesn't seem fair that so many people get their babes without the financial and emotional expense.... My biggest worry now is how much this is going to cost. We are both fully prepared to change our lifestyle and do whatever it takes - having a family together is our biggest priority. I just never thought I'd be contemplating things like taking out a loan to have a baby.

    I'm sorry I just needed some sort of support from somewhere.

    Thanks,
    Jess :-)

    Default Hi Jess

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble falling pregnant. Those results really are not nice to receive. I was one of the original posters on this board as we got the same bad news. We were just starting our first cycle after hubby had a biopsy to retrieve some sperm.

    I'm pleased to be able to say I gave birth to our beautiful daughter Molly in Jan this year after 4 cycles of ICSI. I know another lady on here who also recently had a baby too.

    The last thing you want to deal with when wanting children is this but I can assure you it is worth every minute of heartache when you get to hold your baby in your arms. I wouldn't change a thing even if I could because then I wouldn't have Molly.

    I know it'll be a difficult road ahead for you but you'll be surprised how well you will cope. My advice is to stay positive no matter what. It really is a miracle what they can do these days to help with this issue.

    We will be trying again next year and I'm actually looking forward to the experience again. It really is amazing what you learn. We got to see Molly when she was just an embryo and that is not something everyone can say.

    If I can help with anything just let me know...x

    Motochic - I am so sorry you and your partner have received this news. I know and remember how extremely scary, heartbreaking & just scary the news was.

    Do you know when he is going to have a biopsy done to see if there is sperm in there?? Once you find out these results you'll have a better understanding of which path you'll take & what your next step is... Hopefully it's sooner rather than later. It's the not knowing that is the killer.

    We too now have our beautiful little Miracle bub who was born in jan. We, hubby and I, had to take that journey to get to our bubba...

    Hub bub really helped me through our journey. Be sure to use it.

    If you have anymore questions please don't hesitate to ask away... I know I did.

    Best of luck xx

    Hi Jess,

    So sorry to hear of your news. I totally understand - we went through the same thing last year. Unfortunately, a biopsy and microdisection still did not find any sperm for my DH. They have no reason why, but he has Sertoli cell only syndrome, and just doesn't produce sperm.

    We are going down the ICSI path with donor sperm. We had one cycle already, and off again next month.

    Fingers crosssed you have better news. Where do you live? Will you be doing a biopsy?

    Thanks so much guys, and congrats on your bubs!! We saw a specialist this morning and are having blood tests & an ultrasound done, then back to see about a Biopsy. We are in Ipswich, Qld, and seeing Prof. Bruce Dunphy at Bubtree/Monash IVF.

    Has anyone done IVF/ICSI outside Qld? Is it covered by Medicare elsewhere in Australia? We were pretty gobsmacked by the potential costs we're up for.
