Unfortunatelyfor my partner and I, we are in the same azoospermia as a lot of you. The lastthing that you want to here when you’re trying to conceive is ‘no sperm found’
I will givea little background on DH and myself. I fell pregnant at 19 years old andbecome a mummy to one at beautiful girl at 20. The relationship with mydaughters father ended and found myself as a single mother @ 20 with a 6 weekold baby. Fast forward a year later and Imet my DH and sparks flew. I was 21 and he was 23 and become an instant daddyto my daughter. We brought a house and moved in together and started trying fora baby when my daughter was 3.
After a yearand a half, and still no baby, we headed off to our GP for some test. Bloodwork come back fine for both of us but sperm sample came back as nil. Anothersample was requested as well as a referral to a FS. 2nd sample cameback as nil.
FS ordermore blood test for both of us as well as another semen sample from DH and a CFblood test. After a nil reading from both, we went ahead with the needle aspirationin the testies. This also did not work. To say the least DH was devastated andthe journey had stopped. Fast forwarded 2 years and DH is now 30. We decide totake the next step. We signed up with a new clinic and new FS who referred us toDr Golovsky saying that he was who we needed. He ordered blood test for both DH and I
We saw DrGolovsky on Dec 13 and after going over DH results he said that micro dissectionis the next step for us. More blood test for DH was order to check FSH levelsas his had always been in range but low, and well as something else (I have completelyforgotten the name) FSH was 5.9 and the other this was 110 which both Dr G and myFS were happy about. I was sent back offto IVF Aust @ St George on 14th of Jan 14 and we went over theIVF/ICIS process. We were sent home to await the phone call on when it willbegin.
Yesterday I receivedthe phone call. DH surgery is on the 4th of April and I will startinjections on the 22nd of March. I am over the moon that things arefinally happening. This process started over 5 and a half years ago and in 2and a half short months we will finally know if DH has sperm. The last nearly24 hours has brought out a range of emotions. I have cried, I have laughed, butmost importantly I feel like we are finally getting somewhere.
Now, we justhave to wait!
