    @DeterminedOne: I am guessing if you go ahead with donor. There is no need for more tests on your hubby part. May I know which clinic you are with? Most clinics that i know don't do IUI with donor. They go straight to IVF+ICSI. As for female side of thing, people here probably can tell you more about pre-IVF tests since my FS didn't do much to check me until I miscarried. Anyway, the pre-IVF that I had done are (as far as i can remember):
    ultrasound
    pap smear
    Vit D
    Hep B, C
    HIV
    blood group
    Tyroid function
    Iron studies
    Rubella IgG
    AMH
    syphilis
    chlamydia

    After my miscarriage, there is a long list of tests.....(>10 vials of blood). One i think is extremely important to test is ANA (anti-nuclear antibody). It is rare to be tested positive but here I am. Apparently, this is a standard pre-IVF screening test at some clinics. If test positive, then you can go on to investigate if there is any underlying problem, such as autoimmune disease. Good luck.

    @bphope - thank you for the great advise! I will ask if I have had this test actually if I ring the clinic can they advise me if I've had that test? I've never heard of that test. IVF with ICIS?? What is that? Sorry I'm a bit behind the 8 ball :/ I'm at pivet seeing Dr Anne Jequier. Who is you dr and what clinic are you with? (If you don't mind me asking)

    kind regards

    DeterminedOne.... IVF is just normal in-vitro fertilisation (ie. sperm is put in the petri dish and has to swim itself to the egg), IVF / ICSI is where the sperm is directly injected into the egg, and just has the fertilisation job to do. The ANA is not usually done until you've had three tries at IVF, then they start look for other reasons for failure. It's one thing I would recommend pushing to get done first up.

    MGCBertie: I don't understand why FS doesn't put ANA test as standard until 3 failures. It is such a simple test to rule out problem to begin with.......

    DeterminedOne: Oh...didn't know that you are from Perth as well. Ha...I just assume you are from the East since you mentioned mTESE. I think everyone in Perth with azoo problem went through with Dr. J. She is an expert in the field but old school. Isn't that Dr. J retired this month? She doesn't do mTESE but TESE. We saw her via Pivet last year and had moved on to Sydney with IVFA. She seems to push every NOA patient to go on to the donor route straight away. She has a good point that the chance is slim. We were lucky to find sperms but don't have a live birth (hopefully, not yet).

    PM you the rest....I always get a copy of my test results so I can keep track. Plus, I am so on top of the IVF thing and can pull the number out of my head. Lol. (Not sure if it is a good thing as my life has been consumed by it and sometime feel miserable.......).

    WoW!!! Thank you....that's a lot of info!
    DP didn't have the TESA with Dr J it a long story but we first started with Dr Turner @Hollywood that's where he had the aspiration and TESA done then Hollywood rang and told me sorry your DP has no leyding cell your will need to have donor sperm, then saying here at Hollywood we only have known donor, do you think you DP dad or brother...OMG as if the no sperm thing didn't whack me enough she throws that in to!! I was so unset!! They way she spoke about it was horrible. We then left it for a few month until we sort of came to terms with it, I felt that we needed a second opinion so we went to pivet the to concept the back to pivet... It's take. Us two years just to get to here. We are on the wait list with pivet and have paid our $500 I rang to enquire were we where on the list an apparently we are next so that's why we are seeing Dr J again. I did get the opinion to see Dr Borude at pivet (I think that's how it's spelt) but did t want to tell my story over again. Dr J was apparently retiring but the last phone call I had with pivet they said that she wasn't.....so I dunno! :/
