    Thank you @Felicia

    We were told there was "no result".. in my thoughts this meant the reversal was a failure. Although I could be (and am hopefully) wrong. I was crushed when my husband told me there was no result. I'm sure there is a chance of a result at 6 months otherwise there is no reason why they would do it... however.. I don't see us being the exception to the rule. I'm at a bit of a loss, but I should wait for the specialist to tell us our options I guess!

    Hi Purityrach,
    I hope you get a great result at 6 months. Dtd every second day is really the best thing you can do and if that doesn't work then decide your next option. If it were me, knowing what I do now, I would go straight to ICSI with MTESE. But there's no guarantee either way. As I mentioned, we have just done our first round which ended in BFN but I'm hoping the Little soldier we have on ice works for us. The waiting is the worst and you never get used to it 😩 there's always another pregnancy announcement when you feel so far from your dream. I truly hope you have some luck soon x

    I must also add, doing IVF, even though still a huge emotional roller coaster, has felt better than the 18months TTC naturally. It feels like a real chance and in someone else's hands. There's an embryo already there, that's me and him, and it just has to implant and stick. All those months trying to pin point ovulation, temp track, SAs, DTD every second day and second guessing if it's too much or too little, opks, bfns, and it's all in the hands of someone that only knows so much, my hands. Ithe day we started IVF a weight lifted off my shoulders. And even though the BFN was devastating, I still feel I have more chance than I ever have.

    All the best again and hopefully the right choice for you is clear and works xx

    Hi Still hopefull !

    Just wanted to jump as my story is very similar to yours. I am so sorry you had a BFN on your first round, but hang in there. It is a rollercoaster. My husbands VR also scarred over in the first 12 mths and we completed IVF-ICSI with TESA. On the day he had a zero sperm count. He found the TESA much easier than the VR and our IVF doctor assured us there is no where near the level of damange the VR doctor sells you. Hey they are both selling you their services aren't they !
    We were lucky enough to conceive on our first round and my son is now 15 mths old. I wish you all the luck in the world with your frozen transfer x x x Bring on March ! xx

    Just wanted to add my story here. Hubby had his VR in Sep 2013 by Dr Lekich. Our first count was 5mil (didn't tell us motility was bad) 6 month count was 65million! (Again did I tell us poor motility 98%!)
    9 month count was 25mil and poor motility and then we had a FS do a count in October. Just 3 million and 98% abnormal

    It would seem they are scarring over and from what I have read this is very common. I went the VR route thinking it was a permanent solution and we could have more if we wanted, but have seen lots of people lucky enough to fall in the first year, and then can't after 2 years. I've also seen quite a few not working at all and going ivf anyway.

    So after 18months ttc we just had our first round of ICSI and the outcome was BFN and just one frozen embryo to pin my hopes on for transfer in March. The waiting is killing me. Only a week since I found out it's BFN.

    If I could do it again, I think I would have done ICSI from the start. But can't say how that would have turned out. At least our 10grand gave us enough sperm for hubby to provide his sample naturally last month but who knows if the FET doesn't work.

    I wish I had a success story, but I don't. And I wish I read more story's like mine before making the VR decision. For a price update, Metrocentre cost us 10k with $1700 back from Medicare (no PHI).

    All the best ladies and I hope you are more successful than us x

    Hi @purityrach, so sorry to hear about the failed SA, what was Dr Woolcotts explanation for that? I don't recall the statistics now but I'm sure the success rates were extremely high, so I'd be wanting to know more. xx

    We were Dr Woolcott, our 10 week SA showed a count of 15 million, though morphology and motility was not requested... weird! Next SA is on the 16th of feb so will keep you updated

    Thank you hun. I queried with our doctor as to why motility and morphology were not tested for, he showed no concern and said that its normal not to test any further at this stage. Then at our follow up he queried why it hadn't been done?! I'm angry at myself for not pushing it further, and sad that if there are major motility/morphology issues that we e just wasted all this, and all the stress of ttc for nothing!

    Default TTC after Vasectomy Reversal

    Well well well!! To say I am mad would be an understatement. I finally got a copy of the first SA today, previously we had telephone confirmation from Dr Woolcott, though all that was discussed was the count, no mention of the other results. His words exactly "the next test I expect you to be doing is a pregnancy test" After 2 written requests for his results to be sent to our doctor I can now see that motility and morphology were done...
    13 million
    5% motility
    60% abnormal forms, mostly head defects.
    Findings- oligospermia, reduced motility, abnormal morphology, suggest repeat to confirm.
    I'm mad at Dr Woolcott for not discussing all results with OH, I'm mad at Dr Woolcotts rooms for making it so difficult to get a hard copy of the results, and mostly mad at myself for ignoring my gut feeling and not pushing harder to follow it up!
