me and my partner over the last weeks have had heaps of tests done including a semen analysis, a hcg test and blood tests. and it's proved that he doesn't have sperm in his semen and that's why I haven't got pregnant after 9 months trying. according to the doctors i'm completely fine. but he is considered "infertile." we were considering getting a sperm donor to do at home AI with. but we were on our fertility clinics website (repromed) and we discovered they do surgical sperm recovery... and it said even if there is no sperm in the semen eighty percent of the time they can get some through a small procedure, and the sperm they get can be used with ivf and iui. me and him are to young to get ivf, (not sure if there is a age limit
on iui.) but it doesn't seem that expensive.. $600..
Now can anybody tell me the success rates with surgically removed sperm and iui? We are seriously considering it, if it means we could have our own biological child that is ours both. or should we just go with the donor which is free? Thanks
