I saw there was another thread on azoospermia, but it seems nobody is using it any more.
I need some advice on what we should be doing. I live in a regional area with limited medial resources, in fact the nearest fertility specialist is a 7 hour drive or very expensive plane ticket.
So far, my husband has completed two semen analysis tests, both coming back with zero. We met with the GP two days ago and he said our only option is donor sperm ( thank God for online forums or we would of taken this seriously). I had been doing a lot of research and asked to have FSH and testosterone tested and the doctor laughed and said he'd test FSH in women, but men don't have follicles! I am quite sure this would of been the right thing to do? Regardless, he has written a blood test referral for testosterone, LH and TSH. Also, another for an ultrasound of the testes.
Do you think this is on the right track? Has anyone got any advice?
My hubby is 28 if that info helps at all.
Just as an extra vent, I wanted to share something which broke my heart. Two weeks ago, my hubby went to the appt where he received this info alone. He came home crying (had never seen before) and attempted to commit suicide. He has depression, but he is doing well now that we have talked. However, the thing that has me mad is that he told me yesterday that the doctor said to him at that first appointment "You don't have any trade in value for when you wife trades you in when she hears about this". It makes me so mad that I wonder whether to report the doc. When I said to him a couple of days ago that there was still hope he tapped the results on the computer screen and said "he's got nothing. You need a donor. It's not like you take tissue from his arm and magically make a baby".
Sorry this post is so long.
I will appreciate any advice or support. Or possibly even a friend who is going through this as well.
