    @DererminedOne good news about the FSH levels. Did your DH take anything or did it just happen with no reason?

    The question I would be asking now is after being told sertoli only is it possible to end up producing sperm? From memory (I am at work don't have the paper) the max for the normal level was around 18.
    @allykat111 I think all clinics are different. We were only told when they came in over the phone because I was calling the urologist all the time hehe. But we did do a followup where they gave us more info. I am not a patient person either.

    @Malak: it really depends on if there is any other pocket tubules that are healthy and producing sperms. The Sertoli cell doesn't produce. If all are Sertoli only then the answer would be no. So one can only hope that there are some good pockets somewhere to be found. High fsh indicates testicular failure. People with high fsh tend to have maturation arrest. But I guess it can be combination of all sort of things.

    hormone level fluctuates throughout the day. FSH is usually done in the morning. It is good to repeat test if in doubt.

    Hope your appt with fs let you moving forward.

    No he hasn't taken anything, so I'm not sure why it's come down? And I will be asking DrP at our appointment on the 19th of March

    So I'm sitting on the couch, alone. Crying. The doc rang, they found sperm, just not good enough quality to freeze. The doc thinks our best option would be for DP to have TESE on the day I have an egg collection for the best possible outcome. That would be good news wouldn't it. But DP has left, my bags are packed and ready to leave. He's not willing to do another procedure. Maybe he'll change his mind, we still have to go see FS on Tuesday. I feel like I've been out in a corner. If I stay I'll resent him for not exhausting all possible avenues to have a biological child. But if I leave, I'm probably not going to have any more children with anyone else. I couldn't imagine finding anyone else I want to have children with. I love him. God I'm so all over the place.

    Default Azoospermia #2

    Nawww allykat111 my heart breaks for you 💞💞💞 he will come around don't be rational it's very difficult news to deal with. Give both of you time to breathe and take this in.
    I think we have all been in a similar situation to this! Give him time to take this in, on a scale of big this huge and we are all here to hear your ups and downs. I'm not sure if this made sense but just give it a few days! I thought about leaving to at one stage but I love my DP so much an couldn't imagine life with out him. Your in shock as well hun be kind to yourself xx

    I'm not sure what to say @allykat111. DP's outcome is the best of all. His azoospermia is clearly due to previous injury and not a genetic problem like most of us here. I would encourage you both to see a marriage counsellor. Perhaps there are disagreements between you two need to sort it out. Is it more you who want to have a baby and he doesn't want to? I went through that with DH at the beginning of our relationship and silly thing is that we can't even have our bio child in the end. All those fighting for nothing. So why is he so upset? I thought he won't do DS/adoption if there is no sperm found. Now, there are sperms. It is just about finding the good quality ones. Obviously, he isn't lack of sperms and TESE is all you need.

    In any case, just let things cool. But again, it isn't my place to say anything more but suggest you to seek professional counselling. Just take it a day at a time and talk about it later.xx

    @allykat111 Oh Luv I'm not surprised you're all over the shop emotionally and your DP will be too. The main thing is they've found sperm which is great so that's one of the major hurdles out the way in my mind

    Allright, it's not good enough to freeze but that doesn't mean it's not good enough to use fresh to fertilise your eggs. Obviously you won't know until you give it a go but at least you have that option if DP comes around. You're both highly emotional at the moment which is understandable, but after you've both had time to calm down and talk to your FS, things may look a whole lot different especially to your DP.

    I don't feel now is the time to make any major life changing decisions for either of you, perhaps you and your DP can have a time out from talking/thinking/deciding anything to do with TTC/IVF/TESE until after you've seen the FS on Tues. That will give both of you some breathing room to think things through individually and if your DP is like mine and most men, they need to go off into their "man cave" in their mind to process everything before they're ready to verbally discuss anything.

    I think there's a good chance he will change his mind once he's had some time to think about it and after talking to the FS and having things explained a bit more to him. Am thinking of you Luv and hoping it all works out for you both

    Oh @allykat111 I am so sorry but on the plus side you do have sperm. Most of that don't even have that.

    I can't imagine it is easy for your DP with this news. He may be feeling as less of a man because he can't give you a child naturally.

    Someone once said this to me .... are you with your partner because you love him or is it that you just want kids with him? Maybe right now he is feeling you just want kids with him no matter how?

    Guys are complex and there is no way to know what they are thinking except for a few rare times when they tell you.

    Give him a few weeks to come around. Maybe seeing the FS will help or maybe he just needs time to digest it all.

    All I can say is that it must be the day for crying

    @bbhope so if a person her all sertoli cells and then their FSH ends normal there is no way they can start to produce sperm again?

    Does it then change from sertoli to late maturation arrest?

    Now I have another question .. why are some people that have zero sperm and NOA with low T and high FSH put on clomid?
