    Sertoli cell is activated by the FSH. I don't know the detail as how it is regulated. It is at an early stage of forming spermatozoa (aka sperm). Once spermatogenesis has begun, no more Sertoli cells are created. Thus, if you only find sertoli cells only in the testis, it technically is classified as an early maturation arrest. Have a read on wikipedia. It gives you some basic info about sertoli cells.

    If that's so easy to control FSH, most NOA would have been cured. It is not the only hormone that regulates the production of sperms. People with sertoli cell only, maturation arrest etc, have an unknown genetic problem at birth. It is still an active research and no one knows what gene has been misfired during conception or birth. That's what we have been told all along by Drs.

    I dont' know about the clomid. Perhaps the Dr just thinks it can help. When we consulted with DrG, he didn't tell DH to take anything. However, his levels were borderline normal (low end T and high end FSH). It is the inhibin B that he trusted more. FSH seems to have anticorrelation with inhibin B value.

    The normal range will be printed on the path result sheet. Always ask for a copy. From memory, 50--250+ (australia unit).

    Hi all 😊 in a much better state tonight. And still living at home.. After I posted yesterday I dropped my daughter from school to her grans, she didn't need to hear or see the state DP and I were in. But when I got home he was out the door, said he needed to be alone but he'd prefer if I didn't leave. I gave home space, he came home later that night, gave me a big hug, wouldn't let go actually. Said he'll redo the surgery. And he actually talked. Told me his feelings of letting me down because of this. He's angry because he likes to control things, this is out of his control. Now we just have to talk to our FS about what the hell happened. Why the doc who did the procedure chose to take only 1 sample, the nurse in the theatre had told us after the lab technician had asked for another sample but the doc said she was satisfied with what she saw. We're pretty ****ed that we were never informed a different doc was going to do the procedure and that now have to pay for the procedure again because she basically did a **** job. Thank god for the Medicare safety net. Hope everything is going well for all you girls. Xx

    Default Azoospermia #2

    Allykat: glad to hear that DP opened up!!!! Sorry, I was a bit rude about suggesting the marriage counseling. I said it because some men just won't open up and only the professional gets them to. I was very pleased with our donor session because the counselor hit all the concerns DH had. Those he didn't tell me.

    Yes, I think given his condition, even another TESA might have been good enough. But the FS is right that if the sperms from TESA aren't good quality. Going in with TESA to look for good sperms will be the best bet. The good thing is that you will have plenty to store. Many chances. Not like me, one mTESE, one embie and one chance and it failed.

    Hugs. Xx

    Ps: i meant going in with TESE.

So I redone AMH test then DP FSH level has come down from 28 to 22 which is great and gives us more hope!

    We spoke with DrR about going east an with all the research I had with me (and knowledge from you girls....THANKS) he was ok with the decision an happy we where making this (well that's what it seemed) as well as that I asked if he would sign off on the patient interstate travel form which he said there shouldn't be a problem an would have to pass it off with DrY (Yovich)...Fantastic appointment so far!!!
    Then I asked if the donor counselor could write a letter to IVF aust donor counselor so we don't have to go through the whole process of IVFA counseling program...which wasn't a problem either letter will be done an in the mail tomorrow or Friday.....Winning!

    So now we are waiting for DP inhibin B test and my CF test to come back and hopefully it will be back before our appointment at ivfa on the 19th next week.

    On top of that as some of you may or may not know I have a weigh issue and still do but I have lost to date 20kgs and I'm so happy as its one less stress I have to worry about
    @bbhope @Jenniwithanl hope all is well with you guys I think read that it was
    @Malak how are you going?
    That all sounds great. The thing with Azoospermia so much is out of our hands so we become so buoyed by the things we can control. They are definitely little milestones so that's all fantastic! You really do need to stay one step ahead of the specialists as you are the number one person who has your best interests at heart. That all sounds like it's heading in the right direction for you x

    I'm 32, my AMH was 40 when tested last year. The FS said that doesn't concern him as I have PCOS but only mildly. I actually had it severe before I had my daughter but when I got retested a couple years after I had her they said it had almost reversed itself.

    Hi @allykat111 apologies I have just caught up with the thread this morning. Firstly I agree with the girls it is amazing they have found some sperms albeit not good quality. It sounds to me like they could have taken more but clearly she was convinced the tubules looked good. I think going through the mTESE will definitely nett a better result for you. The alternative could be that you go back to a different FS and have the procedure repeated just in case they have better luck the second time.
