    @Jenniwithanl: Glad you enjoy the motherhood. My DH NOA is certainly caused by a medical condition. It is just very unfortunate that the Dr back then didn't fix the problem sooner. However, i am not sure if my MIL drank large amount of soymilk during pregnancy and thus the problem. He isn't an asian origin so i doubt that would be the case. I actually looked into radiation after chernobyl disaster. BUT this would mean that a world wide problem rather than an isolated incident.

    I am not the in mood to enjoy being a motherhood at the moment. Bub is having stomach/painful gas problem. A normally happy baby is very unsettled and upset. I changed the formula. I don't know what else to do. It is so heartache to see him suffering everytime he has an episode of passing gas. It has been more than a week now. We hesitate to bring him to the hospital before the first set of needle.

    Hey bbhope try a Chiro for gas problems and constipation for bubs... It's amazing what a tiny weeny bit of manipulation does and has made such a difference for so many friends whose bubs have had similar issues... Good luck x

    Hi,
    My DH wouldn't have had soy or soy products. His mother would have had a VERY 'Australian' diet... Steak and 2 Veg! He has 'sertoli only' which is a developmental issue - he never developed ( or was never born with?) the stem cells to produce sperm.

    I also have some very sad news. A week ago we had our 24 week scan and the baby no longer had a heartbeat. We were induced and Johnny was born sleeping last Saturday night.

    It's now a week on and we're getting there slowly. We have good days and bad days. But most of all I'm just sick of being a minority statistic! First of all IVF, then needing donor sperm and now having a stillborn! It never ends! (Sorry I'm having an 'angry' day today)

    I am sorry to hear @Barca07. Big hugs! I totally get what you meant by small statistic. I felt the same when I had the first chemical pregnancy. I still have the grief from time to time and certainly can't imagine what you have to go through. I hope they find out what'd happened to him to bring a closure to you both. Make sure you both seek support whenever you need it. We are here on BH if you want to talk.

    Hi all, I'm New here and this is my first post.
    My DH has just been diagnosed with non-obstructive Azoospermia. His fsh is 13.4 and his testes r quite small. Just wondering if anyone has any success with finding sperm after a microTESE in a similar situation?

    DH and I are quite heartbroken at the
    moment and are looking for any hope we can find.
    DH ordered spermhope, and I feel horrible because he thinks that will work and I feel like he will be let down when it doesn't.

    Donor sperm is not an option for us, so any success stories would be greatly appreciated.

    @MrsSIG my DH is having spermhope too. Donor sperm is not an option for us either. We figured for a few hundred $$ we may as well give spermhope a shot. I have read some success stories on it too with mTESE.

    My DH had high FSH level. If you want to find out why he has no sperm go TESA first if it doesn't bother you then go straight to mTESE. We wanted to know what the cause was so did TESA. If we could do it all over again I am not sure if we would do a TESA just because my DH ended up in hospital twice afterwards with haematoma and almost 12 months later he still has some pain - usually in the hot weather.

    @MrsSIG: I am sorry to hear you have to join us here on this thread. It is a hard breaking news. As Malak suggested, TESA is probably the less invasive procedure to find out the diagnosis. It can give you an indicator of what you are dealing with and the success rate for mTESE. You will still need to do mTESE eventually. It is once and for all surgery. A closure.

    My DH has all the blood work comes back normal. His NOA is caused by a medical reason. While the dr successfully retrieved sperms via mTESE, the prognosis was quite bad and the quality was in question. Only 3 was usable. Nope, i am not missing zeros at the end. We ended up with two chemical pregnancies. Hope but yet heartbroken. It still is.

    We were like you. Donor sperm was not an option. However, as we tried everything and ran out of option, we opened to the idea of donor. It is NOT an easy decision and we have had many counselling sessions. If you read back this thread 3 yrs ago, you could see how much we struggled to come to term with using donor. I am now having a 4w old. No regret. I should mention that getting pregnant might also a challenge if you are a bit older or with lower ovarian reserve. In a grand scheme, the decision of using the donor is only one of the hurdles of this journey. I am not trying to convince you one way or the other. Only you and DH should decide but leave the option open if needs be. See a good counsellor is very important.

    I see that you are in NSW. You certainly can find a good surgeon to do the mTESE. xx
