    And I had 12 follicles on my left ovary and was cycling at the time of ultrasound with a dominant on my right ovary it's so hard to google and read into everything but the best advice and knowledge you get is from the doctors and nurses at the Fertility clinic... Well that's my experience my doctor takes emails so ask if you can email anything after your first appointment

    @MrsSIG Hi ::waves:: I'd like to say welcome but I don't think anyone wants to be welcomed to this thread.
    Ok so a bit about me....ttc since 2012 nothing was happening I have a history of CIN1 so I thought I'd go get check and asked dh if he could to results came back absolutely devastating...Dh azoo!! Totally shocked and broken we started our journey! Bloods where ran and it had came back high fsH 28 testosterone boarder line. Booked into see male fertility specialist who advised on having the aspiration first which was not successful. Next was the biopsy which came back dh had Sertoli cell only which mean he doesn't have leyding cells, was advised over the phone dh could my have bio children and adoption or donor would've the only option. Dh have NOA he did not have a history of any medical condition and the only thing he does remember was getting a hit to the jewels when he was young then jumping a fence and hurting them when he was about 21-22. All of this took a lot of time as wait list where long and app took ages, 2.5yrs on I'd done more research and talk to ppl on this forum and decided we need to give it one last try with mtese so we went to ivfa and had DR Persson who was fantastic he looked after my egg collections and dh mtese on the same day. I couldn't have asked for a better Dr very thorough and a nice person who made me feel like a person not a number. I had boarder line amh 14.6 and I think anything under 13.something is a worry. They collected 9 eggs and 7 made it to fertilization and only 5 made Otto 5 day blast. Unfortunately DrP had no success with the mtese and his tubules where life less absolutely heart broken but we went ahead with donor and now I'm nearly 23 weeks. I must say tho accepting the donor path is a difficult choice and something that needs to be considered with a lot of thought. We went though counseling through the 2.5 yrs and now we especially dh is still seeing a psychologist that specializes in ivf and azoo. Things are getting easier but it hasn't been an easy road but for some reason our relationship has changed for the better. We always wanted a to start a family like most ppl and now finally it's starting to come together. I always wonder what the future will hold but no matter what this lil baby will be loved by both of us, we have been given a gift and I believe if it wasn't mention to be we would still be trying. Ask all the question do all the research but one thing give yourself and dh time to grieve this is a hard road. xxxx

    @MrsSIG There isn't impossible with PCo. It does add in complication. It is difficult because you only get one chance to get the cycle right. MTESE is performed simultaneously with an egg collection. It is the egg quality not quantity. My advice is do your research, be proactive and hopefully u have a good FS.

    MrsSIG

    Sorry that you have to join us here in the club but here everyone has a wealth of information.

    My husband has NOA, no known cause just a random misfire when he was in utero. Unfortunately for some of us we will never have a definite answer for what caused it.

    After undergoing the MTESE with Dr Glovosky and Dr Perrsson and not finding any sperm we had a good cry and not long after decided donor was our answer to having a family.

    We now have a DS who is beautiful and so full of life we couldn't imagine not having him.

    Wherever your path takes you, you will have plenty of support here

    Hi @two souls, @Determined One, it seems like everyone here has gone the long yards and has ended up having to use donor sperm.. I guess it's good to know straight up. I've tried breaking the idea to DH but he won't hear of it at all. He has so much hope that this will work out and we will find sperm. I love him so much, and I want it to work out for his sake more because I don't want him to feel the hurt he will if there is nothing there

    I know our odds aren't great tho, he has pretty small testes and his fsh is high, so only time will tell... I'll keep hoping and praying for a miracle though

    @MrsSIG: Find a good counsellor. Unfortunately, i don't a good one in NSW. Perhaps sydney ladies can recommend. I find it important to manage expectation. Be cautiously optimistic. We did it differently than most of the ladies here. We didnt have a donor back up at all when doing mTESE. We wanted to go on a baby step because DH wasn't keen to use donor. Once we tried everything, DH came to term with it. If anything, it took me a lot longer. It took us 3 yrs+ to get this far and with a bubba in our arms.

    Yes, miracle does happen. Our first attempt was a miracle. It is just very sad that it doesn't result in a live birth. I was told that if the general success rate for mTESE is 20%, the live birth rate is only half of that. So we didn't beat the last 10% (1 in 10). The success rate is highly depends on the diagnosis.

    All the best for whatever you two decide to do. We are here to support.

    Default Azoospermia #2

    @MrsSIG.

    My DH has 'sertoli only syndrome', a Type of NOA he was born with. I was devastated when we found out and DH took the news much better.
    We were living in Perth, where they don't do mTESE, so we first did a TESA. They only found 1 abnormal sperm. After we moved to Sydney, we transferred to IVFA we saw Dr Golovski. He is lovely! Because they found 1 abnormal sperm, it was recommended to try mTESE, which we did but had Donor sperm in back up. The didn't find any sperm.

    I am lucky in the sense that my DH has been onboard with donor sperm from the beginning.

    I admit, I have always been a little worried as to how DH would actually feel towards the baby... Well after we lost Johnny last week (I was 24weeks), it was humbling (and very bitter sweet!) to see that my DH was in just as much pain as I was, so this has cleared any worry I previously had.

    Like the other girls have said... It is a long, tough journey to come to terms with NOA. the mTESE gave us the piece of mind we needed to move on.
    Every DH deals with it differently, but I really found a counsellor helped a lot.

    Are you in Sydney?
    I'm a IVFA at Kogarah (in Sydney). The counsellor we saw there was great! I can't remember her name though...
