    @bbhope
    my mum tells me to look after myself first coz im going to be doing the hard work. thats why i need to lose weight. we will most likely try spermhope.

    @MrsSIG
    its not culturaly accepted in my culture too with ds, but if theres no other option i will put my cultural differences aside and do what i feel is right. being middle eastern its definitely not accepted.

    I am glad that I no longer live back home. Donor won't have been an option for us. I totally understand the cultural stress behind it all. Even with such an opened minded culture in oz, one has to set his or her comfort zone. For us, telling people aren't a priority so we don't have to worry about the culture as much. It is having a baby or childless. Personal choice. There is no right or wrong. Xx all the best ladies.

    Hi ladies

    We had our consult with dr G today. He looked at DH varicocele and said that its not likely caused the azoo, but there is still a chance (not high) that repairing it could help.

    So the plan of action is: sometime next year DH will have a biopsy done, if the biopsy yields sperm, he will have a varicolectomy on the same day. If not, dr G will proceed to do microTESE on the same day.

    I will be having an ivf cycle concurrently so,
    If any sperm are found they will be used to try and fertilize my eggs straight away.

    I am sad but still hopeful. I'm sad because the doctors all say that DH has high fsh but boarderline high, his inhibin B is ok, his testosterone is just at the lower end of Normal.. Everything is marginal and yet he has Azoospermia. His biggest issue is testes volume which is very low. Dr G said he's found sperm in even smaller testes but it's still so sad . I guess I can't dwell on it.

    We are thinking April/May next year for ivf/microTESE so that DH can give sperm hope, arimidex and vitamins a good chance to boost sperm production

    Default @MrsSIG

    it actually sounds your dh has a great chance of finding sperm. His inhibin B is not bad so thats a good sign that he is producing.

    Sounds like a good plan and hopefully things will work out.

    Did you ask Dr G about spermhope, if he's heard of it?

    @Jojo85 and @MrsSIG I mentioned this earlier in the year but will mention it again since you guys are new here. My fertility specialist said that she sees azoospermia alot in men from the middle east. It made me wonder alot when I heard that.

    I asked our urologist about sperm hope and he hadn't heard of it and he said that there is nothing to lose by trying it.

    I also mentioned it to our fertility specialist and she said that if we get pregnant from it she will write and article about it and us lol.

    We aren't sure yet. He has to have enough annual leave at work to cover him for 3 weeks off work and I have to lose weight.

    Probably the later part of next year.

    My DH is starting a new job next year, so I'm awfully worried about leave too.. Interesting about the Middle East thing. My DH is from South Africa ... I don't know it's just bad luck

    @Jojo85,

    I have hope, but it's sad hearing how small his testes are. He's the only man I've been with so I have nothing to compare to.. I didn't ask dr G about sperm hope, I asked our other FS , but she hadn't heard of jt

    I think it is a small statistic about the Middle East thing. My DH isn't and a lot of other women DH on this thread isn't. One percent of men in the world population has it.

    I am curious about @MrsSIG your case. Because I know someone DH has good inhibin B but azoo. They fixed the variocoles but no luck.
