    Hi everyone!

    I hope you're all doing well.

    It has been a while, thought I'd check back in to let you know our news.

    My DH has NOA, the specialists say it is genetic (hormones all normal, no blockages), have done all the tests and can't seem to find out what has caused it. It's just one of those things.

    Our first IVF cycle yielded terrible results, TESA found no motile sperm and only just enough sperm (all immotile) to fertilise my 9 eggs. We had 3 fertilise, fresh transfer BFN, nothing to freeze as remaining embryos did not progress.

    We decided to do one more cycle before thinking about our other options.

    I kept on taking Co Enzyme Q10, and my FS recommended starting Melatonin (the Melatonin is the only thing I did differently this cycle). My FS said that in HER experience, she gets around 1 more fertilised egg per IVF cycle when the patient uses Melatonin. That 1 egg could make all the difference, so I was very eager to try it.

    Our 2nd IVF cycle was MUCH better!! TESA on both sides found 20 sperm, some of which were twitching! We got 10 eggs and 7 fertilised! Our first fresh transfer was BFN, but 2nd transfer (FET) worked I also took Pregnyl for luteal support.

    Just wanted to share that with you all, as I have received so much support and great ideas from this site, and wanted to let people know success stories are possible, and to not give up hope!

    @Lively: that's very good news. The fact that they found sperms with tesa is very good news. Do u think lifestyle could have contributed to DH azoo? Have he done any genetic testing like micro deletion? Did he have undescended testes when he was young? Mump? Sorry for asking millions questions. I am just curious to know under what conditions for some NOA men can have sperms with TESA alone.

    Congrats! Wish an uneventful pregnancy.

    Congratulations @Lively!!
    Hope ur pregnancy is uneventful!!

    Your case does seem unique. I'm also interested to know what else doctors have said about ur DH case because most NOA patients need microTESE. your DH didn't have high fsh ?

    Update from me: I had a transfer of two donor hatching blasts in Czech on the 21st March, arrived in Australia on 25th, and the next day got a squinter BFP at 4.5dp5dt that got darker each day. Had a beta yesterday at 9.5dpt (time difference with Europe causing the 0.5 day, lol), and my hcg was 273. Waiting on my repeat beta in a couple of days, then if that's okay, I have a viability scan booked on 28th April... so far away!

    As this was out last attempt ever for #2, I can't even let myself get excited yet as I'm so worried I'm going to lose it. But generally I feel a lot calmer than I did with my DS, cause of course I'm so busy with him that I forget I'm pregnant a lot of the time.

    Good to hear that you have good news to share! @Sariele. Welcome back. Is this egg donor round?

    Thanks. These were donor embryos, created from anonymous egg and sperm donors. These two were created and frozen in Czech last October, according to the paperwork they gave me! Kind of cool.

    Did people read the news article about the embryo donor recipient who allegedly hid the birth of the donor child from the donors?

    As someone who is seriously considering embryo donation as opposed to sperrm donation as our back up plan this is very upsetting because it will make things much harder for all of us.

    I have just googled and read about it. It is the condition that the couple agreed when they received the embryos. In a way, yes, this is disturbing. Not all donors want to have contact, though.
    @MrsSIG: have you checked with the clinic that embryo donation is allowed in your case? As far as i remember, both of you hae to be infertile in order to go on the embryo donation list if via a clinic.

    I actually haven't asked our clinic directly, but will do so - I read the handbook on embryo donation and it doesn't stipulate both partners need to be infertilite... I need to confirm though..as DH is South African, we might even go there for embryo donation- but I don't even know if it's an option in SA.

    In this scenario - the both the donor and recipient seem to have changed their minds about what was agreed to - very disturbing indeed..i recon more stringent counseling will be mandated from now
