    Ok thanks. Not sure who does it here I'll find all that out. Yeah I'm sure most Drs do it for good reasons not for money but I'm just scared tbh cause I really want them to find soerm if they do this surgery. We are on the list for a donor so either way we'll have a family but of course if love it if we could both be biological parents

    the histopathology (sertolic cell syndrome) gives the most accurate odds of sperm being found . Bloodwork also gives a rough idea but it's less accurate..

    Biological kids would be wonderful but after having suffered infertility for years, you realize that genes are less important . At the end of the day we just want to be parents. My husband still is not ok with anonymous donor - but it's because we can't get our heads around the child having numerous half siblings from different families . We r ok with embryo donor, or if we could by some miracle get a known donor. We r happy and willing to adopt but I can't face the time and uncertainty that the adoption process has . Too long to wait and no guarantee of a baby.

    Best of luck for your journey

    Default Azoospermia #3

    @jonathant: yes. Ditto MrsSIG. Have a read on the cornell urology website about NOAzoospermia. It mentions about management, success rate etc. If i remember correctly, sertoli cell only has the lowest chance of success. It is the cell for "nursing" the sperm. The fact that they found sperms with Zoe DH is a miracle.

    I know a few FS who brushed off their patients about the surgery. Those would not be the one to with. As i mentioned, the recommended Drs here are certainly willing to help.

    @jonathant: it is hard to tell without knowing the unit that the lab is using. Normally, the test report will have the normal range. Are you able to just get a copy of the report?

    Like bbhope said, without seeing what the reference range for normal is, it is very hard to say. If you get an actual copy of your results - it will have your results plus the range for what is normal.

    For example , one test might list an FSH of 3-9 as normal, others 3-18, they are using different units of measurement, so just the numbers you have provided are difficult to interpret .. Surely your FS has given you an indication as to how your results are though?

    Hi everyone haven't been on here for about a week. I think someone has already mentioned it but has anyone had any dealing with dr turek in USA? I will contact Dr Golovsky too as quite a few of you have recommended him.
    Thanks

    @jonathant: yes, I think there was a lady. I don't remember who. Might have to search through the old thread.
