    Default Azoospermia AZFc microdeletion

    Hello!
    I have not posted here for awhile but thought i would provide an update and also see if anyone has experience with Y chromosome microdeletions?

    Told last October that DH had only three dead sperm with elevated FSH; specialist in the same appointment, without further investigation, told us that DH would never father his own child.
    DH could not come to terms with DS.

    After four months of emotional turmoil that I am sure you are all familiar with we went and seen another specialist.
    Found the AZFc Y chromosome microdeletion along with 52 live sperm.
    Currently creating an IVF-ICSI schedule so fingers crossed there are still swimmers when the time comes!

    So any experience with microdeletions?

    Thanks for reading, needofhope

    @bbhope
    So far we have had one appointment with Dr Murphy at his private office but he works out of Fertility specialists South in applecross. He has referred us to a urologist who frequently does their sperm retrieval surgeries. Haven't heard from him yet so still unsure of what methods he uses.
    Dr Murphy did seem interested in finding out the cause and ordered a lot of blood tests and the MRI.
    I think because Dh's Fsh is so high that points to NOA.
    What clinic and specialists have you seen in Perth?

    @needofhope: it was a long time ago since I read about micro deletion. I think only one type of microdeletuon is recommended to proceed due to chance of bad genetic passing to the offspring. Dr G did mention that to me but I don't remember which one. It could be the AZFc microdeletion. Most genetic azoo will need to go through genetic counselling for various reasons. Does your clinic do that?
    @HbName: we saw an andrologist who is very wel known in male infertility field. But she retired. Long story. We didn't proceed here in WA for many reasons. We consulted with dr G via phone and agreed to do the mtese with him straight away. We know dh diagnosis. If we were to do one ultimate surgery, that's what we wanted to do. That's the best decision ever. Good clinic and my fs is very nice. A few women here who went through the same route to the east felt the same regarding service there is better thab clinics here.

    Micro dissection is not the same as tese which most FS know how to do it.

    All the best.

    Hi all, I haven't posted on this forum in aaages. I didn't have the strength to write much in case things went wrong. For those who don't know, my hubby has NOA (unexplained), he was on arimidex for almost a year as well as several other non prescribed treatments. I am 28 with no fertility issues (that we know). Last August we had a microTESE combined with an IVF cycle. Thankfully dr golovsky found sperm (not much , but enough to fertilize my eggs). Our fresh transfer took and I'm happy to say my baby boy was born today. It's been a rollercoaster. My pregnancy was NOT easy- I had several huge hemorrhages which were super scary..was on bed rest for a while, and was induced at 39 weeks for preeclampsia risk .. despite it, we r in love. Our miracle is here and we r forever thankful . Hope my story gives others hope

    I honestly don't know bbhope, dr G never told us, he just said he found sperm and we never asked (although I often wonder about it).. my suspicion is maturation arrest though given his fsh was only boarder line high...

    Default Progress

    Hi everyone. I haven't been on here in a while.
    Just wanted to update you all on mine and my wife's progress.
    We are going down the donor path. Unfortunately, the first IUI cycle wasn't successful. My wife had the second implantation a couple of weeks ago. We were so excited as she was 3 days late and had pregnancy symptoms then she got her period devastated AGAIN.
    We now have to do ICSI. Has anyone else had experience with this? Mentally and financially drained at the moment.

    @jonathant: I am sorry that it didn't work. I find it so cruel in reality sometime. Wheb you finally moved onto donor and thought it was the answer straight away, then it still took few rounds to get a BFP. We have a warrior on this thread who did something like 11 rounds ivf with donor to get the take home baby!

    Anyway. I just saw your post. I don't get on here much anymore. My friend was also at the same clinic as you and was pushed for iui. After many failed attempts only to find out iui won't work due to a medical condition. the dr didn't check before hand! What a waste of money. They were very upset. For a lot of us, iui wasn't even an option with donor. Longer wait time etc. while one might say the dr wants more money with ivf, the success rate is better. With interstate, I would rather put back an embryo than taking iui chance. If I remember correctly, Other than one lady who did iui with donor through the clinic, all of us did icsi straight away.

    @jonathant sorry to hear about your IUI. We went straight for ICSI due to unrelated issues with me.

    People who haven't been through it don't understand how hard it is mentally and you can't really prepare yourself for it either. Going through the disappointment month after month (and let's be honest, also secretly hoping for a miracle to fall naturally month after month) is draining. My clinic offers free counseling, even after your compulsory donor counseling. Something to think about....
