    Default Fertility and chemotherapy

    Hi everyone. I hope someone can offer advice.
    I'm 28 and I live in Perth. My wife an I have been trying to conceive. I have been diagnosed with azoospermia after 2 negative semen analysis. I had a testicular biopsy which showed no sperm. I had 2 brain tumours as a child and had to have chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Has anyone else had similar history and successfully fathered a child?
    Thanks so much.
    Johnathan

    My brother had chemo and radio and fathered a child! Depends on the 'cocktail' he had AVBD. It's not the same for all drugs. AVBD is known for good fertility prognosis. Good luck!

    Sorry to hear your feeling so terrible. Google AVBD for H. Lymphoma and it will tell you the 4 drugs used in the cocktail. The cocktail is used because of the good fertility prognosis. I also had AVBD and have carried a child successfully and am pregnant with a 2nd. Good luck!
