    Default Microlithiasis?

    Hi all - partner was recently diagnosed with a low count and was sent for a testicular ultrasound to see what's going on. The report has come back with this:

    There is microlithiasis involving both testes. No other ultrasonic abnormality was demonstrated.

    We have a follow up with the specialist on 23 May, but just wanting to find out a little more about what it may mean? I'm starting to feel less and less like we'll be able to avoid IVF between my PCOS and this, I think it's going to be our only option

    Hi Hun, I don't know heaps about it but just that it's about calcium deposits in the testes. It's usually graded and I think it may depend on the severity whether it has an impact on fertility or not x
