Hi there; I remember your posts from a couple of months ago; wondered how you were getting on!

It is totally frustrating not knowing, I know how you feel. We were lucky in that our urologist was a male infertility specialist & knew loads about it. DH's testicles were normal sized & he expected to get sperm, but there wasn't any. It's sertoli cell only sundrome that he has, either from birth or from the severe mumps he had.

Hope you get some answers soon, just keep phoning & pestering them; I did!!!

We also saw a urologist, but to be honest although he was very nice it wasn't very useful. He checked DH's testicles and said they seemed normal and did hormone blood test and ordered U/S scan which showed nothing to note, and in the meantime our GP referred us to the fertility clinic, we saw them very quickly and then started the road towards the IVF with SSR on day of egg collection. We were lucky, it's all happened quickly for us, just waiting to poas now!

Jo - you start on the 6th Sept? That has to be a good sign for you, it'll be our 2nd wedding anniversary!

Hi Loubylou, great news, well done, I hope the tests are correct!

Thanks to you all for your best wishes, DH has gone in this morning, but they would not let me wait, so I have come in to work to try to kill some time, I cant wait to hear from the hospital to tell me he has come round, you always worry about something going wrong.

Hi waiting ginger - welcome to the club!! It sounds as though you have a similar story to me, however my DH has a 18yr old son, so we know that they were there once! But he has nothing coming out at all, the scan showed nothing up, and the specialists cannot find anything. Good luck with his scan on Friday, I hope you get told something, as we got told there was nothing at all wrong, everything was normal, I was hoping that they'd find something like a blockage so that this would indicate the sperm are there. Dont tell your DH, but my DH said that having the probe put up his bum was not very nice and a bit painful, I think they used the same internal ultrasound scanner that they use on us ladies!! but he did not like it at all and said it was quite uncomfortable (but he does have a low pain threshold!), however he was only in there for 10-15 mins, so its not too long. I know that the recovery from his op will be much much worse, poor thing. I just hope it is worth his pain. Like you my DH has taken it badly that he can't give me a baby naturally, especially when he already had one and he kept me waiting for 6 years!!!

I guess like me you have struggled to deal with not being able to get pregnant naturally now, and that the only way you will have one is through the hospital, and that is the best we can hope for. Otherwise we have to make the decision about a Donor, which for us is seeming like a very hard path, as DH is not keen on that at all.

Good luck for Friday, I hope you get some positive news - whatever that may be! I will let you all know how I get on,
XXX
