My husband was refferred to a urologist after 2 SA. His last count was .001/ml (so I guess like 3000) sperm. The notes at the bottom say "ICSI" Appear possible. All my tests are normal. I am wondering what additional tests the urologist will have us do? We are ready just to move on with IVF, is there some tests that are required before that can happen? Thanks for your response.
Me: 28 - no issues
DH: 30 - LOW low low sperm count (200,000) Motility, Morphology and genetics= Normal

My husband met with a urologist after his SA came back with zero sperm. The urologist did a biopsy to see if he was at least producing sperm and found that thankfully he was and it was all mature. The Dr's then refferred us to IVF/ICSI in Calgary. The Calgary clinic made him do a blood test for Cystic Fibrosis as it is mandatory there anyways when there is male fertility. My tests all came back good as well. That test takes 4-6 weeks they said for the results. After that one comes back (should have been back beginning of this week) we are good to keep calling in my periods to the hotline and wait for our name to come up the list.
Hope this helps a little bit.
