My DH will be doing Micro-TESE procedure in August and if we find sperm we are going to freeze it to use for IVF with ICSI. Right now I am stuck waiting and was hoping to hear stories from others who've had success. Please share as much you'd like. Curious to hear what the diagnosis was (non-obstructive or obstructive), if you were given chances of success for the Micro-TESE procedure, how many sperm were found, if you froze the sperm or used it fresh, how many IVF attempts it took, how many embryos were transferred, how old you were at the time and how many children you ended up having.
My husband is over-weight with a BMI of over 50 and I just read an article based on a study that found "Overweight men have lower clinical pregnancy rate after micro-TESE and ICSI compared to men with normal BMI. Men with BMI > 43 did not contribute to any pregnancies, despite successful sperm retrieval."
It's got me a little freaked out as we were told if sperm was found it would probably only be enough for one round of IVF and then our hopes of having biological children will be gone. It's really hard being hopeful when the odds aren't in our favour.
