My husband and I got an Azoospermia diagnosis a year ago and since then we have:


-done a micro tese- 3 vials of sperm retrieved and got a Serotoli Only Syndrome dx


- Done 2 IVF cycles, first one resulting in 2 embroyos, one which arrested day 5 and the other transferred day 3 and failed.


2nd IVF i just completed and found out the 2 left over vials of sperm didn't survive thaw on the day of my retrieval, there is no sperm. I cant believe it!


We have eggs on ice and broken hearts. We wait to see Dr. Kirk Lo to see if a second Micro-tese is any option. **Donor sperm isnt an option for us**


I guess my question is, What is the experience with a repeated micro tese on NOA or likelihood that we can get even just another vial of sperm?


I am just dying for some hope. thankk you so much!

Hi, Just so you're aware, the site hasn't had a volunteer andrologist for quite sometime. That's not to say that one of the members will not have some advice for you - just don't want to leave you hanging.
The plural of anecdote is not data.
