Hi everyone. My husband and I want to try for a second ICSI child. Our first was born 3.5 years ago. I have endometriosis, but right now my husband is the bigger issue. He has severe male factor infertility. We have been advised to try Micro-TESE.
- No sperm in his semen
- FSH 31 !!!!!! (normal is 1-10)
- LH 13.9 (normal is 1.5-9.2)
- Testosterone 1.59 (normal is 3.5-8.6)
All of his values are absolutely horrible. His sperm 4 years ago was pretty bad, but we had enough in his semen to do ICSI. Now, we are told to try Micro-TESE and then freeze what they find. But, I am worried even if they find anything it won't survive freeze.
Has anyone been successful with Micro-TESE with such terrible numbers? We have an appointment with an andrologist next week, but I'm interested in hearing what others have experienced.
Should he consider medication first to try and boost his FSH, LH, and Testosterone. If so, what should he try?
