Thank you! It’s so hard when you can’t physically do anything to fix it

Hi ladies, ahh im in a similar position. We found out this past august that my husband has azoospermia, 0% count, it was absolutely devastating. We don’t know the reasons as to why but the urologist had put him on chlomid and some fertility vitamins. His FsH and LH are a bit high so it seems like it’s the non-obstructive kind. It’s been a rollercoaster.. so disheartening at times but we will see what happens.. trying to cope. He’s been on the drug for about a month now, and will potentially be doing semen analysis once a month to see if there is improvement. Ivf is our only option, of course that is IF they find sperm.. sending lots of love to you ladies ❤️❤️❤️

Hang in there, I can imagine how hard it is to wait to see doctors at a time like this especially when you’re looking for answers. We had to wait 6 months for a specialist and it was really difficult. I learned that it’s so important to let go of control and focus on your love for each other, life is unexpected and a time like this is especially so. Lots of love to you and your partner, please feel free to reach out at any time if you need to chat ❤️❤️❤️

We’re in the same boat but we haven’t actually seen the specialist as yet. He was supposed to have a repeat semen analysis and an ultrasound but that’s all been cancelled

Hello I’m new to the group, HELLO EVERYONE!!! I’m going through makle infertility with my fiancé. We plan to start the IVF process in mid March. (Fingers crossed) So far they placed him on Clomid to help with his low sperm count, and in 2 weeks they want to do another semen analysis. Which our 2 weeks will be next Wednesday, but since they only due them on Tuesday he will continue to take the Clomis until the 11th of February or I’ll see if they can just do it February 4th instead. Also I start taking my birth control the end of February when I have my next menstrual cycle. Good luck to everyone here, I’m excited and super ready. Also hoping for a better sperm count.

My husband has 1% morphology and slightly low motility but his count was super high. I consulted multiple doctors and all but one said that IVF was our only chance of conceiving. They told me that IUI would most likely not work for us. I hope that isn’t the case for you and you’re able conceive first time round :)

Hi Kristen, we had multiple analysis done both in and out of the US. The results were the same. We were told that unlike motility and count, morphology will not change with any diet or medication. One doctor even told us not to waste time and money on IUI and to proceed with IVF immediately. I’m not sure how old you are but the younger you are the more eggs you can retrieve so the higher your chances will be. I know exactly how you must be feeling and I wish you the best of luck!

Hey there! My husbands analysis showed 0% morphology 😩 we have yet to hear from the urologist and I’m getting quite frustrated...I just want more info...like yesterday haha. I’m trying to keep some hope that we may have a chance without IVF. Did your husband have multiple semen analysis done prior to them recommending IVF? Did they recommend any diet/lifestyle changes and reevaluating? I’d greatly appreciate any info you may have! Thank you and I wish you the best on your continued journey!
