Hi.

How od is your DP? I didn't understand all those numbers but my hubby (54) had a vasectomy 20 years ago and we chose to go for ICSI instead if the reversal. R those numbers OK?
:goodluck:

Welcome aboard! If your way doesn't work there are other options. Don't give up hope! :xxx:

My husband's reversal didn't work. We also had ICSI and our resulting twins are now very gorgeous 2 year olds.

It looks like you/your other half is producing some sperm and it only needs 1 for ICSI to work.

Good luck.
