Pcos & Zero Sperm count is there any hope of becoming a mummy ??

Hello there

I am new to all this but could really do with some advise as im feeling very alone right now.


Back in 2005 i was diagnosed with PCOS it has never really affected me luckliy enough. I had A laparoscopy and my tubes are all fine and dandy , they think i will just need help ovulating.
I got married to my DH in Aug last year and he has always known about my PCOS and that we may need some help when it came the Time.

We decide we would start the ball rolling this year and i was referred to a specialist at dorchester hospital and in the mean time my DH was sent to have a sperm test.

We have had the results back from two sperm tests now and both came back saying he had a zero sperm count. We are obviously devistated.
When my DH was 12 years old he had a operation on his undesended testicles to put them into there sacks (orchidopexy). Our doctor thinks this is why there is no sign of sperm.


We went to our first appointment today at the spealist in dorch and i just feel gutted today, they are doing blood tests on Dh which take 3 months to come back then if nothing genetic comes back then he goes to a urologist to see if he can help in anyway. I have to have a HSG, bloods and swabs done. I m so scared i will never be a mummy.


We have briefly spoken about sperm donor, but they have told us today that the nhs dont fund this so would that mean if dh is unable to produce sperm we would be childless.


I would be soo soo sooo grateful of any advise or experiences anyone has on any of this.


Thank you so much

hi kate and welcome to fz.I cant help here with thee pcos side of things but there are lots o ladies on here who can.My df has azoospermia and also had an op for undesended testicles as a child,i am so sorry you are in this situation,my df had blood tests and i think it only took a week for them to come back so maybe you could get a 2nd opinion?as for donor sperm i think it's down to the nhs postcode lottery to be honest.I would ask if they would refer you to the urologist in the mean time because that usually takes a while and would save you waiting twice if you see what i mean ?(.Im glad you found this site it has been a great support to me-there is a diary section but i think you have to make a certain number of posts or become a fz friend to access but i know reading other peoples journeys helped me.Sorry im babling now lol if you want to chat feel free to pm me xxx

Thank you

Thank you for your warm welcome.

Rainbow it is nice to here from someone who understands where im coming from ref DH.
the spealist said they would take 3 months for bloods to come back which i think is crazy as they must have to test it that day so why so long for results .. baffles me.
Trying to stay positive but its sometimes hard.


Thank you again love this place
