Hi to you,

I don't think that there are any real figures for TESE as it is done in different ways by different people, also often at the same time they will use other retrieval techniques in the same session if sperm are not immediately recovered with TESE. With some men, sperm will be recovered on some occasions and not others. So it is a very variable procedure. It is also done in different male situations with different diagnoses, and you can't put all these together and compare like with like. The individual history will influence the likely outcome.

Finally it depends on what you mean by a successful TESE result. Do you mean sperm recovery of any sort, or of motile sperm or do you mean a pregnancy. This is the obvious ideal outcome, but this is dependent upon other factors to do with the IVF technique and the fertility of the partner.

So it is something that needs to be when there is azoospermia and you can't really predict how it will go.

Good luck

Thank you for your reply.

Basically I am just trying to hold on to some hope. I have no idea where this journey is going and I'm finding it difficult to stay positive.

I just wanted to know, if they did a TESE op, what's the chances they would find something. Probably the same question as 'how long is a piece of string'.

Thanks again.

Hi there Mrs H,

Unfortunately, I don't know much about TESE, although my clinic had my DH on standby in case he produced a very bad sample. They said that if it was that bad, they'd go in and do TESE. I only know of 1 couple who has done TESE and they had it at my clinic. On their first cycle, they got pregnant but she miscarried. On their second cycle, she got pregnant and had a baby last May. They will be returning soon for a brother or sister for their boy. They had it because the male partner had the vas deferens absence. I don't know what the quality of his sperm was like, but he had normal fertilisation. So it does work!
