Paul, we have TESE results - Help please!

Hello Paul,

We got DH's TESE results today. He said that they found some sperm in only 1 of the 8 sites they took samples from. He has put DH on Tamoxifen, and we have to go back in 5 weeks to discuss our options. DH may have to have another TESE down the line.

Urologist said he isn't sure if there will be any sperm in the sample that is frozen (but he thinks there will be), but they are going to run some tests.

Do you have any knowledge of Tamoxifen? Should we be happy that they at least found this small amount? FYI, DH is also taking Wellman.

Hi,

Yes it is good news that any sperm were found at all. Good things can be done with even only a few, non-motile sperm.

Tamoxifen is an anti-oestrogen like Clomid and which acts therefore in the same way. It is rarely used in male infertility and may only gave any success in a limited group os men e.g where the sperm picture is not too abnormal and the FSH level not too far out of the normal range. I am not sure how beneficial it will be in your case but see how it feels when he takes it and whether there is any indication of some slight imporvement.


Kind regards,
