PESE.

hi all,

Just wondered if anyones dh that has had ssr did they always do pese first?.

Or was it tese first?, our hospital says they try pese then if they are not successful they would do tese.

If they had Pese was it successful?

RE: PESE.

:hi: chalmers

You're spot on in thinking that PESA is the first option and then TESE if no sperm is found in the epididymis.

We were told the same and when my DH first went for his SSR, we didn't know if they were going to find any anywhere! Fortunately they found some in his epididymis....about a million in fact! He's now had two successful PESAs (Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration) - but unfortunately for us my DH's sperm doesn't freeze/thaw well so he's gonna have to have a third in a month's time....half an hour after my egg collection because they're confident of finding sperm in his epididymis. Just for your info he has congenital absence of the vas deferens. PESA is by far the less invasive although there can be some bruising and he did feel quite sore for a couple of days.

The technique called Testicular Sperm Extraction, or TESE, is used in cases of non-obstructive azoospermia, or if PESA has been unsuccessful.

Hope this helps hon!

hi duffymoon and ravan,

thanks for the replies, i just wondered as i need to know whether or not too add in the extra money for the tese incase the first one fails.

Its cheaper to go for the pese so that would be great if we could give that a go first, hopefully they will find some sperm there.

I am paying for it too but trying to keep the costs down so we can go for it sooner than planned as i am fed up waiting.

thanks ladies

I'd have to check but i think with our clinic, the cost came under the umbrella "SSR" so whether it was PESA or TESE they still charge the same. If they hadn't found sperm with PESA they would have gone straight on to a TESE so when he came round I lifted his gown to see what the damage was before they told us which he'd had :snigger:

If you don't mind me asking, what's your DH been diagnosed with?
