Absence of vas deferens?

Hi, am brand new to site, have left an intro on the newbie section, but just wondered if this affects anyone else on this site? Husband has had all the tests now including CF gene tests. He's a carrier, I'm not (phew!), so going ahead with IVF. There's precious little on the internet, and before we see consultant again it would be good to speak to anyone who's already gone through the sperm extraction stage?

:hi: Hi Net Welcome!!

Such a relief isn't it to hear you're not a carrier also, makes things so much easier at this rough time. My DH is CF gene carrier I believe he has his vas deferens but CF gene causes a blockage with him. Well good news my DH had biopsy TESE a couple of weeks ago and we found loooooooooooooottttts of quality sperm!! We were brought back last week to be put on the ICSI list (ICSI rather than ivf is used in this process) If you have any questions just ask and I and the other girls/boys will be sure to answer [zx042]

Hi Leni,

thanks for your reply, that's great news about your DH! I guess that's what my DH will go through. He's very nervous about it all. How invasive is the biopsy? I'm guessing from your post and a few others I have read now that's we'll go through ICSI as well, unless they can extract sperm any other way....lots of questions for the urologist!

Hi Net, it really wasn't bad at all (easy for me to say!) It was a long needle into one area took about 5 mins and then I was called in to wait with DH in recovery , he had to hold the area for half an hour but a day or two after he didn't have any tell tale signs of any op. Wishing you all the best for your journey and any questions just mail me and i will do my best to help :smile:

Hi Net
welcome to FZ and to the male factor section, there are many ladies on here who have supported their husbands and partners through the SSR / TESE / PESA extraction procedures and some with amazing results.

My DH had a SSR (Surgical Sperm Extraction) which sadly was unsuccessful, he was sedated and in theatre for approx. 30 minutes which I think is an average time, it all depends what they find. Most men have a few days rest and some pain killers and then they are perfectly fine, although avoiding sports and heavy lifting for a few days after in advised. The clinic will give you a care sheet which should give details of things to look out for and signs of infection which mean you would need to visit your GP, but these kind of complications are rare.

Has your DH had blood tests to check for hormone levels, these can be useful before the procedure to give the clinic a rough idea of sperm production, might be worth asking at your next appt.

wishing you the very best of luck x
