Help and advice required - Male infertility

Hello

I am 26 and my partner is 33

He was confirmed a few years ago as sterille and resigned himself to not becoming a father.

Recently we have become curious to the possiblities and opportunities that are out there and we are here for some advice, information and general help.

I have read on the Bridges of London Clinic website about Male Factor optimisation and these has given us something to work from. Although i have searched the Aberdeen Clinic's website and cannot find this treatment as a local option.

We are only just starting out,so any advice would be appreciated.

Hi
Welcome to FZ, you will find lots of info, advice and support on here.

There are many members who have male factor issues, please have a read of the male factor threads, here: Male Factor Threads

Were you given a resaon for the male infertility? what tests have you had? Have they done hormone blood tests and semen analysis as well as a surgical sperm extraction? There are many reasons for male factor issues and many treatments, there are options such as a TESE / PESA to extract sperm for use in ICSI treatment, there are hormone injections, MERC tests and much more plus the option of using donor sperm.

Please have a read of the threads on here, feel free to ask any questions and pop into the male factor section for a chat

Good Luck x
