Hello

My husband is azoospermic - I'm really sorry to hear you are going through the same thing. It means that sperm isn't found in the ejaculate (you don't know it's missing, because semen is still there.) My husband's was caused part by a genetic deformity - he was born without one of the vas deferens (these are the tubes that transport sperm from the testicle out of the body) - and part surgical error (his working vas was removed when he was four by mistake).

I think - and I am not an expert - doctors talk about obstructive and non-obstructive azoospermia (my husband falls into the first category). The non-obstructive has a hormonal basis, I think. In my husband's case, it meant that he had to have an operation to remove sperm. This was v successful - we got 18 straws (basically 18 rounds of IVF.....), and the sperm was frozen. We had a son with ICSI (a type of IVF that involves injecting the sperm into an egg) in 2010.

I think the biggest cause of azoospermia is a failed vasectomy reversal - could this be a possibility?

It will be a huge shock to you both - I remember the feeling very well. I hope you can get a consultation soon to discuss what might be causing it.

Take care

Thank you jenny, my partner had his left testicle removed at a young age. I have a consultant who looking after me because my 21 progesterone came back at 22 (what ever that means). I'm scared of not having children not only with whatever is going on with me but with my partner too. Did you have you treatment by NHS or was it private? is the operation the treatment for Azoospermia? My partner has to have his s/a rechecked, ment to be called back some time this month but haven't heard anything as of yet.

Hi zeb,

Sorry to hear you and your other half are going through this.

There can be different reasons a guy is azoospermic. Like the above post suggests, there are obstructive or non obstructive azoospermia reasons and depending on which one of these it is, depends on the right fertility treatment for you both.

My hubby is azoospermic due to a genetic condition ( non obstructive). This cannot be treated, it's permanent.

How many SAs has your other half had? Usually 2 is enough for a diagnosis. Usually followed up with bloodwork,perhaps a testicular ultrasound.

Rest assured there'd is a reason which is causing your partners azoospermia and if the reason for this is found, then the consultants can treat him correctly and hopefully point you both in the right direction for fertility teatment.

All the best.
