Husband is completely infertile.

Postby LizzyandJoe » Sun Nov 02, 2014 3:50 am


We have been trying for a baby for 2 years. Since it wasn't working we decided to both have tests done.

My tests have come back completely fine, however it turns out my husband is completely infertile.

We have been told there is nothing they can do at all since they can't find a single sperm in his semen. We are waiting for more tests but have waited for around 4 months for an appointment and looking for a little hope?

Is there anyone else that has been told they are completely infertile? And was there something that could be done?

We are starting to think about sperm donors but want to make sure that there is no chance of having a baby together before we go ahead and all the doctors we have seen have been completely useless.

Lizzy, my husband is not completely infertile (low numbers and we have not yet gotten pregnant on our own after 15 cycles) so I can't imagine what you must feel. I wonder, though, if any semen can be found in his testicles? I have read that is some cases, there may be no sperm in the ejaculate, but some can be found in the testicles. In that case, something like IVF with ICSI may be possible.

I am by no means an expert on this topic, it is just something I have read. I am so sorry you have to go through this, and so sorry you had to find out after 2 whole years of trying. I really hope there are options and answers for you!
