Tese/ icsi

Hi there!. me and my husband are going down the route of Tese and ICSI treatment. It really has been a difficult year coming to terms with this and the possible future of not having a child of our own. But we are getting there day by day. We would be interested to hear about other people's experience of those who have had this treatment and what is involved. I know there is lots on the net to look up, but we would be greatful to hear from those of you who have been though this complicated process.

Many thanks..

Hi Daisy and welcome to FZ.

My DH had a vasectomy reversal and at the same time had MESA. They got 8 vials of sperm and these were frozen. The reversal did not work so we defrosted one vial and this was used for ICSI. I'm afraid I don't know about TESE but I think it is similar, I am not sure what was the reversal and what was Mesa but after a week or so of soreness DH was much better. We were very fortunate and ICSI worked first time. Wishng you so much luck. Any questions ask away xxx

Hi Daisy
My husband has absence of vas deferens (AVD) due to being a cystic fybrosis gene carrier and as a result he had to have an SSR. It was a really quick operation and he wasn't sore for long. All he did was eat really healthily and cut out alcohol for about 3 months before the operation. We got 3 vials of juvenile sperm frozen ( AVD means that the tube from the testes doesn't form at birth so sperm cannot become mature, as I understand it! It's quite rare so not much written about it), and I am now 37 weeks PG so am an example of a success story.

Good luck

Many thanks for your positive replies, so great to hear that you were both successful with icsi. Net, my husband is also considered to be gene carrier of CF. before our experience, I have never heard of this being a cuse for male infertility before. It has come as such a shock. were you treated on NHS or private? How long did the process take from Tese to Icsi? I didn't realise the sperm would be considered juvenile, how was the sperm matured? I have been in the frame kind of if I think of the worse case scenario then I won't be dissapointed if it doesn't happen, but after reading some of the forums here I am starting to feel a little more positive! Congratulations on your sucess! Wonderful result!

Many thanks xxx

Hi daisy

It came as a complete shock to us too. When my DH's sperm sample came back with zero sperm we were devasted. We had genetic testing done at Guy's hospital under the NHS but the SSR privately because at the time the wait list for my PCT was 3 years. Luckily they then changed their rules the month before we were due to start private treatment and we were very lucky to get NHS ICSI again at Guy's hospital.
Regarding the juvinile/mature sperm I think the urologist told us that because of the AVD the sperm wouldn't be mature but juvenile sperm can still be used (I think). To be honest I didn't ask the embryologists about it - I should have done but of the 10 eggs I got, 5 fertilised and 4 went to blasto, so I was very lucky.
We had genetic testing March 2010, SSR June 2010 and started first ICSI Feb 2011 but I could have done it Aug 2010 if we had gone private, it was only delayed till Feb 2011 due to switching to NHS and Guys losing our paperwork!
All the very best
