DH was recently diagnosed with non-obstructive azoospermia -- meaning that he has a chromosomal, incurable disorder that stops sperm production. The urologist wasn't hopeful; he says we can have a testicular biopsy to see the extent of the issue (there may be scant areas of sperm production), but when egg retrieval time comes, they'd have to (YIKES) open up his testicle and examine it under a microscope to find sperm worthy of ICSI. And even then, he's recommending that we have donor sperm as a backup.
I'm in shock and DH is (understandably) going through 18 different emotions at the same time. I want to give him time to come to terms with the idea of using a donor before we move forward. Have any of you gone through this? To be honest, I'm not even sure if I'm asking a question here, just looking for a virtual hug. LOL
