Prayer Request - Bad news from RE
Tue, 09-06-2011 - 8:54pm

Hi ladies,

I know I can count on my prayer warriors here on the TTC Christian Sisters board. For those of you that know me, my DH and I have been TTC almost 2 years now and just recently decided to get checked out with an RE. Well, not good news. We got my DH's SA back on Saturday and he has no sperm. We were beyond shocked. The doctor said it is more than likely nonobstructive azoospermia and our only chance of getting pregnant would be for him to have a testicular biopsy where they may be able to find some sperm in the testicle and freeze them and then do IVF. We are devastated. Never in a million years did we think that this was our problem. My DH is blaming himself and is very upset...I'm upset because he is so upset. I keep telling him we are in this together and we have to trust in the Lord. It is very difficult.

He had blood drawn today to see if it is a hormonal problem or genetic and then he will meet with a urologist that specializes in male infertility...according to our RE, this is not a fixable condition, IVF is the only chance.

Please pray for our medical needs as well as for peace in this situation.

Thank you.

I know it's jarring for a man to go through this...when my husband's numbers came back at 1% morphology (meaning that out of all the possible swimmers--and his production was low--only one percent was likely to be effective at fertilizing an egg,) he about crashed.

Kelly, I'm so sorry to hear that the results were that. I know you'll both need some space to grieve this (because right now, what ever happens in the future, it's a loss) I pray that you'll be able to work out where to go from here and that you'll get all the love and support you need. We're definitely here to talk. (((HUGS))))) and prayers.
