Hello everyone..just an update with me. DH and I went to the urologist again today to give a second sample. Well there was 0 sperm. I know the look on my face really made my DH feel bad. I am not mad at him. Just frustrated. Has anyone had this their DH? And if so can it be corrected? We have to go back in 3 to 4 week for him to give another sample. Thank you all in advance for all your help! Take care and God bless you all. :)

Hi Spindaisy,

My husband also has nil sperm in his ejaculate. He had a biopsy done and we found that he had plenty of sperm there but it was blocked in the tube and could not get out. He did have an operation to see if the blockage could be removed but they could not get to it. We had to go through IVF and use ICSI. We are lucky enough to have a 5yo daughter now and we are also now 6 weeks pregnant with our second. This has all taken a very long time but well worth the journey. Good luck to you and your dh.

My first husband has alot of mutated sperm and they were missing the enzyme to break into the egg. They didnt icsi then so we were out of luck. Take care. Bad news is such a shock.

Sorry about the bad news. It is a huge shock when it comes about. I hope it is something they can work through. They can do so much these days so try not to worry too much until you hear what the docs say about it.

Hello my name is Rebecca my doctor said that my tubes are blocked can you tell me what a HSG is and will it hurt i have been trying to have a baby for 3 years now i'am not on birth control i don;t understand why i can't get that wayi really want a baby more than anything so maybe you can help me whats hsgwhat is that

HSG was a little painful for me. they couldn't get that cathader in the first time due to my cervix being bent. But after the 2nd time, they got it in. They pump die into your tubes to see where they are blocked. There is a little cramping. Make your husband go with you to hold your hand. It worked for me. Some women didn't experience any problems.

Good luck
