what country are you in? are you in the UK? Did your dh have the ope where they try and suction it through an incision or did he have the biopsy where they cut out small sections?

My dh had SSR at Liverpool Women's Hospital in the UK and his consultant has a 100% success rate - he has never not got sperm from someone during surgery. they try the suction first then take around 3 different biopsies until they find some sperm.

If you are in the UK it may be worth a try. Otherwise you could try with donor sperm, if you and your dh feel ok about this.

best of luck to you, whatever you decide to do.

9 failed attempts using thawed, surgically retrieved sperm.
2 year break and vasectomy reversal for dh.
Consultation for 10th attempt using fresh sperm - Nov 09.
