Haven't been on these boards in a couple of years. So here I am again.
My husband and I spent years trying to conceive. It was caused by male infertility, but there was no conclusive reason as to what was causing the problem. Our specialist recommended a vericocele surgery even though it was only a slight vericocele.
We were told that we would have to use ICSI to conceive even after the surgery, becuase his morphology was sooo bad.
Suprisingly the surgery was successful and we conceived naturally. All the Dr's were absolutely shocked and call our dd a miracle.
Which brings us to today. We have been ttc # 2 for 6 months now. It is breaking my heart that we appear to be back at this place again. We were always aware of the fact that it was a great possiblity that it would happen again, but I guess I just didn't want to believe it.
I don't want dh to have to go through that surgery again.
Hi, I just wanted to say that I am so sorry that you are going through this again. I am going through it for the first time right now, my DH is having surgery at the end of March and REALLY hope that it works for us. Your story is really encouraging that it worked for you the first time around. Has your DH had another SA recently because it can take normal couples with no fertillity issues up to a year to get pregnant. I hope that he is ok and doesn't need surgery again. . .I am not looking forward to it.

I'm so sorry to hear your going through this, we too were told that IVF with ICSI was our only option but we conceived our ds naturally, we've been TTC # 2 now for 15 months, so it looks like we're going through it all over. Docs had no idea what was causing my dh's male factor issues, he didn't have any signs of vericocele or anything come back abnormal in his tests. He was recently tested again and everything came back normal this time except slightly low morphology and slower grade of motility...still...nothing so low that we shouldn't be conceiving...so we're giving it 6 months and then moving onto considering IVF. I hope your dh won't have to have the surgery again and I hope you'll get another miracle soon!
