I was diagnosed as being azoo in London UK about 7 years back. However, we underwent ICSI 4 times and have two lovely kids. We had always wanted two kids and went through the usual nightmare when the diagnosis came in. After the first kid we tried for another ( knowing that it might not work) but got lucky in the second attempt. As I was azoo we never used any protection. Now for the clinker: My wife just got pregnant again. In the meantime, we have become quite old (by my standards). Moral of the story is that azoo does not mean azoo forever.

  • It is wonderful to hear your story. My husband and I returned from an appt with his Urologist last week. My husband was diagnosed with azoo, which I had to find the term myself, the doctor was no help. He stated that the samples showed zero or few non-motile sperm. He stated that the road pretty much ends here for us being able to become pregnant, as "they" did not know a reason for my husband's inability to produce sperm. They did detect that it was not a blockage, that it is a production problem. He said we could try Chlomid on my husband, but that it looked like a "bleak" outlook as far as that went...let me add that his bedside manner was horrible. At this point we are wondering if we should have a second opinion by an actual fertility specialist. I was told about the ICSI (which the doctor never mentioned) by a friend of mine, but my question is...and personal it may seem...was your Azoo due to a blockage or inability to produce? Do you have experience with you using the Chlomid or any other medicine to assist with production? As you can see we have many questions, but any advice or stories you have would be welcomed and appreciated. Thanks.

  • Hi,I am happy to meet throught the net with the same problem.I do have azoospermia problem. We have not dicided yet if we proceed with any technical way.The first thing that we wish to know is to discrtiminate if is due to a blockage, since all DNA and hormonal looks fine the doctors thing so, but they force us to technical ICSI. Do you now any exam that can discriminate the blockage or not?What are the percentange of success in ICSI and what the dangers for the child or the woman?Thanks at the moment Best regards,Manos
