Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

High FSH and low testesterone means you have primary testicular failure. I dont see great chances of conception. Any way undergo needle biopsy to confirm presence of sperms.

If no sperms are found I am afraid you have to go for donor semen treatment for your wife.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
