My boyfriend and I are about to get married and we need a baby, unfortunately he had bilateral undescended testes when young which was diagnosed at the age of seventeen after he got obstructed inguinal hernia and the left testes was removed while right orchidoplexy was done. We did sperm analysis and he had azoospermia , very painful for us. Is there any way we can have a baby of our own baby by doing sperm mixing with a donor s sperms? or even grow his sperms from his stem precursor cells. Please assist us. am 26, he is 28.

thank you for writing to HCM

You boyfriend can undergo further testing and see if his hormones are normal
If they are normal, then a testicular biopsy can be done and he tissue sample can be frozen for further use.

You can 1st see if the sperm is available from your boyfriend and then you can think of donor later.

you can try all possible method to get sperm from your partner and plan further

wish you all the best
