Question: My husband is 27 and had a spermatocele cyst surgically removed around 5 years ago. We have been married for 3 years with 3 years of unsuccessful pregnancy. I am 27 myself and I actually have a 6 year old son from a prior marriage as well as had my fertility checked from top to bottom and was cleared positively to have children. I also had my egg morphology checked and a diagnostic, robotic surgery to check for further infertility issues with me and I am in the clear to have children. I have always thought it was my husband but he hasn't been checked beyond his post op for any infertility issues and from what I've read about his surgery there seems to be a great deal of infertility from them and thus we are proof. Three years and still not pregnant!! Are there any treatments out there for male infertility caused from spermatocele cyst removals and if not what are our options if any? What should we do from here?

Thanks for posting your query.
After a spermatocele cyst removal, a semen examination needs to be done to detect any abnormal sperms or the sperm count.
Taking a Zinc, selenium, l-carnitine, vitamins C and E supplementation once daily for few months will help the sperm health.
The treatment depends on the assisted reproductive techniques will help you.
You need to consult an infertility specialist for further guidance.

We already bought and used Fertile aid which states all the vitamins and supplements you suggested for over 6 months and still no luck! We are seeing a specialist in two weeks but I just want to know before we go that there are options out there since he had his surgery done to correct everything and help us aid in the conception of a child! If there is not is IVF available and if so we already have the money set aside, prepared and willing to do so but that was out lady option of course but do you know if there are other options for him if we have already tried everything else mentioned before we go through with IVF?

For a low quality sperms, ICSI and IVF both are helpful.
Please do not worry. In some cases only IUI with concentrated sperm sample is helpful. You do have options.
Best of luck.

I am a 38-year-old male, 6 ft in height and 87 kgs in weight. I had been diagnosed with moderate scalp Psoriasis in late 2007, after which I went in for homeopathic treatment for nearly a year. There was a some relief and I discontinued treatment in 2009. In 2010 I developed reddish Psoriatic rashes on my chest for which I have been under no specific medication. Now in 2011, a semen sample analysis was done for me in connection with efforts for my wife's conceiving a second child. The results showed male infertility with my condition being termed Oligo Asthena Teraspermia (OAT) which is essentially a negative on all three factors of male fertility. I happened to learn that immunological disorders like Psoriasis contribute to Male infertility in at least 10% of the cases. Is this true? And should I see a connection between my two conditions?
