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?

Hello,
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.

Hi doctor, im hoping someone can help me. these topics are not easy to be open about. i have been on the 2 month injection, nur- isterate for about 2years now. During the past two months, I've used various types of drugs recreationally. Mdma, E, cocaine, lsd, shrooms and cannabis. I've noticed that my menstrual cycle is earlier, longer and heavier. I'm due for my next injection in 3 weeks and I've been bleeding for 9days.

should I be worried? what type of effect could these drugs have on the contraceptive? does it reduce the contraceptives efficacy? also, I've been told that the injection is known to promote infertility. I've been on it for 2years and I am 20 years old, should I change my contraceptive?

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?
