The surgeon tells us that due to the original vasectomy, (even though the tubes were reattached succesfully), the zero sperm count is probably due to a blockage in the epididymis which can happen due to a backlog of dead sperm which can collect after the vasectomy. Unfortunately, in some cases the dead sperm fail to clear and even if the tubes are joined together again, the live sperm cannot find their way through.
This is assuming he had sperm in the first place as we've not had children previously.
As his infertility is most probably due to the original vasectomy, we are unlikely to get help with IVF. We will see our GP together next week, but we're devastated.
It's a long shot, but has anyone got any helpful suggestions? Sperm donation is not something we will consider. I only want his baby. I am 40 this year. I only want one baby. This just isn't fair.
