Hi everyone…my DH and I have been dealing with non-obstructive azoospermia for over a year now. DH is currently on fsh injections. We recently found one sperm in his ejaculate (just one but it was the first time we ever found anything). This makes his doctors hopeful that there may be sperm inside the testicle for surgical extraction and use for ICSI.
So now of course I’ve been googling ICSI and reading as much as I can. And I’ve found some studies that show that there is an increased risk of birth defects for children born from ICSI. It makes sense. We are circumventing natural selection here by literally forcing a sperm inside an egg. Anyway, so now I am freaking out and would LOVE to hear any stories from people who have gone on to have healthy babies from ICSI. And from people who have had babies with some health challenges too…thank you in advance - I could really use some help in thinking about all this.
