Fertility Authority’s Blog of the Week: A Few Pieces Missing From Normalcy – An Infertile Man’s Perspective
The blog we’d like to feature this week is A Few Pieces Missing From Normalcy – An Infertile Man’s Perspective
Greg and his wife tried to conceive for 18 months prior to seeing a Reproductive Endocrinologist in December of 2012. After a semen analysis, blood test and a visit to the Urologist he was diagnosed with Azoospermia caused by a Y Chromosome Microdeletion. Azoospermia is a condition where a man produces no sperm, or very little sperm in his ejaculate, giving him a zero sperm count. Following the diagnosis the only option the couple had was to do a biopsy to see if any sperm could be extracted. The couple decided against the biopsy because there has never been a reported case of sperm being extracted from someone with Microdeletions.
Greg started his blog as a way to help himself heal. He originally utilized it as a journal but decided that he could use his blog to spread awareness about male-factor infertility and the impact, effect and pain it causes to both men and women and for that we commend you Greg. He explains, “My hope is that my readers who are going through infertility are able to identify with my pieces in what they themselves are going through.”
