    Default Sperm Extraction

    Hello



    Has anyone conceived via sperm being extracted by needle from their husband? I think this is the way we have to approach and I have no idea what to expect.

    This procedure is called a testicular biopsy. They insert a fine needle into the testicle and extract approximately 50 sperm.

    This is done for men who have trouble ejaculating.

    I don't have personal experience with this, but a previous colleague (male) I worked with had this done, resulting in a beautiful baby. Apparently it's quite uncomfy for the bloke, but probably comparable to some of the IVF/investigative procedures us ladies have gone through in our TTC journeys.
