Someone posted about their DH having 0 sperm count after cancer & I said I'd ask my friend who went through it & get back to you. Now I can't find the darn thread or remember the OP name. Sorry.
My friend was diagnosed with cancer in late 2008. He went through all treatment and is in remission. He said that he had 0 sperm count, a flat 0, for 4 years. Then all of a sudden they saw a few. He was put on vitamins, testosterone, and some other RX (he couldn't remember the name). Then his count went up, but the RE said that they would likely never conceive with iui due to his count being so low. He said that when they were doing the iui his highest count, pre wash, was 7 million total. I know that his wife had endo & she wasn't ovulating. However, like I said, on their 4th iui, right before going into IVF, they conceived. Keep the faith. Medicine worked for my friend, it can for you too! And like everyone else says, it only takes 1! Good luck!
