When did you start actually looking pregnant with your second or more?

Because the epididymal tubule is very delicate and convoluted, the yield with a needle is typically small and usually only sufficient for a single cycle of IVF-ICSI performed on the same day as the PESA. In male infertility occasionally sperm may not be reliable retrieved at all. PESA can be used for men with congenital absence of the vas and in lieu of vasectomy reversal. This procedure involves insertion of a small needle, under local anesthesia, directly into the epididymis for aspiration of a fewer number of sperm than would be necessary for fertilization by conventional IVF.

Costs are lower because an operating microscope, the skills of a microsurgeon, and the possibility of
