We were recently told that my husband has Klinefelter’s Syndrome and has zero sperm count in the analyses he’s had done. We’ve been told that there is a 50% chance sperm can be found through a testicular biopsy. Is that accurate? If sperm is found for IVF, would we be able to have a viable pregnancy and healthy baby?

REPLY

Is male infertility hereditary? My son was conceived through IVF several years ago. We were not able to determine the cause of my husband’s infertility then. I’m worried that whatever caused the infertility may have been passed to my son. Are there genetic tests that can determine if this is the case?

My husband and I really want biological children, but he has sertoli-cell only syndrome. Are there any treatments?

From Dr. Trost: I’m not sure if there is a definitive answer to this question. I did a quick literature search to see if anything had ever been published on this, and I was not able to find anything specific. It would seem to make empiric sense to me that the optimal position for the female would be laying on her back as this would increase the amount of time that sperm are present in the correct location near the cervix. It is interesting, however, that sperm are able to travel to the location of the egg within a few minutes of ejaculation. This would argue that the actual position maybe less important than one would think.
