We are considering doing IVF with PGD for family balancing in 2015. My husband had a vasectomy in Dec. 2013. I understand that he will need the TESE procedure. He is 31 and I am 27 years old with 3 sons conceived naturally. Are there any supplements that he should take (Cyvita?) other than a multivitamin, or are they not necessary since we are doing TESE and ICSI. Curious since we wont be able to examine sperm quality prior to IVF.

Hello Maegan-In general, patients that have had a vasectomy will have normal sperm with TESE. However regarding supplements and likelihood of finding normal sperm at the time of TESE is an appropriate discussion to have with the urologist that will be performing the procedure.
Wishing you the best, David Tourgeman, MD
