To try to conceive with your own eggs and sperm you would need to have IVF and surgical sperm retrieval.  The success rate depends on your age and the number of eggs remaining in your ovary along with the quality of your partner's sperm.  One of our Fertility Doctors would be able to give you individualised advice as to your success rate.
