Testicular blockage? Anyone relate?

Hello everyone.

Kinda looking for some advice and understanding with the following..... ok here goes... (deep breath)...........My wife and I have been trying for a baby for some time now Im 33 she is 34, and alas to no avail... We have been to a fertility treatment clinic, have had bloods done, and semen analysis tests also, everything is great on her side of things however on my side, when the doctor read out the lithany of things were at fault, to be honest I just wanted to get out of there and run away and hide and possibly die..... the semen result came back and showed up one ! sperm , but the sperm was so weak that they could not use it and in turn could not do a dna fragmentation test, my testosterone levels were very low, yet in saying that I am in no way displaying or feeling any of the side affects of low T levels ie, stubble growth stunned, facial hair lack, energy ,yes a little but due to work I think more so.

So initially it was thought that it was just the sperm could not escape from the testes, indicating a blockage of some sort or another, but the fact that one was identified in the sample, may cancel this out, which in turn would possibly rule out a testicular biopsy to extract the tissue in which to extract the necessary tools!!! lol to conceive.
The doctor is suspecting Testicular failure and possibly a male menopause ?? (at 33 like !!!)so the next step is I am being referred to a Urologist to closer inspect the issue and as to what may be able to be done to further along the course of action......

Has anyone any advice or information as to what the Urologist will do after learning of all the above information??? Kinda having a hard time dealing with this to be honest and putting a huge strain on our relationship , knowing that Im the cause of not giving your wife kids (whom she adores and really wants) and says that its ok to you but secretly deep down you know yourself whats what .At the end of the day, being told in so many words and what it breaks down to is that Im no good as a man, Are we not here on this planet to pro create.
So heres hoping I hear some really good news soon guys, THANK YOU all very much from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read this.
A trouble shared is a trouble halved eh .

Kind Regards ,, Guiseppi .

What are your testosterone levels? Did you have your pituitary levels checked as well?
