Azoospermia Treatment: Renewing Hope at Fertility Cure Centre

July 17, 2024

Reports suggest that around 10% of infertile men and 1% of all men struggle with azoospermia. While the percentages might not seem like a lot or too significant, they encompass millions of men diagnosed with the condition every year.

Azoospermia is one of the most common fertility complications that can pose a threat or limitations to one’s dreams of becoming a parent. At Fertility Cure Centre, our dedicated team of fertility experts is committed to providing comprehensive Azoospermia treatment, offering renewed hope on the journey to parenthood.

What is Azoospermia?

Azoospermia is a male fertility complication that is characterized by the “lack of sperm” in one’s ejaculation. The condition can be categorized into two types:

Non-obstructive azoospermia - Issues with sperm production.

Obstructive azoospermia – Absence of sperm in one’s ejaculation due to a blockage that prevents sperm from reaching the semen.

Treatment for the condition is available, but a comprehensive diagnosis is quintessential to distinguish and understand what kind of complication the patient might struggle with.

How is Azoospermia Diagnosed?

If you are experiencing issues with conception, the first step is to consult one of our fertility specialists at Fertility Cure Centre. Following listening to the symptoms, assessing the male and female partners, and examining their medical history, next comes a thorough round of testing.

Comprehensive testing is crucial for a holistic and confirmed diagnosis. For precisely diagnosing azoospermia, the following tests are done:

  • Physical examination
  • Hormonal testing
  • Genetic testing
  • Advanced imaging tests
  • Semen analysis test

Depending on the test results, our specialists will be able to confirm what the complications are and the potential causes or risk factors associated with the concern.

How is Azoospermia Treated?

The treatment of azoospermia depends on the type of azoospermia diagnosed in an individual. The objective of the treatment is to address issues related to sperm production.

Following are a few ways the two types of azoospermia are treated:

Non-obstructive azoospermia treatment

If you are diagnosed with the non-obstructive type, our specialists at the Fertility Cure Centre will employ a multidisciplinary approach to identify what’s contributing to the lack of sperm production in the first place.

Once the root cause is identified, treatment options include:

  • Hormonal therapies
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Nutritional interventions

In some instances, surgical procedures such as micro-TESE (microscopic testicular sperm extraction) can be performed to retrieve viable sperm directly from the testes.

Obstructive azoospermia treatment

In patients who are suffering from the obstructive type of azoospermia, the direct treatment method is to opt for surgical interventions. The intent of the surgery is to rectify the blockage to restore the natural flow of sperm.

Some of the treatment or surgical options in this case include:

  • Vasectomy reversal
  • Epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA/TESE)

How do Artificial Reproductive Technologies (ART) Help Patients with Azoospermia?

Getting diagnosed with azoospermia doesn’t mean an end to your dream of becoming a parent. There are advanced medical interventions that can make it possible for men suffering from azoospermia to conceive their biological child via ART.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are commonly employed to facilitate conception.

Fertility Cure Centre boasts state-of-the-art facilities and experienced embryologists who work closely with our patients to optimize the chances of successful fertilization and implantation.
