What is the treatment?

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

After a thorough evaluation is made, the doctor can determine whether hormone treatment (rarely beneficial), microsurgical correction of a blockage, or retrieval of sperm for in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF-ICSI) might offer the possibility of success.

ICSI is an acronym for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. It is a form of Assisted Reproductive Technique wherein under high magnification the sperm is introduced within the cytoplasm of the egg. ICSI involves injection of a single sperm in to single egg in order to get fertilization. If there has been failure of IVF more than twice, those having low sperm count with low motility, and azoospermia, ICSI can be attempted with sperm collected surgically.

Most men facing semen analysis fear the diagnosis of azoospermia. They should be aware that the diagnosis does not necessarily mean that the testes produce no sperm or can never be made to produce sperm and that they will never have a biological child. Accurately diagnosing azoospermia is a complicated process, but one that is clearly necessary before treatment begins.
