Yes: Depending on the cause of the obstruction, it may be able to be repaired; if not, and/or you decide against surgery, sperm can be recovered from the testicle in a procedure known as tesa or testicular sperm aspiration. Your partner's eggs are then recovered and a single sperm can be injected into a single egg, known as icsi, or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Pregnancy rates can often be good.

A 16-year-old member asked:

What is azoospermia?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jesse Mills
Urology 20 years experience
No sperm in semen: Azoospermia means there is no sperm in a man's ejaculate. This can either be from obstruction or lack of production. A urologist with fertility training can make that diagnosis and provide treatment options. Often, men that have no sperm in semen make a small amount of sperm that can be retrieved from the testicle for in vitro fertilization.

I want to know whether there is any advanced treatment for azoospermia?

Yes!: Well, actually, it depends on what you mean by "treatment". If you mean "cure", then it depends on the cause of azoospermia. Some men with azoospermia due to a large varicocele, for example, may have better sperm after surgical treatment. Men with congenital absence of the vas deferens, as another example, can typically have sperm surgically extracted and injected into eggs during ivf.
A 29-year-old member asked:

What, if any, are signs of azoospermia?

Azoospermia: Azoospermia is defined by absent sperm on a semen analysis. You are correct identifying this as a sign rather than a symptom. There are no reliable symptoms associated with azoospermia.

I want to know whether there is any guaranteed treatment for azoospermia?

Dr. Khurram Rehman

Donor sperm closest: No treatment for male or female infertility is 100% guaranteed, but donor sperm is the closest thing for azoospermia as it's from healthy men without fertility issues. Many men with azoospermia can have children using surgically retrieved epididymal or testicular sperm, combined with ivf with icsi. A genetic test identifies some who won't get sperm at retrieval. Donor sperm backup is a good idea.
A 48-year-old member asked:

No: Most causes of azoospermia are not treatable by natural therapies.
