2 options: Your labs indicate failure of the testicles in the production of sperm. In men an fsh greater than 7 is concerning. One option is to have a urologist try to see if there are any sperm in the testicles that can be surgically removed and then used for ivf. The other option is donor sperm.

Consult a specialist: When a male fertility expert is consulted as a result of an azoospermia diagnosis, he or she will perform more detailed examinations involving special equipment and techniques. When sperm are found using these techniques, the condition is then called cryptazoospermia. This distinction is very important because it proves that the man is making sperm and that changes his fertility prognosis.

No: There is no proof that any food or natural treatment or even medicine can increase sperm production and pregnancy in partners of azospermic men. The most effective treatment is surgical sperm harvest and using these sperm for ivf with icsi. Sometimes though sperm are not found in the testes or its ducts. Some genetic factors that lead to azospermia should be investigated first.

It depends!: Treatment of low numbers of sperm (or absent sperm) will depend on the cause! it's impossible to dictate treatment without testing first to try and uncover the reason the sperm count is low or zero. Once an underlying cause is found, treatment can be geared towards fixing or bypassing the cause.

Is there any way to be a father as I am an azoospermia patient?

Evaluation: First you need to know why there is no sperm in the semen. There could be a blockage or a problem with sperm production. Usually in order to know if you have father a child you would need to have a sperm extraction directly from the testicle.
