How Can I Be A Father As An Azoospermic Man
Hi, if azoospermia is coupled with y deletion of b and c region, does it imply that a man with this condition has absolutely no chance be a father?

Seminoma in post op intra abdominal r testicle (undcnd), l testicle normal in ultrasound scan, azoospermia in semen analysis. Can i father in future?
Yes: In most azoospermic males testes don’t produce enough sperm to reach the ejaculate. This is most likely due to genetic deficiencies. Infertile men in general are found to be 1.7 times as likely to develop cancer as men in the general population. In some studies azoospermic men were nearly three times as likely develop cancer as men in the overall population with testicular and other Ca's ...Read more
Most definitely!: I've helped many, many of them. It's always a difficult decision for a couple, but once a decision has been made i've rarely seen anyone have second thoughts. I should also clarify that my professional experience is deliberately limited to anonymous sperm donors; issues involving known sperm donors can be different. ...Read more
Perhaps: A man would only know of his defective spermatozoa if there was an issue raised in the past and he had this tested. With azoospermia comes infertility, an important issue with his partner or marital partner if offspring are a goal. Ethically this should be discussed with the partner if in fact it is known to the man. ...Read more

If Azoospermic men are more likely to develop cancer what about people who have had both testicles removed?
Here are some...: Azoospermia occurs in men after bilateral vasectomy of sterilization or orchiectomy for prostate cancer (nowadays, it is not popular) or occasional men with inborn abnormality in testes, who are those concerned about higher risk developing testicular cancer; and it should not be the issue for men after vasectomy or orchiectomy. More? Ask urologist. In fact, focusing on healthy lifestyle is key... ...Read more
If Azoospermic men are more likely to get cancer then are people who lost both testicles at same risk? Please explain.
2.2% risk of cancer: The Stanford study which found increased cancer risk in azoospermic men did not evaluate men who were castrated (is that which you mean by "lost both testicles"?) Of course a man who has no testicles, can not get testicular cancer (unless they were removed FOR testicular cancer). Castrated men have a lower risk of prostate cancer due to lack of testosterone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If Azoospermic men are at higher risk of developing a range of cancers due to infertility then are people who have testicles removed at same risk?
Incorrect assumption: Your primary assumption seems to be incorrect. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Depends on what kind: When azoospermia (no ejaculated sperm) is due to obstruction, the obstruction may be fixable with surgery. If it is due to a poorly functioning testicle, it rarely is curable but in most cases it is 'treatable' (i.E you can have kids.' read more at: azoospermia-sample-causes-no-sperm-count-success-stories. ...Read more
Here are some ...: The first step is to find out what causes azoospermia - by blockage of transportation or lack of production. Based on the diagnosis, possible options of care could be provided. So, work with the experts in the field closely for details, and see how far the realistic care could be reached. ...Read more
IVF/ICSI, Adoption: The degree of azospermia and the quality of the remaining sperm, if any, are critical. If there are even a few viable sperm, then ivf with icsi is an option where one sperm is directly injected into the egg, with or without ejaculated sperm or tese (extraction via a microsurgery). If there are absolutely no viable sperm on biopsy, then adoption or donor are options. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
It depends: There are many different reasons for azoospermia. If a man has low hormones (from the brain that control sperm production), then pills or injections may help. If azoospermia is due to being born without the tubes that connect the "plumbing" (congenital absence of the vas), then medicines would be of no utility. Bottom line: you need a work up to determine proper therapy. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
