In brief: Many ways
1. Majority: ejaculation in sterile cup (fresh or frozen-thawed).
2. Per-cutaneous sperm aspiration with a needle 3. Microsurgery of the testes ducts if there is an obstruction 4. Surgery in one or both testes to harvest sperm from the testes. The choice is dependent on initial sperm analysis and male evaluation prior to ivf.
