What Is Azoospermia?

Azoospermia is the absence of sperms in the semen due to various causes. Only several types of fluids secreted from the prostate region are found in the analysis of candidate father's semen; which contains no sperms. The lack of sperms to fertilize the egg is the cause of infertility. Owing to technological advances; azoospermia is not a hurdle any more for men, who wish to become fathers. However, sperm production continues at different stages in the small tube-like structures within the testicle tissue even if no sperms are available in the semen. In EUROFERTIL Assisted Reproduction Treatment Centers equipped with the licenced state-of-the-art technology, sperms can be obtained the micro-TESE method from the candidate fathers, who cannot provide sperms with natural methods.

What Are the Causes of Azoospermia?

The condition of absence of living sperm cells in the male is called azoospermia. Azoospermia may occur due to several reasons.

• Immunological causes (the presence of some substances called antibodies; which are developed by the body to fight against sperm cells to eliminate them) 
• Genetic disorders 
• Structural obstructions 
• Hormonal disorders and deficiencies 
• Cryptorchidism (undescended testicles)
• Testicular infections, testicular tumors…
