The causes of infertility can only be determined with the help of a semen analysis test. The sperm count found in the ejaculate fluid does not affect the male sexual drive and may not be an obvious cause of infertility to the patient.
How It Works:
- A semen test indicates that there is an absence of sperm in the ejaculate fluid.
- The patient consults an andrologist with the purpose of determining a diagnosis and picking the best method of treatment.
- An embryologist is consulted in order to determine that spermatogenesis takes place.
- Either the epididymal puncture or testicular biopsy procedure takes place.
- Antibiotics are prescribed to reduce the risk of postoperative complications.
- Up to 50% of couples are incapable of conceiving a child due to male infertility.
- 2-3 minutes is how long the epididymal puncture procedure takes.
- 14-20% of male infertility cases are related to the absence of sperm in the semen.
When Is the TESA/PESA Procedure Recommended?
- In cases of male infertility caused by the obstruction of the ejaculatory tract or the total absence of sperm in the ejaculate fluid.
