Q. What is Azoospermia?

Q. What infertility treatments are recommended for low sperm count?
The treatment options for low sperm count depend on the cause of the condition. In obstructive azoospermia, the blockage can be corrected through a surgery. Treatment of non-obstructive azoospermia represents a greater challenge. Sometime hormonal medications can be prescribed to regulate the sperm producing hormones. Otherwise fathering a child can be achieved through microsurgical testicular sperm extraction (TESE) procedure. TESE procedure involves removal of testicular tissue for the extraction of sperm to fertilize an egg to be used for in vitro fertilization.
Q. What is sperm mapping?
Sperm mapping, also known as testicular sperm mapping or Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) mapping is a non-surgical procedure to trace sperm location and sperm count in the testicles of men who have non-obstructive azoospermia, a condition where the man has no sperm in their semen. Sperm mapping can determine whether there is sperm in the testis, where it is located, and how much is present.
Q. Is a vasectomy reversible?
Yes, vasectomy surgeries can be reversed successfully. Vasectomy reversal is a surgical procedure where the ends of the sperm carrying tubes, the vas deferens that were cut and sealed during vasectomy are joined back together to enable reproduction.
