What is a condition that refers to Azoospermia and who is dealing with it?
Azoospermia is a condition which refers to as “no sperm count” available in male members ejaculate and this is a fertility condition which has been faced by many male members. Azoospermia is defined as the complete lack of the sperms in men ejaculate. It is a condition that occurs in 5% of male members and if this is the case the following condition may be present:
- First, the condition is the problem with the production of sperms.
- Secondly, there is a blockage in the sperm production due to which it cannot reach the ejaculate.
How is the condition of Azoospermia diagnosed?
The condition of the Azoospermia is diagnosed when the fertility expert find that there are no sperms found in the men’s ejaculate and often usable sperm found in the testis, as not all sperm that is made in the testis actually make it into the ejaculate. The sperm production is affected by the threshold which means if production of sperm is high enough in the testis, then the sperms spill over into the men’s ejaculate. However, in case, this critical level of sperm production is not met which means that there may still be mature sperm in the men’s testis which does not make it into the ejaculate. The fertility experts in India are highly qualified and trained professionals who see hundreds of men every year with this diagnosis and offer a state of the art evaluation for this problem.
What are the causes of Azoospermia?
There is two cause of Azoospermia which is (i) obstructive azoospermia and (ii) non-obstructive azoospermia.
This is a cause which occurs when the sperm are blocked from exiting the testicles in a variety of spots. This condition of Azoospermia can be treated and reversed with microsurgery. According to study, the blockage can be found in men’s epididymis which is 65% of the time, 30% in the vas deferens and 5% of the time in the ejaculatory duct. The microsurgery will be performed to know the actual location of the blockage which will be removed so that the sperm will start moving in the ejaculate and the result is the successful pregnancy.
This is a cause which occurs when the sperm isn’t being produced, or in some cases, it may be produced but at very low levels into a man’s ejaculate. This condition is called as severe oligospermia, and while it is serious, the sperm retrieval and assisted reproductive methods can make the pregnancy possible.
How will the Azoospermia Treatment be performed?
In case, the sperms are blocked from exiting the testicles, then it is a case of obstructive azoospermia and in such condition the surgery under general anesthesia is often an effective treatment which can restore the flow of sperm, however, if the men are dealing with the causes of non-obstructive azoospermia, then the treatment could be trickier depending on the cause, which will be minimally invasive surgeries to extract sperm. There is a method with which the sperms can be retrieved for non-obstructive azoospermia patients and this technique is called as an FNA Mapping.
FNA Mapping allows the expert to identify the specific area in the testicle with the highest levels of the sperms through which the expert can maximize the chances to extract the sperm using the surgery called microscopic testicular sperm extraction (mTESE). The combination of the FNA Mapping and mTESE is the ideal approach for treating the patients with non-obstructive azoospermia those who want a minimally invasive sperm extraction with very little risk, pain and speedy recovery.
How much does the Azoospermia Cost in India?
The Azoospermia Cost in India varies in different places, for e.g. the treatment cost in metro cities is expensive as compared to the Azoospermia treatment in small towns or cities of India. The Azoospermia Cost ranges from USD 500 to USD 1,000 for the entire treatment also the cost of treatment depends upon the cause of azoospermia. In case, there is a requirement of testicular sperm extraction then it will cost the couple with an additional Azoospermia Cost which is around USD 1,200 and it will be charged by the infertility clinics.
If the couple wishes to compare the Azoospermia Cost in India with other developed countries then they will find India is the best and reasonable country for treating the causes of Azoospermia and allow the male members to enjoy the new phase of their life as a father of an own baby.
