Stages of Azoospermia Treatment
Are you a man who suffered from azoospermia? Do not worry, now we have a lot of treatments that are proven effective against azoospermia, both medical and alternative therapies. All you have to do is first discuss with your partner and your family, collect information about azoospermia as much as possible to provide preliminary information for you about azoospermia.
We have discussed about what azoospermia is in previous article, a simple definition of azoospermia is, the absence of sperm in the ejaculation. Although sperm is not found in ejaculation, but sperm may be found in the testis. This is because there is a quota in the production of sperm, when the number of sperm produced in the testes have goes beyond a certain amount, then the sperm can be released during ejaculation. If the amount is not met, then the sperm produced in the testes will never be released with ejaculation.
We will conclude the treatments into seven numbers so you will easily figure them out.
Complete medical check-up A thorough review of medical problems, exposures, past surgery, medications, and family history is undertaken to help define Causes of azoospermia.
Physical examination Then, a brief, well-performed physical examination is performed.
Blood test Third, blood tests are taken That include testosterone and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
Cement test Fourth, two semen samples are needed. With each sample, a standard semen analysis is performed. If no sperm are found, then the semen sample undergoes an additional evaluation in the which the sample is “spun” down in a centrifuge to concentrate small numbers of sperm at the bottom of the tube. This “pellet” of Examined the ejaculate is then thoroughly for sperm by an experienced lab technician. If 10 or even 1 sperm sperm is present in the pellet analysis, then conditions Such as reproductive tract obstruction are painlessly disproved.
Advance examination When sperm are not found in the ejaculate, then there is either obstruction or blockage in the reproductive tract or sperm is not being made at levels sufficient to get into the ejaculate. A blockage can be due to prior infection, surgery, prostatic cysts, injury or congenital absence of the vas deferens (CAVD). Except for cases of congenital absence, most cases are of obstruction are repairable with microsurgical or endoscopic reconstruction. Alternatively, patients with blockage can undergo sperm retrieval and use assisted reproductive technology to conceive. Please bear in mind that the use of assisted reproduction is the more expensive option of the two in general and involves conceiving in the laboratory and not in the comfort of your own home.
Kallman Syndrome case In non-obstructive azoospermia, medical treatment can help some men develop sperm ejaculated like Those with reversible conditions Such as Kallman syndrome, or hyperprolactinemia. However in most instances, the only hope for building a biological family is to use sperm retrieved from the testis with assisted reproduction. One of the most difficult, aspects of non-obstructive azoospermia is that? Only 50% -60% of men will have usable testicular sperm. Moreover, Recognized clinical features like testicular size, history of ejaculated sperm, serum FSH levels, or biopsy reading, do not accurately predict whether or not sperm will be recovered from the testis.
