Male Infertility

At Ridge IVF, we are committed to providing complete management and treatment for Azoospermia, Oligospermia, Impotency, Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

 

Obstructive causes

Incisional procedures like Vaso-epidydimo-anastamosis might enhance the sperm count in 40% of cases. If count of sperms is less, then IVF-ICSI is the only way if couple want a child of their own. Another option can also be donor insemination.

 

Non-Obstructive causes
In case of inherited defects like Kline Felters syndrome and Micro deletion in Y chromosome etc. donor insemination seems to be the only option. Adoption is another choice in case the couple is reluctant to undergo treatment. If the testes are atrophic due to infection, then donor insemination is again the option. Varicocelectomy can also enhance the count of the sperm. 

Erectile dysfunction: Prescriptions such as Sidnaphyll and therapy can be of great help. If the count of the sperms is good then IUI is an option. When sperm count is less, then IVF-ICSI also makes for a great option. In case of impotency, penile prosthesis is available by which couples can have a normal sex life. 

AZOSPERMIA can be managed through the following procedures.
Sperm Aspiration
It is a process by which viable sperms are retrieved from male reproductive tract. Below mentioned are the methods by which sperms can be extracted for use in ICSI:-

  • Microsurgical Epidydimal Sperm Aspiration (MESA): Sperms are obtained from the epididymus using an operative microscope.
  • Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (PESA): To obtain sperms, epididymus is pierced with the help of a needle & sperms are aspirated with a nozzle.
  • Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA): This process involves sucking out the testicular tissue & isolating the sperms from it.
  • Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE): It is a process where a small portion of testicular tissue is separated through an incision. This tissue is placed in culture media & sperms are taken out from it.

: Low semen volume
Normozoospermia : Normal ejaculate (WHO Criteria)
Oligozoospermia : Sperm concentration fewer than 15 x 106/ml
Asthenozoospermia : Fewer than 50% of motile sperm
Teratozoospermia : Fewer than 4% with normal morphology
Oligoasthenoteratozoospermia : Signifies disturbance of all three variables
Azoospermia : No spermatozoa in the ejaculate
Aspermia : No ejaculate (absence of semen)
