Many infertile couples have more than one cause of infertility, so it’s likely you will both need to see a doctor. After a number of tests, will the doctor be able to identify the cause and the way forward.
30% of the cause of male infertility is due to the effects of varicocele which is an enlargement of veins in the testicular area. Varicocele may cause decreased sperm production and motility. The decision to treat it surgically or with advanced infertility treatments will be individualised according to patient condition.
If there is sperm in the epididymis, MESA (microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration) is THE preferred sperm retrieval method. Under local anesthesia, a small incision is made in the scrotum. A micro puncture pipette quickly and accurately punctures the epididymal tubule, and the sperm is aspirated through the pipette. The sperm is examined under a microscope for viability, and the incision is closed.
For men with little or no sperm in the epididymis, or if there is no epididymis, sperm can be retrieved directly from the testicles. Performed under local anesthesia, a sliver of testicular tissue is micro dissected under an operating microscope.
The sample can be provided by using a few different ways by masturbating and ejaculating into a special container.
A blood test will help in determining the levels of key sex hormones.
Further testing- It is done if required.
