What is Azoospermia
AZOOSPERMIA – NIL SPERM
Azoospermia or loss of sperm is the most prevalent factor that is responsible for male infertility. Azoospermia leads to absence of sperm during ejaculation or complete absence of sperm. When the semen analysis is done, it shows the absence of sperm in the ejaculate, but doesn’t rule out the possibility that sperm is being produced and not delivered to the semen.
Azoospermia in medical term also defines the absence of sperm during ejaculation. It can be also ‘obstructive’ where there is a blockage preventing sperm from entering the ejaculate. Around 10% of infertile men and 1% of all men have azoospermia.
Signs and Symptoms of Azoospermia – A person suffering from azoospermia may show following symptoms below:
1. Testicles those are small, soft, and no palpable
2. Increased body fat, body hair
3. Whitish or watery discharge from penis.
4. Mass or swelling on the scrotum that feels like a bag.
5. Stress and emotional pressure due to inability to conceive a child.

Post-testicular azoospermia – In this condition, sperms are produced, but don’t ejaculate. It affects 7-51% of azoospermic men. The main cause of this is physical obstruction of the post-testicular genital tract.

C- Trauma, surgery or radiation– Previous injury that damages pelvis, lower abdomen and spine may affect sperm production. Injury to the male sex organ can also lead to blockage of the flow of sperm.
(b) Non-Obstructive Azoospermia– It is the result of poor sperm production, which interferes with the production of sperms. It can be caused due to underlying reason.
A-Genetic cause– Certain defective genes present at birth can affect sperm production.
B- Radiation– Heat that is used to treat cancer may hinder sperm production and that can be chemotherapy treatment.
C- Variocele-Blood vessels are also called as vein and in the scrotum it may become enlarged and widened that can impair normal sperm production.
