Complementary tests for the diagnosis of azoospermia

Although the test par excellence for the study of male fertility is the semen analysis, there are also other additional tests. When the result of the seminogram shows that the male suffers from azoospermia, that is, absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculate, it can be carried out:

  • Physical examination and palpation in case there is any alteration in the testicles, varicocele, etc.
  • Testicular biopsy to check if it is a secretory or obstructive azoospermia.
