Can azoospermia be cured?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 12/12/2018

Although not very common, azoospermia may be temporary and, after a while, it may produce sperm without the need for surgery. These are the most common causes:

  • Flu with very high fevers can affect the production of sperm in the testicle, so it is possible that sperm may not be synthesized again at the time of the seminogram; it is recommended to wait about three weeks.
  • Steroids or anabolic agents used to increase muscle mass interfere with hormonal doses that stimulate spermatogenesis.
  • Some baldness treatments may decrease dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels, reducing final testosterone levels and affecting sperm production.
  • Very strong weight changes disrupt the endocrine system, so the hormone levels that regulate sperm formation and maturation may not be balanced and cause temporary azoospermia.

The specialists recommend repeating the seminogram after two or three months of interval to check if the azoospermia really prevails or if it is due to some extraordinary circumstance.
