Can natural pregnancy be achieved with secretory azoospermia?

By Rebeca Reus BSc, MSc (embryologist).
Last Update: 12/21/2021

Any form of azoospermia, secretory and obstructive, prevents natural pregnancy, since the ejaculate does not contain spermatozoa. As for secretory azoospermia, it will not be possible to achieve pregnancy through assisted reproduction either, since there is no sperm production.

Depending on the cause of the azoospermia, it will be possible to administer a hormonal treatment capable of restoring spermatogenesis to achieve pregnancy with secretory azoospermia, even with in vitro fertilization (IVF). If it is not possible to restore sperm production, gestation can be achieved by sperm donation.
