Vitamins for non-obstructive azoospermia

    • <span  class="bbp-author-name">Thomas</span>


      my semen analysis came up with non-obstructive azoospermia. What I have understood so far that this is reversible by adapting a healthier lifestyle? Do I need to change my diet and include certain vitamins into my nutrition? My wife and I are willing to wait for another 3-4 months in order to see if my sperm production improves so we can try for a natural pregnancy.

    • Hi Thomas,

      Patients with non-obstructive azoospermia can incorporate vitamins such as maca root, a plant that grows in the central Andes (Peru and Bolivia) that is known for its aphrodisiac properties and benefits for male fertility. In cases of long-term azoospermia that is not due to stress or medications, there exists no natural remedy that can cause the testis to produce sperm.

      Hope this answers your question,

      Best regards

      • Hi!

        So assuming that my type of azoospermia can not be treated naturally, which pregnancy options would we have then?

      • Hello Thomas,

        Males with non-obstructive azoospermia need to resort to sperm donation. It involves doing an Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with sperm donated by a young, healthy man. Sperm donors are medically and psychologically pre-screened to verify their state of health and confirm that their sample is in optimum conditions for being used.

        Choosing between IUI or IVF depends on the characteristics of the female partner, including age, tubal patency, etc. Read more about conceiving with azoospermia here: How can I conceive with azoospermia?

        Also, if you want to find out if you need IUI or IVF with sperm donation, I recommend you access our fertility report. This is a free tool that helps you determine the appropriate fertility treatment in your case and includes a cost budget, clinics in your area as well as tips for your first clinic visit.

        Hope this helps,

        wish you all the best.
