No, it is not possible. Azoospermia is a sperm disorder whereby no sperm are found in the semen. Thus, given that no sperm is found under the microscope we cannot guess if morphology is normal or not. In fact, in cases of secretory or non-obstructive azoospermia, there is no single sperm in the ejaculate.
