If treatment for azoospermia fails, what are my options to have a baby?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 12/14/2018

If none of the options to treat azoospermia works, there exist other alternatives to have children with azoospermia. In cases of obstructive azoospermia, a technique called ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) can be used with sperm that has been directly collected from the testis, either through testicular biopsy, or epididymal or testicular aspiration.

With non-obstructive/secretory azoospermia, or when ICSI is unsuccessful, sperm donation is the most recommendable option. See also: What Is Sperm Donation?
