Is a natural pregnancy possible with obstructive azoospermia?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 12/13/2018

Yes, it is possible in cases where a surgical procedure allows the passage of sperm through the vasa deferentia and epididymis again.

In any case, even though surgery can allow the passage of sperm, it is possible that sperm quality is insufficient as to fertilize the egg. For this reason, sometimes, in spite of having fixed the obstruction surgically, conceiving via assisted reproduction is still required.
