Male Infertility Treatment

Treatment of male infertility is dependent upon the cause of the infertility problem identified in the male partner. Male infertility doctors may suggest a number of treatments such as:

Treatment for sexual disorders

Disorders such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation can be treated with the proper medication.

  • Treatment for infections

Infections in the reproductive tract may contribute to some fertility problems. Antibiotics may be prescribed to such individuals.

  • Hormone treatment and medication

When there is an elevation or reduction in levels of certain hormones, fertility specialists may prescribe certain hormone treatments which can help restore fertility.

  • Surgery

Male infertility surgery is recommended for conditions such as varicoceles and obstructive vas deferens. Vasectomies done previously can also be reversed.


IVF- ICSI can help couples conceive by directly fertilizing a sperm with an ovum to form an embryo. This embryo is then transferred to the uterus of the female partner for implantation. IUI can also be used in case of mild problems in semen analysis.

●     Sperm Retrieval Techniques (TESA/ TESE)

Sperm retrieval is an alternative when a couple intends to conceive a child but requires a little assistance to do so. It can be opted in case of low sperm count and motility,  ejaculation problems like anejaculation and retrograde ejaculation and azoospermia which is a condition marked by no sperms in the semen. Sperms retrieved surgically in such cases are then used in IVF-ICSI to form embryos which can then produce pregnancy.

Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)

 It is a surgical procedure performed to extract sperm tissue directly from the seminiferous tubules of the male testes via tiny surgical incisions. The procedure is recommended to males having elevated levels of testosterone in their blood or do not respond to any treatment for azoospermia. The procedure is carried out under the influence of a nerve block injection, such that the patient does not feel any discomfort.

Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA)

This procedure is somewhat similar to TESE, the only difference being that instead of making incisions, this involves the use of a thin needle which is punctured into the testes to gently extract the sperms.

Microsurgical Testicular Sperm Extraction (Micro-TESE)

 The procedure can only be opted by males suffering from non-obstructive azoospermia. It involves the opening of the outer cover of the testes for better access which in turn helps in precise and detailed examination. One of the greatest advantages of the procedure is that it ensures lesser damage to the blood vessels.
