There are 2 main categories of azoospermia:

  • Obstructive azoospermia: It means sperm production is there but it gets blocked somewhere from the testicle to the ejaculatory duct in the urethra.
  • Nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA): It means sperm production is not enough in the semen. The testicles produce sperm in small quantities which will be extracted surgically so that they can be used with IVF or production of sperm is absent. This condition does not mean the sperm production is not possible.

Symptoms of Azoospermia

Azoospermia is the reason behind male infertility which means when the couple tries to conceive it becomes difficult. It might be possible that there is some underlying condition that is triggering the problem. The issues like hormonal imbalance, inherited the disease, dilated veins around the testicle, or the sperm passage is being blocked which can lead to this condition.

It can trigger the problem of sexual functioning, swelling and pain in the testicle area, decreased body hair, recurrent respiratory infections, or hormonal abnormality.

Semen production

Semen production problems can occur when men are facing infertility. With azoospermia, sperm level is very low. Some other things can also affect sperm density and abnormal sperm mobility issues can be triggered. It is also possible that sperm shape is not proper which makes it difficult to fertilize the egg.

Testicular problem

In some cases, the men have a problem with testicles. Due to the surgery, the testicles got affected, or because of trauma, cancer. It might be possible that within the testicles the small tubes get blocked which makes it difficult for the sperm to ejaculate.

Hormonal issue

The hormonal issue can also cause a problem when the testosterone level is low. This can occur because of various reasons like taking certain medications, tumors, or congenital disorders.

Lifestyle choices

What you do in your daily life also impact sperm production.  You need to cut back the consumption of alcohol, cigarettes, and drug consumption.


Men facing the azoospermia condition can get few treatment options like surgery to get rid of the blockage. In case, the blockage occurred recently then there are high chances that surgery will be successful. Another way is taking out the sperm from the testicle which can be used with IVF treatment. Make sure you seek the help of the doctor as every patient’s condition is different.
