Patient: 3 years ago did a testicular biopsy and was diagnosed with non – obstructive azoospermia is there any hope for me? please help its depressing me
Doctor: Azoospermia means absence of sperms from semen. It could be obstructive where male genital tract obstruction can be corr ected surgically, or non-obstructive which is either pretesticular or testicular. Pretesticular conditions are due to hormonal imbalance, most of which can be corrected by appropriate medication. But in testicular condition testis fail to produce sperms which is more or less permanent. So it must be diagnosed first whether pretesticular or testicular to identify treatment options. Followup with a physician for further management.
