What is Azoospermia?

Most fertile men have a sperm concentration of at least 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen. Azoospermia is when a man produces semen, but it does not contain any sperm. Diagnosis of azoospermia can be made by obtaining at least two semen analyses that show no sperm. There are two types of azoospermia:

  • Obstructive Azoospermia (OA)
  • Non-Obstructive Azoospermia (NOA)

Obstructive Azoospermia

In obstructive azoospermia, sperm is produced by the testicles, but a blockage or absence of vas deferens prevents the sperm from traveling to the ejaculate.

Non-Obstructive Azoospermia

Non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) is a condition in which not enough sperm is produced in order to have a detectable amount in the semen and is diagnosed in approximately 10% of infertile men.
