- Pretesticular Azoospermia: It is characterized by inadequate stimulation even having normal testicles and genital tract. Basically low level of follicle stimulation hormone causes the inadequate stimulation of the tests.
- Testicular Azoospermia: In this condition tests are not normal, and sperm production is absent. This condition is common with the male having problem of Azoospermia. Causes of this problem can be congenital issues and some genetic conditions. It may be caused by traumatic surgery , cancer, radiation or some infection.

In case of male infertility with no sperm then the semen sample is taken for additional evaluation in which semen sample is centrifuged and spun. If there is even one sperm in the pellet analysis then the conditions of reproductive tract obstruction are disapproved.
