The term infertility is always thought that it is related to women. Which is not true, as men also face the issue with fertility.
With the advancement in technology and science, various treatment options are available to treat male infertility. There are various reasons which can be treated such as low sperm count, the issue with varicoceles, ejaculation issue, hormonal changes, certain health condition such as cancer, high blood pressure, and any type of infection.
This option is one of the best options to treat the problem. During the treatment, the egg is collected from women’s reproductive tract so that the sperm can fertilize the egg. The women are given hormones so that the ovaries produce a number of eggs. At least after 5 days, the fertilization process is done and the embryo will be put back into the uterus. It is used to treat the issue of female infertility as well as low sperm count.
- Donor sperm
Another option for low sperm treatment is donor sperm. This option is best when the sperm production is either zero or the sperm quality is not appropriate. You should consult the doctor as they guide you better about the entire procedure.
- ICSI with IVF
Another option is Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to treat the problem effectively. During the procedure, the sperm is inserted directly into one of the egg. For better results, this treatment is combined with ICSI by the best fertility clinics. The success rate of this option is also high and there is no type of risk of birth defects in the newborn baby.
- Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)
One of the treatment options is TESE which is really helpful in diagnosing the issue of low sperm count (azoospermia). During the procedure, the tissue is also taken for sperm extraction. From the testicle, either fresh or frozen sperm can be taken so that the women can conceive successfully.
- Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration
Another medical procedure which can be done at very low cost is PESA. During the medical procedure, the patient is given either local or general anesthesia. After that, the surgeon will insert a needle into the epididymis which also contains a syringe. With this, the fluid will be withdrawn very gently so that the sperm can be retrieved.
The doctor also advises this treatment option to treat infertility in men. During the procedure, the sperm is inserted directly into the female reproductive tract with the catheter. This option is mostly considered when the sperm count is very low, retrograde ejaculation, the problem with sperm movement, quality, and other unknown issues of infertility.
- Microsurgical Epididymal Sperm Aspiration
During the medical procedure, the sperm will be retrieved from the epididymal tubes. The benefit is that it only chooses the sperm which has proper motility. Further, the sperm can be frozen and thawed with the treatment of IVF.
