DIAGNOSIS OF AZOOSPERMIA Azoospermia is defined as the complete absence of sperm from the ejaculate.

Can a sperm donor help a man with azoospermia?

Azoospermia is the absence of spermatozoa in the semen on two centrifuged semen samples. It affects 1% of the general population and up to 15% of infertile men (Jarow et al., 1989). Azoospermia takes two forms: obstructive conditions due to blockages within the reproductive tract, and nonobstructive disorders generally due to testicular failure.
