Azoospermia means complete absence of sperm count in the semen. It may be caused by the testicular dysfunction, cancer chemotherapy, or blockage of the tubules of the epididymis, or it may be induced by vasectomy. Infertility, but not impotence, is associated with azoospermia.
Normal Sperm count:20 million / milliliter to 120 million / milliliter.
Causative factors for Azoospermia:
- Genetic conditions, such as congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens, may affect sperm transport.
- Infections of the male reproductive system, such as in the testicles or prostate
- Trauma may cause azoospermia. Previous injury or surgery to the spine, pelvis, lower abdomen, or male sexual organs may cause damage to the male reproductive system.
- This may include surgery on an inguinal hernia. Trauma may affect sperm production or cause an obstruction in the flow or transport of sperm.
- Varicocele is a condition that causes the veins (blood vessels) in the scrotum to become enlarged and dilated.
- Smoking, drinking alcohol, and using illegal drugs may also cause problems with sperm production.
Classification of Azoospermia:
- Pre-testicular azoospermia
- Testicular azoospermia
- Post-testicular azoospermia
- Idiopathic azoospermia
Signs and symptoms of Azoospermia?

Evaluation of Azoospermia:
Physical Examination - The simplest test is the physical examination. Since the bulk of the testes is comprised of the sperm producing elements, (the somniferous epithelium), if the size of the testicles is severely diminished, this is an indication that the somniferous epithelium is affected.
Hormonal Evaluation - Tran rectal Ultrasound-In order to rule out a blockage of the ejaculatory duct, an ultrasound of the ejaculatory duct and seminal vesicles is often.
Urinalysis - It is possible that ejaculation is occurring "backwards;" the sperm is being pushed into the bladder, and then washed out when the man urinates after ejaculation
