What is the Azoospermia Treatment Cost in India?

Azoospermia, the absence of sperm in semen, is a significant cause of male infertility.   In fact, this condition has been recognized as one of the most intriguing disorders in male infertility. According to NIH, azoospermia is affecting about 1% of the male population and 10-15% of infertile men. As awareness about male infertility grows, more men are seeking azoospermia treatment in India. Therefore, understanding the azoospermia treatment cost in India is crucial for couples planning their journey towards parenthood.

Typically, azoospermia treatment cost in India may range from Rs. 25,000 – 1,50,000. This is an approximate cost range which may differ from one person to another depending on various factors including type of technique, severity of the disorder and age of the male. In this blog, we will explore types of azoospermia treatment methods and all the contributing factors that can influence the final azoospermia treatment cost in India.

Types of Azoospermia Treatments and Their Costs

Azoospermia conditions are categorized into two different types based on their characteristics: Obstructive azoospermia (OA) and Non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA). Each type requires different treatment options, which vary in complexity and cost. Let’s understand the different types of azoospermia treatment methods along with their approximate cost range:

  • Hormonal Therapy

Hormonal treatment can help some men with azoospermia by stimulating sperm production. This is commonly advised as one of the initial azoospermia treatments and involves administering drugs such as gonadotropins or clomiphene citrate.

  • Surgical Sperm Retrieval

In cases of obstructive azoospermia, sperms can be retrieved directly from the testicles or epididymis through surgical procedures, such as:

  • Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (PESA)

This minimally invasive procedure involves using a fine needle to extract sperm from the epididymis.

  1. Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (PESA): This minimally invasive procedure involves using a fine needle to extract sperm from the epididymis.
  2. Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA): Similar to PESA, TESA involves extracting sperm directly from the testicles using a needle.
  3. Microsurgical Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (MESA): This is a more complex procedure compared to the two mentioned before, in this method expert uses a surgical microscope to find and collect sperm from the epididymis.
  4. Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE): In this procedure, a small tissue sample is taken from the testicle to retrieve sperm.
  5. Micro-TESE: This advanced technique includes using a microscope to identify areas of the testicle that are likely to contain sperm. This technique is more effective for men with non-obstructive azoospermia.
  • Varicocele Repair

In males, varicoceles (enlarged veins in the scrotum) can result in azoospermia. To correct that, experts recommend varicocele repair surgery that helps in improving sperm production.

  • IVF-ICSI (In Vitro Fertilization with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection)

When sperm retrieval is successful, IVF-ICSI can be used to fertilize the eggs. This assisted reproduction technique involves injecting a single sperm directly into an egg.
