Men’s Health Week: All about Azoospermia
- Published on June 22, 2022
In an interview with HT Lifestyle ahead of the Men’s Health Week 2022, Dr. Souren Bhattacharjee, Consultant at Birla Fertility & IVF, revealed what azoospermia is and what are the types of it. Azoospermia, in simple terms, is a rare medical condition in which there is no sperm in the men’s ejaculation(semen) leading to male infertility.
There are two types of azoospermia- obstructive and non-obstructive. “When there is a blockage or a connection is missing in the epididymis, hormonal abnormalities, ejaculation problems, or concerns with testicular shape and function along your reproductive canal, this is called obstructive azoospermia,” Dr Souren explained. Non-obstructive Azoospermia, on the other hand, is defined as “poor or no sperm production due to problems in the structure or function of the testicles”
