Sometimes men don’t produce sperms in their ejaculate and therefore we need to then remove the sperm surgically either through a process called PESA or TESA and then freeze them as a testicular tissue or removing the sperm high up from the tubules that they have in their testicles. We still can freeze those successfully and get them thawed and produce enough sperm to be used for treatments in ICSI.

About this question:

What are the options of treatment for men who do not produce sperm?

Men who do not produce sperm in their ejaculate can be referred for one of the surgical procedures like TESA.
TESA is performed with a needle, which is inserted in the testicle to obtain sperm for IVF/ICSI treatment. How exactly does it work? When is it indicated?
