Statistics indicate around 1/3rd of all cases of infertility can be linked to the male partner. Male infertility is generally linked to sperm disorders such as low sperm count, abnormal sperm shape, or poor sperm motility. A standard semen analysis test can be conducted to determine the cause immediately.
Generally, the sperm count of a fertile male would be in the range of 200 million, while the count considered normal for fertilization is around 20 million per millilitre. More than half the sperm cells in the sample need to be mobile, while at least a third should be of normal shape. However, most cases of male infertility can be overcome through Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) treatment, where a single sperm cell is injected into the centre of an egg to achieve fertilization.
Azoospermia (zero sperm), defined as the absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculate after the assessment of centrifuged semen on at least two occasions, is observed in 1% of the general population and in 10 - 15% of infertile men with low volume of sperm.
Surgical sperm retrieval techniques are applied in azoospermia cases of either obstructive or non-obstructive aetiology. The approach to azoospermic patients has changed significantly with the introduction of sperm retrieval techniques and assisted reproductive technologies, especially intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). In addition to improving pregnancy rates using sperm from ejaculated semen, ICSI has provided new possibilities for achieving pregnancy with sperm retrieved from the epididymis or testis.
