A Low Sperm Count May Not Be a Barrier to Pregnancy

An IVF program can rely on successful sperm retrieval.

In assisted reproductive technology, sperm retrieval for IVF is crucial, particularly in cases where male factor infertility is a challenge and getting pregnant with a low sperm count may seem like an insurmountable obstacle. At V Fertility Center, located within Vejthani Hospital in Bangkok, we offer a range of advanced sperm retrieval procedures to help couples have a baby through in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Let’s explore the various techniques available and why V Fertility Center is the premier choice for your fertility needs.


Sperm Retrieval Procedures at V Fertility Center

Our fertility services include four types of sperm retrieval as part of our IVF program. Together, these techniques mean that a low sperm count may not be a barrier to pregnancy. Our techniques include:


Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (PESA)

PESA is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia. During PESA, a small needle is inserted directly into the epididymis, the tube where sperm is stored, to retrieve sperm. This technique is often used in cases of obstructive azoospermia, where the vas deferens, the long tube running from the scrotum to the ejaculatory duct, is blocked, preventing sperm from reaching the urethra.


Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA)

TESA involves the aspiration of sperm directly from the testes using a thin needle. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. It’s suitable for men with non-obstructive azoospermia, where the testes produce sperm, but the sperm doesn’t reach the ejaculatory duct due to various factors such as hormonal imbalances or testicular damage.


Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)

TESE is similar to TESA but involves the removal of a small tissue sample from the testes instead of aspirating sperm directly. The tissue sample is then dissected to isolate viable sperm for use in IVF or ICSI. TESE is often recommended for cases of severe male factor infertility or when previous sperm retrieval attempts have been unsuccessful.
