Azoospermia – absent sperms in semen


Azoospermia is defined as the absence of sperms in semen
There are 2 major types:

1. Non-obstructive azoospermia

2. Obstructive azoospermia



In patients with no block to sperm passage, the production itself is very less, however sperms may be available inside the testis.

There may be good production of sperms but due to block in passage none of the sperms can reach the semen.
