What is Azoospermia?
Azoospermia is a medical term in which there is no measurable sperm found in a man’s semen. In a nutshell, zero sperm count is known as azoospermia. It is one of the main causes of the main infertility. About 1 percent of men suffer from azoospermia and about 10 to 15 percent of infertile men have zero sperm count.
What are the types of Azoospermia?
There are two types of azoospermia.
- Obstructive Azoospermia
- Nonobstructive Azoospermia
In this type of nil sperm count, you are producing normal sperms but the reproductive tract for both testicles is blocked. There is a missing connection in vas deferens, epididymis or anywhere in the reproductive tract therefore, there is no sperm get into your semen.
In this type of zero sperm count, you have a poor sperm production. You are not making enough or measurable amount of sperm to show up in the semen.
What are the Causes of Azoospermia?
Causes of Obstructive Azoospermia
Obstruction can occur in:
Epididymis: This coiled shape tube is present on the back of each testicle to mature the sperms
Vas Deferens: This is the tube that transports your sperm from epididymis
Ejaculatory Duct: This tube helps the sperms to exit into the urethra and mix it with fluid to produce semen
There are a number of reasons that result in blockage of epididymis:
- Scrotal injury or trauma
- Infections (Epididymitis)
- Rare genetic conditions that will either cause a blockage or abnormal development
Surgery on Vas Deferens
Vasectomy, a surgical procedure to cut vas deferens to stop the flow of sperm. There are many conditions that can cause the same impact:
- Previous surgery for other reasons like hernia
- Trauma or injury
- Cystic fibrosis
Ejaculatory Duct Blockages
Some ejaculatory ducts are blocked from birth. Others can be acquired:
- Prior surgery
Causes of Nonobstructive Azoospermia
There are a number of causes of nonobstructive azoospermia:
- Hormonal Imbalances

It can be a possible cause of azoospermia in males.
Veins present in the scrotum may become enlarged or widened and can result in negative impact on sperm production.
Klinefelter’s syndrome is a genetic mutation in which a man carries extra X chromosome and makes the chromosome XXY instead of XY.
Y Chromosome deletion is another cause in genetics when the male chromosome that is responsible for sperm production is missing. It can cause about 10 percent of azoospermia cases.
