Male Infertility and TESE Surgery

Doctor, What is TESE? Is there any medication to increase sperm count?

The maturation of Spermatozoa takes approximately 72 days. In human beings, sperm count will be in varying degrees. Hence repeated testing of at least two samples is required to confirm the diagnosis of male factor infertility. There are no medications to improve sperm counts. If motility and count are less, ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is performed through an instrument called a micro-manipulator. Suppose there is Obstructive Azoospermia due to obstruction in the passage of sperms. In that case, sperm retrieval is done by TESE – Testicular Sperm Extraction, and ICSI can be done by freezing the sample.
