Surgical Sperm Recovery

Surgical Sperm Recovery 

There can be a variety of reasons for an absence of sperm in the semen, known as Azoospermia. Sperm collected through a surgical sperm recovery procedure are intended to be used with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) 

What Are The Possible Risks Of Surgical Sperm Recovery?

  1. Bruising and tenderness of the scrotum for 1 to 2 days after the procedure. Where an incision was necessary the stitches self-dissolve in 10 - 14 days.
  2. Mild discomfort or aching.
  3. Infection. All surgical procedures can cause infections.
  4. A failure to collect sperm.
