Six Culprits Are Inducing Azoospermia in Men

In today's society, if men want normal and healthy fertility, the healthy growth of men's sperm is an essential prerequisite. Otherwise, everything will be ignored. Generally speaking, azoospermia is when there is no sperm in men's ejaculated semen, leading to male infertility.

Azoospermia accounts for about 15% - 20% of male infertility patients. There are many causes, which can be summarized into two categories.
One is the dysfunction of the testis itself, which is called primary azoospermia or nonobstructive azoospermia.
Second, the testicular spermatogenesis function is normal, but due to the blockage of the spermatic duct, the sperm cannot be discharged from the body, which is called obstructive azoospermia.
What are the specific culprits of azoospermia?
Endocrine abnormality
Sperm production is a process that is affected by endocrine function. For example, androgen, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and even prolactin are involved in interfering with testicular stimulation. When the level of endocrine hormone is abnormal, azoospermia may be caused. At this time, it is necessary to find the endocrine reasons for active treatment.
Testicular lesion
There are pathological changes in the testis itself. Even if the hormone level in the body is normal, azoospermia can also be caused. Azoospermia caused by pathological testicular changes can be effectively treated.
For example, when patients with rheumatism or rheumatism take drugs, they may not be able to produce sperm in their testes, but this situation can be recovered only by stopping the drug.
Severe varicocele patients may also have azoospermia, but such cases are rare. Most patients can recover spermatogenesis through a series of treatments, such as surgery.
Congenital cryptorchidism
In some male congenital cryptorchidism, two testes in the abdominal cavity due to high-temperature stimulation destroy the testes' nerve function. Even if the testes were removed from the body can not generate sperm normally.
Viral mumps
In the past, when the medical conditions were poor, viral mumps could not be treated in time, which would easily lead to the destruction of nerve tissue of bilateral testes, leading to irreversible azoospermia.
The congenital genetic disease
Some men have congenital, inherited diseases, such as "Sertoli cell only syndrome". That is, there are only Sertoli cells but no nerve cells. Men with this congenital, inherited disease cannot produce sperm.
Men have many causes of azoospermia, and most azoospermia can be recovered after etiological treatment.
The etiology of azoospermia is complex and diverse, and targeted treatment is needed. It is divided into antibiotic and surgical treatment. Antibiotics mainly cure an infection of the reproductive system and eliminate adhesion. For azoospermia caused by some reproductive system diseases, such as prostatitis, orchitis, and seminal vesiculitis, the Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is also a good choice. 
There is also hormone replacement therapy. It is mainly to supplement the insufficient hormone level in patients and improve fertility. 
Surgical treatment is mainly to repair obstructed vas deferens and treat varicocele.
It is suggested that azoospermic men should go to the hospital for examination in time. Further treatment plans should be adopted under the guidance of doctors after the cause of azoospermia is identified to avoid blind and passive treatment.
