What is Azoospermia?
. It is a condition in which a man has no sperm in his ejaculate..
There are two types of azoospermia:
· Obstructive Azoospermia: Obstructive azoospermia accounts for 40% of all cases of azoospermia. It occurs when a blockage in the duct system. These obstructions may be present in the vas deferens or epididymis.
· Non-Obstructive Azoospermia: Non-obstructive azoospermia accounts for 60% of all cases of azoospermia. It occurs when there is a problem with the actual production of. It is often the result of hormonal imbalances.
The are typically two main causes of azoospermia: a problem with sperm production or a problem with sperm transport. There are a variety of factors that may contribute to either of these causes.
Sperm Production Problems
Sometimes, azoospermia is the result of a dysfunction within the testes themselves, making it impossible for the body to produce enough viable sperm. In order to produce sperm, the proper cells (germinal epithelial cells )need to be present in the testes and the proper hormones(FSH, TESTOSTERONE ) need to trigger sperm production. Failed sperm production is often the result of:
· Hormonal Abnormalities: Sometimes body may not produce enough ofcertain hormones involved in the sperm-production , causing azoospermia.
· Cryptorchidism: Cryptorchidism, or undescended testicles, is a condition in which the testes have not descended properly. It is generally corrected in childhood, however, if it isn’t corrected, the testicles will be unable to produce sperm properly.
· Vascular Trauma: Trauma to the testes or to the blood vessels within the testes can also prevent the producing sperm.
· Varicocele causes veins in the testes to enlarge and become swollen. As a result, blood pools in the testes, impairing sperm production.
Sperm Transport Problems
In order for sperm to leave our body, it must be transported from the testes to the urethra. Sperm travels through a series of ducts inside the reproductive system, until it eventually mixes the your ejaculate and exits your body. Sometimes, blockages can occur inside of these ducts preventing sperm from mixing with your ejaculate.
Sperm transport problems are often caused by:
· Vasectomy: The vasectomy procedure introduces a cut or blockage in the vas deferens, preventing sperm from mixing with your ejaculate.
· Congenital Absence of Vans Deferens: Some men are born without the vas deferens, which are tiny tubes that carry sperm to the urethra for ejaculation.
· Infection: Certain infections, including STDS, can cause blockages in the epididymis or vas deferens, preventing sperm from mixing with the semen
All the above sickness can be fruitfully treated with Homoeopathic medicines. If germinal epithelial cells are detected with the help of testicular biopsy, then homoeopathic treatment is highly hopeful.
Hormonal Abnormalities, and blockagecan be cured with homeopathic medicines
