Dear C

Apart from the sperm analysis it is imperative that a testicular biopsy be done to verify whether there is any sperm production within the testicle. If sperm production can be confirmed within the testicle then it is still possible to have conception using invitro fertilisation with microinjection technology. Testosterone will not improve sperm production. A testicular biopsy is important to distinguish between obstructive and non- obstructive causes of azoospermia (no sperm in the ejaculate).
