What is TESA?

TESA (Testicular Sperm Aspiration) is a fertility treatment that is used to extract sperm directly from the testicles for use in in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI). It is a procedure that is typically used for men who have a condition known as non-obstructive azoospermia, which is a condition where there is no sperm in the semen due to a blockage in the reproductive tract or a problem with sperm production.

TESA is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically performed under local anaesthesia. During the procedure, a small needle is inserted into the testicle to extract a small amount of tissue. The tissue is then examined under a microscope to locate and retrieve sperm. The sperm is then used in IVF or IUI to fertilize an egg and create an embryo.

TESA is a highly effective treatment option for men with non-obstructive azoospermia. Up to 80% of men who undergo TESA can produce sperm that can be used for IVF or IUI. It also has a high success rate, with many couples going on to have successful pregnancies after undergoing TESA.

If you are a man with non-obstructive azoospermia, TESA may be a viable treatment option for you. It is important to consult with a fertility specialist to determine if TESA is the right treatment for you and to understand the potential risks and benefits of the procedure.
