What are Sperm Retrieval Procedures?

Sperm retrieval procedure
Sperm retrieval procedures offered by Aeva Fertility include an array of surgeries that involve extraction of sperms directly from a man’s testicles or epididymis. The collected sperm is used for the fertilization of an egg during the procedures such as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).

Who Requires This Procedure?

The procedure is recommended for men who are suffering from a disorder called Azoospermia which is the lack of sperm in the ejaculate. This mainly occurs due to a blockage in the tube that delivers sperms to the ejaculate or due to some defect in the production of sperm.

Types Of Sperm Retrieval Surgeries


This process is done in coordination with the egg extraction to retrieve sperms from men having obstructive azoospermia.


This is done for men suffering from obstructive azoospermia due to vasectomy or infection.


This process involves making a small incision in the testicles to examine the tubules for the presence of sperm.


This is performed for patients with vassal or epididymal obstruction. This process allows extensive sperm collection compared to all other similar processes.


This is done for men with sperm production problems and is generally performed a day before the egg extraction. This is considered one of the safer processes since less testicular tissues are removed.

What to Expect?

Sperm retrieval procedures do not involve much criticality as they are mainly day care procedures that involve the use of anaesthesia. Our male fertility expert will help the patient get a comprehensive understanding of the surgical procedure he might need and how much risk that procedure involves.

The chances of retrieving a healthy sperm are nearly 60%, however it may vary depending upon a number of factors such as patient’s age, health, and medical history. Sperm retrieval can be done simultaneously with egg extraction so that fresh sperms are harvested in co-ordination with eggs.

You can also opt for cryopreserving your sperms if you and your partner decide on having separate harvesting sessions. Moreover, the frozen sperms can later be used for future ICSI cycles if the first one fails to yield result. Also, you can use the sperm if you want more children in future.
