Intro to Surgical Sperm Retrieval Procedures

If fathering a child is your dream but you’re still suffering from extremely low numbers of sperm in your semen, your doctor may suggest you undergo surgical sperm retrieval or harvesting. Around 10% to 15% of infertile men have extremely low sperm count, but they still can increase their chances by trying this method. 
Sperm retrieval refers to any method used to get sperm for fertility purposes. Clearly, there are many ways to get sperm, and they’re divided into nonsurgical and surgical methods. 
Nonsurgical methods include penile vibratory stimulation (PVS) and electroejaculation (EEJ). Surgical methods, on the other hand, include testicular sperm extraction (TESE), testicular sperm aspiration (TESA), percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA), and others. 
Nonetheless, doctors often utilize in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to achieve pregnancy following surgical sperm retrieval.

    Candidates for Surgical Sperm Retrieval

    Surgical sperm retrieval will be a great option for you in case you have no sperm in your semen due to blockage. This problem can occur as a result of the following reasons:

    • Previous vasectomy
    • Sexually transmitted infection
    • Retrograde ejaculation or anejaculation (inability to ejaculate normally)
    • Sperm production problems due to chemotherapy, genetic conditions, or testicle removal

    Preparation for Surgical Sperm Retrieval

    To prepare you for the procedure, your doctor is likely to do the following:
    • Perform fertility evaluation for you and your partner
    • Obtain medical history and perform a complete physical exam
    • Request laboratory testing to investigate sperm count and health
    • Request testicular biopsy to determine the cause of low sperm count
    • Choose or recommend the sperm retrieval method that suits you best

    Steps of Surgical Sperm Retrieval

    The steps of surgical sperm retrieval differ depending on the technique used. Each technique has its own special tools and steps. Testicular sperm aspiration (TESA) is the simplest and most cost-effective method. Doctors perform TESA in their clinics and only need 10 minutes to complete it. Below are the steps of this method:

    1. Anesthesia

    First, your doctor gives you a local anesthetic agent to numb your testicles.

    2. Sperm Aspiration

    Next, they use a needle to aspirate sperm and testicular tissue.

    3. Sperm Evaluation & Freezing

    Finally, they send the sperm to the laboratory to evaluate and cryopreserve them.

    Recovery After Surgical Sperm Retrieval

    Regardless of the technique used, the recovery period after the procedure ranges from a few days to a week. If you have stitches, you will need more time to recover. Most men get quick recovery without complications. Instructions to follow during this period include:
    • Avoid strenuous activity and wear a jockstrap during the recovery phase
    • You can use ice packs to alleviate discomfort and encourage healing
    • Your doctor may give you antibiotics before and after the procedure to avoid infection
    • You can return to your office work after 1-2 days. However, if your work is heavy, you need to wait 5-10 days.
    • Avoid sexual intercourse for 4 days.

    Risks of Surgical Sperm Retrieval

    Surgical sperm retrieval is a safe procedure, but it is still carrying some potential risks, such as:

    • Pain, infection, or bleeding
    • Failure to find sperm
    • The need to undergo other procedures
    • Testicular damage (rare)
