The Science & Medicine of Male Reproduction

A common question: can sperm from a retrieval be used for IUI?

Many people ask me this question. The answer is no. Here is why:
1: Not enough motile sperm from a TESE
2: Not enough good quality sperm from a PESA or MESA
3: Simply does not work

For better results, try either having a vasectomy reversal or a sperm retrieval in conjunction with an IVF cycle.
