Understanding Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA)

Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA) is a minimally invasive procedure performed to retrieve sperm directly from the testes. TESA is typically indicated for men who have little to no sperm in their semen (azoospermia), often due to a blockage in the sperm transport system or non-obstructive reasons like failed vasectomy reversal or congenital absence of the vas deferens.

The procedure involves the extraction of sperm through a needle directly from the testes under local anesthesia. The retrieved sperm are then used in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), particularly in Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), to facilitate fertilization.

FAQs and Answers

TESA stands for Testicular Sperm Aspiration. It's a minimally invasive procedure used to extract sperm directly from the testes, typically under local anesthesia. This technique is used when sperm are absent from the semen due to blockages or production issues.

TESA is recommended for men with azoospermia, either because sperm production is very low (non-obstructive azoospermia) or because of a blockage in the sperm transport system (obstructive azoospermia).

At Gunasheela, TESA is performed in a sterile environment, often under local anesthesia. A fine needle is inserted into the testes, and a small sample of tissue is aspirated. The procedure is relatively quick and aimed at minimizing discomfort.

Patients may experience mild discomfort or pressure during the procedure, but pain is generally minimal due to the use of local anesthesia. Post-procedure, pain is typically managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

While TESA is considered safe, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks, including bleeding, infection, or damage to the testicular tissue. Gunasheela takes stringent measures to minimize these risks.

Success rates can vary based on the underlying cause of azoospermia and individual factors. In cases of obstructive azoospermia, success rates are generally high. Gunasheela's specialists will discuss your specific chances of success.

Yes, sperm obtained through TESA can be used for ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) immediately or frozen for future use. The approach depends on the couple's treatment plan and readiness.

Preparation may include stopping certain medications or supplements that can increase bleeding risk. Gunasheela provides detailed pre-procedure instructions to ensure you're fully prepared.

Recovery time is typically short, with most men able to resume normal activities within a day or two. Any discomfort usually subsides within a week.

Costs can vary depending on the specifics of the procedure and whether additional fertility treatments are planned. Gunasheela offers transparent pricing information and financial counseling.

Yes, TESA is an option for men who have had a vasectomy and wish to father children. It bypasses the blockage caused by the vasectomy, allowing for the direct retrieval of sperm.

Gunasheela provides comprehensive support, including counseling and advice on fertility options following TESA. Our team is dedicated to ensuring patients and their partners are well-informed and supported throughout their fertility journey.
