IS PESA / TESA FOR ME?

These procedures are used for obstructive azoospermia and vasal aplasia.

HOW IS PESA / TESA SPERM USED?

Sperm retrieved using PESA/TESA can be used to attempt to achieve a pregnancy using an assisted reproduction technique called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). In order to perform ICSI, the female partner will need to undergo routine ovulation induction and egg collection (egg collection is usually performed on the same day as the PESA/TESA). Sperm that has been isolated during a PESA/TESA can then be injected into the eggs collected from the female partner.

WHAT IS THE SUCCESS RATE OF THIS PROCEDURE?

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment using PESA/TESA sperm is a commonly performed procedure and has similar success rates to routine IVF.
