There is a common perception that parents who are not able conceive a baby is due to infertility issues of the female. But what people tend to overlook is that male infertility is also a major cause for couples who are not able to conceive a baby. A variety of factors in the ever changing world has led to infertility issues in men as well. Be it sedentary lifestyle or work based pressures which lead to such issues. But male infertility treatments are now available and put to wide use to treat wide ranging infertility issues in men.
The major type of male infertility is the low sperm count. This low sperm count in males can be due to many reasons. The low sperm count makes it hard for the couple to conceive. Some of the basic tests to determine the male sperm count and other contributing factors for male infertility are TESA, PESA or TESE.
TESA known as Testicular Sperm Aspiration is daycare biopsy based operation where testicular sperms are retrieved. In this a small biopsy from the testicle are taken. This procedure is used in the extraction of sperms in males having low sperm count. When the patients have a low sperm count the sperms are not able to reach the ejaculation stage thereby leading to male infertility. But by extracting the sperms directly from the testicles it has been made possible to fertilize those sperms.
Such sperm aspiration procedures go a long way in treating the male infertility. These male infertility treatment are then combined with Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (I.C.S.I) or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
When we talk about the cost for male infertility treatment, these cost are always calculated with combination of sperm extraction and sperm injection. The cost for sperm extraction techniques range from USD $1200 and then combined with sperm injection technique that will cost around USD$5500 – $6000. Also it would be important to note that sometimes more than one sperm injection cycle is required to successfully inject the sperms.

Depending upon your type of infertility condition the doctor will prescribe some basic blood tests to determine the course of male infertility treatment. Post blood test results the sperm extraction process is finalized. This sperm extraction can be TESA, PESA or TESE. Once the sperms are extracted successfully then we move on to the sperm injection process that can be IVF or ICSI.
