Alternative Treatment Options
AID can be used in a couple in which the husband has azoospermia (no spermatozoa in the ejaculate), or has a genetic disease he does not want to pass to his offspring.
Another option for azoospermia is to do a testicular biopsy and use the found spermatozoa in an ICSI cycle.
