There are many couples waiting for a natural pregnancy and trying to reach a fertility for at least one year. These couples are evaluated in detail and the outcomes of the researches are confirming that reproductive disorders are in common rate seen by men as female related fertility issues. According to research we can assume that 50 % are men related obstacles. Most seen male infertility factor is azoospermia, which means there is no sperm found or severe structural defects are found in sperm.
It is needed to start with a treatment, if these cases occur in men without losing time. We do recommend to start solve these obstacles before the age factor will have an influence which means that couples who try having a baby will require a more challenging process. The Micro Tese/TESA method used for a long time against various sperm problems, such as the absence of healthy sperm cells in the male, gives very successful results in terms of achieving a pregnancy.
What is the Micro Tese/TESA?
With the advantages that microscopic surgical operations called Tesa or Micro Tese, is it possible to solve men who have no healthy sperm in their semen are helped with selection of live sperm in the testicles so that sperm can be obtained in this way. Tesa and micro-tese operations are carried out successfully at our Cyprus Miracle IVF Centre by Dr. Firdevs.
If we summarize the process briefly;
In the testicular tissue of the male there are thousands of structures similar to small tubes and even if the sperm does not come out, sperm production continues within these structures. There may not be sperm production in each tube, while there are some and there may not be little or no production in some. Therefore, we search and control from different places.
TESA is the process of entering and removing sperm from the skin by injecting a needle into the tissue inside the man’s testicles. If sperm cannot be obtained with this application, Micro Tese is a solution. The Micro Tese is the method of finding sperm under a microscope from the sperm producing tubes. Particles taken from different areas of the testis tissue are examined and depending on the reason for the process, 25-50% of the sperm cells are found live. In addition to this, the Micro Tese method is also minimized the damaging of the vein caused by biopsy.
Our specialised embryologists and urologist are performing testicular spermatozoids easily to select little parts that is useful for a fertilisation.
Sperm production problems are for 70% solved with this method. However there are also genetic related factors that are disturbing to find healthy sperm cells.

It is a painless operation that lasts about half an hour, which does not cause any pain or discomfort for the man. After the procedure, there is no need to rest for a long time or to lie down in the hospital. The patient can easily continue to his normal activities, to keep only the main points listed here below in mind is enough.

Sperm can be obtained in the first application of micro tese method, but not every sperm can be alive and once found and selected these in the sperms, there is a possibility of not obtaining it the next application.
