Diagnosed with non obstructive azoospermia. What are the treatment options available other than ICSI?

My husband has been told he has non obstructive azoospermia . he had a biopsy and they retrieved sperm, i wonder how it s possible for him to have no blockage but have sperm. is there anything we can do other than ICSI to become pregnant. We ve had 5 ICSI s and 2 frozen transfers using his frozen sperm from biopsy but none were sucessful, we were told his sperm were good quality when retrieved.

Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr Das
Look, there is problem in the microenvironment. That means, in testis, for production of sperm, a special microenvironment is essential. When there is any problem, then the production of the sperm is hampered. In these condition, non obstructive azoospermia can occur.

So, there is really no treatment available except the ICSI.
